Our First "Nano" Cache

Although nano is not an official designation of a geocache, we found our first in St. Bonifacious, Minnesota. The GPS unit took us to a very public place just packed with muggles, so we decided to stop back. Later, with no one around, the search began. According to the description, we were looking for a cache that was 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch in size. Pretty small. . . but large enough to have a log inside. You can see how small it is compared to the film canister in the photo.

It took a bit of looking around, but persistence paid off. It was indeed tiny, but once opened it did have a log inside. We were thrilled. After signing the log, getting it back in the container proved harder than finding the thing in the first place.

St. Bonifacious is the site of a former Nike missile base. Just west of Minneapolis , the site was developed during the cold war to destroy Soviet bombers attacking the Twin Cities. The attack never came, so the base now stands abandoned. One of the missiles is on display in the city park.
