One of the easiest ways to keep away the predators is to sing.

I might be interested depending on the departure time and if I can ride with someone. I have a extra pair of snowshoes and poles that are rated for 200lbs max.

I am in Green County, which is south of Dane. I can drive out to the Milwaukee area.

Well Wayne, since you are the farthest away, depending on your route, its about 4.5 hrs from Albany to Hiles taking 39/51

its 6 hrs if you go thru milwaukee and up 43

I would like to start the hike about 10 am 11 at the latest.

thinking it will take about 3 hrs round trip.

Anyone have any time constraints?

Mapquest says it is almost 5 hours to get to Hiles. Darn! Sad

I am thinking about it.

What is the distance for both of these. It look like you walk by Math2k to get to Eagle Source. Is that correct?

I would assume that Math2k is found on the way in or out, but is found along the way. its about a 1.5 hour walk each way

You pretty much know my constraints...home by dark so I don't turn into a pumpkin...or maybe I can catch a ride with someone. Kat and Don???

I'm thinking of joining you on this hike - Depending on the weather.
I used to think that a two and a half hour drive was too far to go but after chasing Lonelys for a couple of years it's become normal.
I have an extra pair of snowshoes if needed.

Bartrod - Don says if weather is good and I'm feeling well enough, we can pick you up. We'll figure out details this week.

Sweetlife - how long will it take to get to the cache site from Mountain? It's about an hour twenty to get to Mountain from GB....

Still working on getting snowshoes...worse comes to worse, we hike it.

Wife wants me to help here get her stuff to Amherst Junction for a dog show concession stand. Depending on what time the hike starts, I should be able to make it. Should be able to leave Amherst Jct by about 7:30
