Cache of the Month – June 2011

Cacheaholic Anonymous - Hwy 75 Northbound

Cacheaholic Anonymous was designed in Photoshop by the Queen and built by Joker 1. It was based originally on an image we saw of Peter of Peter and Gloria. They were a pair of cachers who we met early in the game whom we have a lot of respect for both as finders and hiders. We thought this would be a fun way for kids to pose for pictures since many of our hides we preferred not to have photographed as spoilers. We have gotten a kick out of folks finding the obvious and not the actual cache itself. We enjoyed placing it near the highway with a set up so cachers could stop and find 3 from the same location. This is the type of caching we enjoy while travelling. We had never seen this type of design for an actual cache but posed at some of these in the Maritimes at theme parks etc. for family pictures during our first major caching expedition.
We have been surprised that flood waters have never touched this cache so obviously it is on an interesting ridge of land.

Cacher of the Month - June 2011

MissionMode

MissionMode
MissionMode


I remember the first time I had met MissionMode. It was at the 2009 Holiday Event that the MBGA hosts each year. I was fascinated in the fact that he cached with a Delorme unit. As far as I have seen, he was the only Manitoban at the time to have one, and only the second geocacher I had met who used one. Yet, both cachers were huge fans of their GPS's. As time has gone on, I have had the opportunity to get to know MissionMode and his daughter TechDeckPerson. As we can tell from their hidden caches, she is a skateboarder and he is a music fan. I was pleased to be the FTF on his new "Do You Cache Too" cache. MissionMode is active in our community, attending events and helping out with GeoVenture. He recently had found his 1,000th geocache, I am sure there are many more thousands in his future.

Cacher of the Month - May 2011

This month's cacher of the month is another geocacher that I have not had the opportunity to meet yet. However, I have heard his name in our caching community for many years. Hailing from Southwestern Manitoba, he is one of the more active cache hiders in the area with 50 distinct hides (so far). If you're looking for something to do on a weekend this summer, why not plan a trip to the Winkler/Morden area and check out some of his caches! I guarantee it would be worth the trip!
