A geocacher "from away" took a canoe trip to the Cunliffe Islands and dropped off a plastic bag containing a slip of paper for a log plus travel bug TBGYE9. Since I was unable to publish the cache page, the travel bug is now stuck at N 46 43.517 W 069 22.062.

If anyone goes near that location, I'm sure the travel bug owner would be happy to see it picked up and put back into circulation. The trash - err, cache should be picked up as well.

Thank you.

I was up that direction on Labor Day this year and I was still a long way from that location. It will have to be someone whose running the Allagash River to retrieve that one. If the bears and racoons don't get it first.

Your going to have a problem with this one. Just because we live in Maine does not mean we all get out in nowhere land that much. This one is literally located in the middle of nowhere. I hate to say this but I think this one will be stuck there for a long time. It might as well as be written off.

It's not as bad as it looks fellas, I put the coords into my Geocaching Command Center (my laptop with fancy mapping and GPS progs) and found some roads getting within 2 miles of the abandoned TB. I for one propose a "Search & Rescue" I plan on doing a cache on Katahdin and a few around Piscataquis County,(Oct 1st and 2nd) so that'll put me in the area. I don't want to venture that far into the woods by myself though. So if someone else wants to do a weekend adventure I'll be more than willing to go in search of the lost TB.

another thought I just had... if that TB isn't taken out before november, you can probably count on it being gone with the snow.

Hiram357
09-24-2005, 09:40 PM
Well ATTroll is unable to join me in the journey, so if there is anyone else willing to endure a long journey by jeep then by foot that wants to join in just say so.
*note: by looking at the topo and sat maps this is not going to be an easy journey by land, apparently these guys took a guided trip down the alagash and stayed near a campsite that is marked on page 61 of the atlas

Wouldn't it be easier to wait till winter and snowsled to it.(RIck)??if i had a sled yeah, but i don't so no, i've got snow shoes, but someone would have to be a glutton for punishment to do that. i've found roads on maps that get very close to a campsite that i believe that stopped at, and is possibly where they hid the TB so it shouldnt be difficult (depending how the roads are) but the hiking part is questionable.
And... if the snow is deep enough to sled on, how ya gunna find the TB?

another thought about the sleds... i've been on a few trail breaking rides and it's not too fun, unless you have a sled wider than the women up that way it could take days to get that far. it would be much easier (and safer) to get it before the snow falls

attroll
09-24-2005, 10:47 PM
Even if you had a sled it would be very hard to pin point a cache under the snow. We don't even know what it is hidden in.

Someone will have to write to GPSFUN to get clarification ion this. It says dropped off in a plastic bag. Does that mean it is in a container in a plastic bag or just sitting in a hiding spot in a plastic bag? I would write GPSFUN but I an packing up and heading out for a week in about 1 1/2 hours.

Wow! Sounds like quite a challenge! Kinda makes me wish I was (a) retired and (b) living in Maine again. I will be arriving in Maine Oct 1st for a small family reunion in Farmington, then going to the county, but won't have the free time to aid in the search. I will be following this adventure of the lost TB though. Bravo! to you Hiram357 for taking on the challenge!

Yeah, I just don't believe somebody should lose a travel bug just because some dingbat thinks it'd be a good idea to drop it off where nobody is ever going to get to it. And it's also a bad idea to leave something like that out there where it could be damaging to an unsuspecting animal thinking that it's food. And if it was my TB that was irresponsibly placed I would hope that someone else would go out of their way to rescue it for me. Besides I'll be getting my new Garmin Foretrex in about 3 days and I really wanna see what it can do (it's got a quadrahelix antenna) and it gives me an excuse to go bushwhackin and fourwheelin with the Jeep. Which as an added note still has an empty co-pilot seat.

Can I send you a list of my TB's that have disappeared? Sounds like you have persistence and stealth well beyond mine that would perhaps give them a second chance in their TB life. It is always disappointing when they disappear. I have had a few that landed amongst the missing nearly immediately - either the cache disappeared altogether or the TB got removed and never logged. And some that traveled a bit and then disappeared. And I even have one that resurfaced and has traveled far. You just never know.

I just had a TB resurface after having been "missing" for over a year. Great feeling, since we get a great deal of pleasure out of tracing our bugs. (and of helping other bugs towards theri goal.)

I guess if it is in a plastic bag there won't be need for my metal detector.
You might want to get in touch with techscout in Aroostook. She may or may not be able to help you with this. I'm guessing she is going to know something about the area that we may not know. Also, she may know someone else who might be willing to trek it with you.

tat
09-26-2005, 06:48 PM
I haven't done the Allagash yet, so I can only say what I see on my map.

