A funny thing kept occurring as Gordon Goldsborough was searching for and mapping historic sites across Manitoba.

"I kept finding geocache boxes at the sites. I'd go, 'What's this thing clipped to the side?' "

We saw him at the Cache the Marsh event. He mentioned his daughter is into caching and that's the only way he can coax her into his road trips.

I was fortunate to have him as a professor back in my Brandon U days....best teacher I've ever had. I was just talking to him on Friday night actually but this didn't come up unfortunately.
