    Default best DNFs

    I am home for the next couple of days on bed rest and was checking out the forumns of gc.com and came accross a neat disscusion about best dnfs. I would be interested in your story about the best dnf. Heres mine:

    GCG3E9 Drum n Bass

    This was more of a couldn't get there in time instead of a didnot find. This should count for us. We got within 100 ft of the cache. THe snow was so deep and we left our snowshoes at the base of the hill so that we could climb. I thought the snow would be pretty much gone as it was where we were. I'll be back as soon as snow is gone. Hard to beleive one would put them selves trough that for a Mctoy and a log book.

    Thanks this one is tough. Dave1976 and Girlmate

    We where so close and such a long hike for us. We had to snow shoe in from the main road and then up the hill. Anyone who has seen Souabounge mountain nows the front is a cliff. We attempted this cache in the early days of our caching. I have since learned that the shortest way isnt always the best or the fastest. We had alot of fun attempting it the first time but much more fun when we went back with our geopals. We braved the face of the mounbtain and crawled under logs and through bushes all to get so close and realize that we had to get back to the road before dark, we noticed many bear tracks on the way in that left kinda a scared taste in Mrs. 76 mouth. As I look back that was definatly the toughest and most stressful cache we have ever done. Please folks enjoy this thread and all cachers partcipate in the thread. Happy trails caching season is here.

    Last weekend my cousin was here visiting and I convince him to set up a geocaching account. We immediately went out and did two local caches. Next morning I told him we would go do "lets go camping" and "Barrows falls".Luke asked me if we'd need a shovel, but I assured him that I knew right where the Barrows falls cache was and at the worst we might need to kick a little snow away to get to the cache. After all most of us at the winter camp out last year had done the cache in the snow with no problem. Well that was last year, this year the snow was so deep I didn't even recognize the terrain. After a valiant effort we left with our heads hanging down. Luke was real impressed with the old pro teaching him the ropes. Lesson to be learn,
    always go prepared.

    It's not the hunters you need to worry about in that area...
