Hi guys,

I was wondering where I could pick up a few of those ammo and plastic waterproof containers that most people use for geocaching. Also where do you get the stickers, FTF certicates, etc..? Is there a store in the city that sells them for cheap?

I have a few places that I would like to hide some caches in the coming weeks.

Thanks!

Ammo cans from Army Surplus or Princess Auto around the city.
Lock n Lock from many places, Zellers, Rona, Walmart, etc.

The cache identification stickers can be found in the Stick Em Up and Stick Em Down caches within the city or at any event that Cache and Carey attends.

FTF certificates you have to make yourself, here is one blank example that can be used or make up something yourself. http://www.mbgeocaching.ca/ftf_certificate

The Dollarama on Ellice has Lock and Locks for $1 each. Little ziplocks (swag size) are also $1. for about 100 at this store.

Just printed the next Princess Auto flyer, the magnets are on sale again in about two weeks, the last set I bought of them was about 150% stronger than the previous. The 50 Lb Magnet was on sale too, two of those may help someone doing an evil cache.

If you want to order caching merchandise from a local retailer, try CachingCulture.com. It's run by a couple of local Winnipeg cachers. They have TB Dogtags, Small & Medium sized Pelican Container, Micro Capsules, Lanyard, Fake Rocks, etc...

They're an official Geocaching.com reseller. I placed an order through PayPal, within 2 hours I had my products in hand.
