COG - Winter Hike Saturday Feb 19th
« on: February 01, 2011, 15:54:34 »
  Our friends with COG are planning a winter hike. approx 12kms  Snow shoes likely required, but they may have packed trails.  You can read up on the hike here... http://www.centralontariogeocachers.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1810.

  I am interested in going, any other takers?  It's a 4 hour drive so we would be leaving Ottawa for sometime close to 3am... to get there and enjoy the festivities.  I am thinking of attending but would love to have some company in the car. PM me if interested.

3AM start?  You are managing to make the Geomob look sane and civilized, and that is quite a feat  :o

Nope, feeling really lazy this winter, I'm sticking to short hikes to caches (and long bike rides in my warm basement)  :P

My alternative is going to be drive up the night before and find a place to stay.

I read the forum thread that graciious linked to and I'm not sure where that hike is going and when! Lots of cross talk...

Is it Deroche Lake? Or Lingham? Is it the 12th or the 19th?

Deroche lake was last weekend,  There is a hike this weekend, and then a third hike on the 19th.  I would like to go for the 19th when they attempt a first to find on http://coord.info/GC2K377 Another cacher has placed 3 caches on the route that will be published close to the hike date so as a group we can possibly get all 4 first to finds.

Don't know if anyone else is interested, I am going to book a room at the Colonial Inn Motel - (613) 473-2221 - Madoc, ON K0K 2K0 for Feb 18th. Drive up after work and the hike is Feb 19th at 9:30am (start time was modified). Then I will return to Ottawa on the 19th. I expect to be home approx 9pm as the hike is scheduled to "be returning to our vehicles by 4pm" but one never knows what will happen.

email me or send a pm if you wanna join me.

Ok.. Last call.

I have changed plans again due to the changes in weather, It does not appear that we are expecting snow on the 18th so I will be driving down on the morning of the 19th.  Leaving Ottawa at 5:00am to hike at 9:30am. 

If you want to join me PM or Email me.  geocacher (@) rogers (.)com  I am travelling down highway 7 and plan on making a stop for breakfast at starbucks. (yum!)

Donations for gas money would be appreciated.
