Although we will accept nominations at any time, this thread is to remind everyone that we are accepting Nominations for Cache or Cache Series of the Month for January 2018. You can submit COTM nominations by either email email@example.com or post a nomination in this thread. Nominations need to be written in a way that gives the reader a spoiler-free description of what make the cache special. You must include the Cache Owner, Cache Name and GC code (of one of the caches in the series) with your nomination. Your nomination must also include a brief write-up for the cache (at least a sentence...but I would prefer something a bit longer...I honestly think we are capable of writing a couple sentences or a nice paragraph).
If you find an outstanding cache, reply to this post!!! Nominations for January 2018 Cache or Cache Series of the Month will remain open until the end of the current month (December 31).
I would like to nominate the Death March with Esko series, which is located on the FDL ski trails outside of Cloquet. This is a very well done series and is a challenge to do! The caches tend to get lonely due to the effort of completing the series (I was the last one, two years ago). I had to do it on two different days, but there have been a few cachers that have completed it in one day. How they did it, I do not know. One side of the series is very tough to get through, at least in the summer... but the other side, was not so bad, but it does involve a good deal of hiking. Especially when you take the wrong trail, lol. Here is the link to the final: FINALLY DONE DEATH MARCHING WITH ESKO
I would like to nominate the new Letterbox/Hybrid series by tonkaMN. This is a series of 26 Letterbox Puzzles that all are fairly easy to solve from home and are based on some of the most basic puzzle solving skills. When the coords are all solved and you head out to find the caches you will be delighted to see that each PnG micro is set up with its own stamp for your logbook. Quite a bit of time and effort went into this series. Here is the first one Another Easy Letterbox Puzzle. The rest are found by searching for nearby caches of that type.
