What's up with the county cachers anyway?, Northwoods Explorer still has 3 unfound caches from the 26th of November. If those were down here they would have been found within the hour of posting.:D

How about Big Rock Family Trail by Northwoods Explorer? It was hidden on 9/14/05 and no one has found it yet. It looks like it time for someone to get busy and log some FTFs.

I found my first 75 caches in the snow, It wasn't that much harder and there was no black flies or muggles

We've "found" several caches in winter that I couldn't open - they were frozen in! LOL! One was an ammo can that was in ice up to the lid. I tried chopping, but...

(We didn't claim them, either...)

And remember, now that geocaching.com has terrain icons in the pockey query page, you can do a search for caches that are "winter available" (and take your chances!).

:D :D :D

Perseverance is what it takes. I had 3 dnf of the winter last year. I'm not saying that it was easy. I had alot of wet gloves and cold hands. I think that the "3 1/2'" of snow that they have in the county may make it a little tough but I'm sure I'll make it. I'll tell the little woman where and when I'll be back so that she can send the rescue dogs if I get caught in an avalanche or snowed in.

Besides I lived in the county for three years and got winter harden and learned that in county lingo an inch equals a foot.:p

You gotta keep in minde, 4 feet of snow to county folk is 4 inches of snow to those of us in the realm of reality.

haha, i do believe youre right Tat, I have yet to be impressed by a Maine winter, in the northern or southern part of it, all i ever see about maine winters are the stories!! ive taken numerous trips up north just to see these 10 ft piles of snow (that only exist in the wal-mart parking lots) and i am usually disapoointed to find out that the snow depths are over exaggerated.

They don't have crap for snow. Do you think if they had four feet of snow I would be sitting at my computer typing this right now.

ooooh - I don't know about that - when I was a child we walked 10 miles in our bare feet in the snow to bring a 5 cent returnable bottle to the store so that we could purchase the 3D glasses when we went to the city for our annual visit to the movie theatre

i dunno, i went out barefoot the last couple of days to get the mail.
i think the northerners just have to overexaggerate to make it seem like they live in some sort of remote area of the world so that they can trick their minds into thinking that northern maine is the place to be.... :rolleyes:

We have 1600 miles of trail here in the county, that dont make sense. We only groom though when its time too, not when we have... oh 4" of snow on the ground!:cool:

Well I hate to admit it . . . but Attroll is right . . . last few winters most of the early season storms were hitting in the southwestern portions of the State. That said . . . my first ride of the year last year was in early to mid January in the County . . . but it was way up in the crown around Frenchville-Fort Kent way.

However, start spreading the word about the snow conditions being lousy in the county so when I come up there will be more wide open trails and the rest of the folks will be riding bumper to bumper in western Maine! :)
