Nocturnal #1, Who's that knocking at my door...?
In Maine, United States
How Geocaching Works
Parking is N 43 45.929 W 070 19.657 Place GeoCaching note on your dash. A piece of paper that just says the word "Geocacher" will work.
NOTE TO ALL GEOCACHERS: #1 YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PLACE A NOTE ON YOUR DASH FOR NIGHT CACHING (print off attachment below or write "geocacher" on paper will work); #2 YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PARK AT BLACKSTRAP PRESERVES' PARKING (Coords above), #3 NO BUSHWACHING FROM THE ROAD or using THE SNOWMOBLIE TRAIL.
Otherwise you might need to answer to the Police and the cache could be shut down... Requirements of the Land Trustees.
This is a Night Cache, placed with Land Trustee's approval. This cache can be done during the day but you will lose the effect. I will place fire tacks along the trail about 7' off ground. I highly recommend you use a high powered torch flashlight (something with 60 Lux/Lumens or more is good), as the fire tacks show up much better. When you see two fire tacks about four inches apart, it is time to head into the woods off trail (if you find 3 grouped together it is to show direction). Don't forget to bring a second and/or third flashlight and spare batteries. Eye protection is always a good idea, especially for night caching to prevent a branch to the eye.
A trail map is at the kiosk once you cross the field and just before you go into the woods, or you can print the attached map. Take the Blue trail to the right, follow fire tacks. Other caches are along the trail making this a great gas saver.
Be safe and have fun.
Please note, hunting does occur on this land, so please be sure to wear your blaze orange during Hunting Season.
CONGRATULATIONS TO HD ON BEING FTF
