OK, this might be the thread for this ...

... let's say someone theoretically came in to a load of $$ ... and using said funding, could hire a helicopter, and go out to Untouchable, or close by.

is that inappropriate for geocaching?

personally I'd feel like a Cheater McFeater. For geocaching ... is it the find, or the journey that is the real quest.

discuss...

Hourly rate for a helicopter is only about $800 so technically grnbrg spent more than that on the last attempt. You can probably carry 4 cachers so that is only $200 each, and if the chopper is already in the area you might be able to get in there and back in a fraction of an hour.

Frankly if you spent enough time at it I'm pretty sure you could get a snowmachine into the cache. If you have doubts (or just want to be entertained) check out this video.

But really, what is the point? To get another smiley or accomplish something that you didn't think you could do or challenges you?

Question

For anyone that might have missed this past weekend’s flurry of activity at Untouchable:

Master Instigator archived Untouchable
KiteKacher found Untouchable
Dragonfreys found Untouchable

I really enjoyed reading KiteKacher and Dragonfrey’s tales - I could feel the presence of the Canadian Shield all around me as I read the logs.

I’m glad you both decided to list your logs as a find (with MI’s permission). Even in its absence the ammo box sounded tangible enough to touch! It seems like you picked a beautiful day for the hike.

Well done and glad you had a great hike to Untouchable Lake.

Thanks TurdleEggs,

KiteKacher got some great photos and set them up in a slideshow to give you an even better flavour for the area. They might even compel people to go there even though there isn't a cache anymore.

The slideshow works pretty slick. Smile

Great pictures! My favourite has to be “Dragonfrey unleashes his fiery anger…

KiteKatcher “Near the little rapids" is a great photo.

Such great photos! They sure make me yearn for some time away from the city in such beautiful surroundings.
Thanks for setting up the slideshow.
