    Default Moxie Falls and Angel Falls

    I will be visiting my parents in Maine next week and we mentioned the possibility of going to Moxie Falls, Angel Falls and the Portland Headlight. I was wondering if there was an easy way to find out if there are caches in the vicinity of those landmarks. If it makes life easier, I have a premium membership to www.geocaching.com. Thank you for any assistance.

    I can tell you for a fact that there are caches at each of those locations that you mentioned. If I had Brdad's macro I would post them but I don't so you'll probably have an answer shortly with the cache GC numbers. Enjoy your trip and the foliage in the Moxie and Angel Falls area should be just perfect. Keep checking back and I'm sure someone will have the info you are asking for.

    Oddly enough John, I have been working on and just finished and uploaded a new version of my Copy_To_Clip Macro. It now has the ability to list the distances from the current center point, great for threads like this.

    Output format is:

    0 miles - You Sank My Battleship! (GCB688) by brdad (4/2)
    14.47 miles - EaglEyeStash (GCGGXG) by brdad (3/3)
    16.75 miles - A mile from a halfmile (GC8D2A) by brdad (1.5/2.5)
    17.93 miles - Halfmile (GCH21C) by brdad (3/3.5)
    19.98 miles - Sounds Easy To Me (GC1VFWZ) by brdad (3.5/3)
    44.88 miles - Old 470 (GCAE12) by brdad (3/1.5)

    The macro can be obtained here.
    I will edit my first post accordingly!

    Thank you , Thank you, Thank you! I appreciate your quick responses. I am anxiously awaiting the peak foliage in those locations. By the time I get back to my upstate NY home, they will probably be peak here too. I am the lucky one, being able to view 2 peak seasons in one year.

    Thanks again, 2 days of work left after today until I will be in Maine where my heart tells me home is!

    I really like the Fort Williams/Portland Headlight caches. Definitely worth the trip.

    I found that link after I posted and checked out the ones on it. I think there were some new ones too.
