Sorry, Rusty, but this beats last weeks by a LONG shot. Thanks to RedDevil and Sparkyfry for making this night possible.

Had a great time today for WNC. Yep it was wet and rainy but that didn't stop us. I think only Pippen and Mary, and Red Devil where the only ones totally prepaired for it. I Put some of Butchers advise to use today too... I fell... He said that it's never good to try and stop yourself from falling because you just end up getting something twisted of sprained. Its just better to flat and land softly. Had a fun time anyways.

Another wet, yet fun evening. Lots of bushwacking, but on the positive side, not ticks!

Thanks to Red_Devil for bringing us together for a great WNC. I decided this compared equally to our very first WNC in Mpls where we were pre-caching in a thunderstorm. I got soaked tonight as well - all the way through. We walked into a swamp several times looking for a way in with water that didn't go over our ankles and eventually walked all the way around the swamp. We were about to give up when Pippin struck off one more time and the rest of us followed and we managed to get to the cache. I would have been more prepared, but when I left for precaching it wasn't raining yet. And the forecast I saw indicated the rain would hold off.

I can't remember being so cold walking from the bar to my car at the end of the night. Never thought heat on high in the car and heated seats would be so welcome at the end of June!

A fun night with good friends.

Thanks for going after my caches! I knew the terrain wasn't easy, but I had no idea it would be *that much* of an adventure. Nice seeing familiar and unfamiliar faces at JJ's afterwards!

I'm not dissappointed. That ranks at number 2 for best cache runs- and I've done a lot (this may be considered incorrect) of cache runs!
