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!

:I My own fault, not finding this one. I found the fence just fine. However, being the stereotypical geek, I didn’t read the book for my GPS and couldn’t project the waypoint for the second stage. That and I started this one after dark, which didn’t help me any. (sigh)

Very close to home, this was an easy one to find. At least the general location. I’m sure I know where the cache is, but I had to take a pass on an actual visit as there were too many people around to do it discretely.

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.
