Cacher of the Month - April 2008

Dwarf & The Giant (JayPeg)

  1. When did you start Geocaching?
  2. It all began back in April 06 when I went to visit the 212s at their cabin. They said I had to try this thing called geocaching. Not so reluctantly we went to my very first cache Warning I shall Wear Purple– II. So I blame Ginny212 and this first find with getting started on my addiction. A month later I had to go back and sign the log.

  3. What was it about geocaching that got you hooked into the game?
  4. I have always enjoyed computers and collecting maps.

2008 Winter Blizzard Wrap-up

2008 Winter Blizzard

Thanks to all the hiders of 41 great "SNOW" caches that kept us out enjoying experiencing the winter.

manitoba marauders, The Giant and the Wookie, Georgia (GG56) and the Ashern Chamber of Commerce were drawn as the winners of the hiding contest. Congratulations.

With the help of OHMIC, Georgia (GG56), Bob Brown (BBrown94) and MuStash, Det. Cam Mealeon was able to determine that TurdleEggs had killed Gnathan the Gnome in Zone 2 with an Ice-caked boot. Thanks to everyone that participated, it was lots of fun.
