Along the paved Mississippi River levee bike trail in South St Paul.
Before we begin, I want to state loud and clear... the cache is NOT (repeat, NOT!) on the railroad side of the trail. Both stages are on the river side of the trail and whatever your GPS may read, if it points toward the tracks, it is wrong.
OK, let's go for a Rodney Hunt today!
Find Rodney and you will find two sets of numbers that could be interpreted as partial coordinates in the form of:
N 44° XX.XXX
W 093° 0Y.YYY
If you found the right numbers and entered them in properly, they should direct you about 3 1/4 miles west of Rodney. HOWEVER... that is NOT where the cache is!
Instead, do a little simple arithmetic.
XX.XXX + 318 = the North coordinates
6231 - Y.YYY = the West coordinates.
The final is very close to Rodney and should take very little hunting. But bring a pen or pencil. If you are very far-sighted, you may also want to bring your reading glasses or a magnifying glass. No... the final isn't that small!
