As it was a good friend's birthday recently I decided to place not one but two geopics in his honour!



It is close to this:



And there is a cache close to this one too!

Coordinates are:

N 49 5X.XXX W 096 4X.XXX

Good luck and Happy Birthday!

N 49 57.864
W 096 42.989

I was surprised that there was a "Scott Park" in Winnipeg on Scott Street. So I zoomed right over there to see what fun I could have in the park.

Hmmm. Seems that Scott Park doesn't exist...Mebbe I should check the hint coordinates. Lessee...

So I enter 4 waypoints on the GPS for the 4 potential corners of the virtual search box. As luck would have it, there is only one cache within the box that exists in my unfound caches that isn't the solution to a puzzle. A quick Blackberry lookup tells me that OHMIC has recently found this cache. Target Acquired. And only 27 KM from where I am currently parked. Practically walking distance.

Off I go to Hazelridge. I grow nervous as I approach the area. This is, after all, Turdle Country. And on warm June days Turdles have been known to set aside their fastidious work of data manipulation and spreadsheet analysis to go and warm their shells in the local parks. "Meh", I figure. If I see him on site I will tackle him and throw his camera in Cooks Creek.

I was happy to arrive to see no sign of Turdles or speedy Glaciers. I snapped the pic of the streetsign:

And the Park sign:


A rather low-key park. Not much in the way of activity. I decide to take advantage of my solitude and look for the Bon Jovi cache. Unfortunately no amount of searching turned up any type of container. Oh well.

Response pic to come soon.

I know at least 2 cachers who have a picture of this ready to go. Question is...who will post first??
***Response requirement.***
There must be no geocachers recognizable in the pic.

You don't need to post it sideways, but I am doing this at Tim Hortons and am down to 4% battery!!!No time to edit.
As if you need a coordinate hint...
49 5x.xxx
97 1x.xxx

Finally found it.
The first excursion with the new GPS was a success! And the geo-tagging feature of the camera worked great!
