So with the weather becoming nice for part of last week, the boys and I headed out to Badfish Creek Wildlife Area to do some caching and hiking. This is such a beautiful area and it seems to be somewhat overlooked by cachers. Well, I guess we'll have to see what we can do to change that.
I think that I ended up walking just over 5 miles while hunting down 4 caches scattered across the property. Interspersed on our journey, we hid 4 new caches as well. I have to admit that by the end of the day, I was sore and tired from lugging my pack along with the two boys. Uff!! Definitely worth the effort though as the kids enjoyed walking along the creek and then hunting through the brush to make the find on an ammo can.
I would highly recommend that anyone who is looking for a decent place to cache near Madison check it out. Of course, the weather was a prime factor in making that trip so enjoyable. I had to head out in the freezing rain today to replace one of the caches. Grabbed the geodogs and we trucked it about 2 miles to GZ and back to the geomobile. Not the worst weather to cache in, but there was quite a bit of standing water that we had to navigate on the way in. Of course we found a drier, easier way out but that's life. Of course the dogs loved it and have been crashed out on the couch ever since we got home.
