    Default Our 100th Find

    Trick came home a few months ago and told me about geocaching after a hike with some coworkers from LL Bean. It sounded interesting and I was amazed when I saw how many caches there were so close to our house in Freeport. We decided to give it a try and were instantly hooked!

    I've been obsessed with all things geocaching since then. I've listened to the podcasts from all over, read all the forums and feel so lucky to have started caching in Maine. The community here has been wonderful. Many of you have reached out to welcome us and and all have sent thoughtful and patient responses to my emails. People have been friendly and forthcoming in the chat sessions I've joined/taken over and when I put out a request for the back Maine Geocoins on this site, someone sent me one (and would accept no money) to begin my new collection.

    Your caches have introduced us to new people, taught us some local history, and brought us to places we never would have seen otherwise. When I've looked for caches near my family's home out of state, I'm reminded how great the caches here are. It is obvious the amount of time and energy that you put into placing quality caches for others to find.

    Our first 100 caches have been memorable and what I hope is just the beginning of a long and happy caching career. Thank you one and all!

    Congrats! It took me a little longer to find my first 100 (14 months or so) I found the next 100 in a little under a month and a half later. Many of those caches come from around Freeport and that is a wonderfull area to cache in. (it helps that I bought my GPS from DeLorme) Enjoy the addiction!!

    Thumbs up Glad you are enjoying it.

    In the 5 years I have cached I can say I have met so many wonderful people, been places I never would have gone, and done things I never would have done. To some this is a way of life, and to some it's a silly waste of time. Caching is what you make of it. That's what makes it such a great hobby, sport, pastime, etc. Welcome again to Geocaching and GC Maine.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    Default First 100!

    It wasn't that long ago that we found our first 100 and a lot of the fine folks on this site mentioned how addicting the game can be. Well... sounds like all the "warning signs" are in play for you two so welcome to the addiction and now on to 500!

    Life is a silly waste of time for the majority of us, so spending it geocaching makes perfect sense. This sport offers everything to it's players from a simple game of hide-n-seek to full blown involvement in geocaching events, community projects and personal causes. Unlike most games there are no rules, no quota's to meet, a player is left to play the game as he or she choices. Having found your first hundred caches is a important milestone and means you are hopelessly hooked. Congatulations.

    Congratulations on find number 100! A great start in a great hobby.

    There is a phrase that has been coined that really applies to Geocaching.

    It's "not all about the numbers" and that is very true. Make sure you meet the other cachers in the community. Geocachers are some of the finest people you will ever meet.

    Cache on!
    I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!

    Way to go! It's a great feeling, isn't it? There are geocaches everywhere, in all shapes and sizes, and the more you find the more savvy you become at the possible ways to hide them. But there's always that feeling of victory each time you make a find. Annnnnd......when you hide your own first cache that one becomes special as well. See you out on the trail......!
