4th St S, St Cloud, MN, US location_on N 45 33.360, W 094 09.656

I placed this tag in my hometown of Saint Cloud, Minnesota near a lake where I spent countless hours as a child. My former muggle sister who recently placed several of her own caches (!!!) was along for the hide. The area has changed a lot since we were little, but it felt like the right place to leave George.

There is quite a bit to see in the surrounding area, so bring a picnic and enjoy the scenic views.

Bleh! Rodents - who needs 'em? As it turns out, this one is extra large. I'm told they are the largest rodent in North America. Back in the early days of the USA, they even made hats out of 'em. But, despite them being rodents, I'm told they have a beneficial effect on the environment, both for water and wildlife. Good for them! As for me, I've gone into hiding - they're just too big! FYI, it is unlikely that there is cell service here.

Minerva is the Roman goddess of poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, weaving, crafts and magic. If you look to the west, you'll see her likeness depicted on a brick column at the Rourke Art Museum.

Molly Mammoth is hiding near her dear friend, Van Gogh. You'll note the sculpture's likeness is uncanny to the Dutch-painted as it even has a bandage around his ears! [Hint: hoofs on the ground]

If your schedule permits, Molly the Mammoth would love you to visit the Sticksgarden, an adopted city planter turned community space located across the street from the posted coordinates.

History has been made here. This was the long time home to The Omaha Royals, and the Home of the NCAA College World Series. So many relics of that time are still here. You can see many signs pointing to that fact, spread throughout the facility. It is said that home plate is exactly where it was when this place was bigger and full of energy. Maybe my ancestors were here. I am here. My cousin is just over the right field wall, at the Henry Doorly Zoo.

Matthew was spending some time at Parker Dam State park practicing some social distancing. The weather was HOT & HUMID and he needed a drink. As he walked down the road he noticed that there was a bridge that went over the creek. After getting a drink he made his way back up to the bridge, when all of a sudden a large truck scared him into hiding. He is hidden very close in the last pic near the the post with the name of the creek on it. *HINT** "Magnetic and covered"


PuppyPlayingCache check_circle 6 days 2 hours ago 425 - Mammoth At The Museum

Parrington Oval, Norman, OK, US

I couldn’t believe my eyes, as I stared down at my phone. It was early morning and I had just received wonderful news. As I stared down at my phone, confirming a new mammoth in my area, excitement began to boil. It was just yesterday that I had checked to see, for the first time in awhile, if any mammoths had made it to Oklahoma, only to be disappointed with negative results. With only 28 days left, I had felt my luck running out on ever getting that mammoth. So as I stared at my phone, letting the news sink in, I knew this was it, my chance, and booked it out door. As I drove in the early morning rush hour traffic all I could think was “please let anyone else going after this mammoth be stuck in morning traffic too!” As I got closer to GZ, I realized exactly where I was headed. When I pulled into the Sam Noble Museum parking lot, I set my eyes on the most obvious host that I knew would have my mammoth. I made a beeline out of my car and to the host...the buffalo statue. I was buzzing with excitement as I skipped my way up. After feeling under hooves, my hand landed on the container and my heart skipped a beat. Still in disbelief, I opened that container to find my reward! Finally!! There’s no better way to start a morning off than with snagging the tag! To the rest of my caching peers, I wish you all good luck on the last 28 days. And a big thanks to those making it happen! ~PuppyPlayingCache68~

What better place to find a mammoth tag than at the Oklahoma Natural History Museum in Norman? This museum is fantastic and reasonably priced so I’d recommend taking some time to walk through if you have time.

The tag is outside of the museum, and being guarded by a large COVID-free bison. How do I know it’s COVID-free, you might ask? Because it’s wearing a mask, of course! Ha.

Hint: Bison will trample you, if you don’t watch out for the “hooves” (or is it hoofs?)!

INTIMIDAT3R check_circle 1 week 49 minutes ago 839 - Mammoth Turtle

Pleasant Dr, McGregor, IA, US

A couple of weeks ago a mammoth was hidden in LaCrosse, WI so we drove all the way there from Waterloo, IA only to find that it had been hidden in a not-so-good place and disappeared before anyone found it.

Fast forward a week, I checked my email this morning and had 2 mammoth notifications. One from yesterday and one for today.

We headed to Cresco, IA because there was a mammoth hidden at the fairgrounds yesterday. When we got there it was missing and no one claimed it yet.

Since there was another mammoth hidden in McGregor, IA, we headed east in hope's it would still be here.

While on the way to McGregor, we got notification that NinjaB had beat us to the Cresco mammoth by 5 minutes. He's truly a ninja because we never even saw him or a footprint.

We arrived in McGregor and with a little help from my wife and Pinky... Bingo!

Husband was snoring and couldn't get back to sleep. What better to do at 6:30 AM then try for a mammoth? Had to hurriedly find some clothes that weren't in the bedroom. One pair of pants and one tank top were found and were layered over PJ's and off I went. So stoked the New West FTF hounds weren't up yet. Thank you!!!


cron publish 1 week 4 hours ago 167 - Late to the Party

Front St, New Westminster, BC, CA

This mammoth has been busy taking in all that New Westminster's Pier Park has to offer. Periods of playing basketball and volleyball has been interspersed with lounging at the beach, on the grass or on one of the many available lounge chairs.

The mammoth has really enjoyed this place knowing that the murky waters below are filled with White Sturgeon, which have survived from the days of the dinosaurs.

When you park your car you may notice the salmon painted nearby pointing the way to this tag with arrows.

You will locate this mammoth tucked up against the metal border of a garden planter, adjacent to a cement support.

The place can be especially busy in the evenings so best to get here sooner rather than later.

With the extinction of county fairs this year Mammoths have seeked this ground of emptiness for safe keeping. This one is thirsty and looking for some water. The well may be dried up but that doesnt keep him from still looking. Look at the end of the spout and that is where he is hidden.

“Mammoths roamed Nebraska’s grassland for more than one million years before mysteriously disappearing between 11,000 and 10,000 years ago. these extinct relatives of today’s elephants were the largest mammal’s ever to walk the great plains. Adult males stood more than 13 feet tall at the shoulder and had a weight of over 24,000 pounds. Mammoth bones and teeth have been found in ice age deposits in all but three of Nebraska’s 93 counties. Bones and tusks were uncovered just 100 yards east of where you are now standing. This sculpture was completed by Fred J. Hoppe in 1998” (lamp post nearest back right foot)

Since Mammoths are large creatures it helps to put this on one of the larger objects in town. Parking is nearby and will be a quick find. Look in S.E. corner on horizontal support beam. Seek out a 6 bolt plate. Reach under top one and this Mammouth is hiding out there.

Just when I thought all the Wooly Mammoths were extinct this fella pops up in one of my favorite cemeteries. Had to wait until after work to hunt down this beast.

On the way over I was extremely anxious in wondering what I was going to find if anything since it published over 12 hours ago. Would it have moved on? Did someone already snag this?

Upon searching GZ I found a container! What was in it? Nuts, fur, teeth, or the whole Wooly Mammoth itself?!?
Thankfully it was the Mammoth!!! 🐘
