    Default Greetings from "DownEast"

    Hey Folks:

    Just found this site a few days ago thru the "New England" forum.. Trolled a few posts & figured I may as well jump in & say Howdy!!

    My name is Jon & I live in in Machias. Been into Geocaching for some time but don't get to go out much. I am the keeper of the "Roque Rocks" cache (GC274C).

    Other hobbies are acoustic guitar, amateur radio & about any outdoor activity.

    Looking fwd to chatting with you all. Happy caching.

    Welcome to the forum JW! I am a bit further east than downeast!
    I think I'm headed to Machias this week sometime.

    Great bunch of people here to hang out with. Enjoy the forum.

    Welcome! Is your name a Jeep reference????
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    Did I hear someone say ROADTRIP!! Welcome to the site. Glad that you found us. Can't wait to get to that part of the state and grab a few caches. I'll bring my navigator so I don't get lost.
    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    Hi JW,
    You mention ham radio as another hobby. Caching and hamming seem to go together! I am WM1C. My husband is W1KX. Nice to see you here. Your call???

    Thanks again for the warm welcome folks... It's nice to find a decent board of geocachers based here in Maine. I've been the gauntlet of forums.. the good, the bad & the downright ugly!! Didn't have fun so didn't stick around... the ole adage of "grabbin yer toys & headin to new grounds".

    Yes Hiram... I've hoisted a few "oilcans" but still a different reference..LOL

    becket.. Thanx for checkin out the cache... it's near where I lived years ago.

    Team2Hunt.. C'mon down.. we got a cheap motel for an overnighter or if yer into camping I got a 30 acre remote lot yer welcome to use or a lawn here in town if ya want to listen to the traffic all night..lol

    Looks like a great board here folks.. Glad I joined up.

    ETA.. Hey Sallywag.. I'm a common item on the KQ1L linked system.. Give me a shout.
