    Thumbs down UPDATE.......Dateline Waterbury,VT

    OK so I got an email back from the cache owner. Says it's been like that for awhile. Says "Yeah the stone you need is fine". So what the heck, I hate DNF's so back I go. Well! Kathie and Mike decide not to go in again. I go alone. No problem, cloudy, light drizzle falling. I search and search and search for the grave of Mr Basset. No luck, again. So I go and peer down into the open grave and try to read the stone in the bottom. I say,"What the hell, what's the worse that could happen". I get a stout stick, and climb into the hole. All six feet deep of a hole. I now have to bend down to brush away the dirt and leaves covering the wording. I get his death date, 1853. I scamper back out. Look at my PDA and see I needed his age in years, months, and days! OK, so back into the ground I go. Did I mention it was rainy and dark. So now I see he was 93 years, and 25 days. I can't read the months because that side is stuck in the dirt. I try to brush it away with my foot. No luck. Now I get this weird thought. What if this caves in! Oh great, I get a used grave. So I climb back out and see where someone had burned a candle on the next stone over. All set and I'm outta there. DNF's aren't so bad after all.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    Default OK Let's have a show of hands

    Did anyone else not know what that meant? I really didn't want to post that, not that I'm into it myself. It's just another level of twisted. Hiram, I'll PM you.
    Happy Trails!

    Color me confused as well . . . I guess Hiram and I must be pretty naive or something.

    Well I wish someone would clue me in to what may have been happening -- send me a PM or something. I know curiosity killed the cat . . . but then again I'm no cat so I'm a mite curious.

    OK. HI my name is Travis. Im new to GC and to Maine and to this forum.
    I know that im bringing up a old thread but this sounds like a great adventure and not knowing the results is killing me.
    Will you PM me the cache so I can go see this for myself? Can you also PM me the meaning of the burnt candle on the grave?
    I have a Jeep wrangler so there is room for 1 more if anyone is up for a trip. (back seat is gone).
