No threads updated in the last 24 hours? Y'all can't be out geocaching (although the weather is great - 44 degrees here).

It has been quiet; perhaps everyone has everyone else on their ignore list now! :)

I have not spent quite as much of my free time posting as I have been working on a few macros and finishing up another carving (http://s235.photobucket.com/albums/ee37/brdad/Creations/?action=view&current=M1911Large.jpg) - I imagine being in the military you have seen a few of those before. ;)

We did get out and get 4 in Hampden today, a few I see you were the last finder. It is great weather to be out in.

Yeah - I've seen a few of those. Fired them a few times, too.

My son is here for a visit, and he doesn't like geocaching, so we're not doing much right now. He keeps complaining that it's cold - sheesh! Why would a kid who lives in Hawaii come to Maine for 2 weeks in February? LOL!

(Yeah - I know - he misses his Mother...)

Hey guys, Im here, just watching though. Ive got the geocaching bug again. Just trying to find the time with a 10month old cacher in training. I have noticed a lack of posting though since I was last a "regular". Hope everyone is doing well.

Hobby more than anything, but making a few bucks is not a bad thing either! Will carve for cache! :p

Met with fellow cachers at 7 AM this morning to discuss a geo-project and then headed south with Jim from Shuman Road Cachers to cache. Got to Bowdoinham and we both had our phones chiming an alert of a new one in Auburn. Got off 295 and drove slowly until the laptop found an unsecured link, downloaded the cache coords to a Nuvi and off we went to Auburn. Had a FTF at 8:18 on a Valentine's Day cache Martes put out.

Then on to the Portland area. Did 4 puzzle caches, one which is MIA and 10 others. 3 of the others were nice hikes in the woods with some challenging finds.

Lunch and a Bloody at DiMillo's and then a great find on Just Another Urban Micro, which is not just another micro by any stretch!!!

Grabbed some Dover Sole and oysters at Harbor Fish Market in the Old Port, great dinner and great day of caching!

That's where I was all day!:)

This past week was crazy! The boy had a basketball practice Monday for 2 hours, a playoff game Tuesday ( which they won ), practice Wednesday, and the championship game Thursday. They won by 9!! My grandfather inlaw has been here from Florida all week to attend a funeral and then today I had to meet with a couple of my caching buddies for breakfast and then Dubord and I headed out to cache in Portland. Some wonderful hides on some very nice trails and some devilish urban hides. 19 finds and one FTF! Tomorrow I think I will go caching. I see the new cache on Webber pond br RCWHIT and thought it would be a nice walk since the weather is suppose to be nice
once again. I need to cache now because in 2 or 3 weeks baseball starts. It is great to be a parent!!

It was so hard to make the call not to go caching. Opted instead to do some light hiking, absolutely a great day to walk in the woods. Did get out to place the first of a series I expect to take the rest of 2010 to place....Maine's World Tour Cities and Maine's World Tour Countries.
Got back home and fired up the grill to end the day.

Uggg.. I had to work today. Things are going nuts at work because some walked out of their job last night, so there's been some scrambling around to cover her upcoming shifts. Not fun.

I haven't found a cache since mid December. I'm itching to get out again. Soon. I've also found a nice area to place a bunch of caches.

Day started with the dog having eaten part of my glasses (fortunately I could still wear them) during the night. Left at 8AM to get my hair cut at the beauty school and they don't do appointments on Sat. Drat - 3rd in line and only 2 students today. Got finished there at 11:15A. Drove to Sam's to get the glasses fixed. Parking lot was a jungle. Lines everywhere - even in the Eye Glass section. Wait - but the nice lady fixed them and for Free! But she did warn me when the dog does this they often don't stop with the bows........but continue on to the nose pads and the lens. Rushed home to meet the folks we were going to dinner with in Princeton. Off to Princeton at 1:30P and down Rt. 9. No caching today - but ate a wonderful dinner of Roast Beef cooked on an outdoor spit/pit fire and the trimmings - strawberry shortcake for dessert. This was a fund raiser for Greenland Point Conservation Camp. Enjoyed the food, company and fun. Back on the road Westbound on Rt. 9 around 7:45P Home around 9:45P. No caching today but a beautiful day for a ride. Saw deer and a huge owl. Tomorrow - well, that will be spent catching up on what didn't get done for home chores today.

Not that anyone cares but... We got busier at work this week which is a good thing. Kathie has been gone all week so it was just me and the dogs. Yesterday I went out with the jeep club for a ride and then been watching the Olympics some. Today I want to find a few caches. Here in Bangor I think there are a few I need to do. Maybe a walk or two. Kathie will be home this afternoon so things will be back to normal. Plus it's Valentine's Day and it will be good that she's home.
