Greetings from New Britain Connecticut.

I searched out this forum because my wife Catlady and I are planning a trip to Madawaska in August. I wanted to get some ideas of caches we could find along the way. We are participating in the New England Challenge (GC27MHQ) where we are trying to find the oldest caches in all the New England states so we will definitely be stopping to find the Fort Williams cache (GC128).

Since we are driving to the top of the State I thought it might be fun to try and find the easternmost and northernmost caches in the US. Am I correct that the easternmost cache would be Quoddy Quandry (GC8A65)?

I see that what was called the Most Northeastern Cache in the US, (GCZDND) has been disabled. Does anyone know which cache is now the farthest northeast in Maine? (or just farthest North)

I see that several others have asked about the best caches to do in Maine so I will look at more posts here to get come additional caches to grab on our trip. We wonít be able to stop and do any long hikes but we certainly want to do some scenic ones. I did copy the caches near lighthouse list posted by benandtina.
Thanks to all for a great forum.

My sister lives in New Britain. She works at the Eastside. You been there? Cool place. Good luck here when you come up.

OK, so I've got to ask . . . what's in Madawaska . . . it's not exactly this State's hot spot tourist destination . . . it's a nice place and the folks up that-away are wicked friendly . . . but it's a long way from LL Bean and the coast. ;) :)

Most folks that head up that way are going to a family reunion, sledding or ATVing.

Most northern in Maine currently looks like Little Black River . . . but it also appears to be way, way out there. Next closest cache not disabled is the Four Corners cache in Madawaska . . . the good news is that Eichodokay sounds like he may be heading up there at some point to help get the most northerly cache going again.

A quick glance and it appears as though the Earth Cache Fundy Tides is actually the eastern most cache (I had to compare it to the Old Sow cache though) . . . Quoddy Quandry seems to be the eastern most physical cache in Maine.

Incidentally, I highly encourage anyone to cache and explore this area of Maine . . . and to make the hop, skip and jump over the International Bridge to Campobello Island . . . Lubec and Campobello Island are among my favorite places to camp and cache . . . very picturesque, good hiking trails, lots of wildlife . . . in the woods.

I suggest you take the (pay) ferry from Eastport to Deer Island - very quaint villages and a nice camping area right on the water. There's a free ferry at the other end of the island that will take you to St. George. Another nice little town and a good place for geocaching and for stocking up on supplies. :D:D

I would have to suggest do Quoddy Quandry, then hop on over here to Campobello Island and do a few! I have around 30 caches here. :D

We have not been there in years but enjoyed the food the last time we went.

Thanks for all the help. We were talking about spending the ngiht around Lubec and going to Campobello sounds great.

Ah, is this one of the very large family reunions that they hold up that-away?

Don't forget to take some time out from caching to check out Franklin D. Roosevelt's "Summer Cottage" . . . it's worth taking the time to see . . . and if memory serves me right Starz has a cache or two right there on the property anyways.

I don't know how large it will be, but I do know it will be a bunch of people i have not met yet.
