Two separately hosted geocaching events are being combined for supreme Summer Solstice fun!!!

The first event at the Isinours unit of the Richard J. Dorer Forest northeast of Preston, MN, hosted by Accordiongal and DOC will be Saturday, June 21, but you can feel free to camp in the area Friday night, June 20.

Here is a link to their event, which will feature a number of permanent (which means they can all be logged for smilies!) geocaches. As they note, a hostel/resort also is close by. Plus, there is remote camping available on the hilltop (only a 15-minute hike or so)
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=e7042795-d9d5-4372-b855-7e0047c57b00

The second event is hosted by yours truly on Sunday, June 22. Canoeing cachers will meet for coffee first. (The location listed on the event page may well change to a coffee shop with outside seating in downtown Lanesboro, as opposed to the take-out landing.) The link gives more info, including a canoe/kayak outfitter. You will go after my 4/5 rated Root of All Evil paddling geocache series. There are four total caches. You need to log the first three to get the necessary info for the final, which is TRULY EVIL!!! MOOOOOOOOOhahhahaha! (plus at least a couple other caches on the way and more may be placed. Am sorta planning a spring run on the caches Saturday, June 7 if interested)
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=b4358150-ff6a-4e72-b437-625e62e55537

Hope to see y'all there! If you're hardy paddlers with Monday off, there's a nice, primitive DNR canoe campsite after the final find - I mean **IF** you emerge victorious from the quest!!! Twisted Evil Razz Laughing

We're test-driving Doc.'s first Beer, Bonfire and BS attempts in order to smooth out the wrinkles before bringing it to WI. One can have far more illegal fun across the border, ya know! Sometimes reciprocity can be a good thing! Twisted Evil Shocked Twisted Evil

Oh, yeah! If you've got your own equipment, bring it! Bring your bike, too! We've got caches and Earthcaches placed out on the Root River Trail, as well as a whole bunch more of unpublished new caches placed all over Isinours Forest Unit. No mosquitoes down in this neck of the woods, either. Snakes eat em.

Wow! About 30 new caches placed out there, just waiting for the Saturday morning release. Trekkin' and birdin' were so kind to come and give us a hand with placing caches, so ya know there's going to be something fun for everyone. Earthcaches, letterbox, puzzle, traditionals, hiking, biking, bonfire, beer, BS and some grilled salmon. Whew! Life don't get much better!

Huh? When? And how did I miss this thread???

So Doc, REALLY?? Cuz, I was kinda thinking of maybe holding a Geocache-Birthday Bash around maybe August 23.

Since I'll be turning a young 38, I figured 38 permanent caches were in order. And so far I have about 20-25 waiting in the wings which include a fitting tribute to the Z-man.

Greetings,

Isinours land manager has informed me that the hand water pump is in the repair shop. This means there is no water available at Isinours. Those in attendance will have to bring your own drinking and washing water.

I need to talk this over with the wife. Make sure there are no other plans I don't know about. I'd say right now it is 50/50 for go. Stay tuned for details.(will post a different thread so we don't teal this one anymore.)
