I've heard people here in town mention that they saw that article. I must admit I didn't realize it was only until Dec. 31st. I've only found one so far and I live right in Aitkin! Bad planning on my part.

I'm wondering if anyone has follow up feedback on the Aitkin County challenge cache series. Dec 31st closed out the 4th challenge series. They intend to introduce their 5th series this year on the same 24 plots of land they've used in the past. Obviously, the reason they wanted caches registered in those 24 locations was so they could hold spots available for their annual series. The cacher in charge of executing the series based it on Minnesota's series as his family had completed it in 2008 and really enjoyed it. Are there any suggestions or feedback that I can pass on to him from your standpoint?

I personally would appreciate it if the caches were kept alive for two years before being republished. Aitkin County is large. I like collecting the wooden nickels, but have never been able to get more than 80% or so of them in any given year. That said, I know there are many cachers who do find all the ACLD caches in a year. I would imagine they like having them updated annually.

Actually, it's a lot of work because it's one guy doing it pretty much on his own. I agree about the 2 years.
