It was the summer of 2012. Gas prices were rising. The State Parks had just released a challenge. And one determined cacher was planning a road trip. Well, it's 2015 and not much has changed - but this time we know the trip CAN BE DONE!

Find some friends and plan your route for The Magical Mystery Tour - 2015! There are 8 stops and one final over 24 hours - DO NOT attempt this alone. If you would like to review the historic first journey you can start at: The Beginning - Fuel for the Soul with Maple Syrup? and find the links to the remaining events on that page.

This year will include several bonuses - including swag, prizes, and contests along the route! The memories you make along the way are your responsibility (as are any traffic tickets).

I was part of that crazy group of 11 or was that twelve? Cool It was quite the adventure and experience I won't forget. A little more than 24hrs and over 1000 miles traveled. We traveled to every corner of this state. Oh, and the 8 events.

Will this one be similar in miles and destinations ?

Yes, it will be similar. The locations aren't final yet, but we are working on the same range of miles. (And some extra surprises!)

If you're drinking. Without drinking that's a long haul for just a handful of caches.

Refreshing my stock in a couple of weeks. Did you think I was going to MOGA to actually geocache? You can get Yuengling in TN. LOL.

No, it wasn't about the caches. It was about the people, the events, and the fun memories made. I so needed it then and really look forward to this one as well!

It is one of my fondest geocaching memories. So many laughs. I met cachers whose names I'd seen in logs and/or whose caches I'd found. No drinking along the way! Can't wait to do it again!

Oops, forgot. Hinckley event hosted by MNpeguy & MNHoffer from 2:30-4:30 am had coffee in the parking lot for attendees. Nice!

We were in the parking lot because the restaurant (tobies) would NOT let event in. They are open 24rs.
