a timeline pertaining to this visit.
nov. 27: i drop "generic travel bug" in a new maple grove cache.
nov. 29: moe the sleaze picks it up.
dec. 1: i make plans to hit a few nearby geocaches after visiting the summit brewery. (much to my disappointment, nobody had hidden a micro within spitting distance of the brewery.) research turns up a few nearby caches, including this one.
dec. 2: i have to abort my brewery/geocaching plan.
dec. 9: i complete the brewery tour, a week after i planned. taking the information i compiled on dec. 1, i head in search of area caches, this one being the first. i have no reason to assume any of them have gone missing in the past week, and i was too lazy to look any of 'em up again prior to my visit.
so imagine my surprise when i find the same travel bug i dropped in maple grove less than 2 weeks ago. out of the hundreds of caches in the metro, i found it slightly amazing i came across the same bug during one my rare geocaching expeditions east of minneapolis.
i dropped off another travel bug, grabbed something and dropped something else. i think this is the cache where i traded million dollar bills. i didn't take notes today, like i usually do.
oh yeah, i took a deck of mystic lake playing cards from the cache, i think. (or was it the other cache.) i have dropped plenty of these decks around the metro...i wonder if this was one of them.
i enjoyed visiting this area. the trails were a bit muddy, but getting in and out wasn't too tough. (lots of great hiding spots.)
