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 - May 2006

MHz

MHz
MHz & Gord from Morris
  1. How did you find out about Geocaching?
  2. Another geocacher, Razzputen, who is also a family friend, asked Gord to check out geocaching.com as he knew we had GPS units which we use for our amateur (ham) radio hobby. Gord told me about it and well we tried to find two different caches the very next weekend. That was on February 14, 2004. We didn’t succeed as we were little prepared for the mounds of snow and cold temps that day. The next time we went out, we were far more prepared and succeeded on every cache we tried to find and even met another cacher, Crooked Toe, at the cache sites of our first and second finds. It also seems fitting that the first cache we found, The Munsen Park Cache, was owned (now archived) by Razzputen.
