Big Cat logged Chimney Rock and Pointy Knob yesterday and then did Thunder today :hail: I'm not sure I could pull that off.

I drove past a couple of those this weekend.

I don't think I could do more than one of them a month!

Although I have never met him, my understanding is that Big Cat has very impressive caching abilities. He sounds like someone 89SC should meet! :grin:

:lol: I got an email from him and he actually bushwacked to the top from the Flatrock Run waterfall :yeah: I never considered that. It would be shorter that way and it brings you in on the side that's clear of killer spruce.

Cat and dogs living together. Mass hysteria. :eek:

Would that be the killer Christmas trees of doom I have heard about? If Big Cat likes to bushwhack, maybe he and SSPG should meet! :grin:

Yeah, the killer Christmas Trees of Doom. Big Cat seems to have a knack for avoiding them. He says he didn't hit them at Chimney or Pointy either.

So he has a talent for avoiding the difficult areas? Now that is impressive! :grin:

Met him in Charleston at a FM event- then at Parkersburg at HIS FM event - cool dude. He's the kind you like to run into on the hunt. We wound up doing a couple of caches in Charleston with he and his (I believe) granddaughter. He's also put out several in the Parkersburg area - some real easy, some more challenging. Not Coalcat challenging, but fun (check Mountwood Park). We need to drag him over to Coopers next summer.

I really enjoyed the Mountwood caches. That's a cool place.

Definitely a day trip destination for our northern bretheren who may not have discovered it as yet....very nice day of caching there. Then they can go to Harbor Freight. Oh, wait - wrong thread!

Of the most ubiquitous logged names I"ve seen in caches across the state, Bigcat is up there near the top. I always have the vision he's the same dude as the Big Cat at the Mountaineer games with the apron :eek:

Sounds like a plan to me!

Although I have never met BigCat, we have emailed a few times. Seems like a nice guy. Is he actually big? If so, wvangler might need to change his sig line. :eek:
