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).

I have known "grover" for a long time but did not know he was a geocacher until we ran into each other at the Oak Hammock Marsh event. This has renewed our friendship and we now get together for caching excursions whenever we can, and our kids really enjoy playing with each other at the events. The Muppets, as I call them, are also an interesting cacher right now as they are on a LONG caching streak, I think it is getting close to 200 days now! I highly recommend them for cacher of the month!

Cache of the Month - December 2009

Where's Rudolph?

Where's Rudolph

The Where's Rudolph cache series was developed in the fall of 2008 as a way to get people, especially families, caching in the winter. The idea was to make a family oriented series where the kids and the adults would have fun finding the reindeer caches and work together solving the easy puzzle to find Rudolph.

As such, I made an effort to make sure that every cache in the series was kid friendly as well as winter friendly.

The basic idea is that Rudolph has disappeared! That made Santa quite nervous as Rudolph is the lead reindeer and in case of fog or other inclement weather, Rudolph becomes essential to the team. This jeopardizes the whole Christmas gift distribution which means that all the geocachers worldwide may not receive their new GPS for Christmas...
