    Some local orgs run a contest with many categories, similar to the "Best Of" contests for restaurants. For example, Most Scenic, Most Challenging Climb, Best Micro, etc were some of the categories. This kind of contest can help the visitor find just the cache they're looking for.

    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    There really are only two caches in Maine. And only a handful in NE.

    That's almost word-for-word exactly what I thought when I first saw the site about three months ago

    Just think... If you placed 2 caches you could double the number of terracaches in Maine.

    Default Lets Do Our Own Rating / Category System

    I'd like to follow up on TAT's idea of a contest with many different "Best of" categories. We could post the rankings here on the the geocachingmaine site.

    Or, look at this link for what cachers in Philly have done to provide "tours" of their city:

    http://www.geocities.com/pageocacher...ls/philly.html

    Seems to me that we Maine Geocachers would be in an excellent position to something similar for our home areas; you know, as a service to our beloved summer cachers from out of state. Again, the "tours" could be posted on this site.

    Also, you can use the bookmarking feature of the GC site to create your own lists of memorable caches. These listings get put right on the cache page (if you allow that) so anyone looking up the cache can see that it belongs to so-and-so's "Most Kayakable" list or on someone else's "Best Views". I think I'm going to start doing this as a way to journal my favorite hunts with my 4 year old son. It won't be too long before they'll all start to blend together, but we've had some great adventures already (usually because dear old dad didn't really read the description that closely). Anyway, you know whom you respect and if you saw a cache on Gob-ler's "Best of LA" list, wouldn't you choose it if you had only a limited time in that area?
