Bring them with! One of my caches is a bridge cache and the other is two steps off the trail. I might bring one or both of my kids.



Thatís one of the reasons I chose this location. Very nice path to most hides. However the FTF is about 100ft or so into the woods. Not a lot of over growth. It should be an easy and quick find. 1 Ĺ difficulty and a 2 terrain. Very Happy

It does not look good for us as I have an Eagle Scout board of review. However, we will join you at Cowboy Jacks for dinner

Count me as a maybe. Can you get to http://coord.info/GCVE50 Burn Baby Burn from these caches? I have never been sure how to get to that one.


When I got that one I parked in the ice rink lot to the North and walked along the Western edge of the Public Safety Training Facility building. It was a super easy walk. It should be pretty quiet around there after 5:00. If not, just tell them that you know KredEP. She's tight with some pretty important people in law enforcement. Cool
Even with my connections, I would not do this cache this way when there are officials about. Seriously. My log from that cache that pretty much tells how to do it.
**This was a good time to come as nothing going on at the facility nearby. We parked in the lot across the street, stayed low and walked along the building on the easy mowed grass till within 20 feet of GZ. Worked slick! We wouldn't suggest doing that when the facility is being used! TFTC

Making modifications that will change it to a 2 Ĺ difficulty for the average cacher. Wink

Sounds like we just might try to make it then.

Is that a retail/office center where the parking is?

It's an office center. Follow your coords to the back lot.

I was hoping to make it but something has come up at work so I won't be able to.

I think I will be able to come. Too bad GeoPierce is unable to come, it's always fun to have a CO watching us hunt the new finds.

Thanks for hosting, Rusty and thanks for the 3 new caches, GP. It was a great night to visit with old friends and new ones.

Sorry I missed this. I was on the MnGCA site the other day, starting to look to see if there was a WNC this week. I got a work call Shocked & totally forgot about looking this up. Maybe next week?

Thanks Rusty for hosting. It was a beautiful night walking in the woods. That newest cache was an unexpected, yet amazing (not necessarily in a good way!) bushwack. I guess in the daylight there would be a much better way in! TonkaMN just dove in and I followed. Then the rest of the group did the same! Then TonkaMN hit a dead-end and suddenly I was leading. Anyone who has cached with me knows better than to follow me.

Thanks GP for placing all the caches, you were missed!

Great at refreshments after although a much smaller group. Made for nice visiting!

Nice to see everyone!
