Your nominations for March 2014 Cache of the Month are:

Mystery Cache Icon GC46QQY: Journey of the Spirit by Mn-treker
nominated by yellowdogs
We would like to nominate GC46QQY "Journey of the Spirit" by Mn-treker for cache of the month. This is a very well set up cache requiring you to find several caches along the Rum River either by canoe or walking on ice. It is obvious that the CO has spent a lot of time and effort in fabrication of the containers, their placement and the cache pages. We feel this series represents what geocaching is all about. It takes you on a journey along the beautiful Rum River during any season of the year. Very Happy

Multi Cache Icon GC3E1QP: Reflections on Minnesota Geocaching by tonkaMN
nominated by JAYMZ*BRONX
I would like to nominate GC3E1QP Reflections on Minnesota Geocaching by tonkaMN
This is a Multi located in Minnetonka, it's not a hard one but the creativeness of stage one is very unique!! Don't think it will be duplicated. J*B Very Happy

If you have any words/reviews for any of the caches up for voting, please share then here by posting a reply...

Voting will be open till the end of the month*. Good luck to all the nominees and keep those great caches coming!

*Note: Due to how the polling works in phpBB the poll may be open for some time past 11:59:59 pm on the last day of the month, or may end sometime during the last day of the month. While we will do what we can to make sure this poll stays open through the month, there is no reason to wait till the last minute. You get one vote and it counts the same no matter when you make it. When a poll is open it is set to be open for a certain number of days, so if for some reason the poll can't be open right at 11:59:59 (say a production issue at work, busy with non-caching activities, feel asleep, etc) then there may be some 'bonus' voting time.

Reflections is on my short list. But does anyone know if the caches required for Journey are findable right now with all of the snow, and presumably dangerous ice?

All caches for Journey of the Spirit are findable. Three possibly four may be under the snow but have been found this winter. One requires a long TOTT.
Others are hanging. I have walked the ice many times this winter.
I encountered an ice fisherman who drilled 14 inches ice. But I have also seen open water here and there. As always assume danger on river ice.

Bart,
All but 2 of the caches in the series have the snowflake attribute. The 2 to the far north have the anti-snowflake, but have been found with snow on the ground. I saw an update on 1 of the cache pages by the CO in January regarding the ice, but I am not sure what it is like now.

Sweet. Since spring won't be here until June, I'll need something to do in the next couple of weeks.
