    more dangers of the game

    So, in my on-going attempt to find my first actual cache I took the GPS to Brooklyn with me last week. Talked up the game to my grandkids ages 4 and 5; they wanted to play, of course. I did a little...

    Machias is so great- a fun earthcache

    I think I've always liked Benchmarks (even when I didn't know what they were called) for the same reasons that brdad doesn't like them so well. I treasure the idea that an object had some purpose or...

    right- I don't assume I found it

    But I did find the virtual cache (I guess that's what it is) across the road. Haven't logged it yet. It requires answering two questions and I'm pondering them. One is a guess-timate on the depth of...

    Benchmarks- off-topic at Mainegeo?

    Is the subject of Benchmarks considered at mainegeocaching? Or is it not appropriate for discussion on this site. I know that the Geocaching.com has a place for it.
