  1. After guessing I googled. I am wrong. Dont even bother telling me how wrong I am.
  2. The lines of declination curve around Canada. I am going to guess that in some places the declination might be as high as 90 degrees.
  3. Despite the apparent sarcasm Dave got the right answer! Point the hour hand of your watch at the sun and the line that bisects the angle between noon and the hour hand is the north/south line. It is accurate only if your watch is set for true local time. As Dave mentions in standard time that is only on certain meridians. But whether you have accurate time or not it is still an estimate of north. Next question to dabhib07.
  4. - Trade it for a compass - barter it for information on where North is - Use the compass feature by clicking the "mode" button a few times - Attach it to a canadian goose in early spring, track the goose - Just keep following the minutes hand for a few hours, then look for the north star - Ask the watch politely.. if it refuses to answer, smash it with a rock. I always enjoy your answers Juicepig. They remind me to think outside of the box. However I am looking for the answer in the box.
  5. I also read that even if you only have a digital watch, you could draw the hands on a piece of paper and use that!
  6. Ironically this method is more accurate the farther North you go.
  7. My kids got a similar toy from BK last year. I had hoped to make a multicache with an invisible ink marker showing the last coords. Never did though.
  8. Sorry for the delay folks. Its been a busy few days. I will stick with the survival theme. Using an Analog Wristwatch (one with hands) describe how it can direct you to North.
  9. OOO I love survival stuff. I am pretty sure you refer to Cattail (Typha latifolia)
  10. oh now I know I am wrong!
  11. Is it Herodier GC1BWTD with no finds?
  12. I hope to travel through there this summer. My daughter is looking forward to it! You're up Binrat!
  13. I will stick with the theme. Where is this statue?
  14. Is that's Piglets Bottomless Pit Cache near Signal Hill?
  15. I googled so I can't answer but the answer is a good one!
  16. Correct. The methye portage was the link that allowed trade and exploration from east to west and north. The clearwater is one of my dream paddling destinations.
  17. This is totally a guess with some help from Wikipedia, is it Prince Albert, Sask.? Sorry, although Prince Albert sits on the North Saskatchewan and play significant roles in early times it is not the answer. This portage joins the Churchill River system with the the Mackenzie River System.
  18. Hint: It was introduced to Peter Pond in 1778 and Alexander MacKenzie used it in 1793 to reach the Pacific Ocean 12 years before Lewis and Clark.
  19. What is the name and location of the main portage in Saskatchewan linking the trading posts from the southeast with those from the northwest? Essentially linking Eastern Canada with the Arctic.
  20. I just got around the problem. I cleared my cookies, relogged into the site and then started fresh on the new bookmark list.
  21. I just discovered this bug. I also found that now when I want to see the bookmark list that was mistakenly added to it says 27 caches but only shows the original 25. Not the two that were mistakenly added. WIERD
  22. I know that when they were first naming towns along rail lines in Saskatchewan, they named them in alphabetical order.
  23. Sorry I lapsed. I was out of province. I will let the first person to post ask the next question. The answer to mine is: Your tee shot in Canada lands in another country(US) an hour later. The ninth green is the only one in the states as well as the club house.
  24. You're allowed that second shot but what makes the shot unique? Two things..
  25. All the tee boxes are in Canada.
