Did a couple of the new Harry Potter series over in Manitowoc last month and enjoyed them. Today we did 13 more of them and had a blast! These are fun, challenging and just a fabulous variety of different terrains and difficulties. A very well put together series and I would definitely recommend this series, especially for those who are looking for more than the park and grab ones. You will come away with stories to tell!

Oh yes, stories to tell is right! lol Several members of the Krew and myself have done most of the series. The ones located in the Camp Vits area... that's where the stories come from! There are 13 caches in that area alone, and it will take a couple hours to get them all. It is an excellent series filled with much variety. In case anyone is interested in looking at the series, I have included the CO's bookmark page: Harry Potter Series - Manitowoc.

Stories...let me tell you...do we have stories....at one point, I tried to jump over the stream (thinking I was superwoman) and the next thing I know I was laying flat on the ground, my entire front side covered with mud! Did we laugh...I couple of slides down some hills....the 13 in the Camp Vits area are a BLAST! But do take water...do NOT leave it in the car.

We left ours in the car too but were able to just look up and open our mouths for water....lol. My son also almost took a digger in the mud, but caught himself (there is alot to be said for the benefits of youth!!) Since we hit it right after the social (in the rain) and didn't hear the directions very well we actually parked down a gravel road out towards Kreacher and walked the fenceline in... so we did the whole camp Vits set backwards... any one who goes should bring towels and a change of clothes and shoes...lol, and a walking stick, you definately need a walking stick... wings or something to help you fly would also be very beneficial...lol, and someone who can be your billy goat!!!
We got our very first FTF's at Camp Vits... my son decided during that trip that he definately loves the higher challenge terrains!!!!

I was with Lacknothing on the trip to Camp Vits. This week we found the caches near the lighthouse. I didn't think it was possible to have more fun than I had at Camp Vits but I did. I didn't even care that I searched for a disabled cache for 20 minutes before realizing it wasn't there.

Can somebody tell me if these are winter-friendly? And I'm talking about in a few weeks when we have even more snow. Thanks!

We found about half of them, and of those, most of them were not winter friendly. The letterbox was the most winter-friendly. Very Happy

I haven't looked at all the listings to see if an attribute is on there, but I'm guessing it is not, or you probably wouldn't need to ask the question. So you might check with the cache owners to see what they'd recommend.
