anyone aware of a cache that requires (or would be best with) an offroad vehicle?

I'd like to find one in the area that I could get to offroad by jeep.


im guessing not, but thought it was worth asking in case someone has come across one. Cool

Iíve got a few I needed a Jeep to place, so a Jeep would be good to retrieve as well but they are all in the North Country. Cougar Tracks and Fox Tracks might have you heading to the carwash after signing the log. Wink

There are a bunch over near Black River Falls, Wisconsin that are jeep friendly. I think those would suit your needs.

Try Vermont 1, Vermont's oldest active cache. Offroading up a 45 degree angle. Sweet.

On the other hand, maybe not a good idea after Irene..

To people with Jeeps, those are "IN THE AREA" Wink

I liked the down hill slide after the "7 Cities" cache up by Bovey. Also, watch out for the sand traps KB tries to lead you into up north of Hinckley.

This morning I found The Bunker Grade "North End" and a couple of other nearby caches.

The terrain is flat, but the huge holes combined with driving to it in the rain gave me the chance to get the truck muddy. Fun.

(Understand it may not be in your specific area, but since topic is located in the General section, I am going with Minnesota in general.)

This one wouldn't require a jeep but if you want to drive in a river it would Smile. The cache is one of the toughest bushwhacks I've ever done. It's really fun though. The end is the funnest part not just 'cause of the find but for other reasons too... I'll let you find that out though Smile.

The cache is: Balance Beam

That's my suggestion. I'm not sure if a jeep would work though...

OH! You're from rochester... I didn't know that. In the austin area Over the River and Through the Woods would work for the first stage it doesn't exactly NEED a jeep though. Rocky Road is on a gravel road. In the winter Foundation Of Machinery would actually NEED a jeep.

Those are a few I can think of in the Austin that might be a LITTLE off road and in the winter they'd be probably be pretty tricky terrain.

It's in the area for me. YOUR caching circle is just way too darn small. Wink
