    Remember, half the statues on Easter Isle were covered at one time, the city of Pompeii was covered, some of the pyramids were covered, and many other examples. If they were not uncovered by someone, they would never be seen with awe today by many people.

    This is certainly a spot worth noting. I think you could use some help to be sure nothing is lost or damaged in the process. The Maine Folklife Center in Orono may be a good start. Contact Pauleena.MacDougall@umit.maine.edu They may even be able to tell you more about it.

    Thanks a lot. I'll give it a try.

    I think it's a pretty safe bet that if you place the cache, some lovely tourist is going to peel back the moss. So I'm glad you're consulting them on it. What the heck, they may want it peeled, and I know lots of landscapers who would be thrilled to acquire a big hunk of moss. So you may end up placing the cache after all.

    find the compass and the moss still lives, that'd be a happy ending

    And now man has been demoted to yet another level - the level right below moss?

    I have moss growing on my front walkway, do I have to move my door now?

    Dave, first you need to seek a permit from the DEP, then you have to put your intentions in front of a commitee, technically the moss was there first, so you should ultimately move your walkway, just make sure you don't put it on the ground again.

    If only the compass and moss were on my little plot of land.
    Moss...what moss......I never saw any moss.

    Anyway.....hopefully this will work out. I would like to tell the story, but maybe it is not meant to told. I'll look into it further and let everyone know if I hear anything.

    I wonder.... if you stand on top of the moss, over the compass, will you get this overwhelming urge to turn facing north?
