Congratulations to Rick on achieving 5,000+ finds!

(Please include reminiscences of caching adventures with Rick,
or mention your favorite RR hide in your log entry.)

If you live in the western metro area and have cached for any length of time
you know who rickrich is. He’s an old school cacher and a simple guy who
plays by the rules. Rick has been caching mostly around the twin cities
metro area since 2002. Rick is one of the original FTF hounds and has
over 700 FTF’s to his name. He’s still the guy to beat in the west
metro and his ability to brute force a find is legendary. Those of us who know Rick
probably first ran into him on an FTF run often wearing his signature yellow jacket
and red hat. Most people know who rickrich is because of his over 300 hides
(also a recent milestone). Richrich has his share of puzzles
and difficult hides, but he takes pride in placing caches that are findable.
Because his caches are plentiful and accessible most newbies in the
west metro learn how to hide caches by the example he sets.

Thanks for all the great hides Rick and way to go on getting to 5,000 finds and beyond!!

Seek regular sized cache. Beware of barbed wire in the area. Somehow I did not notice it when I placed the cache.

FTF honors go to rickrich and the WNC!

This cache has been approved by the Eden Prairie Parks Dept.

p.s. Thanks to Minnstars for his help in setting up the cache page before I knew how to add all the bells and whistles!
