As those of you who know me,I always have enjoyed taking photos of most of the places I have cached and I know lot of you also like to do the same. I would like to suggest a fun way to share in those places and maybe even make it a regular part of this website if it garners enough interest. I am suggesting a thread where a photo is posted in an area where there is a cache located and the first individual to guess where the photo was taken and maybe the cache ID # will get to post their own photo and so on and so on. This I think would be a lot of fun and it will also be a way to show others some of the great places that we have in the the state where there are caches located. I would like to start off with the following photo and the first person to guess where it is and the cache ID # and name of the cache will then get to post their own photo. If you have been here this one will be easy.

Thats all I did to get my picture in here. I use photobucket as well. Maybe you have to resize your pic. Maybe it's too big. I think the final size I had was less than 100KB. I use the Windows Power Toy image resizer. You can find it here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

I'm on dialup too so it takes quite a while for me to bring your photo up as well.

Thats right Tom, Babbling Brook cache in Belfast. Now let's see you if can stump someone else.

That wasn't the babbling brook cache I did! The one I did was rigtht off the main road up a bank about 250' with no trails or signs, or babbling brook for that matter! Guess that's what happens when you start from the wrong point!

This if a nice idea, Haffy. Maybe I'll be able to submit a few of my pictures that I forgot where I was when I took them!

It's a shot in the dark, but one of the few places that I've personally seen pitcher plants is at the bog walk near Quoddy Quandry, GC8A65 . . . although I'm pretty sure there are pitcher plants located in other bogs.

Maybe I should try playing the lottery today . . . that guess was pretty lucky.

I found all kinds of great shots of lighthouses (I have a "thing" for them), but decided to use this photo . . . it could be tricky since it isn't right next to the cache, but rather it can be seen as you make your way to the cache . . . although I suspect folks who are caching for the numbers may take the shorter route and miss seeing (and experiencing) this great view -- a true gem that I suspect many folks never have seen or heard. One of my favorite caches . . . and unfortunately the photo really can't do this place justice.

If this proves too difficult (probably not for this crowd though) I have a few other shots of other places I can post that should be easier.

And incidentally, Haffy, this was a great idea!

Do you really want me to come clean with the answer . . . I know it because a) I've been there and b) I kind of cheated to get the answer so it wouldn't be fair to get to be the next person to post a photo.

And Haffy you know me . . . I'm always off topic . . . heck I'm always off my meds . . . always welcoming new members that are apparently figments of my imagination, thinking Hiram's Jeep is the epitome of four wheel ruggedness, etc. ;) :D

Haffy
01-11-2007, 05:51 PM

I think to keep this whole game legit it would be a wise idea to change the name of the photo to hinder those who wish to cheat to get the correct answer. I just realized that you could get the name by just right clicking on the photo and going to properties which unless it is a generic photo will give you the correct name.:eek: I too knew where the photo was taken as I have also found that cache and to find out if I was right on my guess I did just that and the correct answer was revealed.

Let's do this the fair way ok? Sorry to spoil anyones fun but that's what this was all about and having fun. :D

01-12-2007, 09:08 AM
I figured someone from our Tread Lightly event might get that one . . . either that or I figured WhereRWe would come up with it.

And yup, Haffy, that was what I was doing . . . well except for my first real and honest guess about the Pitcher Plant at Quoddy Quandry.

What I did with my photo to prevent that was to save it as another file and I renamed it . . . I think I called it MysteryPhoto or GuessWhere or something like that . . . and uploaded that photo. I think most folks are pretty honest and as you mentioned this is just a fun game, but changing the name of the photo makes it more of a challenge. Again . . . a great idea to show folks some great places in Maine.

I'm a bit surprised at getting that one Becke . . . I believe that was a pre-TGIF outing since I wasn't with you and/or Hollora on that one. I found that cache on a trip with the ORCAs . . . which reminds me (not to get side tracked, but I do . . . Hiram, have you and G-Team come up with a plan for Tread Lightly II: The Return of the White Jeep? :D )

Anyways, here's another one . . . so many photos and places . . . but this is another one of my favorite caching locations.

Haffy
01-17-2007, 06:56 PM
I don't think anyone should be exempt. I mean how would you know where it is unless you had been there? It's just a matter of remembering where you were when you found the cache and not forgetting your surroundings. We surely are lucky to visit these places that geocaching brings us to. Ok, this is one of Laughing Terry's caches.

Cool . . . I've been there way back in my pre-geocaching days (remember I have a "thing" for lighthouses), but didn't know there was a cache there . . . looks like I'll have a good excuse to go back. I've got a pic of this lighthouse hanging in my den since I really liked it.

It also seems from the last few logs that the cache needs some maintenance and a new logbook. The owner hasn't visited the site since October so maybe someone who is in that area could leave a new logbook or something to help out.
