Old 470 (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=44562) (GCAE12) by brdad (http://www.geocaching.com/profile/default.asp?A=61905) (3/1.5) is not far from I-95 in Waterville, and you're not a real cacher until you log a DNF ... errrrr find on that. :rolleyes:

Well if the show is at the Augusta Civic Center then there are 2 right behind it on the UMA trail system,Moosetracks and Why am I here. Also one just down on the Bond Brook Rd called Turkey Buzzard that will give you a good workout with your new GPS'er.

Savage Park in Augusta as well. Did you mean Mile 252 rather than 245? If not, then add Mile 252 to your list for on the way back.

Yes, mile 252. Sorry... I am not a "number guy"

Ok I actually have to go to the civic center! But thats not where the show is. Very good Thanks! I will do the waterville one, off the I95! I like the ones at rest areas and stuff like that... know anymore? Leaving around 10, if you think of anything, you know I appriciate it all.

No prob - just wanted to make sure you had the chance to do it if you hadn't already

Old Town is a small enough town that any listed in old town would be within a couple of miles of the interstate. Stacked on Still water is right next to the interstate!!:)

I used Mapsource to create a route from Caribou to Agusta, saved it as a GPX file and then used it as a file in GSAK for arc/poly input. The resulting file was then saved. I dont know to show it here and have sent it to you as an email. I hope it helps.

Wish you could do that with Delorme Steet Atlas handheld, I need a tutorial on how do that with my setup.

Caseys Cache is just off I95 in Bangor, Hogan Rd exit. Very handy to Sams and Dennys if you're stopping at either of them.

Thanks. I did the two near the Civic Center in Augusta. Must have walked in total 1.2 miles. It was fun though.. just hot! I wasn't wearing shorts either...

Big event went on here this weekend... at the augusta civic center trails... arts and crafts? What was that all about? I tried to be sneaky and picked up some trash on the way out... :) Thanks again for your help on my trip. Two caches... it better then none... and I got to try out my new Garmin!

And it was my two caches to boot!! I'm glad you had fun... the caches may not be hard to find, but the pathway to them is really nice...

If you have waypoints shown on your GPS maps, you'll see as you go by that there are quite a few of the "rest-stop-and-grab" caches along I95 - one of which was noted above (that one and another nearby cache are in the southbound lane though).
