Take a Bite

11:52 am - We decided to take on Butano today, but some better planning helped. First, we didn't leave the house until about 10. Second, I decided that the autorouted trip up and over 92 was too slow, so I decided to go over Skyline. That cost us another 20 minutes or so. When we got there, we didn't have change for a pass. We asked a few people but they couldn't help us. Thankfully we ran into a ranger who could. After all those missteps, it was nice to finally get on the trail. Then I realized that I forgot my calibrated map at home. I wanted to do the caches in a counter-clockwise direction, but ended up doing them clockwise with this one first. It took me a while to get a lock and find this one, but eventually I looked around the right tree and there it was. Thanks for the warm up! Posted by jeff at November 19, 2005 11:52 AM
