We were right by there when we went to see ZB's snow fort last week. See if you can see that fort from the air, Labrat.
No snow forts where you're going, though. Cool

Oh, I get it now. You didn't put all these out... just compiled the eligible ones for when you put out your challenge. Interesting.

My father-in-law makes bird houses. A lot of them. He never puts them out, or sells them. They just sit in the basement at his house. I was talking to my wife about making them into a series of caches - "Don's Birdhouses" or something like that, or using one for the final cache in this challenge. They'd look like that TB hotel in Hudson (if that means anything to anyone here).

It's a five hour drive to get to da UP, eh from here, but I know my mother-in-law would appreciate getting some of them out of the house, and it would give him a reason to build more.

Willow River State Park is one of the few state parks we haven't visited. I keep telling Trekkin' we need to get there....sooner or later we will.

Interview is Wednesday afternoon. Found that out while I was in the middle of the woods on my skate skis. Oh and I don't recommend trying to ski through 2 feet of snow on skates. Classics would have been much better when I decided to explore Navarino Wildlife Area.

Yes you do! It's beautiful there. We saw a bunch of woodpeckers during our first visit.

When you so your challenge cache, how will you define "along Hwy 64"? I'd suggest including a maximum distance from the highway, for example: Find 64 caches within one mile of highway 64.

Depending on how you word it, I have between 18 and 30, so I have some work to do before I could claim a find.

Keeping within .3 from the highway should give you my bookmark list, if not .1
I like how that worked out to be exactly 64!
But, if I am reading things correctly, I can't specify exactly which caches are in a challenge now?

That's why I suggested a mile. If you stick to just those 64 caches, I don't think that it will get published. Plus, if one cache gets archived, then the challenge is not possible. There may also be other caches that have been archived that would qualify.

Also to have a challenge cache published the CO must have met the requirements of the challenge. This is a requirement, but I have seen a few published where the CO had not found the requirements. Usually you will need a list of twice as many qualifying caches as the amount required to find. Eventually someone will hide a power trail along HWY 64 and the challenge will become insignificant.
