    Best thing about wood heat is it heats you up 6 times: when you cut it, lug it, stack it, split it, lug it and then when you burn it! Ok, 5 times anyway!
    The farmer gave permission to place the cache in the field, but the bull charges.

A lot of caches I've done said that they were winter friendly, but many of them also required bushwacking. I suppose that might be easier in the winter when you're not fighting your way through brush, but what I want to know is if there are levels of winter friendliness. What's the criteria? Is a cache considered winter friendly if it's more than 3' off the ground? Or is there more to it? Do COs usually archive their caches temporarily in the winter?

    I've held off on doing some caches that say they are on snowshoe trails so I can do them later and there are always the GRCs to rely on, but how do I go about finding real winter caches?
    Winter is a good time to grab those "Lake and Pond" caches. Some caches are on islands.......if you don't have a boat, wait till winter and walk to them. I got my first 150 caches in the snow, last year! A lot of poking and digging, for sure. NO BUGS!! NO MUD!!

    What a great plan!!! There is at least one cache on an island in McGrath pond here in town. With the exception of the Messalonskee Trail series (I'm waiting for my wifes ankle to mend enough that we can do the whole thing together), I've grabbed every landbound cache in Oakland and was wondering how to get to that. I am now excited for ice. Really, only a little excited. They are still caching in 70 degree weather in Florida

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    Rick we have already been making plans for another winter camping event. The plan this year is to have the event closer to the road, where there is better parking. I'll be updating as time goes on, but this should be the best one yet. See ya there.

    You Guys Should Have Made It An Event. Sounds Like You Had A Lot Of Fun. With Out The Cold You Might See Me Do Something Like That. Where My Jeep Is Black Would That Make It Dark Orange?
