I was doing the tour of the North Maine Woods this weekend, and noticed a waypoint near me on the GPSr. Found the cache and logged my find. When I got ready to log in the computer, it said that the cache had been archived (a year ago) and the listing had been locked, no new log entries allowed.
Now, I found the cache (still there even though it had been archived), signed the log...is there any provision for logging if the cache is still there???
BTW, cache in question is GCKNHR

Hey Andy if you find a way to log it let me know cause I too found that cache last November when I was up that way for a weekend of caching and signed the log as well and couldn't log it. I must have been the last person to sign it before you. I even emailed the owners about having it picked up but got no reply. Maybe if there is someone who lives in that area can pick it up as it is archived.

Caches are usually locked for a reason, but not sure why this one was. Anyway, it seems you are out of luck as far as logging it. Someone should remove it, however.

I don't know why this particular cache page was locked, so I wrote to the cache owner to ask if it is OK to unlock it but leave it archived. I'll let you know if I get a response.

I did not receive a response from the cache owner, so I have unlocked the cache page so you folks who have found it can log your finds.

Please do not encourage others to search for it as it is archived and should be off nearly everyone's radar screen - except those of you who never clear out your GPSr. :rolleyes:

Hopefully one last cacher will remove it. Where are those Rescue Rangers? ;-)

Is that an image of a "RR" that I see spotlighted in the night sky . . . although I could be wrong, it may be an image of a bat . . . or maybe it's an image of a kayak. :D

Thanks Brad for looking into this for us. So Andy did you hear that,we can now log the cache.. And I see another rescue mission in the works but it will certainly be a lot easier than the last one for sure. Maybe Dave and Gail can take care of it as they have a cache themselves nearby. Thanks again to GPSfun.

Already logged it:p

And, I noticed that I'd missed a cache on the other side of the dam, so I'll have to go back at some point. If nobody had cleaned it up before then, I'll get it.

Since this is an easier rescue would Dave and Gail be considered Junior Rescue Rangers? :D

The Rescue Rangers are a busy bunch!

It would be a lot of fun to go as a group and get this cache (Junior Rescue Rangers allowed). Unfortunately, I am busy every weekend until September now. Wow.... where did my summer go?
