[black][/b][/i]Nice winter day to be out and about grabbing a few caches in and around the area. It’s hard to believe with temps in the teens that we would say it’s a nice winter day, but as we completed the “Stumped on the Wiouwash trail” series in Oshkosh earlier today, the bright sun felt great. Have to admit I was actually starting to sweat. By the way, that was a fun series of hides and would recommend others to find them if you haven’t already. As we closed in on another milestone we decided this “All Weather Caching Challenge” cache would be a great choice for our #3600 cache since this winter is one for the record books thanks to the Polar Vortex we’ve been hearing (and feeling) so much about this winter!
We enjoy caching in all four seasons and our stats page will confirm that, but have to admit we’ve gotten cold fingers more than once signing some of the logs the past few months. Oh well… maybe summer will be here soon and then we can complain about how hot it is!
A couple of “Cold” cache favorites were the Woodpecker Series of Johnson Creek and the Ten Firefighter Caches on the Kiel River. We completed both series walking the ice in late January 2013 and had a awesome time finding all the caches in both series.
Our “Hot” cache favorites were when we biked the Long Prairie/Stone Bridge Trail in Illinois in early September 2012. We biked the trail three consecutive days and found most of the caches along the way. Unfortunately the first day we were there the temps were close to 100 degrees and humid. Luckily the trail had several shady spots along the way but it was still hot! Never the less, we had a great time!
Thanks CJ for the fun challenge and hide. We’ve surely made some very memorable geocaching experiences over the past few years and those memories will last a lifetime!!
