200 Finds for the Geocats

New Year's Day 2008. . .
And man was it c-c-c-cold out there! A high of 8 degrees today and it was 6 degrees when we were caching. Our 200th find was right on the shores of Lake Minnetonka, and the north wind coming across that frozen lake cut right through us. Luckily, wayfarer had her Spidey sense working and made it a quick find. Yeah, it's the smiley right there on the northwest shore - fully exposed to the wind! The only problem with this picture is it shows the water as blue. Wrong! The water was white. Ice cold white.

We had just gotten two other winter accessible caches nearby. Winter accessible my cold fanny! One of them required digging a foot of snow out from under a fallen tree trunk.

New rule... If the cache container is sitting on the ground under a foot of snow, it is not winter accessible. But it was a find, and we were glad to have it.

Now, I just have to thaw my snowballs out.
