Trade all those Bangor quickies for my You Sank My Battleship! (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=46728) (GCB688) by brdad (http://www.geocaching.com/profile/default.asp?A=61905) (4/2). You could do it in as little as 3 hours and still have time to buy a canoe. At least one of the stages is on the way there anyway.

First of all, im getting a kayak and not a canoe! hehehehe

Looks like a good cache to do, but I will be with my brother and I highly doubt he will wanna drive around.

You can't do Battleship in 6" of snow in 3 hours! More like 3 days:p
Really worth doing if you have the time, though.

Drop him off at Diva's, that'll give him something to do while you're caching.

Well I have a few suggestions . . . but they are just suggestions. Incidentally, I need to update this list since there have been a bunch of other caches placed since I compiled this list.

I don't think you'd find any FTF's there:D :D :D

These are ones I did when I was there to pick up my Maine geocoins in Feb.

Prentiss cache (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=a1aeb66f-5085-401b-af48-3176a499ab16)

Carmel Rest Stop Cache (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=6b7a90a1-63cc-451b-bfaa-9f4d9e174d65)



Hampden and Tribute were multis and took a while but were fun. The others only took about a half hour each on a cold winter day. You can probably do better now.

Happy Hunting.

I would suggest doing Alex's Monster Multiple Nightmare # 2 GCP6N8 it will take you approximately 2 days and probably $100.00 worth of gas at the prices that they are today.....lol :eek: :eek: On a more serious note though, there are many caches in the Bangor, Brewer area that will take you very little time. :D

I was thinking of suggesting the same thing, but thought I probably should behave myself. I'm still working on this one . . . a little at a time.

A couple more caches were just released in Bangor today . . . if the GPSr is working correctly they're pretty easy to get to and one is pretty unique (at least it's the first one of its sort that I have run across.)

I just did a really quick one today on my way home, it was called "unknown monument" very quick and easy, took me less than 10 minutes.

The old swimming hole is a nice cache and not far from oldtown. GCKWAE. Also a cache called Dude.. where is my stash? , on the univ. campus in orono. GC416A. You will be driving right by both of these on your way to the canoe factory if you take the Stillwater exit

Nature walk

This rates right up there with my top ten in the area. Nature walk was great. It might be a bit out of the way but worth it and if you where looking for a nice afternoon of caching with quality Try brewer by the numbers

Birch Stream is close and you can try out your new kayak ;-) There are some nice travel bugs in there too.
