There was a GeoCaching workshop sponsored by the Friends of Riding Mountain presented in Brandon and I attended, because the subject of GeoCaching interested me.
The combination of outdoor activities with the technical nature of GeoCaching.
Yes, all 10 provinces as well as Minnesota and Florida.
Yes, my 9 year old neighbor (hidyfln) was interested so I took him out on a few caches and he was hooked.
I describe it as a form of treasure hunting using GPS technology.
Walking the dog [Moses], biking, skiing, canoeing, hiking, camping. No special accomplishments.
I can't thing of anything that I don't like. There is the problem of the lack of new caches in the Brandon area. Once you have found them all you have to start traveling further to do your GeoCaching.
Most interesting would be walking to numerous areas of Halifax over a period of 2 weeks.
Cape Split, Nova Scotia, with caches at the edge of the cliffs overlooking the Bay of Fundy.
I typically don't take trading items. I take a picture and leave a Canadian copper art piece.
Garmin 60CSx, BlackBerry, camera, Swiss army knife with integrated pen and Moses my four legged friend.
Zumo 550 in my car or on my Harley to get close to those distant caches, and 60CSx to make the final thrust.
Dog petting and shoe tying.
Mosesflf is my dog Moses, my four legged friend.
I have enjoyed helping all the TBs I have picked up to accomplish their missions.
Most all the GeoCachers that I have met are standout individuals, there is no person that I could single out.
The vineyards of Southern France.
There are no caches that we have not found in the area.
Where we walk … in Brandon #13 (GC1BX81) because of all the interesting comments that I receive on this cache.
I normally read financial books, but I am currently taking a crack at reading Angels & Demons by Dan Brown.
13 km to the SE there are a number of caches at a skiing area, Brandon Hills.
Items listed above and MapSource program on my computer.
I use the Zumo 500 for navigation in my car and on my bike. The 60CSx is used for canoeing, hiking and other outdoor activities.
