    I have attached a topo map.
    The map looks about right. You'll be driving right past the Mug Cache right to a field. The road is easily drivable. Just remember, the gate will be unlocked when I get there. Just swing it open, drive through, then close it but don't lock it.

Then cache all day tomorrow and hit the event later. See you all there.
    Those that don't bring their food, there will be a food run, according to Jordan

    oops, I wasn't paying attention as usual...we'll bring hamburger rolls, plates and other stuff. (already 2 bringing chips)
    As much as I'd enjoy watching Brad fall asleep in front of the fire, my camping gear isn't up to it. Holes in the tent, sleeping bags that have lost all their stuffing...it's really quite sad.
    In my family we decorate people who fall asleep when the rest of us is awake, I'd be careful Brad.
    And I do have the little grill thing..it'll do about 8 hamburgers at a time.

    Maybe a little off, lol that was with my old GPS and I think the height was off on that. Its on level land. You can drive right to it. The directions on the geocaching.com site are 100% clear. My cell is 540-5556 if you need any help.
    Thanks.

    I would hate to go and people not be able to set up a tent or have a fire at that. I am open for suggestions. I will go rain or shine, but who else, I do not know. I don't know if people want to cache in the rain at that and it don't look like a hike will be happening if its going to be raining...
    Hate to stay at a hotel its too expensive. I am open to ideas.

    I would not worry to much. We are geocachers, we will have fun.

    Besides with my hammock I can set it up anywhere as long as there are trees and even if there aren't any trees. I will not have to worry about the wet ground. LOL
