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 - July 2009

Wagonmaker

Wagonmaker

It's improvising time again. A new CoTM and new intro is required. Off to the profile page I go.
I can see that Wagonmaker does not make wagons. He doesn't even own a little red wagon. From his picture we do see that he loves riding on trains. Although trains get you to many distant lands, like Grosse Isle, Manitoba, the "cache along route" feature at GC.com seems to go to waste. We can see that he has been caching for some time now.
Recently he topped the 1200 finds with 200 in one month. Not bad for a guy that finds caches by train. He did get the train the stop once by pulling that handle, but people kept yelling at him in a strange language. With all the muggles yelling at him he could not focus on finding the cache. So he went back to the train and started reading the consumer reports book for a new car.
Well, we hope he gets a car soon so he can use all the features at GC.com
And that is my truth for this month.

Cacher of the Month - June 2009

Bergmannfamily

Yet again this improvising reporter has the pleasure of providing the intro for this month's cacher of the month. And again I have never met this family. I really must attend more events. So off to the profile page I go.
Looking at the profile picture I have determined that this family is proud of the fact they have no cavities. The last time I saw that many teeth I was at the dentist office.
The Bergmannfamily arrived on the caching scene in April 2007. Their mission is to reintroduce the almost extinct rural cache.
