I took my wife and son out today to try and discover our first cache together and tried a couple out but DNF any. I just want to get together with someone to make sure I am doing this right. I am in South St Paul and there are three very close to my house(knowschad challenge, knowschad sequal, and corner of first and third) to show me the ropes on. We would greatly appreciate it. Thanks ahead of time.

ANYTHING referencing Knowschad, it title or as the hider, is bound to be on the more difficult side. Be wary of the ratings as you get going.

Come out to a WeekNIGHT or a FridayNIGHT event if there is one near your home or work. There are always cachers happy to help out a newbie, and we usually don't start until 7 or 7:30. There is also a Event Cache Icon Breakfast Buddies in Minneapolis this upcoming Saturday. Also chock full of cachers willing to give aid and guidance.

Went in to work for a couple of hours and left after the Vikings game was over and went and found the three caches you tried to find. They are all there. Good hides and the coordinates are spot on. The cache called Corner of First and Third will probably be the easiest to find. Use the clue and you should find it.

Thanks neighbor. I was kind of proud that my first was one of yours, from the looks of it, yours are a little more challenging. We probably see each other all the time and don't even know it.

I don't know... I've never seen anyone walking around that looks as skinny as you do in your avatar. Have you seen a dog around town that is wearing glasses?
