    Default Anyone getting out?

    Is anybody actually geting out there and caching in this weather?

    Have thought about it, but decided against the idea!

    Waiting for the weather to improve. Last time we found a cache in the snow the next finder remarked that we hadn't covered our tracks. We did visit some extra boulders to stop it being too obvious but what were we supposed to do - run madly all over the hillside :wacko:?

    Planning an early outing tomorrow, first caching for some weeks due to achilles problems...

    We'd planned a walk in the Lakes today taking in a few caches (naturally). We've had snow for a full week now, so planned our route starting from a main road (A66). Unfortunately it put down another 4" last night and we could hardly get out of our village safely Not happy at all! Mrs BigLad even mentioned the dreaded words "you could always paint the bathroom" - great! Maybe tomorrow - caching not painting that is !

    For me it seems like I found the addiction of Geocaching at the wrong time of the year. I have been on 11 finds for a month now. Mainly due to the weather but due to other things going on as well.

    I am hoping the weather eases up a little.

    Slogging through the snow can make it a bit easier - tracks led straight to log pile in Westonbirt Arboretum today !!

    A few years ago I was FTF on a cache, it was one of those where when you're approaching there are a number of likely spots and it just happened that I chose the right one first time. As I retraced my steps back to the path I realised that I'd left a very obvious cachers trail, so just for grins I made a false trail to every other tree in the GZ

    We did the same last year, so walked past and back and all around even kicked snow away from near rocks and gate posts. All to no benefit as the sensible cachers all waited for the snow to melt.

    This time last year I never stayed in the house and went out in the worst weather!
    I would almost cry with the pain of frozen fingers while trying to sign a log.
    (I was on a newbie high and there was no stopping me!)

    This year is soooo diferent.
    I look out the window (on my few days off) from the warmth of my bed, um and arrrr for about 2 seconds, then snuggle deeper under the quilt and plan my Summer routes.

    But looking back i had so much fun out there in the rain, hail, wind and snow.

    i blame it on hitting that 1000th find milestone ... since then it has all gone down hill.:wacko:

    I'm on a caching streak and want my streak to be longer than my longest drought. 85 days vs 127 days so far and obviously going out in all weathers.

    When it has been particularly awful and I've not wanted to travel far, I have had a go at my nearest unsolved puzzles and have had some success

    The most extreme day of caching so far was Heffalump007's Pen Y Fan event
    Enjoy the photos - just looking at them will probably make you feel CCCCCCCCOLD! h34r:

    Crikey, just read the logs and seen the pictures. Very pleased I didn't try that one! You must all be very brave - or completely bonkers - to go for that walk in this weather.

    This time last year I was still mopping up local ones, as I'd only been "at it" 4 months, the weather wasn't as bad, and it was relatively easy to find an hour or two here and there to grab whatever I was near.

    Not so easy now I've done most of the local ones, and the weather is an added turn off.

    Think I'll hibernate till spring.

    Ahhh a fellow streaker h34r: same here but I have just been doing short ones, bar a couple of park types in Telford over the last few days as they have virtually no snow down there.

    My first time in nearly 3 weeks, I was 25 minutes behind Jacaru for a third to find the same cache, absolutely brilliant to be out and about.
