Justin and I are going to Peninsula State Park next Saturday, (the 28th) and plan to hike out to Horseshoe Island. To find a cache, and (perhaps) hide a new cache. And probably some mainland caches as well.

Horseshoe Island is about half a mile offshore from the mainland, so it's not a super long hike, but not super short, either.

I plan on having snowshoes along, in case snow is deep.

If interested in joining us, respond here.

The new snow should be done by Saturday, so this is still a go. I am planning on having snowshoes along. More details on meeting time/place tomorrow or Fri. eve.

Well, the more, the merrier, keeping two things in mind: We'll be in Peninsula State Park, and any vehicles we bring will need a park sticker. I'm offering transportation with my van, but understand if we want to caravan in more than one vehicle.

TheHorseshoe Island trek will be the priority, and then any other caches in that people want to attempt can be attempted afterwards.

We're getting more snow, so I'm planning on bringing snowshoes. I have no idea how deep the snow will be, but snowboots, at a minimum, are recommended.

Sorry you can't make it, Ryan, maybe next time.

However, a small group is still going, so if any lurkers wish to join us, better post before 9:00 AM Sat. morning. We will arrive sometime between 10:30 and 11:00 at Peninsula State Park, perhaps meeting at main office, or at nature center.

Island hopping, a few other (hopefully) winter-friendly caches, and a burger somewhere...

No prob... too bad we didn't look for the SECOND cache on the island. I suppose you should go back and look for it...
