Cache of the Month - December 2009
The Where's Rudolph cache series was developed in the fall of 2008 as a way to get people, especially families, caching in the winter. The idea was to make a family oriented series where the kids and the adults would have fun finding the reindeer caches and work together solving the easy puzzle to find Rudolph.
As such, I made an effort to make sure that every cache in the series was kid friendly as well as winter friendly.
The basic idea is that Rudolph has disappeared! That made Santa quite nervous as Rudolph is the lead reindeer and in case of fog or other inclement weather, Rudolph becomes essential to the team. This jeopardizes the whole Christmas gift distribution which means that all the geocachers worldwide may not receive their new GPS for Christmas...
The posted coordinates for Rudolph are at the location where he was last seen during the Winnipeg Christmas Parade at the corner of Portage and Memorial.
Fortunately, there is hope as each of the other reindeer have a bit of a clue on the whereabouts of Rudolph.
It has been a pretty popular cache with 31 people having found Rudolph so far and some of the other reindeer caches having been visited by over 80 cachers.
I would like to thank the other cachers who have been helping me fixing and replacing some of the caches that went missing and especially the Ztirnats who replenished the Rudolph cache recently with more Holidays goodies. --OHMIC
