How about some island caches on Twin Lakes in Crystal.

GC1D281 National Mascots - Woodsy the Owl
GC1D01K Boo Radley
GC1J8JQ Garbage Can in the Woods
GC3DA1T Chief's Island

If you want GC1HCKR MnGCA Board Game: minnesotabrad, you can get it pre-caching.

Parking at: N 45 03.522 W 093 20.250

Since I don't know this lake at all, I'd appreciate info from those who do on where to park, thoughts on the safety of the ice, and where to eat - preferably nearby to the south and/or west.

No one gave advice on eats, so let's try:
Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar‎
5590 West Broadway Avenue
Crystal, MN 55428

Too bad I have all of those...and I own the last one.

The ice should still be safe enough. Chief's Island was just logged today.

I don't usually like to post WNC for such old caches, because I know many people already have them. Selfishly I wanted company. Wink I'll gladly withdraw if someone comes up with another WNC idea.

I came in from http://coord.info/GC1HCKR with Topgear on 3-17-2009. As I recall, it was one of the last days of walkable ice and we had to jump over open water to get on the ice that year. This year, you should be fine.

I'd be happy to join a WNC here, but am biased because I too have not grabbed these before.

Hoping to make it, weather permitting. We are all meeting at the link that Grey Wolf posted?

I am in but I might be a few minutes late. It is a long drive from south of the river. Are we meeting at Major and 58th or the link to the Minnesota Brad cache?

We're parking along Major which is also good parking for the Minnesota Brad cache.

Wow, a great evening out and a beautiful night including the stars, on the lake. Thanks everyone for coming out; it was a nice group. Thanks for letting me call an audible and change the restaurant to Sunshine Factory. We will have to go there again sometime. The happy hour food and drink was great.
