Geocache Description:

10 years of geocaching

Garrison Keillor reminisces:


A boy in Brooklyn Park was always on his bike, going off to adventure. We'd bike down to Earle Brown's farm, a thousand-acre ranch that lay along Highway 100, white face cattle grazing on a treeless plain, with Mr. Brown's big house, barns, stables, and riding arena in the distance. Earle Brown had been sheriff in Hennepin County and apparently he had the same cowboy fantasies that we had; his farm looked for all the world like a piece of Texas. We'd bike up 77th to a deserted grass airstrip, Victory Memorial Field, left over from World War I, where rusting planes sat in a big silent hangar. We'd climb into the cockpits and I'd imagined soaring and roaring through the cloudbanks over the Rhine blasting Nazi Messerschmidts out of the sky.

What was significant about the airstrip, and when was it constructed?

PLEASE NOTE THE GC.COM RULE THAT THE PHYSICAL SITE OF A VIRTUAL CACHE MUST BE VISITED IN ORDER TO LOG THE FIND. I had to delete logs from people who almost certainly did not visit the physical site. I will continue to check each log to verify that the finder appears to have visited the physical site, and if it is highly likely that you did not, your log will be deleted, even if you answer the question correctly. In order to have a fair playing field, everybody in the game needs to follow the same rules.
