Weather as of Tuesday, April 26 for Sunday, May 1, will be partly cloudy low of 37° and hi of 61°.

List of suggested items to bring/wear –
I am sure this stuff is obvious, but better safe than sorry I always say!

Wear long sleeved shirt and jeans or other heavy pants

Comfortable hiking boot – remember, this is a 6 mile hike!!

Backpack
Extra clothing/shoes
Heavier work glove
Protective eyewear
GPS – that’s a given LOL
Compass
Topomap of area

First aid kit (insurance car/ list of meds -always good to have, just incase)

Flashlite/headlamp – bigger than a mini-Mag is preferred

Walking Stick (Da Fu has a total of 4 to bring)

2-way radios (the more the merrier) / cell phones

Water/ sports drinks to carry with/for after
Snack foods etc, for trek in and after.

If you can think of anything else... bring it. Don't want to pack too heavy!

Meeting Time/PLace

I would say lets try to get at a meeting spot by 0930 with first group going out at 1000. I will look into a meeting place/coords today or tomorrow.

I'll be leaving from the Waukesha area around 7AM on Sunday. I have room for (2) people if anyone would like to car pool.

After canceling a motorcycle trip to Duluth this past weekend because of the cold weather, I'm having second thoughts about making this weekend a motorcycle camping weekend. So Digital_Dan, do you have any room for me in your vehicle? Or alternatively, I could pick up/take anyone else interested in going from the Milwaukee area. I definitely don't have a problem with driving there by myself... I just don't want to have an unreasonable number of vehicles out there.

Sounds like we are going to meet at the trailhead at 9:30am on Sunday? There appears to be a parking area and boat landing/canoe launch (?) very near the site of the first cache. It is at the end of Norway Drive at coordinates N43 34.998 W89 43.623. Fu, can you communicate this information to Lil Otter to see if she wants to meet us there...

As far as equipment, from the logs it seems like some sort of waders/high boots could be useful. I plan to bring both hiking boots and waders, as scrambling up rocks in waders is probably not a good idea.

Also, it would be nice if people could wait (please Image) to start the cache hunt until everyone gets there (with the first group going out at 10am as Fu suggested)...

I sent out official e-mails to those who have contacted me that way, with driving issues, cell #'s etc.

Since we don't know how long this will take...not sure what ppl want to do about a meal. Taking suggestions!!!

The route I noticed from the south was I90 to Portage, just before Portage I39 comes in at the split off, take I39 North . Once up near Portage, off I39 take hwy 16 towards the Dells. Look for CO. "O", make left on Co. "O" or Peterson Rd, then take a right on Ingebretson Road, follow that and straight and it will turn into Fox Run Rd, then Norway Rd.

That's the best I can come up with form down the MIlwaukee way.

From the NOrth, we'll have to pick up 151 out of Fond du Lac then once thru Waupaun, pick up Hwy 33 then follow the same directions once we get to I39.

Actually from the North, we can pick up Hwy 16 on the east side or Portage then take it over and not even have to get on I39
