I just found out that Tactical Squirrel will be moving out of Burnett county as he is changing jobs and moving to the southwestern part of the state. He has 19 caches in the area. He asked me if I was willing to adopting his caches. I am willing to adopt some of these (even though I have still only found 8 of his 19 caches. However, if someone else in the area is interested in adopting any of these caches (particularly those in the eastern part of the county), let me know.

When you find out which ones are available for adoption.. you can always submit them on the "Cache Rescue" {{Six down from the top on your left side of the screen!!}} portion of this website and make a note in the forums that they were placed on the Rescue list!

Thanks for the suggestion. I will probably adopt most of them but I was hoping that there was someone else in the area who might take a few.

Unfortunately, except for some Minnesota natives who have lake cabins, I am not aware of any other cachers in this county. Sad

I am planning on trying to find as many of these that I can to begin the adoption process.

You might try contacting Beadelake Crew or Mushers Inc.

I wish that I could adopt some, but they are a bit out of my comfy range.

I looked at the list of caches, and there are some pretty good ones in there. I have found 12 of TS's active 19 caches. I am pretty sure Swiss Pines is gone though, so it will need to be replaced or disabled.

As far as the couple of ones in River Falls, those are probably out of your range too. However, there are quite a few active cachers down there, that could probably take those.

When Tactical Squirrel finally decides which caches he is going to adopt out, he can use the automated system at geocaching.com.

Simply go to this link: http://www.geocaching.com/adopt

The people who he specifies as the new owners will then have to go to that link to complete the process.

Thanks for the suggestions. I was able to find four more of his caches on Saturday (and even had some spare caches ready so I've already replaced two of his neglected caches).

I wasn't able to find Swiss Pines either. However, the concept is different enough for the county that I will probably just replace the cache.

I also did realize that there are 3 caches in River Falls which will need to be adopted by someone else (although Tactical Squirrel may keep those as he is moving to Trempaleau County and I believe he has relatives in this area).

Tactical Squirrel just completed the work on his end. I have now adopted all of his Burnett County geocaches and changed most of the containers as the old coffee can styled containers were beginning to leak. I found all the caches that I had not found including replacing a deactivated cache GCM87P which will be able to activated again.

There are some beautiful spots up here. All you downstaters are welcome to come up here and do some caching. Very Happy
