Hi all,

I'm in town through Friday morning from Georgia for business and will be caching each evening. If any locals have anything interesting going on, either runs, or doing any cool caches, or just want to cache in general feel free to contact me through my GC profile.

My only real plans are to get over to Wisconsin at some point to pick up another state. I'll be staying out in the Maple Grove area, but can drive anywhere.

Oberyn (Josh)

Here's an event where you would meet many of the locals. GC3MXN3

If you're heading to Wisconsin, I might suggest Hudson. We've had some great caching experiences there. You can go for the numbers there with the quick and easy Hydrant series, or there are some great caches along the river, and on the pier out onto the river.

Good event to suggest! I'm actually in Atlanta fairly often for work (I'll be there next August 9-10), so we can swap recommendations if you come to the event. Very Happy French Park in Plymouth has a lot of neat caches (I'm guessing you're in that part of the metro based on what you've already logged), as does the Mississippi through Minneapolis and Theodore Wirth Park. There are a lot of signpost challenge caches in St. Paul where the challenges are pretty attainable and the caches are all 0.13 miles apart. (I know the guy who hid them pretty well.)

Hey Sparky! Point him at our caches! Very Happy If you do go towards french park:

All of the caches are now findable (Troutonthebrain did some maintenence) but Earthworms and Pachyderms might have 3 containers at gz!

If you come over to Wisconsin may I humbly suggest you do this cache: http://coord.info/GC234QY

It has 100 favorite points and it is as quick and easy and fun as you will ever find in a PNG.

That one's ok. But I thought this quick one was even better. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=dcbdc373-eb70-44ae-8f69-9093ed4d559f# Just a short drive if your staying in Maple Grove.

Yeah but that one is not in WI. The OP said they wanted to pick up another state. I say do 'em both!
