    I am glad everything worked out weather wise for the event. Wish I could have made it but I had to stay back and troubleshoot and repair the bad network card in the server.

    What a great event. Sam and I loved caching. This is our third event and definitely the best so far. We left some caches undone in the area to do next year. We heard there is a different country nearby with caches in it too.

    PS
    I picked up a coin in a ewe cache. It says it is in the hands of "abnah". Was abnah at the event? I'll wait a couple days to see if she has been lost in the beautiful foliage of eustis-stratton.

    Seems everyone had a good time and I had a GREAT time! Packing today to go to Boston tomorrow, daughter has a hospital appointment. Will write more and to some of you privately when I get back, unpacked and have some free time. Thanks so much to everyone who came! See you next year, if not before.

    PS I miss Amara.....

    Thumbs up Thank you.....

    This was my favorite event. The variety of caches we could find, in some of the most beautiful places in Maine. You could paddle, hike, 4 wheel through the mud or to the top of a mountain, and as TAT showed us bike to a find as well. The food was delicious and the hall was just like home. Most of the time we hung out in the kitchen, just like home. Thanks to Jean and Stan, Dave and Holly, and the others who helped make this one event that I will be back to annually. I only hope those who didn't come, due to the forecast have learned a valuable lesson........ Listen to mapachi when he speaks about the weather in the hills of Western Maine. He was right on the money. You missed out on the best event of 2008.

    We had more fun that I could have imagined. And even with the obstacles we had to overcome to complete the challenge, we had a blast. A very special thanks to Team Richards for coming to our rescue with chainsaw in hand. Without your generosity we would not have been able to finish.

    I will be back again next year. Site #69.

    WOW!.............and I didn't have to jump in the lake!

    This was the most fun we've had in a long, long, long time! The last time I had this much fun I think I must have been doing something against the law!

    I think I have an idea what you mean! I just checked the law books and you're good, and so am I! Let the good times roll! Wish I didn't have the neck issue, MRI now in the works to get to the bottom of this. Sounds like we missed the best parts of the even, but we still had a grand time!

    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    We had such a great time. We want to thank everyone for coming up. We had so much fun we are already looking ahead to next year.

    For folks wondering how much rain came down.
    Holly's folks measure the rain at two sites, one in Stratton and one in Eustis. the total rain from Thursday through Sunday at 3:00 was just over an inch. Most of that came after 10pm and stopped by 6am.

    I'd be interested in how many miles people traveled. I know we had folks from Quebec, Calis, Massachusetts, Vermont and many other far away places.
    I am also courious how many miles were done after you got to the area in your car, boat, boots and bikes.
    Looking at my tracks and just estimating, I have 100 miles on the truck, 7 miles in the kayak and 6 miles in my boots just doing caches in the area.

    Dave I also had about 100 miles on the truck, but you got me in the kayak as I only had 4 miles in that, close to 20 miles on the bike, 4 miles walking when Tom and I so foolishly decided to walk back to the campsite with Karen from the potluck in the rain. Add to this miles and miles of good times.

    An idea for next year - can we get a big map with NA? We could all put in push pins or little flags with where we are from! If you want to do it - I would gladly start hunting for a map.
