Searching for Old Caches

Just out of curiosity, and I am pretty sure there is not, but is there a way to search an area for a long archived cache? The story is of the very first geocache we found back in 2003. We found one cache in the park and then that was it. In 2008 we got reintroduced to caching and that is where we took off from. My question is, is it possible to find the listing from the old cache? It would be very difficult to search through older cachers' find records since there are not all that many cachers still around from then and most of those that still are have many thousands and thousands of finds. No bother if there isn't a way, just curious.

 

Thanks for any and all help,

Find a close by cache that is still active and that was active at that time. Scroll back to the approximate date. Look at the finders from around that time frame, then scroll through their finds looking at archived ones near their find of your reference cache. Its even easier if the cacher is no longer around, less to scroll through.

Even better.

Post the name of the park and what town / city it is in. Or, give the GC Code for a newer cache in the same park.

 

Volunteer cache reviewers can "see" archived caches in search results, for obvious reasons. One of us would be happy to help, since this will be a great story if you can go back and log your early find from way back then.

The caches (I remember now that there were multiple) were in Moris T. Baker Regional Park in Maple Plain, MN. None of the 2003 original caches still exist. The oldest active caches were published in 2007 and have no connections to the 2003 caches. The caches we found were near the currently active cache GC169WZ. Thanks for any help you can give.
