Speaking of snow shoes the local Sam's Club in Bangor has theirs marked down to 1/2 price. All the heavy weight ones (up to 275#) were gone yesterday but there were a load of the ones for 200# and under. $80+ vs. $41 and change - I bought a set!

Sorry hkybob - not from Southern Maine and haven't tested mine yet either. Thought I would share on the sale and will be watching the thread for some suggestions to try mine out too!

hky bobLook in the upper right hand corner under attributes.There is a snow flake symbol there which means the cache is winter friendly.This usually means the cache is in a tree or it's protected from the snow in some way.I have some winter caches that I've put out that are in trees.These can be done by snowshoes,skis and snowsleds.

Cox Pinnacle and Cox Pinnacle Peak. These are nice caches to snowshoe to. The caches are under the snow but easy to find. I did these last year in the snow. Have fun!

I highly recommend "Sabattus Mountain Tribute Cache" GCZEDP (shamless plug inserted here):D

I might surprise you - LOL - I'd like to see what it is like doing this cache using the expected path rather than the one that Diana and I created! Wow - that trek was certainly an experience not to be forgotten. Thank goodness for the bog gods :eek:

Speaking of shameless plugs...

We've got some!

"Within the Lair" GCX8AV and "Salamander" GCX8B8 are both winter friendly and in the same park... Right in your neck of the woods. Kinda a two for one! The trails here are really nice for walking, or snowshoeing.

We also have "Cache of the day" GCY6J7 and "A Cache in the Hand..." GCW4AQ, which are micros that are quite findable this time of year. At least as findable as the rest of the year! http://www.mainegeocachingassociation.com/images/icon_nav_admin.gif

"Croisare Éireann" GCTXD1 is winter hospitable too, especially if you have a snowmobile, as it's not far off of a snowmobile trail. We'll be checking on this cache soon. We heard that the bridge here may have been recently repaired. If this is the case, we'll be including a new access point which doesn't entail as long of a walk for those not up to one. http://www.mainegeocachingassociation.com/images/icon_smile.gif

Come and get 'em!!! http://www.mainegeocachingassociation.com/images/icon_smile_big.gif
