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).

Hunting Season

Elmer the Hunter

The Ontario Geocaching Association writes: Tiz the season! No, not that season despite what the department stores look like. What we are talking about is HUNTING SEASON, and it started in the middle of October. 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.

  1. When did you start Geocaching? Your first cache?
  2. My first cache was 1Q & 4J’s Maple Grove on April 30/05. It was on the way to the local puppy park Ozzie & I routinely used to visit.

  3. How did you find out about Geocaching?
  4. park2 was a former supplier of mine from Alberta. He is a real techno weenie (check out his profile). He was in the process of marrying Trimble survey grade GPS with a cable/pipe locator I was selling for him and he dragged me along for an expedition out in the flatlands. I moved to a different company with similar products and they supplied me with my first GPS for, ahem…, working applications.
