Speedysk1 & the Geotwins

Congratulations to Shawn on the overdue recognition of his achieving 1,000 finds!



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

I met Speedysk1 (Shawn) at my first WNC. Shawn hosted the event to hunt my first hides near Rice Marsh Lake. All I remember is he had a cool headlamp and he was the first to find the tricky stage #1 of my Bug Circle Multi. Several months later Shawn joined our team to MOGA in the spring of 2009 and that is when we really got to know each other. We had a blast on that trip. The first day we logged over 100 caches and Shawn was a big reason why, with his uncanny knack for finding Nanos. We gave him a special name for his Nano finding skills, but some things that happen on the road need to stay the road. (;-) Shawn rarely misses a WNC and he has logged almost 30 event caches. He served on the MNGCA board last year. As a result of all these social activities I’m sure Speedy is one of the best known cachers in the state. I have learned a lot from Speedy! He is someone who gives back and is always willing to help a Newbie learn how to Geocache.

This cache is part of a series of silver ammo cans placed in the western part of Carver Park Reserve near Victoria, MN. These caches honor the achievement of eight cachers, who have all found 1,000+ caches and have been important members of the caching community for sometime. This cache has been registered and approved by the Three Rivers Park District. Please follow Carver Park Reserve rules and observe park hours (5am to 10pm).

Take Victoria Dr. (County Rd. 11) from Hwy 5 or Hwy 7 and turn west on Grimm Rd. Park at either the Horse Trail or Springfield Group Camp parking lot. [LINK TO MAP] This cache is easily accessible from the trail system and can be found on foot or by bicycle. The cache is also near the horse trail, which is used for cross country skiing in the winter. This cache should be findable in all seasons. A nice complement of swag has been placed with the original contents of the container. Kids and dogs are always welcome. Please re-hide the cache well, so it doesn’t get muggled.

Most important have fun and enjoy Carver Park Reserve!
