Your nominations for November 2012 Cache of the Month are:

Regular Cache Icon GC39CRK: The Caching Gods Have Spoken by bflentje
Nominated By: a-body
This is a traditional cache with a couple mile walk through the beautiful Miesville Ravine Park which is NE of Cannon Falls. The view from GZ is phenomenal any time of year, but right now (early October) would be a step above with the fall colors. Many other caches along the trail to this one.


Multi Cache Icon GC3ABGG: Judgement Day by TheCachin8tor
Nominated By: LabguyMN
It's a 9 stage multi that includes puzzles, an appreciable hike, knowledge of decryption, planning, teamwork and is just plain fun. The Cachin8tor has outdone himself with the planning, ingenuity and a considerable investment for us to enjoy an epic cache. Most of all this cache managed to keep two 12 year old boys interested for over 3 hours- even guessing what the next stage might be. For me this cache is what I thought geocaching would be about when I first heard about it years ago. A day in the woods spent with family and/or friends searching for treasure. This cache is all that and more.

-Additionally-
A second nomination this month was also received for Multi Cache Icon GC3ABGG: Judgement Day
Nominated By: yellowdogs
This 9 stage multi cache is very well done from start to finish. Each stage is something very different and tests skills on many levels. There is a story that goes along with each stage that makes it very fun. This is the coolest cache that I have encountered to date!

If you have any words/reviews for any of the caches up for voting, please share then here by posting a reply...

Voting will be open till the end of the month*. Good luck to all the nominees and keep those great caches coming!

*Note: Due to how the polling works in phpBB the poll may be open for some time past 11:59:59 pm on the last day of the month, or may end sometime during the last day of the month. While we will do what we can to make sure this poll stays open through the month, there is no reason to wait till the last minute. You get one vote and it counts the same no matter when you make it. When a poll is open it is set to be open for a certain number of days, so if for some reason the poll can't be open right at 11:59:59 (say a production issue at work, busy with non-caching activities, feel asleep, etc) then there may be some 'bonus' voting time.

See the video teaser for Judgement day below!

http://youtu.be/UiZMFGkNtNA

Judgement Day was the culmination of over a years worth of planning, tinkering, and scheming. It is difficult enough to keep you busy for few hours of caching, but simple enough to still be a lot of fun as long as you come prepared. It incorporates the use of teamwork, ciphers, TOTTS, and navigational skills. It also has some things that you probably have NEVER seen before that will suprise you. It is very high-tech for a geocache. And the story on the cache description follows you with every stage to give you a new depth to the experience!

One of the finders sent me an email personally thanking me for bringing him and his son together for an entire day of fun with this cache. In his words, "you had two kids and a 40-year old adolescent drooling over the cache page." This coming from someone who claims that him and his son don't usually share activities together, but this time it was much different. I even managed to recruit a new geocacher because his son's friend tagged along and instantly fell in love with the hunt.

I encourage anyone who is looking for a nice fun mini-adventure to come out and try your hand at conquering CACHENET and find out why this cache is a favorite among all the finders to date.

In fairness, Judgment Day may take people several trips. There could be a bunch of people who have not yet completed it.
