GC1NX63: "Just Ducky" in Long Lake Park by TopGear
nominated by Jam3s

I would like to nominate "Just Ducky" in Long Lake Park as when I was going through the caches I hadn't seen a cache like the outside container. The real shock was when I opened up the outside container to see the interior container that I really liked and the reason for the nomination. I think that the sign on the interior container was icing on the cake. This cache was definitely a shock. If you haven't checked it out at the KB 2000th hide, you should head out there as soon as possible.

N02A9F: Walter Library Virtual by Joukkusisu
nominated by emmanogoldfish

It's a new virtual (hidden on 26 Jan 2009), worthy of nomination on that alone.

I'd like to nominate "Headless Horseman" which is a gruesome traveling cache. The photo is from Halloween Hoopla -- Land of The Lost

http://img.geocaching.com/cache/log/203ef616-95d9-49af-b417-08f927cb1eb0.jpg

It was also at the First Minnesota Cache Bash -- Five Years Later

I didn't actually ever *find* it, but I'm the caretaker. Oops, I guess that makes it "my" cache? Oh yeah, it's a temp at Events. And those two Events have been archived.

Rolling Eyes I guess that's three strikes against it. I withdraw the nomination.

I honestly mean no disrespect against Cache of the Month.

GC1RMJZ Elmer Bunyan by The Ruderat Crew. Nominated by KRedEP

For those of us in the SW Metro, we are spoiled. The quality of the caches is extremely high – this cache continues that trend. This is the first Wherigo cache in Minnesota. That fact alone deserves a nomination. But what makes this cache special is the amount of effort that was put into this cache to create a fun, special and enjoyable experience. At the park you are taken on an adventure complete with choices to make, trails to follow, and corny jokes to add to the excitement. Reading the logs you know that those who completed this cache thought it was a special experience. People who have completed Wherigo’s in other states have remarked how truly special our first one is. The bar has been set high here in Minnesota. A whereigo cache requires a Colorado or Oregon. There are plenty of them out there – if you don’t have one, try to borrow.

Not even going to be a contest...the first Wherigo in Minnesota...seeing the description and logs...it has my vote...

I was thinking that the cache located at the Dakota County Sheriff's office would make a great COM for this month. It's of a high quality, has lots of intrigue and is extremely difficult to find. Makes for a great caching experience.
