It's my turn to share my experience out on the trail today. It all started when I decided to turn an unexpected afternoon off into my first time ever on this stretch of trail. I called BOuLdeR7 to tell him that I was going caching and he told me that the FTF on this one was still up for grabs. I felt energized by the sunshine and decided to go for it. As I drove around trying to find the closest place to park, I saw a familiar van and parked behind it. Just as I was heading in to the parking lot of a business where I received permission to access the trail from an employee who happened to be outside and told me that his employer was friendly to folks cutting through the parking lot to the trail, I saw that van drive away with FurryHermit at the wheel. The weather was perfect for this kind of hike!!! Even though I did not find Geo's cache, I enjoyed my trek very much. It was nice running into beccaday and coco and chatting a bit before giving it my own super duper search. I guess it wasn't so super cuz I didn't find it but I took lots of pictures along the way. The terrain rating is well deserved with all the inch-thick ice breaking through almost everywhere you walk in the marsh. I managed to keep my hands and feet warm and dry for the entire journey. I did, however get my knees a little wet and chilly but I didn't mind. I was so focused on this cache that as I was hiking back out to my van, I thought, "hey, I should try to find a different cache so I at least have 1 find for today". I haven't been out hunting much lately :( I was excited that when I pulled my GPS out of my pocket to see what was near me, I found one from the Amazing Race called Ernie. I found that clever hide and left feeling much better :) I will certainly be back!!!
