Now accepting nominations for May CotM. From now (4/1/2010 - no joke!) to 4/30/2010).

After being cooped up for the winter people are out finding more caches and enjoying the weather! If you find a hide that that is exceptionally well done why not nominate it for CotM!

Questions, you can read the guidelines here but really, if you find a cache you like nominate it's not that hard. Wink

We'd like to nominate a Sharknosebunnies puzzle cache.

It Ends with a Little Girl - GC2316P

From the title to the find, this is a most creative puzzle with several dimensions that utilize the left side, right side, front and back of the brain. And just like geocaching, this one takes you to places you probably didn't know existed on the internet. Once solved the cache itself is none too shabby!

I would like to nominate Wally's World. The CO put a lot of work into the container, and the location is great. I found this cache last night, and enjoyed just sitting at GZ, listening to the sounds of nature that surrounded me. The babbling brook and many singing birds made it a peaceful oasis in the middle of the metro.

I would like to nominate GC25004 Hey Soul Sister by Trichick, in Eden Prairie. I love this because the hider took the time to seek out a cool, unexplored spot and put the cache in the best place in the park. Good views, good adventure and terrain, lots of nature, the anti-skirt-lifter if you will. Not over the top but definitely one of my favorites I have done lately. Good old-school caching. : )

I am nominating this cache for Cache Of The Month.

GC26NWB - Gauntlet 2010 - Senses Census

If any of you enjoyed Seldon's Gaunlet multicache from 2008, you had better check this one out.. This adventure was worth the effort. I can't say much without ruining the fun for you but one thing I will say is that this one does NOT require you to drive around 50 miles like the last one.

If there is to be a Minnesota Cache-Of-The-Year, this is it.

In true STF form I second:

GC26NWB - Gauntlet 2010 - Senses Census

IMHO this is a MUST LOG cache for anyone who is physically able. Do yourself the favor and make the drive, it is worth it!
