Geocaching adventures in the Great Lakes. I can't think of a more glorious way to spend a day then to put on my red Wellies and my yellow rain slicker, toss my pack on my back, slip a camera in my pocket, and head off to parts unknown. Unless, of course, you add some family and friends to the mix! That's even better.

5/5 LPC's and Winter-Friendly Attributes
I listen to many geocaching podcast shows include Podcacher. As much as I learn and enjoy that podcast, I do get a little touchy with Sonny's issue about LPCs. I've seen some remarkable ones (PaRaDiZ has a nice Christmas vignette in one). I've also hugged a few during my 2-year Cache-a-day streak. This winter has been particularly brutal! Wind chills of -26 degrees F! Even the lamp post caches have been rather challenging!
Here are a few LPCs plus some other challenging finds from just the last couple of weeks! And it's been a LONG Winter! All of these were deemed "park and grabs!
Luckily, TaGeez is always a good sport!
Just a side note about Attributes. I admit that I generally don't look at them except when I'm "streaking in Winter". All the above caches had "Available During Winter" attributes listed on them. I think, during snowy Winters like this one that cache owners need to really re-evaluate this attribute on a cache-by-cache basis. Change them if it no longer applies. And, in many cases, just use them! We've added a lot of unnecessary miles to the cachemobile when there were no attributes on a cache only to discover it was definitely NOT Winter friendly.