There is a road fairly close to the cache, but it looks like access to the river would be rather steep. There is not likely to be any trail. The terrain is probably very thick brush because the wilderness waterway has a buffer zone to hide timber harvesting as much as posible.

The cache is on an island. The water appears to be rather fast, judging by the width reported on the map.

Don't expect anyone to be quick to the rescue if anything goes wrong.

I like the Kayak Kache idea, but I bet this is a bit more time consuming than most can commit to.

travel bugs turn up missing everyday. I could see a SAR if the bug was more local. However this will be at least an all day adventure. Why is this one any different??

He said that the Cacher was "from away" so I would guess that he did not approve it cause there is no local person to maintain it.

Geocaching is not permitted anywhere in the Allagash Wilderness Waterway.

This is not the first time a Geocacher has violated their rules. By removing the "geo-trash", we can prove that Geocachers are responsible.

In this case we need to also consider how much damage would be done by bushwacking to the site and putting search and rescue people at risk if something goes wrong. Maybe there is a trail, maybe not. The river may be low enough now to cross easily. The only way to know is to go or ask someone.

Running the Allagash is (I think) a minimum week long adventure. There are not many "sanctioned" launches.

t_webb
10-01-2005, 06:45 PM
Okay - I admit it - I am the complete idiot that messed up this TB. I screwed up - it was kind of a last minute decision and what else can I say but I'm sorry. I'm new to geocaching - I failed on this one, etc, etc, etc. I just don't want everyone to yell at me and lecture me about it - I now know that this was a BIG MISTAKE. Now that we have that out of the way, rescuing the TB will totally make my day.

Here is more info for anyone that is interested in looking for this guy.

- On cunliffe island. Anyone going down the Allagash will pass this island and it also has a campsite on it.

- The TB tag is attached to a 3-headed plastic dog (not my idea - it came w/ the TB). This dog is about 8 inches long and 6 inches tall. It weighs a far amount (for a TB) and will not blow away.

- It is in a clear plastic bag.

- There is a very short trail once you get to the campsite - once you follow that you will come to a clearing w/ some downed trees and it is laying under one of the trees. It is covered up a bit, but not completely. The walk from the campsite isn't more than a minute or two.

- I think there are a few close roads, but w/o a map I can't say for sure.

That's about all the info I have. Again - I completely realize that I messed up on this one and if you can rescue the TB you'll be a hero.

Thanks,

Ty

And now to defend the opposite sex . . . at least in my wife's case . . . she's actually pretty low maintenance . . . in fact I'm the one with the more "extravagant" tastes as I'm the one who likes the snowmobile, ATV, GPSr, computer, etc.

And in all honesty she is a real worker . . . but then again someone in the family has to do some honest work . . . I work for the City after all . . . it could be worse though . . . I could work for the State.

And this is why I always wait for the groomer to pass through or at the very least wait for a few others to break trail before I go out . . . I learned that the hard way a few years ago after getting stuck three or four times and spending countless hours unsticking myself.

Yes, there was a prom queen there (let me live my fantasy). Oh there were a lot of other things going on, but we said, "What happens in the Allagash, stays in the Allagash!" I do believe Stephen King would have found lots of material....

That was one of the best adventure stories I've read in a long time....and to think it was a "real life adventure" to boot!!! Since I can't do those kinds of things anymore, it was fun for me to be able to share the adventure with you in words and pictures. Thank you!

The final chapter of the adventure is a slideshow of some of the incredible sights along the way home. I want to write an epilogue, giving some history and some insights of this unique place. It may take more than a few days.

Great story, great pics . . . sounds like a good time was had by all.

After reading this it almost made me want to go put an illegal cache and TB somewhere else in Maine just so I could read all about the Rescue Rangers 2: The Sequel. :)

It's hard to believe that it was just over a year ago that I met a bunch of strangers at one of my caches who convinced me to go to an event with them. I have had such a good time with all the people I have met. The Allagash adventure cannot be totally described in writing. I only hope that the Rescue Rangers get together again for a rescue (we'll make one up, if we have to). ATroll was the host of my first event and we got to tackle the Grafton Loop with "Gypsy" last weekend. You're truly a great bunch of people.Thanks.

The Epilogue is finally posted. The opinions are not mine nor that of Geocaching Maine or any other one person unless they multiple personalities. :)
