Thanks for hosting. I was really hoping to go. But the distance, along with the snow and cold....I turned wimpy. Don't give up on us!

We had a nice, but small turnout.

I learned a little about hosting WNC.

Lesson 1: Select a specific and limited number of caches
Lesson 2: Pick a circular route so you can finish up near where you started
Lesson 3: Don't forget your flashlight in the car

Everyone who came to my WNC got a new WestSideDaddy pathtag (don't plan on that happening next time Laughing )

Thanks for hosting, WestSideDaddy. It turned out to be a great night for caching, despite the crappy start for the day. Next time you'll have to host out West since it appears that nobody likes caching on the North side. Confused But then maybe the weather had something to do with the small turnout. It was quality, not quantity. Anyway, I had a great time and look forward to seeing you again on the trail.

Thanks for hosting, WestSideDaddy. A small group but a fun one. And thanks for the precaching TonkaMN, I know my short legs slowed us down but we did good.

I wish I could've made this one as there aren't many WNC events in our neck of the woods. Thanks for hosting it, WestSideDaddy!

The roads were very dry by then. The traffic was really light, too. It was nothing like it was in the morning. I was most surprised that we were able to find everything we looked for. The only DNF was one that we couldn't get to due to six inches of slush and leaking boots.

There are still a lot of caches in this area (Crystal/Brooklyn Center/Robbinsdale) so I hope to setup another WNC at some point near here. Maybe we can all swim out to Boo Radley in July Cool
