    Cool Greetings from Bowdoin, Maine

    Hello everyone,

    Just starting this GeoCache Craze. I recently discovered using a GPSr and I am looking forward to the adventure.

    I am not new to the outdoors or to hiking and camping, but this combination of nature and high tech is creating a whole new synergy.

    I think I'll look for my first cache this afternoon. Looks like there is one just down the road. Wish me luck!<img><img>

    Thanks in advance to those who lend a helping hand to the newbies

    The only thing I know is that I don't know enough to know that I don't know what it is I should know.

    Welcome!

    If you have any questions, be sure and ask. The "regulars" in these forums have a vast lot of experience.

    I like the fact that you put "regulars" in quotation marks since there's nothing regular about many of these "regulars."

    P.S. Welcome to the forum. Feel free to ask questions . . . it's one way of learning.

    Speaking of being addicted to geocaching Jordan ,how come there are so many caches by Northwoods Explorer up your way that are still unfound? I 'll tell you if they were down this way they would have been found before the sun rose........

    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Default questions?

    Don't forget the Monday Night chat. 8PM on .....you guessed it, Monday's. We have newbies and veterans, ready to answer your questions, or address your concerns. Good Luck on your first cache.
    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.

    Talking I Did It!!!!!!!!!

    First, thanks for the welcomes.

    2nd, I logged my first find this afternoon. <img> (Lisbon Falls Fishing Park Cache by Katadin Goddess) It is jut 3/4 miles from work so I decided to swing by. It wasn't quite as easy as I thought it might be, but I learned a lot.

    The only thing I know is that I don't know enough to know that I don't know what it is I should know.
