Okay, we're thinking of heading up to Hayward/Barnes for the weekend tomorrow. How much rain and flooding have you guys had, and how much effect will that have had on the forest roads and such? TIA

I know our Black River Falls cache is now on its way to the Gulf of Mexico. If anyone spots a little matchstick with our name on it, grab it, okay? Rolling Eyes

Well, my dad said that we only got about 2.5 inches of rain up here. Some of the fire lanes "could" be a little soggy. If you guys make it into Hayward, please stop in a say hi. I work all weekend. 5am-2:30ish @ the Holiday Station Store on Hwy 63 North. Right next to Coop's Pizza. I think the weather forcast is to be pretty decent too. Fall Fest in Haywaed & Cable too! Any particular cache or series you are looking on hitting?

I've got about ten solves on varying puzzles, and we wanted to try and get the stuff we had to miss when we couldn't make it to Barnes. Hoping this still works out, between Trekkin' killing himself running with his cross country kids tonight and no return call from the dog sitter (aka son), we're kind of in limbo. But we'll be sure to stop in. I am hoping for nice weather to do your night cache up there tomorrow night if all works out.

Looks like we'll have to grab any available motel we can find. Figured the colors were filling the rooms there.

I really don't think a room will be a problem, but I could be wrong. AmericInn is were Sandlanders have stayed when Up North. When Mr. & Mrs TE were here a couple of years ago, they said that the Super 8 was not a good place to stay. The cheapest, but gives you the basic room is the Aspen Inn. Just south of town on Hwy 63 . I have another Nite cache (The Ghost Cache)that is in the same woods. I'll "try" to see if I can get it working and back out after work. If I can't get it yo work folow the cache page directions. I will be haning close and I"ll make sure it it will be visable at night. This is a trail that connects the two caches. If ya need anything else, please feel free to ask.

Thanks for the tips! That little grandson added a couple notches to his belt last night....Grandma and Grandpa!....so we're getting a little later start than we'd wanted. When he went home, we were beat, so I had to load the units and stuff this morning. Looking forward to fun up nort!

I preferred the AmericInn, too. I stayed there in the winter once and someones car horn kept blowing for 15-20 minutes at a time! Come to find out, IT WAS MINE!! The horn had shorted out and would blow for no reason. I drove down to the Holiday station at 3 AM and the nice attendant pulled the wires off. But my ears were ringing for a looooong time! Shocked

We went up to the water falls in Ashland County and they we really nice with all the rain and the tree colors. The Water Falls were really rushing. We started at Morgan Falls and St. Peters Dome and hit 3 caches. My favorite was Potato Falls with 2 caches. It was really roaring. Then ran up to the Michigan border to grab to 2 caches at Superior Falls and add a State.

In October I am planning on heading up and hitting Copper Falls, and a few less known like Wren Falls, Foster Falls, and Saxon Falls.
