I'm interested in joining, since this one has been on my list forever.

However, I'm having two wisdom teeth removed on Thursday.
Hopefully I will be functional enough come Saturday evening.

I've never done a night cache, so I might be interested in joining... do you think snowshoes would be required for this terrain?

The trails in there are pretty hard packed now due to the recent freeze/thaw cycles we've had.

I was off-trail in there a few weeks ago without snowshoes (after the first melt) and didn't really have any problems as I was wearing gaiters to keep snow out of my boots. 

Unless we get a fair amount of snow this week, I wasn't planning on wearing my snowshoes for this one.

One or more of the Aleutian Islanders will be there.  We haven't done a night cache for a while, so it should be a lot of fun.

While there, we are also hoping to be able to claim a find for Three's Company (http://coord.info/GC177P9).  yukonshawn will be part of the company, so we are looking for a geocacher with under 100 finds to complete the team.  If anyone is interested in joining us, either post here or drop me a line directly.

Looks like snowshoes might be needed after all; 15 cm are coming tonight / tomorrow! http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/story/2013/02/07/ottawa-snow-coming-friday.html

I don't have snowshoes so I will probably sit this one out if there's lots of snow.  Plus I am also lacking transportation this weekend!  :P

Maybe we can schedule another time to do it for all those who can't make it this weekend :)

I can share driving and I am passing everyone on the way to the cache since I am in the east end.  I don't have extra snowshoes, however you can rent them at Mountain Equipment Co-Op (or other places like that)

msg me if you're looking for a ride to this organized cache hunt.

Looks like we should have a good turnout; if I counted correctly, somewhere between 10 and 14.

It'll be just over a kilometre from the parking lot to the posted coordinates.

I have spare snowshoes (x2) if anyone needs to borrow a pair.

Email me for pickup details.

Thanks graciious, I'll let you know by tomorrow if I need a lift.  Depends on the weather and whether I can get my hands on some snowshoes if necessary.

I'll be there too, can give anyone near the Champlain bridge (or on the way) a lift to and fro.  Sorry, only one pair of snow shoes....

Hmmm... I live at the Ontario end of the bridge.  I'm going out first thing tomorrow to grab some snowshoes from Trailhead so I'll PM you if I'm successful in getting some.

Argg!   I missed this until now!   Most of the group I usually cache with on Friday nights has already found this one, so I seem to never get to it.  One of these days (errr, nights...). If I had just spotted this earlier I would have definitely joined the group.   

That'll teach me to check in on the forums more often.
