    Ah . . . must have been one of the first ladders that I placed on Deer Isle. My "records" still show that there are still a number of ladders in those caches still . . . of course folks may have taken one and not recorded it in the logs. Unfortunately, I don't see these ladders becoming valued collector items anytime soon.

    Sure, sure rub it in . . . maybe that's the secret though, I must have a child-like mind and curiosity . . . hmmmm, hey Hiram I need your help, want to go geocaching on a bridge . . . oh wait a minute, you found that one already . . . this definitely explains things.

    I think I have never yet met a geocacher that I didn't like . . . it was good to meet you as well . . . and combining geocaching and ATVing had to be a plus.

    Incidentally, you may have noticed that I threw on a photo of you here on this site!

    And I assume you forgive me for dragging you out in front of the WABI cameras???

    The feeling is mutual -- you two are (in the Maine vernacular) "good people." I can't wait until the 2007 Tread Lightly event.

    Now about making the trip down to find some of my caches . . . In another week or so the leaves down my way will be absolutely brilliant so I would highly encourage you two to come down on a nice, crisp and sunny Saturday or Sunday to check out the foliage, find some great caches (there are lots of them in the Greater Unity Area and the majority of them are by other geocachers) and of course try out the pizza at the Unity House of Pizza.

    Thanks for noticing . . . to me being a "good" geocacher means giving as well as receiving which is why I've tried to put out a cache for every 25 or so found caches -- something that I started to do when I started out caching . . . a feat which gets more and more difficult as time progresses due to the number of caches that need to be maintained, trying to find new places for caches in the area, etc.


    Coming up with new hides and cache ideas continues to be just as fun for me as finding the caches . . . and to tell the truth there is no higher praise than to hear the veteran geocachers tell me how much they liked a particular cache or how they had to really think it out before finding it . . . with the exception of poor TRF who nearly always seems to be the first to find the caches that I have messed up the coords on . . . I still feel bad about the Thomas Luce cache . . . and the Multi in a Mile and a Half . . . and . . . . well you get the idea.
