Ha! Made you look!



OK, seriously ... drove by the Unos, Dos, Tres, Catorce cache with junglehair on Monday.  eGADS!  How is someone s'posed to retrieve that without falling 2 stories!



Therefore, I am on the search for a Tarzan-like monkey boy (or girl) who is willing to endure bitter Arctic winds, slippery walls and a fairly scary climb to retrieve the cache.  Transportation there and hot chocolate afterward is on me!  I'm trying to figure out some sort of harness system to prevent any accidents.  Anybody got a cherry-picker we can borrow?  Maybe we can get a group together.

You might be able to talk me into it. I'm in for a conference this week. Not sure on when I will have any free time yet.

If the climb is too scary, you just have to be inventive. With the right gear (duck tape, a couple of poles and a couple of tools), I was able to retrieve and replace the cache without climbing.

Well, I found a monkey-girl to help with this cache, and who da thunk she'd have a name like junglehair!!!  How appropeaux!  And she brought two Crazy and Lost friends.  Many thanks to all who gave advice, and who offered their help.  We managed this one without having to climb at all!  I was pretty scared about this cache because when you drive by it on Chief Peguis, it actually looks like a sheer drop off on the south side.  I was pleasantly surprised to see a sidewalk and gently sloping hill.  It wasn't as scary as I thought.  We were done quite quickly too!
