    Default Are you sick of winter?

    I know the most diehard of Mainers love winter and all it has to offer but there are some who are just about giving up on all the snow this winter. Are you one of them?

    I thought we were just getting started.

    Snow makes things interesting and levels the playing field. ie many caches are hidden much better and are a challange to find.

    When I fall, which I seem to do often, I seldom get dirty if it is in snow.

    There are a lot fewer bugs when there is snow on the ground.

    Cache in bogs and swamps are much easier to get to when there is snow.

    I like the snow.

    Put me in the Love-Winter-And-Think-It's-Just-About-Over-Unfortunately category. On the flip side, winter time for me is mostly dedicated to sledding . . . come Spring time I begin to go caching . . . especially since I can't go ATVing with Mud Season.

    Yup. Was the only time to do the Etna Bog Cache. And winter is the only time that most of us can get to those caches on islands on Maine ponds! LOL!

    I think winter is officially over for me now . . . in 5 days I'm going to the Carribean for a week which means the next two weekends are shot.

    However, my brother in law from CT and I did get in a 261 mile ride yesterday . . . drove up to Lincoln, off loaded the sleds, rode to Kokadjo, realized I should have brought my GPSr after getting a little lost near the #4 Mountain (but on the flip side the scenery up there was absolutely stunning with snow-covered mountain vistas and every tree sheathed in a covering of glistening ice and snow), got lost again as I thought we had missed a turn (turns out we didn't so we ended up riding an additional 20 miles each way) . . . started and finished our day at the same place . . . Dysarts.

    I think I can officially give up the riding now and welcome Spring.
