We agree with Xira: Deliverance seems to be a 3h-long binthairian hike, and with what binthair usually throws at us, we would rather go on a day when weather is not adding extra stars to the terrain rating.

With all the rain that came down today and what is expected to come down on Friday/Saturday, I would expect the terrain to be very muddy and not fun at all, even if we are lucky enough to catch a few rays of sun while we are there.

At this point we cast our vote for moving the road trip to next week.

My vote is to postpone, there will be much better weekends weather wise before winter comes.  Besides, I can use the extra time this weekend to clean the mud out of the back of the van from the previous trip!

Fall is by far the best time to go for Deliverance. Keep in mind that hunting for small game has already started, and there will probably be an increase in hunters out and about when Ruffed Grouse starts this coming weekend.  ;D

Certainly get it before deer season opens the first week of November.  :o

If the majority are in favour of postponing this by one week, then I'm all for it.
Hopefully the weather co-operates better than it has during the last week.

Instead, this weekend could be dedicated toward finding new locations for GAG18 caches or digging up Buried Treasure.
Would anyone else like to unearth Buried Treasure?

I'm assuming YukonShawn means Hidden Treasure, which is GC4EDB (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC4edb. The best time to find that one is in the spring, with late fall being the next best. It has never found during the winter.

It has been found during September a few times. Patience and/or lots of eyes are great assets.

That's correct, I meant Hidden Treasure.
I've had the solution to this one since May, made my first unsuccessful go in mid-June, followed by another brief attempt on Labour Day weekend.

As Xira confirms, early-spring is the best time for this one.
It was last found on April 3, by Marvin Gardens.

There was even one year where it was found numerous times during July, surprisingly enough.

I'll be your huckleberry.

The following weekend looks to be great for the road trip (at the moment).

Muhahahaha, I wish you guys best of luck at Hidden Treasure.

Goodness knows I spent many hours sitting in that field.

I loved the puzzle, that has to be one of the coolest puzzle solutions I've ever seen. That's also how I discovered my younger brother spanks me at math. I showed him the puzzle expecting him to be as surprised as I was and he just said "Well, OK, let's assume r and theta and..." and he scribbled on a notepad and came up with the answer in about 30 seconds. Doh!

As for the search itself, it seems like some people get extremely lucky and find it within minutes. Maybe you'll be one of them!

Just don't bring along someone who has already found it to "help". Or if you do, wait about 10 minutes and then ask to look under their feet where they're standing ;)

Damn! Just realized I'll be out of town for the weekend of 28-30. Guess I'll have to miss out on the Deliverance road trip. :'(

If it's not too late, I'd like to get in on the hunt for Hidden Treasure too. When were you planning on going?

I should also be able to go next week for the Deliverance trip.

Looking at the weather forecast, Hidden Treasure would probably be best left for Sunday.

Agreed.
I'm thinking maybe early-afternoon on Sunday.
