    No one would ever "force" you to do anything you do not wish. I have not had that pleasure but you are making me wonder - perhaps the kayaking caches would be better LOL........

    Hope you can come on over to join us.

    Bigelow mountain is nothing you should try climbing Avery Peak. That is in my opinion better then Mount Katahdin.

    Default Avery Peak

    Well, I'm glad that's settled! For entertainment at the Eustis event, everybody will climb Avery Peak. I could even put a cache there if I start now.....

    Where is Avery Peak? We are a little bit better shape than last year when we started caching. Bigelow mountain wouldn't be so bad except when you are trying to do 9 caches in Eustis in one day including the drive there and back from your home 100 miles away, a 5 to 6 hour hike takes a big chunk out of the day. There was just that one spot on the mountain, almost straight up with all the loose gravel and small boulders similar to trying to climb an escalator going the wrong way, that was tough. Oh, and my wife and I never carry water with us as over many years we have conditioned ourselves to very little fluid intake. Unfortunately, Bigelow was tougher and longer than expected and we should have had liquid with us. Thank goodness for all the blueberries at the top.

    Avery Peak is part of the Bigelow range. You might have done it. It is the peak on the Bigelow's with the fire tower still on it. The tower is all boarded up though.

    This might be a little off topic but what is the policy on bringing beer to these events? I ask because I homebrew. I was thinking of crafting a 'Useless Ale' for the event. The only problem is that I have to make 5 gals at a time and love sharing what I craft. Can't anyone help me?

    There are several here who will be glad to share with you. I'll let the others speak for themselves...........HIRAM!!

    Actually, I've just read over Hiram & WhereRWe's Beer Chat thread. Completely inane but informed. I don't think I'll have any problem finding someone to share with. Kinda cool to find there are a few home brewers here too. One question remains. What style should 'Useless Ale' be?
