Welcome

Welcome Introduction

Geocaching is a worldwide adventure sport which utilizes GPS devices to hide and seek hidden containers called geocaches. (Learn more about geocaching) To get started geocaching, all you need is a GPS receiver and a geocache location. (Learn more about getting started) You can find a nearby geocache location at geocaching.com by entering an address or town into the search box.

The Manitoba Geocaching Association (MBGA) strives to advance the sport of geocaching through social activities, public education and promotion of geocaching. (Learn more about the MBGA).

Cacher of the Month - February 2011

I've known devildawg for many years. The first few times I remember seeing her, she was always accompanied by Harley, her dog. At first I thought she was shy, as she had only made it to a handful of events. But as I got to know her, that perception quickly disappeared. She always seems happy and talkative and is fun to hang around with. While we were out geocaching with Mhz last year, she surprised me with her monkey-like ability when she easily scaled a pine tree to retrieve one of the First In, Last Out caches. It was like she was defying gravity! As one of the city's Paramedics, I have a lot of respect for her. Now, if she'd only let me drive one of the ambulances with the sirens going, that'd be SWEET!
