Cache of the Month - November 2009

Tupper's Titanic Treasure

Tupper's Titanic

The idea behind Tupper's Titanic Treasure began years ago when we cached in Halifax, Nova Scotia and found a Titanic cache in a graveyard. We fixed the cache up and have watched it since. It is still active. We soon researched Manitoba connections and found a man buried in Manitoba who had died in the disaster and hid a cache nearby: a puzzle cache hidden in Neepawa. Then one MBGA Pub Night, Dani started mentioning a story of an ancestor that she thought I should pass along to Riley (Joker 2), a Titanic Fanatic. I researched for truth in the midst of fiction for Dani and combined two of my great loves, geocaching and genealogy = geneacacheology. Dani has many other colorful ancestors which would be amazing to feature as caches as well. We are in the midst of researching one or two more Manitoba Titanic connections and planning caches for the distant future. We hope, in the dead of winter, cachers from near and abroad will take the time to research this one and find it in Spring/Summer. Winter will make it somewhat inaccessible. --1Queenand4Jokers

Cacher of the Month - November 2009

Yey... it's improvising time again. trag_cachers - what can I say about trag_cachers? Really...what can I say about trag_cachers? Well it was off to the profile page again. I am not sure if Mr. T is aware that a lot of us have a hard time looking at profile pictures that are only 1cm tall. Dragging out the magnifying glass, I must assume the 100 is the number of the caches they found or it could be a ransom amount for the kid. Now the light goes on - g - traG, part of his entourage. OK he is a family man. Maybe the 100 is the number of the kid. Wow that is a big family.

Well that is enough from my imagination. I know Mr.T is a huge Bomber fan. ( I wonder if trag_cachers are fans?) Too bad the Bombers have such a (insert negative adjective) coach. (But that is a whole new web page) I can see that this family enjoys caching and we will see more them (if they use a bigger profile pic) in the near future. Congrats trag_cachers for being the Cacher of the Month.
