There was literally a blizzard warning, with talk of 7 to 12 inches of snow. But, there were four new caches published in 5 Ridges State Preserve. Since December there have been 16 new caches published out there. We found the two that were there previous to that last spring. On that trip we were also introduced to the morel mushroom! Anyway, bumanfam Dad and bumanfam Dog were the only ones brave enough for the trek. The warnings were to officially begin at 6:00 pm, so we headed out around noon. We documented the trip at EveryTrail.com. Here is that trip.
The blizzard, by the way? Well, we only got about a half-inch of snow on the ground as it was just too warm for the falling snow to stick. It was plenty windy, wet, and cold, though! We had four FTFs for the day, and three other caches as well. There are still nine out there we haven't yet found. We'll be back during morel season!
