You had help, yeah, I'm not entirely sure about the fun part.  Don't you 
remember ingesting enough mosquitoes to weigh the same as a small child...?

I have done a bit or climbing/rappelling now and have my own harness.  Just 
you wait til I'm out there next... now that I know *where* the Lock Climber 
cache is, exactly...

Re: the Ambitious Snorkeler: you'd be lucky to know precisely where to dig 
your ice fishing hole - I usually have to have my dive mask in the water to 
see it and then only if the vis is good.  With ice overhead good luck. 
Maybe you could convince a local scuba shop to do their Ice Diving course at 
that location...?  Hehehe.  FWIW The cache sits at 15' depth (pretty much 
exactly) and the bottom is at 25' to the sand, although the immediate area 
beneath the cache bottoms out at 18'.

Here are the answers to Bluelamb's questions

1. The Spit is a bit much, but hey, if we could get an airboat ; )
2. Cedar Island was fun in the summer, but I had help(thanks Freefloat)
3. I am brave, but not brave enough for winter climbing.
4. Ice fishing the cache would be about 10-15 feet, and there are underwater
cameras for fishermen.
5. I could be game, Trailhead rents the gear

6. Will be fun to get together again
