If anyone is planning on any new Bangor area caches then please go for it. I am working on a challenge cache and I need a few more in the coming weeks. I am not good with all the great puzzle caches I have left in the area and I desperately need some that are winter friendly. So if you were thinking about placing some now would be a big help to me. I need today, tomorrow, and 3 next week as well. Then some in February, March, and April. The big problem is that most fall on weekdays were I have to squeeze them in before of after work. Thanks if you are considering placing any out.

Did you get a cache yesterday? I am working on the same thing but my mission is to fill in half or better of what i am missing this year and the rest next year. Good luck!

And I got the one I needed for today. Now I need to log them. I have one planned for tomorrow and Monday. After that I will have slim picking.

Thanks Mike.... I'm sure Suited Pair will appreciate it. They have been a bit busy as of late with their new house.

Just be careful. I didn't do a good job with the magnet and there are obvious muggle tracks.

Except your puzzles are beyond my level of thought and ability. Now a nice traditional would be sweet.

I can place you a nice puzzle you or anybody else will be able to solve without any problems. I have one ready I just don't know where to place it.

Don't cut them any slack! :rolleyes: I spent two weekends helping move box after box. The least they could do is update a cache or two! :D:D:D

To all my buddies:D in the area. I am getting SOOOOO desperate for caches now I have had to resort to try and figure out some of the puzzles. This is with help and tuturing of course. Why you ask? Because I have no idea what an integer is among other number thingys. Help me before I have to learn anything besides walking and looking for boxes!!:eek:



OK so now I am begging.......

I have no idea what an integer is among other number thingys


The integers (from the Latin (http://www.geocachingmaine.org/wiki/Latin) integer, literally "untouched", hence "whole": the word entire comes from the same origin, but via French[1] (http://www.geocachingmaine.org/forum/#cite_note-0)) are formed by the natural numbers (http://www.geocachingmaine.org/wiki/Natural_numbers) including 0 (0 (http://www.geocachingmaine.org/wiki/0_(number)), 1 (http://www.geocachingmaine.org/wiki/1_(number)), 2 (http://www.geocachingmaine.org/wiki/2_(number)), 3 (http://www.geocachingmaine.org/wiki/3_(number)), ...) together with the negatives (http://www.geocachingmaine.org/wiki/Negative_number) of the non-zero natural numbers (−1 (http://www.geocachingmaine.org/wiki/%E2%88%921_(number)), −2, −3, ...). Viewed as a subset of the real numbers (http://www.geocachingmaine.org/wiki/Real_number), they are numbers that can be written without a fractional or decimal component, and fall within the set {... −2, −1, 0, 1, 2, ...}. For example, 65, 7, and −759 are integers; 1.6 and 1½ are not integers.

Hope it helps. :)

It is suppose to be a challenge! I have had to resort to heading out on the trails and enjoy the beautiful peace and quiet of the Maine and NH woods. :rolleyes:

A man buys a 250' spool of 12/2 and uses it to wire his small home. He uses 200' of it, enter the remaining number for the North coord.
The green wire is the common ground. True/false
if true use 520 for the west coord.
if false use 521 as the west coord.

It is not in the que. But if I were to tell you right where I placed it, that would not be in the spirit of the game, now would it. :mad:

How about somewhere in Southern Maine?????? :eek:

Would that be the grounded conductor cache or the grounding conductor cache?

And how often is there a green ground wire in 12/2? Did he wire his house in MC cable?

Now you're just toying with me. Maybe we should have an electrical based puzzle based on the NEC....Hmmm that gives me an idea.:rolleyes:

In the past I've considered hiding a puzzle cache based on electronic circuits and/or series-parallel resistance calculations. But there is a fine line between hiding a puzzle so someone can learn something then go find the cache or boring them to death.

That's a cute one, but as usual I ignored my first instinct so I tried the wrong way first.

We go through Rochester a lot on the way to Weare, so now I guess I should stop and get it. Looks like another LPC in Google street view, just can't get enough of them! Maybe my first instinct will be wrong there, too! Can't say I wasn't warned either way. :p

I remember that lost in translation cache. Did it back in 2006. RJB has some great puzzles. Don't know if it is still active, but I really liked How do you hide and elephant.

I have been thinking about this and wondering how I could possibly help out and I finally came upon this idea.....

Make GZ the coordinates of their house, accurate right up to the front door entrance.


In order to get credit a cacher must knock on the door so the CO can deliver the cache to them on a silver platter….equipped with a pen and a microbrew.



And to make the cache even more challenge friendly…on the cache page will be the CO’s home phone and/or cell number so you can call ahead to make sure the CO is home, so there will be no need for PAF.


And here's the best part. The CO will even cut and paste the log for you.



I sure hope that this helps, I know how stressed you have been over this challenge. So how many friends do you have....? :rolleyes:



I can poke fun at you since I only have 2 days left, and I have hundreds of unfound caches within 10 miles of my home, and winter friendly ones too. :p

Is the challenge you are talking about to find a cache for each day of the year?

Either way - good luck! Hope you are able to get the ones you need :o)

And if you think I am kidding about my Silver Platter series, check out a few of the pics on this cache. It's in Warren PA, and near the Geowoodstock event. I'm sure there will be many cachers trying to get this one. Hopefully not all at the same time.......

No no, same time would be even BETTER! Especially if the requirement doesn't change. Can you imagine if 1000 cross dressers showed up in front of your home?
