Idea is to find some eagles or other interesting subjects to capture, Then breakfast ofcourse. I will be around Wisconsin until at least Easter after that I will be in and out of the country a couple of times over the course of the summer. Would like to GTG before Easter if posible.

So if you are interested in attending, Join this thread with ideas as well as time and date suggestions.

I'm definitely in. Just name the place.

I would prefer to avoid sub zero temps and mind numbing wind chills, as we had last March. I'm open to any suggestions.

Had you not lost all that weight you wouldn't get as cold. :) However I agree 110% a warmer day would be much better. Hopefully March will be a bit more seasonable.

Count me in! I will have to agree about the cold but I think that was just bad luck. Its not usually that cold in March. Prarie du Sac would be OK with me cause I still would like to see some eagles before they take off for parts unknown.

True Bugzie, my skinny arse chills easily these days. I'm good for just about any Saturday going forward until spring break time (week of April 5-11).

I'm usually good weekends as well... except Jan. 31 & March 28th/29th.

How does Sunday March 1st at Prairie du Sac sound? We could shoot eagles on the Wisconsin River, breakfast, the Baraboo bluffs, Ferry's point, or Natural Bridge state park, lunch, and the sculpture yard at Delaney's surplus in the afternoon.

March 1st works for me, but my pessimistic side believes we're being set up for another bone-chilling cold streak about then.
02/07/2009 11:44:53 PM · #17
My suggestion would be to tell that side to be quiet until march 2nd.

Those of you from points east of me - interested in carpooling from Madison?
02/08/2009 10:44:07 PM · #20
Not sure about car pooling. I might be heading in a different direction when I leave there. Ill keep you posted though. Hey I will have a new toy with me this time to show you guys. I ordered a Gigapan Epic today. Should arrive mid week.

Bump.
02/11/2009 07:27:46 PM · #22
I'm pretty sure I can make March 1st. I'll block it out on the calendar and plan on being there at 06:00... so expect me around 06:15, LOL.
Meet at the power plant?

Meet the same place as last time would be ideal because I still have it pegged on my GPS. Ill be there at 6:00 unless it is -5 degrees, Then Ill roll in around the same time as Fritz. Because I do not want to stand around in the cold waiting for him to get there, haha

Actually, I didn't wind up going at all... so much going on during the week that I wasn't really prepared, so I bailed.
