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: CACHE IS NOT AVAILABLE AT NIGHT. This cache is located roughly 5.5 miles out the Kennebec Road from the Main Road in Hampden. It has been placed at the entrance of a cedar mill with permission from the foreman. Due to the size and number of large wood hauling trucks and other machinery coming in and out, please make this a QUICK grab and go...hence the name. You may pull in and park in front of the cedar gate. Please pull in and park as far to the left side of the drive as you can. Do not go beyond the gate.
Parking: There is space for one car to pull off into the driveway and park. Even though the gate may be closed, there still maybe trucks that pull in.
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 natural/modified man made item near a tree.
Terrain: This cache has been rated 1.5 for terrain because there is no trail.
Distance: The distance from the parking area to the cache is roughly 15-20 feet, depending on where you choose to park.
Cache Container: The container is a medium rectangular Lock N' Lock type container.
More Information: This series has been developed in collaboration with Hollora 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.
