Hello MN Geocachers!
I am so happy that I found this site.
I have been geocaching with my kids for about 4 years now and we just love it. We have always done it solo, and have never met another avid geocacher to go out with. I am hoping to branch out and make some friends to go caching with and go to events with!

Best way to make friends is to go to events! The big official MNGCA get togethers are often quite kid friendly. Where are you guys? (metro? burbs? outstate?)

Welcome! I remember that day when I found this site as well about 3 years ago or so!

As others have said, events are the best way to find other cachers to go with. I'm generally a loner myself, and I think I had found almost 700 caches before I met another cacher "on the trail ". Looks like you have a ways to go.

Which southern suburb? There's a small group of us in Rosemount and we're always looking for group caching fun.

Why? Are you planning a weeknight caching event?
