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).

GPS Wolf Hunt

Here is your opportunity to use your GPS to find the Spirit Way Wolves which are located across our beautiful province. What better opportunity to see Manitoba and have some fun with your GPS while you’re at it. Each wolf’s title is a secret! Your mission, if you accept it, is to track them down and find the title on all the 49 steel plaques. Then you will be recognized as a GPS Wolf Master Tracker! To participate you will need a GPS Wolf Passport, which is available from the MBGA for $5. Contact Us to obtain a passport. They will be available at most MBGA events this summer.

For more information and rules visit the GPS Wolf Hunt at Thompson SpiritWay.

Cacher of the Month - April 2010

SiaFhir

SiaFhir

Siafhir - that is not something you get to say very often. I have met Siafhir at a few events and he insists that he has made no movies and does not go by the name of Matt Damon. Look at the pictures.
This investigative reporter has found some interesting co-incidences regarding the activities of "Siafhir". He was not heard from or seen here while the Oscars were on. (The TMZ reporter training school is really working for me now!) You would think that being Jason Bourne, traveling around the world he have found a few more international caches.
During the past year has worked on no less than 4 films and a voice for Happy Feet 2. This also explains the few caches he has found recently.
Here is wishing he maintains his duo identity (nudge, nudge wink, wink, say no more) and brings Julia Roberts and the rest of the Ocean's crew to town someday.

Cache of the Month - April 2010

 Geeny Gmeeny Gminy G-Moe:

Back in the old days of caching (July 2007) when we had to walk uphill both ways to get a cache, an evil thought crossed the mind of a certain cacher, grnbrg by name. He one day comes out and thinks "hmm what if I put out a challenge to all the cachers to have a Month of Evil". He then puts this out for all cachers to contribute to. Hence, Gneevil the evil gnome was born. Uncle of Gnorman, the gnice gnome and a distant cousin of the very venerable Gnarly gnome, Gneevil was brought out to show the evilness of the gnomes g-gnomes. The cache was born as a side of evil and twistedness. The cache had been prepared and a rough idea of the area had been decided upon.
A whole gangling of gnomes tromped into the bush to find the new home of the vault. When the current location was found, it was exactly as Turdleggs described it in his log "A Tolkein Universe". All the logs are our favourites, they show such fun and misery at the same time, but the best log for this cache is owned by Gnarly's handlers 1Queenand4jokers who used it as their 1400th find and Gnarley's first. Mind you the salsa dance lessons on the sidewalk came in a close second. --Ztirnats
