It looks as of now that Crandon is reporting about 8" of snow cover.

Sorry for not keeping up on this thread. Mrs has been in Appleton, Dad very sick. Mr doesn't check the boards.

By the way Atkins use to be an old logging town. Close friends Mom lived there as a kid. Some of the foundations to buildings are still there.

Water was not an issue when we went. The swampy part was not bad at all. If my memory is working the thicket of trees was trickiest getting through.

Could meet you all somewhere after the trek if you want... or you could all come to our house in ER for cocoa and coffee... let us know. Will also depend on my Dad's health issues.

O.K. do we have a head count on who is all going? I have been following this thread from the start. And I see OPS, Seth and my self so far and may be TBC. Any one else? Is Dec. 27 still the day? And what time and where are we meeting? Just curious. Looking forward to it. Now all we need is some decent weather.
I will have a 3 1/2 hour drive. Hope the roads are in good winter driving condition. OBTW Thanks to OPS for the invite to join them on the hike to this cache.

I would like to be counted in for the 27th. There is a possibility of picking up another around Green Bay. Coming from Milwaukee, I'm looking at about a four hour drive. I will definitely be watching the weather on this one. I have no cell phone, so if somebody would want to pm me with a number in case of a last minute cancellation, it would be appreciated.

Right now I have room for one person to ride along if they want too, but they would be third on the list.

Ok,

Let's try to set some solid plans.

Snowshoe to Eagle Source
Sunday, December 27th 2009

Meet at service gate off Atkins Road
N45 40.906
W089 00.654

Time:
With some folks contemplating four hour drives let's say-
Meet and Greet 9:45-10:20
OPS will provide hot chocolate, hot apple cider, and cookies.
10:30 Start Time

If anyone wants a copy of my track log from our failed attempt (the out tracks will be useful for our in), or would like a cell number for contact- email or pm me.

OPS WILL be attempting this cache at that time. The only thing that would call it off would be extreme cold or bad roads. We will make a confirmation post some time around 5:30 AM if there's any question regarding weather.

We only need a rough count of folks planning on attending. Actually it really doesn't matter because we can bring lots of extra cookies! But, here's a tentative list.

Planning on Attending
OPS -4
Bailey- 1?
TBC- 1?
Benny- 1
Furfool- 1-2

Maybe?
THB
rsplash40?
Mathman and SirCumference
Cheezehead/ labs

Maybe...just maybe. Have to see how things play out with the inlaws.
Any objection to 3 labs tagging along? They are good at breaking trail!

I like dogs. But they must be better than the Golden that we had- she didn't break trail but tried to climb on the back of my snowshoes!

I've been watching this thread with hopes I could somehow make it work out but the start time just doesn't work for me as other obligations interfere. Nobody wants to make this a night hike????

Sorry Pete, but I'll have to drop out if thats the case. That would make it real interesting though.

My find rate per hour drops down significantly and my dnf rate increases when it gets dark so I'd have to bow out too... too much of a numbers guy :>

We're starting in at 10:30AM- but nobody said we'd be out before dark. Shocked
