I know someone posted somewhere here the other day about the black bear and cub roaming around West Salem. Our brother/sister-in-law, 'Birdin' and Trekkin' live there and they have heard about the bear being seen a few blocks from their house but have not heard anymore this past week. Has anyone heard more about it?

Laughing
Ratz and company live a couple of miles outside of West Salem.

Maybe we should have a gathering?

We'd be up for something like that, too. Any ideas? We don't have anything fancy here, but as long as people can tolerate dog hair and cat hair and some dust, we could host a warm-up party before or after. We're easy to find.

BTW, about a week ago, before it got so nasty cold, I *think* our dog may have been onto some bear tracks down along Neshonoc County Park. She was really skittish, but because of the blowing snow, it was hard to see a good print to be sure what it was.

Whatever it was, it wasn't as big as the reports in the news made it sound.
We tried to take that walk again today, but it's too darn cold with the wind yet! Mad

We have plenty of caches in the area to find, but have yet to look for anything east of West Salem (unless you count some in the Oshkosh/Omro area!)

I don't really know the Lacrosse/Onalaska area that well, outside of places where I've cached. I've attended Events in Rochester and I've met some of the nicest people. I think it'd be nice to get together and put some names with faces. Maybe on a Saturday evening pretty soon. I'll set up the caching page and everything. Just let me know where the most cacher friendly place would be to meet.

p.s. Where does one have to park to access 'The Island' cache over by West Salem?

If you come into West Salem, it can be a little tricky to find the road in if you don't know the area. I'll try to give some directions and hope they make sense.

If you come into town on I-90, drive all the way down the road that exits off the I toward the north. This is county road C, and will pass the library and arrive at a stop sign. Wave at our house as you sit at the stop sign to get your bearings! We're right on the corner, yellow with blue shutters.

Anyway, go straight another block until the road ends. Turn left there, go one more block and turn right. This is Mark Street and will take you through the school campus area. Go past the schools. You'll continue about two more blocks to an intersection called Tilson Street. Turn right at the corner. It will look like you're driving off into nowhere, but that takes you to the south shore of Lake Neshonoc. You follow that until you come to a parking area near the dock.

These directions will also get you to the location for Neshonoc Battleship and the Neshonoc Kids Cache. If by chance you come through and see someone walking a brown and white pit bull, that would be us. She loves people but not other dogs. We "inherited" her from our so-called adult son, and when the weather's a bit better, we love to walk down there with her.

I'm also trying to locate where the Great Horned Owls that hang out down there are nesting, so if anyone sees anything, pass it along!
