There are a few people interested in doing the Four Cache Loop Pick a date that best suits you. If we get enough people together we'll try to get the owner of this cache to be our guide. It will be during hunting season, so think about wearing something bright orange.

Too bad Halloween falls on a Monday. I would love to start the hike in the afternoon, set camp at the small lake, then head out in the morning. Finding DB Cooper on Halloween night sounds like fun >:D

After FINALLY finding the DB Cooper cache, in Texas that is, I'm assuming the final coords are somewhere around the FCL?

The cache page for "D. B. Cooper Jr. by geowyz! & pnew" is here.  The waypoint is GCGGTR, and yes, it is close-ish to FCL.

When we found it, there had been a forest fire the year before, but the cache survived.

I contacted Ty Dolan, the owner of FCL....he's excited about being our guide O0!! He can't do it the first weekend in October so that worked out well. We just gotta let him know which Saturday in October we're goin!

Crap!  I'm working every Saturday in October.  I guess I'll vote for the 15th and take a vacation day, if it works out.  At least I'm not working nights that weekend...

I originally voted for Oct. 22 because I don't have the kids that weekend, but am available on Oct. 15th if that is the consensus. Will just have to drag them along or leave them home (they are persnickety teenagers now!!  ::) ) Count me in.

The 15th is good for me.  It'll prolly be better weather than this last weekend. I wouldn't worry too much about he bow hunters. It's the "big guns" you got to watch out.  I'd love to campout friday night if the weather is good.  Hidden lake and lake neiderhoffer are great spots.  See ya'll there.

Is Hidden Lake about half way through the hike or at the beginning?

The reason i ask is, it would be nice if others could join us on Saturday that don't want to or aren't able to spend the night.

Poohbear, thats doesn't include you, because you really need to spend the night. This is a fear that needs to be conquered. I'm thinkin soilent green might help  ;)

Anyone else interested in camping out overnight? Its primitive camping correct?

It's not that I'm afraid of the woods at night.... I'm afraid of being in the woods at night with GQ.


Soilent Green might help with THAT fear too :D.

I am not a camper but while on the trail I did not see a single animal.  No snakes, no spiders, no mossies, no pooh bears, nothing, nada.

I am in for camping.  Actually it will make it easier for me if we do camp that weekend.  :)

I looked at the map for the 3 notch loop cache. Here's the link http://img.groundspe...e/53504_200.jpg

To camp at hidden lake we'll need to hike in about 1/2 way, set up camp, and then finish the trail the next day. That means hiking in your stuff, MRE's, extra water, etc. Of couse we could camp at Huntsville State Park and then meet up for the hike the next morning.

Jeff and I are game, if we want to make this a group effort....any takers? Either way is fine with us. Looks like we're getting together a nice size little group!

I like the idea of HSP but will go with the vote either way.  I do think camping  out is a great idea either way.

For our first time, I would prefer a one day trip.

Mrs. said, “ _ _ _ _ NO, I’m not camping in the middle of the forest without water or power”. Sounds like fun to me but, we will have to pass if it’s an overnight trip.
