Do you have all your winter gear ready?

I got out my snow boots this morning (which was overkill) and they still had burrs on them Wink

Now if only I could find my favorite hat.

every year I laugh when I get out my snow boots at how muddy they are.

I have new snow trax and wore them this morning over my tennis shoes. They kept slipping off. I guess too big for shoes. I got new gators and snow shoes this year thanks to Costco, but that really is over kill. I haven't used them yet.

So that is why we don't have any significant snow yet, someone is prepared!

Threw the snowshoes into the truck a week ago.

"There's no such thing as bad weather. Just bad gear."

As someone who is trying to complete that 365-day streak challenge, I'm hopeful we don't get buried in snow too soon. If we could make it another month without significant snow, that would help a ton.

Well haven't really gotten my winter stuff out yet. I guess it will mean having to put on a long sleeve shirt this year. Very Happy

Well, I am not going for a 365, but I am going for a December blackout and apparently I only cached 4 days last December so I have a lot of days to cache. So hopefully between good equipment and some winter friendly park and grabs I came make it.

Working on my 366, tons of holes in Dec, went out to fill one today and holy buckets!! It is time to break out the REAL gear! And ask Santa for some really warm mittens.

I know how you feel, I am helping Talasay's in his quest to go for 365 days without logging a find. It's nice warm work but somebody has to do it.

Interestingly, all of the holes in my calendar are in the summer months.

July and August were the worst for me also.
