I stumbled on a photo shoot at West Riverside GCHR7B for the Calendar for the Isanti Historical Society.
I am going to have to get one of the calendars for my mother.


What Esko leaves out was the content of the photo shoot. Shocked


The photographer got it all, including the potatoes. Now wife wants one of the calendars.

At the risk of sounding totally ignorant....

Are they doing another "History Buffs" Calendar?

The calendar is inspired by the movie "Calendar Girls".

I now know what is meant by the LAP of LUXURY. When I walked up to stage 1, I noticed the Lap of Luxury.... at least I bet that is where he thought he was as she lay there with her eyes closed and a smile on her face. They didn't even notice me walk up look turn around and walk away Shocked

I could describe the scene I ran into last summer geocaching on the Mississippi River Walk in downtown Minneapolis, happening in plain site. But I'd rather not be booted from this website for lewd and graphic language. Let's just say, it resembles JJJeffr's post but with the implication that it was MUCH MORE GRAPHIC.

My wife and I were caching near Grand Rapids last week and when we got close to GZ of a cache up there. She thought she spotted the cache in an ice cream container. I was closer to the ice cream bucket and stated that, "Nope that's not the cache because a plant is growing out of it. It's cannabis!!!" We found another 7 buckets as well. There could quite a few more on this southern facing hillside,

We didn't find the cache (which is one of her brother's caches - he is an evil hider).

My question to the members, "Would you mark the location and notify the sheriff? or would you just let it go?"

Report it and tell the cache owner to archive it. Marijuana growers are none too fond of others traipsing all over their "territory".

The plants won't mature until late August at the earliest but they may be back to check on them soon.

I thought that you were talking about a cache at a park in Elk River called Happy Birthday Dad, There was the same deal. I did mark the coords and called the police. They went out a pulled them.

I encountered this on Saturday near a cache.

Hopefully it wasn't a cacher!

In Alabama, at a wayside rest, as I headed into the trees on a trail, I first encountered 3 or 4 syringes, laying there uncapped. After shaking off the "Ewwww" shivers, I then came upon 4 prophylactics (trying to use good words here), and realized I was probably sitting in a rendezvous spot. I split quickly.

In my hometown, I found a dead cow carcass. It looked kind of cool, so I placed a cache near there and named it "One Dead Cow". Many people report seeing the dead cow on their hunt.

At a famous King Boreas hide, I found 3 dead animals (looked like dogs???) leashed to a tree in the woods. Sadly, I can only imagine that some moron abandoned them while fishing at that location.

On a night time cache hunt, I parked at the parking area of a public park, and headed in to find the cache. WHile there I could hear the residents across the street asking each other, "What do you think he's doing over there?", and "I don't recognize the car, do you?" On this one, I quickly found the cache and left the scene. After all, it was 1:45 AM and I had to get home after a long evening of work.

That's it for now...

DonB!

After looking online at different skulls, I'm pretty sure that this was a wolf skull. About 15' away from the cache.

I agree this looks canine. But it almost looks like it could be domestic dog.. blunt canine teeth and very wide nose ridge. Still a nice find.

Many of you know my story about Enfield Rest Area, and what I found can not be written about on this forum. Let's just say that I was so grossed out by the artifacts I found on the snowy ground, that I didn't return to find the actual cache until last week (over a year and a half later). I have finally exercised that demon and have vowed never to use that rest area ever again!

Sorry for the "leave you hanging" moment, but it's really not forum material. Just writing about it makes me gag a little!

NOW I need the rest of the story. I have not heard it yet.
