Unless something squirrely happens between now and Saturday I'm planning on taking the Jeep down and going after these caches Saturday (I have to come home ASAP Sunday morning). I know pbump was quite interested in participating in the opportunity to make poor choices.

How long will it take to get all three?

Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code.

We managed to get #1 Briarwood yesterday after sMAGPI. We ran out of time to hit the others. so obviously with a little planning we'll be back to take them on.

here is our route and I'll put the .gpx file in the appropriate place here on MAGPI.

After some discussion with some local boys and Hillbilly Gritz, we (allysmom24, nuggie99, ally, wvmikiepar) drove to Rt 60 Connector Series #2 and #3. Used Little Nine Mile Creek (N 38 18.356 W 081 25.307) to acccess the ridge where the caches are located. For the fellow cachers who ventured to Rt 60 Connecor Series #1 after the sMAGPI Meet and Greet - this drive to these two caches much easier. I would estimate about two hours roundtrip for these caches. Had to cross a creek several times than drive up creek for approx 1/4 to 1/2 mile before heading up hill to the ridges. The roads on the ridge were great - the drive from #2 to #3 had some trees/braches cut on edge of road but was able to maneuver aroud them with no problem. Drove within 300' of #2 and 500' of #3. We saw no one else on our drive to the caches.

Would happen to have a tracklog you'd be willing to share, would you?

Also, a bobcat? Squeeeeeee! (I'm assuming you mean the animal, not the piece of construction equipment, otherwise I withdraw my Squeeeee.)

Yes, a track log would be really nice to have.

"Squeeeeeee"? I admit that I usually have to consult a dictionary any time I see a big word I don't know (which is about 78% of the time), but I haven't been able to find this one. I even tried to leave an "e" or two off, but that didn't help. Guess I need a newer dictionary.

  • I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make when they go flying by.

squee - adjective - extremely adorable.

You may imagine it as that high pitched tone I use when I see one of my namesakes and must announce "SPOTTED PONY!" to no one in particular. THAT is squee being verbalized.

Still don't see it in my dictionary.

I'll stick to my dictionary of "real" words.

One could argue that since English is a living language any word that makes it into popular usage for a sustained period is a real word.

Bumping this thread since Aquacache and I have been discussing going after these caches. Now to dig up my track log from the one I actually did.
