+TeamGuisinger Posted February 14, 2006 Share Posted February 14, 2006 We're coming to Colorado in June to see if our eastern lungs can handle the altitude caching. We are visiting my sister who lives in Manitou, but our secret plan is to get her hooked on geocaching. She's already a hiker/runner(one of those who thinks running the Pikes Peak Marithon is fun) and loves outdoor stuff, so it shouldn't be hard to convert her. As of right now, we may only use one full day caching, but I would definately like 2 better. Anyway, with the area being so saturated (Manitou/Colorado Springs) and quite a few listings are 2-3 mile hikes, we're trying to figure out a game plan. We dont really like quick stops, but like I said we're packing a day full and we're not sure how the altitude will affect us. We're also planning to hit all the local interest spots (the gorge, garden of the gods, pikes peak, etc.) so we'll hit some of those caches during sightseeing. We're staying a mile from the trading post at garden of the gods, and I think that were going to place one since my sis runs in a very scenic area like every day and will take over maintaining it for us. So, we need your input since yall know what to expect. My only worry as of now is some of the critters that we're not used to.(I dont think they'll let my leadslinging sidekick on the plane.) Let's hear it, where should we go, whos the tricky dicky hiders of the area. We like a challenge, we also like seeing forgotten history. Also we're looking for a noctournal, and I would love to tackle a 5/5 since there are none here in Ohio. Quote Link to comment
