    The way they werre logging, Etna Bog is probably a drive up!

    Actually, I bet it's quite wet there this year...

    I'm up for an Etna bog search . . . I tried it once last year with a friend and he became convinced that our coords had to be off . . . whereas I became convinced that we were getting close, but since this was his first time out I agreed to cut the search short and log a DNF.

    Yeah, I need to get my act together and tackle Etna Bog this winter....but it needs to be very cold, very frozen and very little snow....then I'll go. Maybe.

    before you, lois and i became the "tgif gang", this was one of the 3 caches you promised that you would find with me. as soon as it freezes, i'm ready. not sure i'm ready for the cold just yet, though!

    I usually keep the nearest 975 caches in both my 60CSx and my Dell Axim. I have queries set up for almost everywhere I might go to out of my local area and can switch and download the new info in less than 5 minutes. I usually delete all but points which I'm saving (who wants to restart a 5 leg/5 mile multi?) before downloading the new info, even if it's for the same area. Way back when this was a good practice, but probably not very necessary anymore. I always leave at least 25 waypoints available during each download.
