Either Maniac or BRDad would be more than happy to show you the ropes -- definitely take them up on their offer to help . . . and then there's others in the area as well (but I don't want to "volunteer" them without their consent! )

I do want to add one thing though . . . as BrDad mentioned, if you take something you should replace it with something of equal or greater value. You may also (as he said) put something in without taking something out. You may also elect to not take or put anything at all in which case most folks log "TNLN" -- Took Nothing, Left Nothing and sometimes they'll add "SL" -- Signed Log. As BrDad mentioned you may take or leave a TB without trading.
Once you start to get a feel for this game you'll also discover signature items (items which geocachers leave as their "calling card") which you may take without placing something in the cache (at least that is my understanding).
Again, if you have questions ask away . . . and welcome to geocachingmaine.org.
