Geocache Description:

Olin Richardson lived in Orrington Maine. The location of his homestead is part of Town of Orrington Conservation Lands. The Orrington Conservation Commission has graciously allowed caching on their public lands. Please respect them. CITO if possible and Carry In - Carry Out! Thank You!

Located on the Olin Richardson Tract, this cache is a well camoed, large pill container. It is big enough for pins and tiny stuff but nothing big. BYOP (Bring Your Own Pencil or Pen!!!!) The views - depending on the time of year and weather - can be outstanding. The cache hide should be easy - it is high and winter accessible (short children will need parent's help) and the terrain rating (which may be high) is based upon the slope which is a rolling field and may not be mowed in the later summer.

This location is very child friendly. It is part of Orrington public lands with an informational plaque, trail map, picnic table, benches, large rolling fields, apple and other trees, flora, fauna, animals, trails and great views depending upon the weather. Bring a picnic, the family and enjoy a day and find a cache. During bug season this may not be your favorite place - please plan accordingly.

A word about hunting season and the winter - the side of the road the cache is located on is open to hunting - the other side is a game preserve. Be mindful of this if seeking the cache "in season". Also, the snow may be very deep in the winter and a snowmobile trail is nearly - be cautious to cover your tracks if seeking during this time.

Lastly - this container is larger pill bottle, well camoed. It has been covered with natures camo too - please replace as found or better.

The Town of Orrington welcomes cachers to their public lands and hopes you enjoy your visit to our Town. We have a Dunkin' Donut in town and I believe there is WiFi. Bring your laptop and log your Orrington finds right here in town!

Here is the local weather!
