    Adding a few new spikes now as we speak! How do I get the fresh ones to rust up nice and brown in a hurry? :P I also need a new layer of barbed wire too.

    Where the hell is that thing?

I gave her my e-mail, this site's web address (she said he had a few questions) and then assured her that it was OK since there are adults that do the very same thing . . . and added that I thought it was pretty commendable that he wanted to do the right thing.
    I get a chance to work with kids everyday at Messalonskee High School. We have almost 900 kids and out of that 840 are just awesome. You can imagine what the other 40+ can be like.

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    Do you take the kids from school caching. We are working on an awesome project to get the kids out doing this stuff

    My wife (who teaches Chemistry at MHS) and I have batted around the idea of a cache for her homeroom kids. There is a nice series of trails in behind the high school that would be perfect. The greedy side of me is also thinking of placing a night cache in the same area. I have seen a few classes in the Brewer area place caches and check on them for class projects. So the idea is out there. One of the schools adventure clubs have gone hiking along the Messalonskee stream trail in town and grabbed the 7 caches there, and I just discovered that one of our math teachers and I traded FTF's this year. (Shapoopok) I think that we are all going to brainstorm over the winter and try to take some students on a hike/cache run in the spring.

    I am taking my Girl Scout troop hiking and caching after a hay ride and pumpkin lesson at Wolfe's Neck Farm in Freeport in October. Both my co-leader and I are crazy for caching and we want to take the opportunity to find those caches and show the girls too! Hopefully, they will like it.

    Hey Lois-Ann....... You can place a film canister, ammo can, anything, and when it disappears, I'm sure it's disappointing. But the one you're talking about was one you put quite a bit of effort into, very creative. What a shame. And it's not like you can put up a poster in the town office that says "Have you seen this cache?" Hopefully it won't happen again.

    It would be funny to see a "missing" poster and all the muggles scratching thier heads wondering what was up.

    Why wait til spring? Fall is one of the best times to go caching,no bugs,very little leaf cover and great weather. Now is the time to get them interested. JMO.

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    We've had our first frost, but there were still a LOT of bugs out there today while I was cutting firewood. Do the aligators and rattlesnakes hibernate in the winter down there, Haffy?
