    Talking Maine Northwoods Tread Lightly® 4x4 Cache Rally

    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    Nice job! I am going to be in Mass. that day, but this is very tempting! I need to figure out how to do both! When you live in Vacatinoland, there is just too much to do!

    We've posted that we'll attend - tentatively. We'll take the old GOCACHE Explorer, do some fishing while you tear out your oilpans on Foster's Solitude (been there, done that cache), and maybe treat Hiram to a beer or two. Sounds like a fun ride.

    (Sheesh! Sure beats these kayaking ideas that have been floating around (pun intended)! LOL! )

    Geeeze... an oversized Ford... not only will we have to bring extra chains to pull you around, but we'll have to bring chainsaws to make the road wider.... (heh, it's not that i don't like Fords... it's just that i don't like fords.... )

    I'd wager a six-pack that my Explorer is narrower than your Jeep.

    Overall width of Jeep Cherokee = 67.9" - 70.5" (depending upon trim level & year).

    '91 Exploder (first year) = 70.2"
    2006 Exploder = 73.7"

    So, I guess we'll have to get out the tape measure to settle this one fellas--could go either way!

    Well, some Fords are OK--at least we're not talking GM! Exploder is about the same width as the XJ--I have lots of experience squeezing a full size Bronco down narrow trails (and the dents and scratches to prove it).

    I thought the explorer was the equivillent of the tahoe, oversized and can't pull itself...

    AWESOME. I am definitely in on this one unless something pops up. I have a 4x4 and should be all set as long as it holds up. I have stayed at the campsite before and this is a nice cozy place. The water supply is iffy sometimes because it is not well water, it comes off the mountain. So you might want to bring some water. There is an port-a-potty on hand also and a small store. The store does not sell alcohol so if you want some drinks you will have to get them ahead of time.

    I have a suspicion that this event will not be in the area for the Tread Lightly event, but I thought some folks might want to be aware of it just in case it is in that neck of the woods . . . or in case anyone is interested in the sport.
