I am still living in the cities, I work 4 days a week in St. Cloud and Telecommute 1..after 30 days of employment I get to telecommute 2 days and after 90 days I get to telecommute 3 days. I would like to move closer, but probably still try to stay in the maple grove/rogers area. Waiting for house values to go back up a bit, can't afford to sell right now.

I predict your average finds per day is going to up for awhile. Smile

I'm not so sure...I'll be spending so much time on the road each day (3 hours) that I think it will cut into my caching time...also, I'm less likely to drive outta my way with the amount of gas I'll be using.

Like it, my wife has Girl Scouts on Thursday, but I think my Mom might be able to watch the kids, so I might be a go. I think that regardless of my ability to attend, that is the best night to do this.

Where would people like to go eat? I posted a few in my initial message..lots of places around to get food and drink.


Jimmy's Pour House in Sauk Rapids is pretty close to all of the caches and a good eat as well.

Where is a good spot to park and meet? Is that a parking lot at the end of 10th street?

Having never been to a weeknight caching get together, I have a few questions about the evening.

Do you get together somewhere and then all ride together? Or do you meet at a caching location and then follow each other around? Obviously, you get together afterward somewhere.

Give a clue as to what the night might look like.

I thought we would meet at the parking lot at the park as we go to the first cache. It is quite large parking lot.

Usually the area picked has 3-5 caches within walking distance, everyone meets at the coordinates and stumbles along in the dark from cache to cache. (All the while blinding each other with various flashlights and headlamps.) It's a good time! Then everyone goes back to the cars, picks a refreshment spot and compares caching stories.

We can do it however we want, but the way the WNC works in the cities, is that we all meet at a parking location near the first cache (parking lot) and then head out as a group from there. Then if we need to drive to another location, we do that..then we all make our way to the restaurant and eat.

Are my coords the parking lot for the park? I guess that was what I was trying to find out...where the best place to park is. My coords are at the end of 10th street.

Yes one of the parking lots. Great place to start is from there.

Anybody else planning on trying a SC TNC?

I'll be at the Capitol in St. Paul all day, otherwise I normally would be up for some pre-caching.

TNC in SC won't work for us this week. I'm teaching in Eagan this week and not getting home to Blaine until after 6pm.

We sure are interested in other weeks.
