Sometimes as you make a run geocaching you see some interesting sights.. A bear, some nesting birds, meet other cachers, find someone broke down & offer a hand.... you get the gist.
Well today we were making the "stud mill road" run. Got a lot of the caches & as we were approaching the "crossroads cache" GC1J32Y ( we came upon an unusual sight!! Here in the middle of the road was an airplane! So of course we stopped... we had to.. Had a chat with the fellow & it seems his plane was running "rough" (as he put it) and he felt he ought to set down ASAP... which he did... on the stud mill road. So we, & a couple other folks who came along helped shove it off into the "toolie-weeds". I offered to make a call on Ham Radio to help him out but he had already made all the necessary contacts & said assistance was on the way... so we bid farewell & went along with our caching run. Later on, the gentleman caught up with us on his way towards Orono & said all was well & he'd be getting the plane out the next day, either on it's own power or dis-winged and trucked. He thanked us for the help.

Just goes to show... ya never know what ya might encounter on a caching run!!
This was one Kathy & I will definitely remember..

Just how do you plan to log *THAT* cache?
