If it looks nasty, I'm just going to let the guy with the red shirt go in first.

Do we need special footwear to get to Star Trek's GZ?
If we get more rain chest waders. If it gets cold Ice and yak tracks. If dry check with Rusty Nails or watch someone else get the cache from the hill


Scotty is tuning up the transporter and will beam us to Star Trek. If you have concerns about getting wet bring your hip waders if your tall. If short then chest waders Wink .

If you need more info. email me. Thanks

Confused My rubber calf high rain boots won't work?

Famous Daves you say, Barb said she is in, so we both are going to be there. I will bring two pair of waders from my duck hunting days. Barb is getting her wet suit out just in case of deep water. Maybe large snow shoes would work in the swamp? Shocked

One of us has already used his chest waders this month in retrieval of a cache. I sure hope I can convince him to take time for the fun. I'll post later whether we can make it.

Are those first 2 unpublished?

I plan on attending.

I might take a shot at pre-caching the loop around Nomandale lake park starting with

Fowl Play

I want to do some precaching also, but I have those already. Sad

I think I am going to start with Bloomington Civic Center #3-Begin Here

Between 5-5:30 depending on work & traffic.

I believe I will be there. I have the week off and if the fish aren't biting I will be there.
Hey Westside and Reddevil35, I may be up for precaching. I will know by 2pm shoot me an email..

As far as footwear goes. When I was there, I had Rain/muck boots that are Just below the knees ( I am Under- tall).

You will get wet.

This would be a good spot to wear your old tennie's and than change socks and shoes afterwards, if you don't have boots.

On average the water depth back than was 6 inches if you sunk in at all.

I plan on attending, maybe with my kids. I was looking at Star Trek and saw it was disabled. Will it be up for us at 7:30?

Yes it will be up. Just a little more work on the cloaking device.
