    Question GRC's

    I took a few weeks off. (due to my well documented dislike of winter. Only 22 years left 'till retirement!) and I got the geobug bad this weekend. So I went on a search for some nice, easy guard rail caches. I know that there are those who poo poo GRC's as nothing more than a numbers booster, but I really needed to cache. I'm not a fan of digging in snow and still have not found the joy of snowshoeing (not a slam on snowshoers, my kids are not thrilled with the idea, ergo..) So I went on the website to find a few png's. I do like the challange of micro's and smaller hides. Does anyone have suggestions for a cluster of these type of caches that might be accessable before the next blizzard comes rolling along? While I'm at it, does anyone know of a winter accessable TB hotel? I still have a few that I would like to place without wintering over....

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

    Default Topsham/Brunswick

    These are a little south of you, but winter friendly.

    A Cache in Honor of AJ our Cache Dog by Team Teebow (GCV5KP): Not a TB but the size is good and should be accessible at the moment.

    “Downtown / Main Street USA: Topsham, Maine” by Seeblue (GC1F756): Presents a great challenge.

    101 Dalmations #36 (GUARD DOG) by Team Teebow (GCW2AF): Can park within inches.

    Celestial Dollars / My Maine Store by Seeblue (GC1F84C) and Milling Around by Mama Doolittle (GC1JBHZ): Can park within feet of these.

    Milling around in Brunswick by Doolittles (GC1JHFJ): Can make a TB drop here as well.

    I share your "winter" views.......come on April!

    What do the different colors mean?

    I had the bug today too, but didn't get out to do any. What I hate more than the snowbanks, is the dark descending at 4:00. I have plenty of spare time right now before dinner to cache while everyone else is watching football or Hannah Montana but alas, it is getting dark. By the time I get anywhere, it's too dark to find anything!

    We had a birthday party to go to or else I would have been south finding things today, the temperature was perfect! The party was fun at least, at McSeagull's where Dani and the Tribesmen were playing! I hadn't heard that band since UMaine about 15 years ago! They were as good as I barely remember from Bumstock! Anyone else barely remember Bumstock??? lol

    Sadly, I remember the cabins!
    The farmer gave permission to place the cache in the field, but the bull charges.

    Default Winter Caches

    Check out all the GRC's that Shuman Road Searchers have put out. If you use Brooks as a center point, you'll see a bunch.

    I put out 5 winter friendly caches yesterday while in route to Camden, the last one on the waterfront. Take Route 3 East from China, then 173 in Liberty to 52 in Lincolnville to Camden. None are GRC's, but all are winter friendly and you can park within 100 feet of all of them.



    Does anyone have suggestions for a cluster of these type of caches that might be accessable before the next blizzard comes rolling along?
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.
