Cacher of the Month - August 2010

I remember back to mid-2005 when a series of caches started to pop up in the Morden area of the province. At the time, there were not many caches in this area. I think that lap has single-handedly increased the geo-tourism in the area. Many caching excursions have been planned to find all the caches in SouthWestern Manitoba with a lot of focus being placed in this area. Fast forward to 2010 and we now have many other cachers hiding in this area, and it's still a destination for caching weekends. With the Morden Corn and Apple festival having just completed, I'm sure he's seen more hits on his caches.
