  1. Looking forward to it. The way the temperature has stayed low and the larger than usual snow pack might be later than usual for high altitude hikes. The one we talked about has a new cache on the trail about half way up that was placed last year and hasn't been found yet.
  2. At first I thought it might be possible that it was late logging before they got an account, although it would of been more likely a few years ago when you could still get on the web site and get coordinates with out logging in not very likely now. It appears to be even more unlikely as the count rises (129 when I last checked) that this is the case.
  3. Square Bear


    I first met Brian when I was a seasoned cacher of a hundred finds and he had just started, I can't imagine going to an event in the NW and not seeing him there. He would be there even on the hiking ones and even when he couldn't make the hike. Some times he would do part of it and then turn around and wait for us at the trail head or even meet with us at the local watering hole after wards. He will be some one I will truly miss.
  4. This the wrong time of the year for me to take leave, but it's the last year. I should have 370 days till I start terminal leave.
  5. Sorry I won't have time to make chili won't be flying in until Friday night and TL will be picking me up Saturday morning.
  6. My favorite multi Control The Night A very original cache that just has to be done.
  7. Won't be able to make it on the 29th due to this event. A Geo-Roast for Square Bear
  8. Lookout Lookout had all kinds of the low growing Huckleberries up near the top. (I like them alot better than the taller growing Huckleberries). Great views and a lookout that dosn't get a lot of visitors.
  9. I've thought about placing a cache there several times. It will be just as great to find one there, hope to give it a try soon.
  10. I hope the hike goes well, I'll be back some time next week. I'm sure looking forward to some thing less than 110 degress in the shade.
  11. Great a hike in my neck of the woods while I'm not there to go. The Baker Lake Trail cache can be a little tricky the cords are not spot on so make sure you know the hint. I didn't take it the first time and didn't find the cache until I went back a second time with the hint. PNT is mentioned in this Month's Backpacker magaizine, and they have a two page ad on the new Bushnell GPS.
  12. Going to miss the next couple but should be back in time to go to Col Bob in August. See every one then.
  13. Here is the picture from my profile page
  14. So is this were we are meeting now?????
  15. You can look Here for a list of vendors. I have one and will be bringing it.
  16. Ok maybe the falls wouldn't be so bad and some thing different Hike Report
  17. were as mine would be for Boulder River
  18. You can't get any more personalized than this
  19. If any one wants to look at the trail map it can be found here Blanchard Hill Map
  20. Valley View GC61EE is also on the trail near the beginning, and the listed coordinates for Night Creatures GCNPVA is the parking lot. Done this hike several times and looking forward to doing it again.
  21. I guess I'll beg to differ for a couple of reasons. Sitting in that car watching traffic and people go by was not my idea of a fun time. Missing the challenge of making it up to the lake was a big disappointment and it's going to be a targeted hike next winter because of that. I'd rather DNF being up there than DNF having to turn back even if it was the right thing to do. As an update, I'm moving around a little bit with the help of a cane. I'll probably take tomorrow off. You know I was talking about not finding the cache We did miss you on the hike up.
  22. I got a late start Saturday morning had been working on the Jeep the night before and it took me longer to get the top back on than I thought I was heading out the door thinking that I would be an hour late getting to the top and the rest of the group would be long gone. I gave Totem Lake a call figuring they would almost be heading up to the pass all ready only to find out that he was still at home. That’s when I heard about the Jeep being stolen and that Criminal and Land Rover were on the way to pick him up, the still beat me to the summit and then I see them getting out of the TL’s Jeep that’s when I find out that the system shut the fuel off down the road and they had found it. TL didn’t miss much after getting to the spot were the cache was at I tried digging down and ran in to a big block of ice and wasn’t making much head way, then Criminal tried with out much luck either. With out knowing if we were in the exact spot or just how deep the ice was we called it a day and headed back down jumped in the vehicles and headed to the nearest bar for a couple of cold ones.
  23. All the picnic shelters are closed due to the winter storms and won't be open again until the middle of May. The page is posted and waiting for approval.
  24. I just have a few details to iron out with the Ranger like were we are going to need to meet up and were we can do the pot luck afterwards.
