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



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

As I planned this series of tribute caches in Carver Park Reserve I was only looking at cachers from the SW Metro area. But as I compiled my list I came across MinnesotaBrad’s name and was surprised to see that no one had ever placed a tribute cache for him. I don't know Brad real well, but we have cached together at a few events and I had seen him frequently at WNC. I knew from these times that he was a well liked and respected guy and we always had fun caching when Brad was along. I have since realized all the work that Brad has done for MNGCA and was glad to read that he was recently elected President. For purposes of this series of tribute caches the Southwest metro border had to grow far enough Northeast to include Brad's house in Brooklyn Center. (;-)

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!
