    The ice was out that's why he couldn't get the ski, it went into the water....lol

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    yeah, we go on a cache run... and what does the cache run king not do... sign the log for us!
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    Some of us chose to stop and search one last time for the find. You could have stopped and looked too. I sure was glad to have found and logged it. I can't imagine ever coming back to the area for just that one cache. I'm sure you will find the time to log it. Good luck!

    Cache run King? must be thinking of TAT.
    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    actually we did stop and look one last time, but i was looking at the other end of the bridge where it wasnt fully investigated...

    Well having gone back to the area for no caches, I can tell you that it is a very nice walk and a pretty area. I may even go back again and explore the hut more or look for things. A guy I know says never do all the caches close to your house just in case you want to do a cache that you don't have to drive a long ways for.

    I like your philosophy Team Richards! Thanks again for tagging along with us and getting us digging in the right areas! It was a lot of fun!

    Team Richards has echoed something I wished I had been told or read early on - leave some of those at home - for when you just need a cache fix.......and driving miles won't do. I have a few left close but they are all significant hike - body, don't fail me when I attempt them!

    Well, I was with TAT when all this happened and I must say I was terrified! I thought he had gone over with the ski! You all can't imagine how it looked, seeing him speeding over the edge of the abyss in chase of the ski! He's a regular TARZAN and grabbed a tree at the last moment. PHEW!

    I went out yesterday, 2/25/08 to do the Messalonski series. Di and I had done 1 and 2 and with all the "tracks" I figured the group of you left I guessed it would be farily easy hiking and somwhat helpful. Found 3 thru six without too much effort ( I did have helpful clues from Rich and Carol on 3 and 4. After doing 6 I decided to head back to the "squeeze" cache before loading the coords for #7. I figured Early fences meant something located close to the chain link fences where the trail starts! NOT! So by this time it was starting to get dark so now I"ve got to go back and get the last @#$#$% cache. Not realy a problem as the trail system is spectacular, plus I want to check on my loon that Steph placed there.
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    Yeah...I remember in my American history class about the pilgrims clearing the land and building CHAIN LINK FENCES.
