Do Surfer Joe a favor and after placing a cache, be sure that they don't fit into any of the following areas:

http://www.lazylightning.org/boundaries/AMA.kmz (3.0MB)
http://www.lazylightning.org/boundaries/NWR.kmz (304k)
http://www.lazylightning.org/boundaries/RegionalTrails.kmz (197k) [Dakota Rail Line in Carver County only]
http://www.lazylightning.org/boundaries/SNA.kmz (107k)
http://www.lazylightning.org/boundaries/WPA.kmz (1.4MB)
http://maps.dnr.state.mn.us/compass/wma/kml/mndnr_wmas.kmz

Please be sure to have prior approval for caches in these areas:

http://www.lazylightning.org/boundaries/ramsey.kmz (31k)
http://www.lazylightning.org/boundaries/StateParks.kmz (290k)
http://www.lazylightning.org/boundaries/SuperiorNationalForest.kmz (130k)

Please be sure to follow the guidelines for these areas:

http://www.lazylightning.org/boundaries/StateForests.kmz (500k)

My site is hosted on my residential DSL connection so be nice Wink

We could probably move these to the MnGCA website and include links on the cache guidelines page if you want.

How about a tutorial on how to use the above files for those that don't understand what to do with them?

Open them in Google Earth. Plot a cache. If it's inside a boundary line you either need to register it or you need to remove it depending on the area.

I have updated the list to include Regional Trails. If you want to overlay the Counties map over it, download http://www.lazylightning.org/boundaries/mncounties-sorted.kmz as well.

Surfer Joe asked me to provide the boundaries for the Superior National Forest so I have added them here as well. If you need the Chippewa for some reason, I have that data as well.

When you open the "Features" folder, the Highway 96 points are off the coast of Africa.
