Geocache Description:

The posted coordinates are not where the cache is. They will lead you only to a nearby intersection. You will need to solve a 2 stage puzzle to discover the true coordinates. The cache is located in rough and thorny terrain. Boots are a good idea. Patience also necessary. This should NOT be a walk in the park.

This cache is dedicated to my dear friend (SauliH) and his beautiful daughter (Princess Annika). In mid March of 2009 my wife, two boys and I visited glorious Coon Rapids, Minnesota from Sacramento, California, which is becoming a yearly family tradition for us :-) With me I brought my trusty GPS unit and my love for geocaching, which I had discovered only a few months before the trip. Hours after discussing the sport/hobby with my good friend, HE WAS HOOKED and all ready plotting where we would start our searching! We spent the next 6 days tracking through swamps at 3 am with flashlights in search of FTFs and staying up in the wee hours of the night solving evil puzzle caches. It was an amazing and adventurous time that I will never forget. In the time of the visit we logged 42 new finds as a team including 1 FTF. Princess Annika was along for many of them and , as we discovered quickly, she has a keen eye for spotting caches that us clumsy adults seem to overlook. I am so glad that I could bring this hobby to these two and that they will be sharing these kinds of experiences with each other for many years to come! This cache is dedicated to them. It is a mystery cache as you know and there are two parts to it. These two tasks that you must complete were modeled after two mystery caches in the area that SauliH and I successfully solved while I was there. The puzzles of this cache were created by me (frutcheyclan) and the hide location was scouted and selected by SauliH. Gotta love teamwork! Happy Hunting...
