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.

Hunting Season

Elmer the Hunter

It's that time of year again for Hunting Season. As some of us have a habit of wearing camo-style clothing or at least dark colours, this is not always such a good idea. We share certain woodlots with some people that have a different definition of hunting than we do. It is highly recommend that if you are going to be out in the woods, even if it is just a little bit from the road, that wearing some bright coloured clothing is a safe idea. Trust us, you won't scare the cache away! We have heard stories of hunters being in areas that are do not actually allow hunting, and geocachers running into them while out for a casual walk.
