Just finished up two SL puzzles! Might get to them on Tuesday. Depends on weather.

After 5-8" of new craphas... Confused

No? I need to check of they are winter friendly even. But even if they aren't and they go on the pile to find in the future, I had fun!

The commentators for this Sweden-Russia curling match aren't even in Sochi. They're still in the US.

Which ones, and I'll let you know, LN... We try to put micros up higher, but larger containers could be in logs or by bases of trees. No really long hikes, even in snow. Might have to park roadside, but nothing on really busy roads.

If you're coming all this way for a couple of puzzles, OK, but if you want to find more, I can't vouch for what is findable out there. I do know that our "G is for Geo" and "C is for Cache" signpost hides in NE Adams County are under tons of snow.

Do any of geolivestrong's WARCS hides (Wautoma, Coloma, Wild Rose). He put them out just in the last few weeks, and while some require going through snow banks, the hides are basically winter-friendly. We haven't done any of his longer hikes in the series, though, but if you use snowshoes, they might not be bad. That new series has made January and February caching fun for us this year.

Just gave a father and his son from Chicago a tour of the Kingdom.

Our target cache is GC3MXKZ, 1 5/5 that Hearty Soles needs for her D/T grid.

However, I have solved GC2MJT4 and GC3QGDY.

Hey, LN! Grab my TB if it's still in there! If it's not in there, let me know.

Thanks! Smile

We got ourselves a great snowshoe workout today. Feels good to get out and not freeze one's fingers and nose for a change.

I would advise not going for that 5/5 in the winter, LN. It's at the creek end and may not have hard water. If HS wants to do that in the spring, we can loan you our canoe for it or take her out there.

As for the two puzzles, no problem with the snow, but if the sudoku one is under some, it's at a geobeacon. No need for the snowshoes.

Really....it's been so stinking cold, I just can't understand how any water could not be frozen. Stink!

Running water. Warmer temps and new snow. Wouldn't trust it. Long hike, too, since all the land on both sides there is private property. Never been there in the winter to know for sure, though.

A farther but safer alternative for you if you really need the 5/5 now would be GC2DHW0. No need to dig out the container, either. (It's more like a 1/5.) And you can have your own mini sea caves experience there without as much of a hike as on Lake Superior. Take Highway 82 west off of I-39, go through Oxford, cross 13, cross the river, go north on HH to the county park (closed in the winter... might not be plowed).

Then come back through Adams to find your puzzles and a whole lot more, if you want. The signpost P&Gs might be hiding deeper by then, though.

We saw plenty of running water along Lowes Creek in Eau Claire today. We found ourselves the long way on the wrong side of it and even in places where it looked frozen.....we could hear the water gurgling just below it.

It's interesting that the Great Lakes are nearly frozen, yet these little streams still run. Guess that moving water does make a difference! Rolling Eyes
