I thought you couldn't log on to them if they are disabled- guess I was wrong.

Yup, you can log them even after they've been archived.

I was meaning to ask you if you had a specific reason for disabling all your caches for the winter. Is it because of dangerous conditions or because of issues related to deep snow?

I think disabling is more for warning potential seekers that the cache may not be there, or may be inaccessible for some reason. Some will still look and find anyway.

Ecspecially if you leave them as visable caches. Just ask KB about finding archived caches. [Smile]

Reasons are both dangerous and deep snow and pulled for winter maintenance. If you read in my warnings many can be ankle twisters in good weather- but with wet weather the trails are treacherous with pine needles and wet leaves on very uneven ground- especially my last one which is no more than an animal trail for 3 miles.

This one isn't for the weak-knee'd- Seriously I had to go to PT when I got back from setting this one and have my knees worked on. From now on when I do this one I wear a knee brace- but it is a circular route if you want to make it that with some beautiful views- and at the peak of the trail is a rock climbing area- so chances are you will see some climbers on the rocks. It is also a multi-cache. A challenge for sure. I will set the containers out in the spring when the route is clear of snow and ice and somewhat dry in the low areas. Also, I have left containers out before and have had them broken off being that they were stuck in the ice- so I find it easier just to pull them.
