Bemidji Caching Trip Day 3

Day three of our geocaching excursion began the same way day two did, with breakfast at the hotel.  I really like breakfast at the Holiday Inn.  We decided to do some more biking today, this time heading South along the Paul Bunyan trail.  We drove to where the trail starts to head out of town, but this time there wasn't a public parking lot. We decided to park at a church because I didn't think anyone would be there on Labor Day. We couldn't find the first couple of caches, but then started to have better luck. Most were still matchstick containers, but were much more difficult to find then what we'd seen the previous day.  They were further back in the woods, and the terrain had more hills. I was hoping to make it out to Guthrie, but the temperature started to climb and we were running out of water, so we decided to head back. At the time we had found 72 caches for the day and our biking trip would be 21 miles. When we got back to the truck we decided to head back to the hotel to shower and drop the bikes off. We also took the time to log our finds and load up some waypoints for after supper. We decided to hit up Bar 209 again for some cheese curds, this time Erin ordered the pot roast and it wasn't as good as the burger she had previously. We headed just North of Bemidji to try to find some more caches. We found 3 out of the 6 we tried for before I got sap all over my hands and it started to rain. We decided to call it a day and went to Target to pick up some miscellaneous stuff, before heading back to the hotel to lounge around in the hot tub.
