And now, a hello from Portland
I've had the fun of reading about caching for the past couple of years (I even found a couple of Portland caches using Google Earth). But now I've got the handheld GPS unit. Finally, I can really play (and hide some of my own).
It's great to see an active caching community up in Bangor. It gives me an excuse to travel further north.
Is there much of a treasure hunting community here as well (please, I'm not including scavenger hunts)?
North, South and everywhere in between
Whatever it is you like about geocaching you can find it somewhere in Maine. From her beautiful beaches along the coast to wide open spaces inland. A nice long walk in the woods, or a hike to above 4000'. You might even find a micro hidden in a downtown setting right next to a place you have visited many times in the past.
North, South, East or West, Maine has it all and our geocaching community is always willing to help out. In short.....we are everywhere. You just have to go out and look.
Welcome to a wonderful sport and good luck!
