My dad and I were in Lindstrom to pick up something for my step-mother. I had the GPS with me and noticed this one was very close by. Since my dad was willing to indulge me, we headed over to the park–how could I pass it up? I was nervous for a while, not having the info from this page with me, so I didn’t know if it was a multi-stage, or had a puzzle attached. How lucky am I?

Very clever hide! It was 68 degrees and very sunny when we were there at about 1200 CDT.

For those looking, I can say trust your GPS and really look, even if you don’t think it’ll be there. I was nearly ready to give up but looked from just the right angle and there it was. That was after I walked around the spot about 8 times.

Easy find very close to home. I had tried it once last fall, but stealth was an issue with the tennis courts and the field in use at the time. This time, no problem.

Nice easy find. I got lucky and came at it from just the right angle, so the cache jumped right out at me. TNLN. Thanks!

Cache was still in good shape. This park is huge, considering how much residential area so close by. It has a little bit of everything. TNLN.

Nice quick find on the way home. TNLN. Thanks!

TNLN. This was a nice challenge, but not too hard. I had avoided micros until now. This one makes me less afraid to give them a go. Love the containers too. Thanks, RJ!

Very easy find, saw the cache from about 40 feet away. I remember playing Frisbee golf here several years ago. At one time I lived just across the street from the West side of the park.

I was probably one of the cars/people rickrich saw. The other was probably some guy that was apparently testing how loud his car stereo would go. TNLN

Not a bad park in this up-and-coming area. Cache was fairly easy to find. The log book is in good shape, but I think the previous water leak got to the stamper. There’s blue dye spread liberally inside the container. Sadly, I didn’t have anything with me to attempt a cleanup. TNLN.

Tiny little park that looks and smells like it’s seen some recent, minor, fire damage. After coming up bust on two previous micros and a 3 start regular cache, this one was easy to find. Give it snow in the winter and I’m sure it will live up to its three stars. Thanks for the hide!

At first I was worried when I got to the first coords, looking at the area. It was a nice day for a walk, so I carried on. I got to see some geese and a couple ducks that hadn’t headed south. Very enjoyable for my first multi. TNLN.
