    Default Your favorite time at a cache.....

    Do you have a favorite cache in Maine? Or a favorite story to tell about a cache that you went to?

    Default My favorite so far

    We got Rock Weld (GC1FXVR) this summer when the lily pads in the ponds were in bloom. This cache brings you to a very nicely manicured area that is private property open to the public. Interesting story attached to what you'll see while you're there.

    Favorite.... that's a tough one.

    Most of my favorite caches are the ones which represent what caching was originally represented as - those that take you somewhere you would not have gone otherwise. Many of these places are just off the beaten trail but far enough away you may drive by them every day. One of my early finds has stuck in my head for that reason, Ye Old Granite Quarry (GC7351) by Hot Wheels, nitrobot (2.5/3). There is another cache near there now. I have since come across many caches which meet this criteria, some maybe not so spectacular but great finds just the same because they were so close to places I have driven by on many occasions. I always try to acknowledge this in my log when I come across these locations because I would love to see more of them. That is probably the single most criteria anyone should shoot for if they want me to enjoy a cache.

    As far as favorite times caching, I've always had great time on any caching trip with Lee no matter where we have gone, and we both have had a great time the few times we have caches with others, like we have at Turkey Buzzard (GCP3Y7) by Hogmier and Son (4/4), "Gorge"ous (GCPETB) by Dave1976 (1.5/3), and Iceman (GC6248) by Guideme (2/3.5).

    Lee and I had an exhaustive but fun day doing Kenna's Canoe Adventure (GC1DMY3) by Mydogkenna (2.5/4) and Remember the River Drivers II - Leonards Mills (GC1D4XW) by EvilHomer (1.5/2) by kayak. We put in at Deans Langing, kayaked to the Kenna's Canoe Adventure cache, and then proceeded 7 miles upstream to the Leonard's Mills cache. Not the way it was designed to be done, but it made for a fun day!

    So many great caches . . . hard to pick just one.

    I tend to like the ones with a sense of history . . . or a great view.

    As I said it's hard to pick just one . . . but I think the cache that was most memorable simply because of its incredible beauty and the fact that it's off the beaten path and it seems few people know about this place is the Boot Head Cache in downeast Maine (GCK3PE) -- views of the ocean that rival those of Acadia . . . minus the tourists.

    Of course if you're looking for memorable caches . . . just go caching with Hiram357 -- you'll never know what he'll do for a cache . . . go swimming with the fishes (and beavers), destroy his vehicle attempting to climb a mountain, wade across an ice-cold stream in the Spring . . . .

    I just completed the 50 State Challenge so that one is fresh in my head. It was a great series and the hike to the last one was very fun. The culmination of almost a year of finding all 50 and then finally reaching the goal made it one of my favorite. I also really enjoyed Harris Mountain Hide-Away. My son and I had a great time trekking up to that one and really enjoyed the views. Along those same lines N1SDR's was a great cache for the views and the hike. Wow! It is tough to just pick one.

    Favorites - The ones where I have personally been challenged.........by a climb, hike or push to the limits for me..........Rangeley Celebration, Half Mile, Feeling a "Little Peaked". I loved all 6 of the crash site caches - each for their own special reason. And then of course the memories of caching with others - the Beaver Dam recently and the caches done during the ATV Event.......along with the first Eustis Event (Kennebago with the jeep).........just so many memories........and the list goes on.

    It is sort of like birthdays - which one was your favorite! Some you remember better than others. Thank you to great friends for the memories!

    You have asked two questions. My favorite cache is the 2009 Christmas cache.

    My favorite time at a cache would have to be when a group of us got together and found half mile cache. The group was great and the final was special.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    Well thanks for that. Ok, now I don't feel so bad about not pushing you off.
    That was a good time even though no smiley for me. I'll never forget that little baby going across the beaver dam!

    The baby in the pac - yes, that was a memory and I have one of my granddaughter doing in a pac to find the Rookery one too.
