    How did you guys make out for snow? When I left the house it was still snowing, but once I hit the Dixmont Hills it changed to a mist . . . right now it looks like we did pretty well with 7-8 inches of snow.

    Also . . . a reminder to me . . . from the snowmobile trails how do you get to the camping area . . . maybe Rick can clue me in as to how to get there from Newport? If my brother-in-law from CT comes up alone I'll see if I can't convince him to make the ride up north . . . if he comes up with his girlfriend it will be local riding for us since she is a newbie and isn't up to doing long rides.

    Geocaching....The use of a GPS unit to find a hidden object....Put in the co-ords and follow the arrow....thats how I get to Unity from here. There is also something called Google Earth.....that even has pictures! You could report a fire at the campsite...then follow the fire trucks. If all else fails ask Rick.

    I'm not going to be able to go, but if anyone wants to record a report, I will use it on the podcast. If you have cell service out there you can record a message at 333-8651, or if you have a recorder (check your Palm device - if you have a Zire it probably has a microphone!) you could do it and then email it to me when you get home. We're always looking for interesting stuff.

    Kathy most of us up this way are still communicating by pounding on a hollow tree with a stick . But I'm sure Tat or Maniac will have the capability to send you something for the Podcast. Wish you could be there to capture all the goings on yourself. Maybe next year.
