I get the opportunity to work in the Anoka/Coon Rapids area the week of June 11th and possibly the following week. Looking for caches to do, bike trails, and other advice on what to do.
I've done the sword in the stone already and some of the south suburbs, but nothing above 694.
I do have an Ax-Man stop planned.

Do you like puzzles? A lot of the "Puzzle Academy Freshman Year" puzzles seem to be up in the NW suburbs . . . that might be a worthy challenge to solve over the next couple of weeks and then find them and the final while you are in town.

I have a love hate relationship with puzzles, I've taken a look at several of the puzzles up that way and just have to take time to start figuring them out. I was excited to see that I can fill in some old placed by month/year dates within a few miles of the motel.

Plenty of bike path stuff around that area. Check out GC32JFV, and then scroll over the maps and more to the east of that one.

Looking around and seeing more and more that I will hope to get weather and time permitting. I'm going to see if I can sneak the bike along and hit the bike paths as those aren't far from the motel. Also, I see alot of older caches that will help me out really really close.

Should be enough to do that I won't sit in the hotel room all week!! Now to work on a few puzzles!

Puzzle Academy really is good if you haven't done it. Hints!! and I learned a lot about different puzzle types even though I'm not too hot at puzzling and I never get around to actually finding them. Might have hints for some on your hit list. This is Freshman Year

There's a sophomore year too.

Have fun!!

I may be up for joining up with other cachers.

Looking at the Freshman Puzzle requirements I have several of them done already, interesting!

I may just do that, I know I'm planning on doing some of the bike paths if possible and some p/g's. My main focus will be counties I need and some date/year caches so I'm going to be bouncing around, but since I have the week to cache and I'm not one to sit in a motel room staring at the computer and tv I know I'll be out caching and exploring.

If you are in the metro on 6/16, there is a poker run happening.
