This is a quick multi while you're in the area. Very Happy Dr. Zefram Cochrane

This is one time GP won't actually need one since they're his caches!

Funny, I always remember to put a pencil in my caches for others who have C.R.A.P. like me! Laughing

I just have a couple of questions about Week Night Caching. It sounds like everyone meets at the listed cache at 7:30, but I guess my question was everything else that happens like dinner and pre-caching, etc.? If someone could post a schedule of what goes on that would be great and I'd love to try and make it tommorrow night.

"Pre-caching" is usually impromptu. Some start at 5 or anytime between 5 and 7:30. If you're interested, you can arrange to meet up with whoever else is planning on getting there early. Then we meet at the parking spot (which hasn't been posted yet) for the first cache at 7:30. After we find the selected caches, we all head out to eat. Hope that helps!

Sorry EPMN! It was the allure of having a bunch of people including the owner watch me stumble around FTF HOUNDS MN STYLE - Minnstars again.
@ arctic eagle - just watch this listing tomorrow and the original post will have the specifics as they firm up. Basically, meet at 7:30 at the first cache with drinks/eats to follow afterwards. "pre-caching" is a euphamism for grabbing a few caches before WNC begins and is ad hoc.

Thanks GP, that helps a lot. I could meet up if anyone wanted to before the actual event. Otherwise I look forward to seeing all the big names there tommorrow night.
Thanks again

I was just looking at the map of the area and since we are on a GeoPierce theme I thought it would be nice to get Skippy, Skippy Trifecta and a few others just to the West and a little South of Lake Ann Park. It looks like there would be parking available close to Leaf Me Alone GC1HH7J

Does 6:00 work?

Speedy and I did the peanut butter caches in July 2 summers ago and I have to tell you that was a LOT of hard work. Grass was taller than we were and we had to bushwhack all the way through to do all 3 caches, one being a multi. It felt like Gilligan's 3 hour tour. Speedy loves to tell stories from that night because when I fell down in that tall grass (when my foot was at its worst) I'd start laughing and he'd turn around and not be able to see where I was! That's when the bike flag would have really come in handy! Fortunately, the weather will be much cooler tomorrow than it was the night we went.

That sounds like fun. I have been meaning to get back out that way and find some more of GP's puzzles. I am also very interested in 'My Toot Toot' since I DNF'd it Embarassed a couple weeks ago while in the park finding another puzzle.

I better bring a new container just in case it is gone. Smile


I'll bring a pencil, just in case you forget to bring one Very Happy

good reminder!

I can testify to the craziness of the terrain on those. six foot feet tall weeds is hard to get through!

This sounds like fun, wish I could come...earlier tonight I was informed of an event I have to attend. Hopefully I'll be able to make it next week though! I've only found 4 new caches this month...I've officially dropped the ball and I'm feeling ashamed. I may go caching tomorrow to try and make up for this failure... Razz Have fun everyone, and hopefully I'll be seeing you all soon!
