Found out yesterday that in the winter,
it's faster to go down the hill then up. Very Happy

Greatfully so, nothing bad at all. Thanks for your concern.
Got startled by a snowmobile at the Lake Elmo Park.
Lost my footing on the packed snow and slid down the hill!
Oh well part of caching in winter. Smile

Nylon pants are great for winter caching, so you can just slide down the hill. Weeeeeee!

I'm glad to hear that you didn't get hurt. Winter caching has it's advantages and disadvantages. Days like today are great. How often does it get close to 40 degrees in January?

Just try not to get snow up inside the back of your coat. What goes up your coat, must come down...inside your pants.

I bet there was a lot of geocaching hooky played today - me included. You just can't waste a 40 degree day like that in winter.
