So is the plan for 10am tomorrow then?

 

 I'll need to grab another set of teeth, this must explain BB's teeth  :2funny:   I may also get a pair of HC's extra control adult diapers.  :stirpot:

Forecasting rain. I am assuming it is a go short of a flood or lightning.

 

I dont want to sign the structure bad enough to get melted into it from a lightning strike. Guess I would create a unique cache container if that happened, gotta be remembered for something.

If anyones interested, after this, I'm planning on heading over to the Baytown Nature center (access is free tomorrow as it's the 1st Sunday of the month) to try to qualify for the Houston Area Pic 6 challenge - GC219QQ and possibly grabbing BNC - Brute Force.  I'm fairly certain I know the general location, but I probably need to do some swimming to get to it as I don't have a Yak to bring, may or may not do it, I need it for my D/T grid.  I'm surprised I haven't done this in the Houston Area.  I've done 6 types in a Day in Austin before, and 9 in Lakeland, Florida, and 10 in Seattle but I've only done 5 types in a day in Houston.

Looking at the hourly predictions it's 30-50% chance all morning for rain.  And then T-storm chances don't come in until 2pm.  But I agree, short of lightening and flooding, I'm in.

I'll be at GZ between 10-10:30... I'm coming from the northwest side of Houston so I have a haul. Shouldn't be too bad on a Sunday morning I wouldn't think. If it's as windy as it was today, it should make it even more interesting. LOL

We missed out on the pick6 challenge the last time, so I think I may join you. Was originally planning on grabbing some other Baytown caches, but plans can change!

Be careful out there on Brute Force.  Those oyster shells are incredibly sharp and can go right through the thick soles of mud boots without issue.

Yep, I left some DNA on the log sheet. I was bleeding from three different places.

Hum, I was planning on swimming it, maybe I'll leave this one until I have a Yak I can use.  I hate swimming with shoes, but had planned on just using my swim shoes, which sound like the oyster shells would just go right through. I'm sure I can find an alternate puzzle to complete for the 6 in a day.

We made it!!. Rain stopped long enough to climb the bridge.Dhaulaghiri, Jayhawk & friend (sorry I didnt get the name), Javcky (my son) and myself made the climb. Shame the fog was thick, got pictures. Glad we did it, was a blast

 

Dhaulaghiri shot video of the group climb (Yay Dhaulaghiri!!!).

 

Jayhawk placed a replacement cache container (magnetic) after we all signed the log. I signed the structure as well.

 

Just as we got back to our vehicles the rain came down, I think someone had our backs!!!

So, instead of aiming for the water, the water aimed for you?   :angel:   Sounds like a good time was had by all, and what more could one want?

It was great! I can't believe I did that.... my legs were shaking like a bowl of jelly when I got back down to the ground. Never been so happy to have feet back in the cold mud. LOL 

 

Can't wait to see Dhaulaghiri's video. I have some pics to post but the Super Bowl is on so I'll post 'em tomorrow. :)

But think this is the one that really lets you see how high up it is once you get up there. Craaaazy!  :uglystupid2:
