    Smile Sooouuunnnds like a good day for an indoor cache.

    It's raining out, the rest of my party is under the weather, so I thought I'd test the cache puzzle solving skills of anyone else that's bored. The idea is taken from a fellow cacher who placed one similar to it some time ago. I was first to solve, but haven't ventured the 2000+ miles to find it, and it has since been archived anyhow.

    So, to "claim your find", let me know what in Maine is at the coordinates in the following puzzle. (PM me if you don't want to spoil it for others).
    And don't forget to log your DNFs

    Default Turn about is fair play...

    You can't just sit there and watch us suffer, so here's one for you to solve: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache...7-339a59303900

    Default Dnf

    Did not find the "key". I'll look again after I get some kayak work done.

    How are you doing with Crop Circles?

    Sorry, brdad, I could not find the key to this one either. I am usually pretty good at caches like this, but I must be missing something. Will play around with it some more....

    And no, TAT, I haven't had any luck on Crop Circles either!

    I have looked at that off and on since it came out, I must admit I am overlooking something...

    As a clue (Am I getting soft in my old age?) I will verify that the title of the thread contains one of the hints.

    These are both very hard puzzles you've found there! I'll admit, I'm not good at them... But a thumbs up for the creativity of those puzzles.

    Check out GCB14A and GCJN5Y. These I found while searching for possible cache finds in Hawaii. We were able to solve the 2nd one. LOL Needless to say, we were unable to attempt to find them. They were fun to solve though and sorely regret not trying harder to locate any more than we did.

    Default Well...

    Put me down for another dns. And, another dns for the one I suggested. Too much thinking, or maybe too little!

    Ok, you guys need to figure this out or you'll never get my next cache.

    Check the logs and hints on the following cache and see if that helps.

    Also, try cutting and pasting the letters into notepad or similar program so the letters all use a fixed width font (So they all line up in nice little rows/columns.
