Punxsutawney Phil predicts an early spring. Spring happens to be my favorite time to cache. That makes me wonder what other peoples favorite time of year to cache is and why.

In Spring, my favorite time to cache is Fall.
In Summer, my favorite time to cache is Winter.
In Fall, my favorite time to cache is Spring.
In Winter, my favorite time to cache is Spring.

So I guess Spring wins. Summer definitely loses. Laughing

Fall. No bugs. Usually dry. Little undergrowth. Each day precious because Winter is Coming. Thanksgiving vacation.

Fall - Few bugs, few ticks, foliage is gone. Leaves all over the ground...okay, it can't all be good. Poison ivy leaves - gone. Work done mid-October, water levels down - that can be important! Still many warm days. Fall is my best followed by spring. Stats back that up.

FALL. Cool enough and dry enough and the leaves look good.

Fall, definitely.
Of course, that is when it is the hardest for me to get time off work.
Go figure.

Whenever the wife lets me off the leash. I'd like to say fall is best but if you look at my numbers, I am more active in winter and spring.

Fall for us as well. When the leaves change color, you cannot ask for a better reason to get out and enjoy what mother nature creates. Mile high blue skies against so many colors, priceless.

Spring/Fall- Temperatures, no bugs.
Summer- Good to be outdoors.
Winter- Tougher hikes, tougher finds.

Anyone up for a road trip to Punxsutawney Pennsylvania for a little "chat" with a Ground Hog?

It is spring in Pennsylvania.

Andover Arnold is the ground hog I want to skin alive. He hasn't even shown up for ground hog day yet. [Sad]

He hasn't shown up because Spring is never going to show up. We're going to go straight from Winter to Summer.
