Drat, the dates don't work for me at all. I'll be bowing out and looking forward to living vicariously through everyone who goes. Will wait for Churchill 2.0.

I'm interested in going. I'd have to work out the finances after my two week roadtrip. If there's room, I'll probably figure out a way to go.

I can't make those dates so I'll have to pass. Looking forward to seeing pics and reading about it.

I have the "North Wind" TB in my possession. It wants to travel farther north than where it was found by any means other than flying. I picked it up at Delta Beach. I'm sure it would love to make this trip. Perhaps I can connect with one of you to take it along.

MuStash, yes we can take it easily and get it some Northern Exposure, maybe even a trip to Nunavut if things work out....

Just so you can believe me on the train action, check out the rails in this picture and these are the rails in the THOMPSON yard, before you get to the permafrost ones..

Just a note, because of the booking time required and the organizational requirements there will be a cut off date for booking. There will be NO more adds to the group after this point. So if you are procrastinating about going or not you have until:

.................... MAY 15, 2009.................


to make up your mind.

In conjunction with Churchill - The Adventure, there will be two quick events on July 3, 2009 in the Churchill area. They are:

GC1QZJG Miss Piggy Party - The story of the missing cache
and
GC1QZJM Nunavut Event - "Our Land" Shocked
This Nunavut Event will give you Nunavut on your geocaching stats map!

Don't forget to log your will attend if you are going to be there.

In addition we will try to find ALL caches in the area (6 traditional & 1 multi). Maybe there will be more before we arrive?

Well I might just have the old dude convinced. Put us tentatively down for 2 Stan, and we will confirm before May 15. We will confirm ASAP so you don't have to hold the spot longer than necessary. John is away on business but will return today and we can discuss it this weekend.
It really sounds like a great experience... I promise not to stomp down any trees in the Great White North - I am sure the locals would have none of it ... or Nunavut

Just another one of the peculiar sights that makes Churchill a special place.
This picture was taken at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre. Can you guess what the truck was used for?
