Comkelp (Jeff) is offering a pontoon ride to the 3 caches on Lake Holcombe the Friday evening prior to the WGA Picnic. We would be meeting near GC30BQD and board the pontoon.

The 3 caches are:

GCZT4P
GC1Y3W8
GC1543X

If interested post here, to let Comkelp know. This is a small pontoon, limited to the first 10 people. Should be a fun trip on beautiful Lake Holcombe and a great way to start off the festivities for the WGA Picnic.

Lake Holcombe cache took a bit to find when I was out there, but after a search we came up with. Nice to see people finding it after we dusted it off.
Lake Holcombe is a great area, if it was just a tad closer I'd have one up there hidden.

Put us down for 2 if the walking is not too far on the islands, otherwise just 1 for me.

Bummer, I'd love to do that but I doubt that I'll be able to make it up there in time. But I've had my eye on those island caches since last summer. Have fun!

Depending when we get up that way and if I can convince Mrs Hippie to let me out to play I'd join up. We'll see.

Even if Val stays on the pontoon, she will enjoy the view. Lake Holcombe is an absolutely beautiful lake to take a little boat ride on. Come on and join the crew, it ought to be fun.

Those caches are not that bad of a hike to them. The worst will be all the underbrush at several of the islands.

I'm thinking we should plan on boarding 6:00pm, weather permitting. Plan on about 1.5-2 hr. I have 20 caches planted around the lake (3 very near my cottage - boarding site) besides the three islands.(these 3 not mine) Here's easy directions: Cache site GC30BQD is on 259th St . My address is: 27179 259th (It's on a dead-end, so easy finding) Please e-mail me @ comkelp@hotmail.com or call: 715-559-9987 if any questions. I COULD entertain a Sunday morning run also if enough interested.......say 8am ???

I just had 2 island caches published, GC33Z94 & GC33Z8K. So........If there's time, we can figure on picking up to five island caches. As Zuma put it, What a great way to kick off the WGA 2011 Fall Picnic weekend!

I so wanted to place one out by the 27 bridge on the island just west of it by the point when I was up there this pass July. I decided that I was a bit far to maintain it, nice to see more for me to go after this next summer!
