If anyone is working on Jasmer, and still needs to get Power Island in Michigan for it... a group of us booked a charter on Monday morning, June 22. We can take 2-3 more. pm me if interested!

Should prove to be a fun trip for you. The island is bigger than it looks on the map. About an hour and 15 to hike completely around it.

Our trip around the mid-west is going to include 7 old caches we need for Jasmer... there is another one within an hour of Power Island which is the 2nd oldest cache in MI, from August of 2000 if you need that month.

You do not want to miss the other cache you're mentioning.. there's only three remaining of that month/year combo left in the entire US, this one, one in Utah, and another in Georgia which may have recently been archived.

I was hoping to get the one in Atlanta this year so I had to check. Lake Lanier is still active. There is also Match Stash if you ever make it over to Sweden. I have heard that Potters Pond can be difficult to get to due to elevation and snow cover.

I do need that other cache also, I am guessing that you will be going over the top of Michigan since you are from the Duluth area?

Yes, that is the plan... after we hit those two, then we will head down to Grand Rapids, MI... to Indiana for it's first cache... then over to the Chicago area for Beverly and Burlington. Then finish off at the Dells, since it's the only way I can get my 13 yo son to go along for the ride, Laughing . Well, that and an Ipod.

Thought about doing this one as a little detour after Chicago, but I will not do it in mixed company : http://coord.info/GC57FMW

Cool idea! Don't think I'll do an event with it when we go... tight timeline...
