Little Prairie Caches : Back down into the low-mid 30s, but the sun was shining so we went to pick up a few caches hidden in The Little Prairie Conservation Area.  We also found some more 'dumped' dead fish, although this time they were in the water instead of a mile away from nearest body ofwater.  At any rate,  "This is a 342 acre recreational area featuring 100 acre Towell Lake. There's a large picnic area on one side of the lake with picnic tables and bar-b-que pits. The other side of the lake has a boat ramp, fishing dock and a walk out pier. It's a perfect place for picnics, canoeing, kayaking and fishing with catfish, bass, crappie and an assortment of sunfish available. There's plenty of parking on both sides of the lake as well as restrooms on both sides."  We saw the billowing smoke on the way home.  Big fire burning somewhere close by.  Hope it's not in the Mark Twain National Forest.  Will have to do a search.

BS Natural Tunnel Earth Cache : Pete and I went back to Bennett Springs State Park to nab the Natural Tunnel Earth Cache.  Glorious spring day - too bad it's supposed to snow tomorrow.  (It did, and freezing rain too)  We took the West Side trail (4.1 miles) to the tunnel and returned on the East Side trail (3.5 miles).  We sure missed having control points with their ice tea, beer & schnapps and kasebrot to help us along our way - plus the company of our volksmarching friends.

Bennett Spring State Park Geo : Sunday afternoon March 9, 2014, Pete and I drove 46 miles to Bennett Spring State Park to pick up a few caches.  Once a milling community named Brice, this State Park offers hiking trails, trout fishing, camping, trout fishing, swimming, trout fishing, picnicking and, oh - did I mention - TROUT FISHING!  Known to the Osage Indians as "Eye of the Sacred One" this is the third largest natural spring in Missouri, pumping one million gallons of water every day.  But what makes this State Park so special and adds to its popularity is the new and improved Bennett Spring State Park Hatchery.  Though we didn't have time to visit the hatchery on this trip, we did get to see some of trout that are released into the spring every night from March through October.  We missed opening day by one week, but the banks/waterway were still pretty crowded with anglers who were lured out by the fish and the warm, sunny spring weather.  While most visitors to the park were fishing, Pete and I were caching, but we weren't totally alone.  While seeking an Earth Cache we met Unitzoid, who had traveled to the park from Columbia, MO.  A veteran cacher, Unitzoid has found 3484 caches and has hidden 66 of his own - mostly of the puzzle or multi-cache variety!  (In comparison, we've found only 728, and hidden none -yet!)  At any rate, we had a great time and will be returning often to this area, for caching and fishing.  : )

Rothenburg HIWC Feb 2013 : Photos are from HIWC's bus trip to Rothenburg 23-24 February 2013.  Once we arrived in Rothenburg we had our choice of walking a 6km, 11km or 21km in the morning, and in the afternoon an 11km walk through the Alstadt (old city).  Pete, I and some friends walked the 11km in the morning, plus we got a chance to do a little geocaching along the way.  Following a traditional German lunch (thanks for arranging it Will) some of us went on the city walk, some went shopping and some went geocaching, and some of us did a little of it all.  In the evening a small group braved the cold temperature and went out with the Night Watchman for a tour of the Alstadt that really brought Rothenburg's history to life.  The Watchman was very informative and extremely entertaining.  Following breakfast the next morning we left for Creglingen where we had the option to walk the 10km permanent trail or visit a thimble museum.  Will, Pete and I started the 10km but eventually veered off and up to search for local geocaches.  (Loved the cache at the river!)  After the walk and another great German meal, we headed for Schloss Weikersheim for a guided tour.  What a beautiful castle!  (So many beautiful castles, so little time left :(
Of course, we had to get one last cache before getting back on the bus and returning to Heidelberg.  It was another outstanding HIWC trip.

Cacher's Eleven (+1) : Cacher's Eleven (plus 1) had Pete and I searching for hidden treasures through Naturpark Neckartal-Oderwald in Leimen for a few hours on a Sunday afternoon.  It was a fun series of creative caches with some unexpected challenges, to include a magic box, hidden tool and a steep climb.  We met and collaborated with some other local cachers seeking the same hidden hoards, which made it even more fun and educational.  We found all 11 plus the one additional Earth cache Geologie des Oldenwaldes.  I hope they also got out before the storm hit the area.   (Note to selves: put together a more complete cacher's tool kit - a hat tip to Cuxabain and a Thank you to to the other cachers we met.)
