    (Avon "Skin-So-Soft "seems to work pretty well.)
    Or pick up some "Bens", which doesnt smell quite as pleasant but is effective too.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In the spring, bring a windbreaker, sweat shirt, medium-weight pants, sneakers, short-sleeved shirts. In late March through mid-April, you should also bring boots just in case it snows, which it will time to time. In the summer, bring shorts, a light jacket, and other loose, comfortable, and casual clothing.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen is a must, as is insect repellant -- especially if you do anything near the woods.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Sand Beach at Acadia National Park is only 50 miles away. The water is too cold for much wading or swimming, so bring sunscreen, a bathing suit, towel, sun umbrella, and anything else you prefer taking to the beach. For hiking, sunscreen and insect repellant are musts. Bring water, sunglasses, binoculars, a camera. Also, light shoes. You will be able to get by with a good pair of sneakers on most trails.

    Miscellaneous: A DeLorme gazetteer is a must when exploring Maine. You can find one at any Shaw's or Shop 'n Save supermarket, plus Irving service station. It will cost about $15, but the information is invaluable.
