Every fall the "Penman" and I complete the "Frontenac Challenge" - this is
our fifth year, the year we get our names on a BRASS plaque, so I know we
can't make it in Sept / Oct (even when we're not hiking, he is XO with Navy
Reserve unit, and I'm CSM with Army Reserve unit, so out weekends are booked
full).

Don't let that stop you.  I have an ammo box (nice big one) I'd like to
donate to the cause.

Let me know how to get it to you.

It sounds like there is a bit of support for this idea, so I'll get 
started on writing up the cache description. I'd like to ask for some 
opinions. What would be a good date to go? Which caches should we attempt? 
Where should we meet?

I think we should try for at least The Islands - Part III, Pirates of the 
St. Lawrence, Merlin's Quest, and The Islands - Part Deux since they are 
all so close together. This would suggest meeting up somewhere in 
Gananoque. At the rental place? At a comfortable park bench? Any 
suggestions?

Other island caches which are not so close to Gananoque are Something 
About Mary (in the States), The Islands - Part 1, NAMSOIL (probably MIA), 
and Cedar Surprise. I think that's all of them. Anybody want to go for 
some of these too? How far would be too far away? I read that Team 
Kuebbing once ran out of gas in their rental boat, and we don't want to do 
that!

As for the date, it will have to be on a weekend, but not Thanksgiving. 
Cast yer votes.
