****As stated, there is poison ivy in the area of the cache. Please take great care while searching for this cache and any cache at this time of year. *****
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 near the intersection of the Meadow Road and Route 69 in Hampden.
Parking: There is space for a few cars to pull off to the side of the road both on Meadow Road and Route 69 (Carmel Road). Route 69 is a very busy road, so please use caution.
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 parking area to the cache is roughly 50-75 feet, depending on where you choose to park.
Cache Container: The container is a small 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.
