INTIMIDAT3R check_circle 1 month 3 weeks 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!

Saw this show up yesterday and didnt have time to go out Saturday. This morning I see it was still out in the wild and not claimed yet. Took off for a nice drive and came upon the area around 9:30. Took a bit but I ended up finding it tucked in the spout. Thanks for placing this.

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 month 3 weeks 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.

Well this time i was victorious. After a "No Luck" last week, Eagle and I made our way out to GZ for a search. We searched high and low for 30 mins and still no luck. I think I need a refresher course on Geocaching because I must have looked at it 4 times and never saw it. Luckily with PAF, I was given a direction and saw it as I approached. Good hide!! Great location! Thanks for the fun! Happy Hunting!

Max is looking for a good watering hole. He needs to make his way down the hill, but only a little ways.

Take the upper trail. The terrain is about a 2.
Hint: Just about head high.

Max is looking for something yummy for dinner and he really likes fresh grass. Too bad that it's not available in the Tundra but since he's here he doesn't mind half dead grass.

Hint: Under a rock.

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.

I had resigned myself to not getting one of these, what with COVID-19 and the game coming to an end. When I got off my string of morning meetings and checked the map, and saw it was right up the hill for me, I had to try. Hike instead of lunch today, and made it up to the fireplace in 34min for the find.

It is a bit of a hike to find the place where Mammoths are rumored to still roam on Squak Mountain. They are known to be hiding in caves on rock walls, possibly even on the side of a random large fireplace!

N 14th St, Lincoln, NE, US

“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)


cron publish 1 month 3 weeks ago 802 - Mamouth Tower

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.

Good Luck

130th St, Delmar, IA, US

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!!! 🐘

This mammoth traveled with the Jamms on a camping trip to Fulton County. He visited the home of MWGB and couldn’t figure out why us cachers wanted to be out in this heat. On the way home, we stopped for lunch. One mention of the word blizzard and he jumped ship! Err....camper....

Poor little thing just needed a way to cool off.

Thanks for the hide. Beautiful morning to drive this beautiful rural area. I saw the post for this early this morning and thought to myself that surely the folks in the Conroe are would beat me to it. So, went on my bike ride, came home and ate breakfast and all the while waited for the notice that it had been claimed. When I realized that it hadn't, I finally decided to go for it. It was a 50 minute drive from my area in Spring. The closer I got the more excited I got and hoped it was still there, and thankfully it was. The art work on that building is AWESOME. Thanks again!

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.

Surely back in the day the mammoths roamed freely through these fields. This mammoth took refuge in a brilliant piece of art depicting the heritage of Texas and specifically Montgomery, TX- the birthplace of the Texas flag! After you snag this tag stick around to do some geocaching and learn some history.

If you look at the pics closely you might even see the location of the hid. You are looking for a magnetic key holder.

Camo-taped pb jar. Recycle!

If you’d like to see a beautiful historic bridge, walk down the dirt gravel road until you see it. Shown in the last photo.
