This cache is part of the Maine R.O.S.E. Series and is meant to be really obvious, simple and easy. It's perfect for cachers who want a quick find, or who are not up for a physical challenge. The purpose of this series is to promote caching to everyone, and create a fun family cache experience. Some fellow cachers get discouraged by vague descriptions and caches that appear to be difficult hides. Our attempt here is to make the cacher aware of the entire situation before they attempt the cache. If you have any comments that should be added, please let us know.
Directions: This cache is located in Bangor on Valley Avenue. There is a very nice turn out and an observation platform near this cache. A previous micro cache in the area was muggled on a number of occasions. Please use stealth so this is not muggled. I am hopeful this new location will allow a grab and go which can be concealed from muggles.
Parking: There is space for a couple of cars to pull to the side of the road into a small parking area. In winter, snow may inhibit the space for cars and it may not be plowed adequately.
Difficulty: This cache has been rated 1.5 for difficulty because the cache is not in plain sight. You will need to remove the cache from a man made structure on the side of the road.
Terrain: This cache has been rated 1.5 for terrain because there is no trail.
Distance: The distance from the place to pull to the side of the road to the cache is roughly 8 - 20 feet, depending on where you choose to park.
Cache Container: The container is a round, silver painted, metal Altoids container with a magnet to hold it in place.
More Information: This series has been developed in collaboration with Cache Maine and Becket. We have each committed to hiding a dozen rose caches in our area. The release of these roses will be sporatic in hopes to have three dozen live by Valentine's Day 2007.
