Howdy folks.
I've been at this "geocaching thing" for several years (off and on), and had no idea there was a Maine website.
Now that I know it's here I'll try and stop by more often:)

Nice to see new folks come in and try us out. We have a pretty good little group here. Come to Skowhegan on the 9th. Many of us will be at the event there. Some good charities as well as getting to meet some fellow cachers face to face. Welcome in.

Welcome to geocachinmaine.org MaineMountainMan . . . I have some fond memories of Bethel -- I proposed to my wife at Screw Auger Falls (figured if she said no I could always throw myself over the falls :D . . . fortunately she said yes . . . well fortunately for me, not so fortunate for her :D ). My best friend's dad lives in Bethel (after migrating there from Massachusetts) so I used to go there every once in a while so Matt could combine a visit with me and his dad . . . haven't been there in some time though and I know there's got to be plenty of caches out that way, right?

Welcome MaineMountainMan. As you can read we have a pretty diverse group of cachers here from all walks of like and age groups. Nice to have someone from the western Maine area and look forward to you spending more time here on the site and maybe meeting at an event in the near future. Don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have about anything geocaching related,we always have someone here who can be helpful. Happy Caching Haffy

No, no no! If her answer had been no, she would have thrown Jake over the falls! Sheesh!

Welcome!! Glad you're here - the more the merrier!!:)

Yup. As long as you're "merry". If not, we have a separate thread for that, too.

Welcome! See you on the trail! (Or then again, maybe not... With all these "park and grab" caches showing up in central Maine, we don't even bother to hitch up the seat belt any more! Trail? What trail? LOL!)

Screw Auger Falls???
I know it well. Come to think of it, it's only a "stone's throw" from Tiger Tat's "the Jail" cache.
There are several caches around here.
I don't cache as much as I used to, when the kids were younger, but I still get out every now and again.
With me, having the time is an issue.
There's 4 or 5 new caches within 5 miles of my house, but I haven't had a chance to hit them yet.
Gotta do it before winter.

Ah, time . . . the one commodity we always seem to be in short supply. Pesky work (real work, working on the house, working around the house) keeps getting in the way of having fun!:D
