Pickforde Dr, Misty Meadows, Columbus, OH, US location_on N 40 04.043, W 083 05.213

Lin-Manuel, the mammoth, went into a deep hibernation after attending A Winter Ball. He slept undisturbed until 2020, when he was rudely awakened by the sound and vibration of construction near his resting place. He was frightened and Helpless, not sure how he could Stay Alive. "What Comes Next?" He wondered. He shrank himself down and found a hiding place in The Room Where It Happens (for geocachers). He sent out a message to his friends to Meet Me Inside. And then he settled in to Wait for It. He knew that History Has Its Eyes on You, and he wanted to see who seeks, who finds, and who will tell his story. The Workd is Wide Enough, so don't give away your shot at finding him!

GRANDVIEW, OH, US

This little mammoth wants to get to the Orton Geological Museum at The Ohio State University to see her friends! Can you help her get the rest of the way?

The museum is at the School of Earth Sciences, 155 S. Oval Mall, Columbus, OH 43210. It is a few miles away from the hiding place and is usually open 9-5, Mondays -Fridays. It is free. It is a small museum but has an excellent collection and is well worth the visit! For geocachers, there is an Earthcache there as well.

I woke up to a Snag the Tag alert advising me that it was in Eldridge Park. Eldridge Park! 🙀 That is so close to me! I bolted from my bed 🛌 and got ready asap. I had one little chore 🧹 to do before I could head out. Did that as fast as I could and started heading 🚙 to snag that tag! There was only one problem - it wasn’t the Eldridge Park in Sugar Land!!🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ I decided to head there anyway and take my chances. Would someone beat me there? I could always cache. If it hadn’t been for that darn chore, I would have grabbed it! Congrats to NanoBanana!

Snagged it! When the game entered it’s long pandemic pause we weren’t sure if we’d be able to get one of these tags. Not knowing how many tags remain, we pounced the opportunity to rush out the door for this one. After a short drive to parking we enjoyed the brisk early morning walk through the empty park. We quickly recognized the landmark tree from the photos and had the tag in hand soon. Thanks so much for placing this one!

After a long hike by my host, she finally decided to place me and part ways.

Nice parking by where I rest. She placed me in a nifty bag and you just might find me from afar. If not, I am resting in an Oak Tree sapling between two larger oak trees.

Nice trail to where I am resting. Should not be hard. Enjoy! The third picture is the trail to where I am. Coords are provided.

Saw this publish this Morning and saw that I was on our route to Seattle on our move from Utah to Guam. So I kept an eye on it throughout the day to see if anybody had found it and no behold nobody had found it I finally got to the coordinates. After watching out your tags near me and three different states I finally managed to get one before I was found. Thanks for putting this out!

Frozey heard tell of fellow mammoths at the history museum in Eugene, so he wandered down south in hopes of finding a heard in which to belong. Once he arrived at his target destination, it was obvious, before he even stepped foot out of the parking lot, that he needn't go any farher...what Frozey Fossil had hoped to find here was not to be today.

Mr. Fossil's mammoth search continues, but yours could end here!

Parking is metered Monday through Saturday from 7AM-6PM However, if you follow the hint photos, you should be able to get in and out in a flash!!

I was lucky enough to be on summer vacation this week with my family when this one published. It was about an hour drive to get here and the prize at the end was well worth the travel. The hike in this park was very enjoyable and it ended with a great big smile for me as I have chased tags like this before without success. I never saw the hint arrow made with rocks but I managed to find the mammoth anyway after a short search. Hopper the traveling frog wanted in on the photo action - LOL! Thank you to the hider for adding some adventure to my vacation.

We planned to go out today and didn't know where. This was just published and it gave us a direction to travel. The parking lot was full and off we went after I figured out a way to get the coordinates in a compass. It was the strangest thing to feel the air get soo cold as we approached the cave entrance. I got a little chilly on this nearly 90 degree day. Using the hint it was an easy find. Perfect temperature for the Wooly Mammoth.

Texas Pride is where this mammoth stopped by. Enjoy the antiques and the cool ambiance of a legendary BBQ joint that was featured on DDD with Guy Fiero. If you are here on a busy weekend the valet is on horseback... well hes isnt really a valet.. but her does direct parking and sometimes there are 2 cowboys for the job.

This mammoth hides on a metal post. watch for cowboys!!!! Post a photo or 2 with your claim log!! yeehaw!!!


cron publish 1 month 6 days ago 103 - Mammoth Roams the Crown

Luskey Blvd, Northwest Side, San Antonio, TX, US

This Mammoth has wandered through a prehistoric nature preserve where dinosaurs used to roam.

The round trip hike will be just under 2 miles. You will need to take the back loop trail that has some elevation change and a bit of terrain challenge. bring water or hike earlier in the day. the park is open at 7 and closes at sunset.

This mammoth is hidden under some rocks and grass at the turn in the trail where there is a berm of rocks. There is an arrow shaped with rocks to direct you to the mammoth here. Have fun with the hike.

There are Parking coordinates provided where there is running water restrooms and a beautiful park pavillion with plenty of shade.


cron publish 1 month 6 days ago 109 - Mammoth cave

S Sunnyside Rd, Hibernia, Rockaway, NJ, US

I was sitting on the nearby platform enjoying the nice cool air blowing out of the cave when something else caught my eye. If you come here in the early evening you can enjoy the show and watch the bats emerging from their home, and until today, I wasn't aware that there was also a mammoth living in the cave. Apparently he is shy and will run and hide as soon as anyone comes around, but if you search, you may be able to find him.

Beware of poison ivy in the area. You do not need to be in or near any of the poison ivy to find the tag. In other words, It is NOT under the platform, so there is no need to be in the poison ivy looking under the platform.

Mammoth loves history and hides very near the pillars that share Heritage to San Antonio.

Take a moment to peruse the small murals on the pillars. There is parking right here beneath the freeway. Please come and find this mammoth during daylight hours.

The mammoth tag you seek is located beneath a few rocks near a mammoth railway rail lying on the ground parallel with the 2nd row of big blue pillars away from Mission Rd.

Be sure to share some photos of the mammoth with some of the small murals located here.

I (Ol'Fogie) jumped outta bed to address another day of pushing Prozac and pickles. Just as I fired up the cachemobile I got the notice that this new tag had dropped.

It was only slightly off my regular route, so I made the quick detour to campus to score the find! Between the early hour and the pandemic, I pretty much had the place to myself.

Thanks for the tag, Norelkfiend!

Jacksonville-Baldwin Trail, Southwest Jacksonville, Jacksonville, FL, US

We where very excited to see that a Mammoth tag was in the Jacksonville area. It was available and it had only been out in public for two days. We jumped in the car and drove the 30 miles to the Baldwin bike trail. We walked a mile in the rain to the posted coordinates and started our search. We where quickly soaking wet and covered in spider webs from the many that cover the trees in the area. An hour and a half later we gave up. We kept an eye on the tag and saw that it had not been claimed several days later. Trip number two was much dryer than our first try. Twenty minutes into our search I spotted a small piece of plastic bag sticking out of the crack in the wooden fence. Not expecting much, I pulled on it and to my surprise it was the Mammoth tag. My daughter and I quickly high fived each other and did our version of a happy dance. This find made our day. Thank you to the hider for making this experience possible.

Thanks Dennis and Allyson
