I had my first "Soggy Foot" find! Nothing like trekking through the woods with one wet foot - too bad the incident happened while going INTO the search, instead of coming out - that way I trudged 3/4 mile with the squishy boot instead of 1/4 mile. My only consolation was thinking if I get bit by a snake, he would get more mud than blood from me.

It seems you have to jump across a little creek to get to the path, and some muggle (at least I THINK it was a muggle) planted a stick in the mud on the far bank: the stick looked like a well-rooted tree that an old fool thought he could use as an anchor for the jump. But the stick gave way and I ALMOST landed face first in the water. Oh, well: KARMA will get the SOB!

Anyway - the final cache was a NICE find, beautiful area.  I was so grateful for being alive that I left a nice gift in a Chivas Regal bag (CLUE: NOT Chivas Regal). Signed the log and took a really cute plastic toy.

???

Ah, the Wet Boot episode was a real adventure, but I just KNOW, some day when they find my battered body in the woods somewhere, that all my Geo-caching friends will come to visit my grave and there adorn it with a truck-load of Happy Meal toys.

So, tell me - have you hiked with a wet foot before?
