You'll have no cell coverage so plan accordingly with however you cache "offline”.
A mile up the road from lost maples is foxfire cabins. Highly recommend. We've stayed there several times.
Chiggers, yes. Prepare accordingly.
Monkey Rock is cool. There is a cache there.
It's hot. Hydrate.
Garner and Texas Hill country SP are reasonably short drives from Lost Maples.
Garner if you've never been is very nice.
Wooo...I've activated all 7 of my Deadly Ducks...but only completed "info sheets" for 3, (yellow,red,orange if you're interested), so far...COUNTDOWN TIME!
I've put so much effort in filling out the sheets that I'm really wanting to laminate my papers. Do any/all Houston-area libraries have that capability? Or how have you done that in the past?
I've "matched" my Ducks with the following items:
Gluttony - measuring cup
Wrath - keychain flashlight (visit haunted, murderous places)
Greed - Scratch-off keychain
Sloth - freebie Pedometer
Envy - Ariel old aquarium piece...never put in aquarium
Lust - Fake diamond ring
Any ideas for the last one? Find a lion?
We're leaving tomorrow to spend a few days in the park. I've been to the hill country often but not this park- we always wanted to go in the fall and it never worked out. Does anyone have any extra info on bugs and critters? I will be so happy to get away from the mosquitos for a while as I was when we went to Austin last month---instead, I came home with 50 chigger bites after sitting on an asphalt trail w/my dog for 5 minutes. It was extremely hot and he needed to rest.
Any advice for hiking around to find caches (particularly concerning insects) would be greatly appreciated!
