View Full Version : Unscramble the Maine city/town...



Cache Maine

Okay, here goes.

I'll give you a Maine city/town/etc. that has been scrambled. Figure it out and then its your turn to post one. (No need to wait and see if you get it right....if all the letters are there then you are right!)

Please use places that are found in a recent Maine Gazetteer. This is meant to be an easier alternative to the "cache name scramble thread." Please keep it simple.

Here's the first one:

wrote print



Good Luck! Bonus Points if you can also name a cache in that city/town without looking it up! :D
