Surprisingly close - First word is correct.

I think you will like this area Steve. Feel free to bring some cache containers when you come. There's tons of room left.

You know that my grandfather owned that now-removed green house on the N side of the street in Mountain at 45.032601,-75.500636, and that I spent many summers there with my father. I know Mountain and the area like the back of my hand...  ;)

Maybe a trip tonight if they get published in time.

My wife tells the story of her father who was driving in Northen Ontario in a blizzard. The kids asked him to slow down, and he replied that he knew the road like the back of his hand. The word "hand" was barely out of his mouth when he drove them into the ditch.  ;D

On unrelated note, your "Oh Shoot" cache is now beside a nice memorial the The Battle of Hill 70. It was just recently re-dedicated to the memory of the men who fought there. The minister of Defence even attended.

A couple weeks or so I'd guess. I don't like frogs either, so it was a bit stressful. I almost rode right over a huge frog that did not move. Almost had a heart attack...

I drove in the road today, with my GMC halfton, to all the caches. Obvious parking spots when you need to go off the road for the cache. Drive no further than n45 05.793 w075 29.317, where you can park for the last cache up the trail. Lots of parking at the start of the old road for those with 2wheel drive cars.

Hmm, where have I heard this before? I remember the geomob visiting the K+P trail and my poor (and most definitely 2WD) Matrix trying to cope... we seemed to do OK though!
