    Default Another Newbie

    Thanks for the welcome, Haffy! Yeah, I'm into it so look out Maine, I'll go for a lot of 'em as you will see. Di and I like hiking and climbing and I'm pleased to see a bunch of caches in "high" places. We're headed to Florida for a week over the New Year's week and I see warnings about snakes and gators! Not a chance I'll chase those down. Yeah, I'm an attorney (Not Joe Bornstein!) but tv is for news, comedy, Red Sox and Patriots. Maybe we should start a geocaching network? Would be better than a lot of the crap of the tube today. Anyway, thanks for the welcome. I guess I'm "into it" with over 100 caches the first month. Not sure if the snow will slow me down bit I doubt it.

    Default Welcome....

    Glad you found us. And yes there are several caches in the area that you will have to hike to.
    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    The Geocaching reality show! That's got to be better than the show where they go around the world solving riddles...

    Cool

    Great to have another cacher! Hiram357 and I are living in Waterville right now too, and have a few caches out, though most are under snow. There's a group of us that enjoy winter outdoors and snowshoe or cross country ski to caches! Keep your eyes open in the forum for gatherings, and feel free to plan your own!

    And then there's little ol' Unity (or at least the Unity area) which is only a hop, skip and jump away from Waterville and all that "congestion" (plus there's always the Unity House of Pizza -- a favorite of geocachers world-wide -- well, at least a favorite of some local geocachers) . . . right now on the top of my head I can think of one or two caches of mine that would not require digging in the snow.

    In any case, welcome dubord207 . . . nice to have you here. I assume that was you that commented on the Morning Sentinel site the other day? And Lord forgive me for this one, but I can't help myself . . . gotta go Joe Bornstein for a minute . . . BOINNNNGGGGG!

    Default From Firefighter to Firefighter

    Thanks for Welcome, and yes that was me blogging in at the Sentinel. Generally I try and stay out of politics, but every so often some of these folks can force a few comments out of my keypad. I've been to a lot of caches that you folks have visited. I took the Firefighter coin out of the crazy-make-your-eyes cross-eyed cache that Haffy put in the back of the Perkins Bird Sanctuary at Colby. Was a firefighter for Waterville for 21 years, 15 as Capt. of Engine 2. Lots of friends/brothers we keep forever and even more stories. Though retired, I still have my turnout gear and I will respond toi something really big and crazy. The fire at the Colby fieldhouse, for example. Anyway, really enjoying this new hobby and I can see there are a lot of high quality players. Look forward to meeting you and my best to you and yours over the Christmas holiday. Dan
