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).

Tobey of 3T's&aG writes: "Ginny212 (aka Jilly) is an awesome friend and always up for a good time. Jilly prefers the nice hikes to find a cache or three and is famous for her cache races, deep fried turkey, and her wonderful sense of balance (sorry Jilly but honestly, she's always had amazing balance when out caching with me). A kindred spirit in the hating of micros, I look forward to finding more caches with the one and only ginny212!"

  1. When did you start Geocaching?
  2. I started caching March 5, 2006. Halter Park was the closest cache to the house we were in at the time.

Cacher of the Month - January 2009

Mustash

Mustash
Mustash


MuStash was nominated by Tromelin because Mustash's caches are exactly the type that he enjoys: awesome locations with great hikes. Almost all of Mustash's caches are among Tromelin's favorites. He looks forward to any cache that Mustash creates because of the quality and effort put in them: "19 km hike! I wouldn’t go to such extremes to place a cache." Tromelin also considers Mustash very friendly.

  1. When did you start Geocaching?
  2. I found my first cache on January 27, 2005. It was Leo Mol Garden Cache by skaven. That cache is still going strong.
