  1. I live in a town with the "World Largest" Oil Can Name five other Canadian towns and the "Worlds Largest" thing that they contain. List must be limited to man made tributes to smaller things.
  2. Ahh the one I thought is two! 1. Vancouver 2. Graham 3. Moresby 4. Princess Royal 5. Pitt (uninhabited) The coin was a mover so it was only in my hand for that tourney. I havent won since.
  3. Hmm. I don't believe you asked for them in order but here goes. 1. Vancouver 2. Graham 3. Princess Royal 4. Banks(uninhabited) 5. Pitt P.S. One of your coins brought me luck in a poker tournament.

  5. If someone accidentally discovers a MOC they should have some way of logging it or seeing what it is on the website. MOC should have the coords and map blocked out for everyone that is not a PM. But you should still be able to read the cache description.
  6. It is sorted somewhat by date placed. It gives me some from 01 then jumps to 2005 to present then about 350 caches in goes back to 2001. Then procedes chronologically until 2005. It means newest caches are in the middle of the preview.
  7. When I generate a pocket query and then preview the result how are they sorted? I live in Saskatchewan, Canada and we only have 450 in the province. I can query all of them at once. If I don't designate a centre point, how are the caches sorted in the preview? As far as I can tell they are not by any date or alphabetical either by waypoint or name.
  8. So Gneiss was wrong?? Well I will go for the other one. Schist. Oops, sorry, I have to keep it family friendly. SC***T
  9. Found it! Its a song called Gospel Rock by Splendourbog.
  10. I am actually looking for it right now. I thought it was Captain Tractor but I couldnt find it on the list of their songs.
  11. I am reminded of a song I once heard. "Don't take me for Granite, I'm Gneiss!
  12. The statistics may be skewed as only survivors get to report the incident.
  13. I travel alot in the summer to map DED infected trees. The government provides me with a nice big 4x4 to access forested areas. Also some time in hotels in other cites. Computer and mapping software are included in the job! Any environmental Tech job probably would be the best. (ie fisheries, wildlife, forestry)
  14. I used to work at a kids camp where we went by "Camp Names". Since I was from a prairie province and like barley sandwiches, my camp name became Barley. It also sounds like Bob Marley!
  15. How could he tell? He ran into a fence leaving a section of land in MB. He had walked/hunted a mile in a province he didnt have a license for.
  16. I dont want to steal AV Dezign thunder but this was too funny not to post. He put it up in the Canada Forum.
  17. That rocked as much as that Metal Curling video. Hmm, I cant seem to locate it. There it is. Hammerfall
  18. Correct! Sections of land were 1 mile square. As they got farther North with thier survey the section on the edge got smaller. Then a correction was applied. I friend of mine was walking north through a community pasture, hunting. All or a sudden he was in Manitoba!
  19. This is close to the truth. It has to do with straight lines on a curved surface.
  20. Thats is part of the reason.
  21. I said "Eastern Border"! and it has nothing to do with Time Zone. I zigs every 24 miles or so. Hint Hint.
  22. I performed a search for the answer to the next question and did not find it. So here goes. As I am from Saskatchewan I will throw a relevant question out. Most of Canada says our province is "hard to say but easy to draw". This is only true half way. The eastern border would be hard to draw as it actually zig zags every so often. Why?
  23. I like the idea of hunting benchmarks as a way of keeping the government appraised of the status of the system. I have searched for a few and found even less.
  24. Just like burns, Frostbite is catorgized into superficial, partial and full thickness. As frostbite causes lose of sensation in the frozen part applying heat, either dry or hot may cause burns before the affected part is completely rewarmed. However the treatment in hospital or in the field where there is NO chance of refreezing is to thaw the affected part in very warm water. (102-105 F I think) Frozen skin will often sluff off like when that guy on Survivor Austrailia burnt his hands!
  25. I remember Ski Orienteering applying to be a demo sport. They were turned down because there was no way to have TV coverage of people going all different directions! I am going to stop training right now. Previous olympic medal sports have included motor boat racing, obstacle swim and rope climbing.
