  2. April 1st, 2004 – The first day of Peter’s retirement.

  3. How did you find out about Geocaching?
  4. We already had a GPS and Peter saw a notice in the Selkirk Journal for a 2-evening Geocaching course. The geocaching.com web site was mentioned. He went to the web site and decided that he could figure this out without the course. Two days later we found Bur Oak.

  1. How did you find out about Geocaching?
  2. About 2 years ago I saw a segment about geocaching on the Discovery Channel. Then about a year ago I got my first GPSR and stumbled onto Geocaching.com.

  3. When did you start Geocaching?
  4. I started caching on Oct 31/04 Halloween. What better time to sneaking around.

  5. What is the meaning of your username?
  6. Mostly a wanna-be. I was kind of a reckless youth and it was sort of a dream of mine to be a stuntman.

  7. At the time of this survey, how many finds/hides do you have to your name?
  8. Currently I have 240 finds. Only about 10 are locationless and the rest are all legwork. I have 12 caches hidden and only 1 is disabled.

  1. How did you find out about Geocaching?
  2. I was browsing through an outdoor magazine in our local library when I came across an article about geocaching. We’re always on the lookout for interesting spots to go hiking and this looked like a good source of ideas. I looked up the Geocaching website, recognized the potential and started researching GPSrs immediately.

  3. When did you start Geocaching?
  4. We logged our first find on April 26, 2003. We actually started by going to the Assiniboine Park and looking for the Courts Cache. Of course it had been muggled. Not a great start. Next we went to Beaudry Park were we successfully located The Last of the Manitoba ENTS. We tried to find the other nearby cache, The Big Stick, but all we could find was a large pile of sawdust. Fortunately, The Big Stick was in another tree.
