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 - December 2008

Tromelin

Tromelin
Tromelin

An import from Quebec, Tromelin has been geocaching since mid-2006. In that short time, he has found over 1800 caches. He is well-respected in our local geocaching community for the quality of the geocaches that he hides.

  1. When did you start Geocaching?
  2. Myself and geocachers Troop6 wanted to find a cave in the Niagara Escarpement. We thought we had coords to the entrance of a cave. We didn't find it but I had also put the coords for a multi called Eagles Nest; Cavern's Walk (GCX3K4). A great cache where you have to travel in crevice caves.

spaceman_baz (and Boogie Babe)

spaceman_baz was nominated as the MBGA Cacher of the Month for November by the previous recipient, Foxfiresyxx. Foxfiresyxx has always liked going after spaceman_baz's caches. Whether by foot, like the 5 mile walk to finish Baz's Texas Holdem cache, or taking the bus to complete Baz's Mayor of Winnipeg caches, or biking around his old stomping grounds in the North End. He's looking forward to finding more of spaceman_baz's caches.
