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.

Dwarf (Skaven) & The Giant

  1. When did you start Geocaching?
  2. I first started geocaching on 6 November 2004 with my first find, East Gate, Part 2 by Great Dane.

  3. How did you find out about Geocaching?
  4. I first found out about geocaching from the Garmin website after having occasion to use a GPSr for a work project. I first used a handheld GPSr when I was responding to an airplane crash. As the leader of the hazardous material team and the environment officer, I had to map out the debris field for salvage operations and environmental remediation.

Cacher of the Month - January 2008



  1. When did you start Geocaching?
  2. My first cache find was in Saskatoon on May 28, 2002 at S’Toon Raider 1. Although it was my first find, it wasn’t my first attempt. That was about an hour earlier at CacheU…Gesundheit where I had a DNF. It drove me so nuts that I didn’t find it, when I headed to the Edmonton Fringe with some friends the next year, I forced them to stop in Saskatoon and help me find it. That was when I introduced ava_ad0re to geocaching. She ended up with a splinter in her arm that’s still there today.
