According to him, there is a strange bat like creature that is terrorizing some of the locals in the north-western mountains of Maine!
    Only seen at night..It looks like a giant bat..flies off with cats and small dogs! It has been known to attack deer and other creatures around the Sugarloaf mountain area!! EEEK!
    That's probably just someone on the new Sugarloaf zip line

    You head north from the campground to the Goldbrook Road, that takes maybe 10 minutes or a bit more for that part. Then you drive 16 very slow miles on a dirt road to Appleton Corner. Next you head right towards Jackman and then I'm not sure how far it is. Maybe another very slow 15 miles? But it's beautiful country. So it would take a few hours to come and go...

    There are caches though! Mariah. Appleton Corner. Waterfalls. WWII POW. If you keep going you could do Loose Moose at Spencer Rips and be on your way to getting a Eustis Caching Masters Degree! But you'd need to get your Bachelors first....

    I'm packed..completely. So I just dialed in the Eustis weather on the Weather Channel. Time for some chanting to the weather gods as it looks a little wet...maybe a lot wet. I hope not. Two wet labs in a tent is not that pleasant....even after a bunch of libations! I hope the weather gurus are wrong!

    Well, the gurus said rain today too, and heavy thunderstorms. And it was just clouds and some sun, nearly 70 degrees. Warm tomorrow too. And the "rain" is supposed to be "showers". A tenth of an inch to maybe a quarter of an inch. So don't panic the troops. Bring an electric dog dryer just in case...

    Sheesh! You've got to be kidding me! Is there such a thing?

    (I'm bringing RULost2?. And she doesn't dry cats, let alone dogs!!)

    Default Makes no difference...

    We're packed, I'm ready to leave right now, but I'll leave in the morning, try not to cache on the way up and will at our site by 10. The local weather gurus painted a better picture then the Weather Channel program I have so I'm going with mostly cloudy!!!

    I'm a little embarrassed that I haven't got my 4 year diploma yet, as this is my 3rd event and I've spent a few weeks at the Pines. I"m kinda bouncing around, grabbed all the Kennebago caches ect. I think that I'll end up putting in for my bach and masters degrees almost at the same time!

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