Geocache Description:


This is a nice walk through the woods at the Robert E. Ney Memorial Park Reserve, in memory of Rouster!



Cache Details

When I first started caching, I like many others had no clue as to what I was doing. Two veteran cachers, Rouster and RJ, reached out to me and offered encouragement, answered endless questions via e-mail, and helped me past my many mistakes and missteps. Without their effort, I doubt I would have continued caching at all, and it was with great sadness that I learned of Rouster's passing. I thought it'd be a fitting tribute and a good way to honor his memory by placing this cache in a spot I think he would have liked, in a park I know he enjoyed.

This cache was hidden last year as a multi, but I wasn't happy with it's winter accessibility. On the advice of our local approver, I'm posting it as a new traditional rather than changing the type of the original cache. (Because it's at the same spot as the original, all previous finders are free to re-post their finds immediately if they want to.) I think Rouster would have enjoyed this spot, and I hope you do too!



Location, Parking, and Access

This cache is located in the 735-acre Robert E. Ney Memorial Park Reserve, just north of Rouster's hometown. The park is home to the Wright County Parks Environmental Education Center, and features 3.5 miles of ski/hike trails, a chapel, horse trails, a picnic area, and a public boat launch.

Ample free and legal parking is available at park entrance and trailhead, at N 45° 15.419 W 093° 59.871. From there, it's just over a half-mile hike up and down the well-maintained trails directly to the cache location.

You are looking for a standard-sized Lock & Lock container, hidden in the usual sort of spot. Be sure to continue up the trail to the bench at the top of the hill - this is the location of the original first stage, and is a good place to sit for a spell before continuing your hike. The cache starts out with assorted camping supplies, and trinkets hand-selected from the 'Noles kidlet's personal collection...enjoy your walk, and as always - thanks, have fun, and happy hunting!
