    Try luggin' this bad boy around. is that an AMMO BOX? that would be a great night cache! VVBFL
  2. If you are willing to come to Barrie (not quite GTA I know) you can check out Sojourn Outdoors I believe that Angies Outdoor has them too.
  3. Wow! this paints a very vivid picture of Cache-Tech! Not at all like their "ACTUAL" picture in their forum avatar! duh! Fantastic rendition!!
  4. Actually.. not this one! Determination - How Bad do you Want It?
  5. Je pensais de faire une Cache nouvelle ici dans Barrie où la description a été complètement écrite en français. Avec la quantité de gens qui parlent le français dans cette ville, il ferait le plus certainement est une difficulté de 4. Je parle seulement un petit français et ce serais fort assez pour moi !
  6. Good Idea BQ! I believe you are referring to the infamous "Nalgene" bottle. I have had mine for almost a year now, and it has been been by far the coolest gift I have recieved in a long time. Great for any Geocacher.
  7. Day trips to Orlando are no big deal..... many times I have made the trip from Jacksonville to Orlando, spent the day at one of the theme parks and then driven home. It's about a 2.5 hour drive from my house to the gate at Disney. A little less for other parks. You would enjoy it more if you spent the night - that way you could visit more than one attraction. I have made the trip in 1.5 hours but that was in my younger and dumber days. OK! well we did the crazy deed and registered for the event! ROAD TRIP! Me plus 3 will be camping out for the event now! I figure we come down a few days early for the obvious attractions and caching in Orlando and then make our way North for the 27th. If it really only is a few hours to get north, than I think we are good to go! I am all excited now. Looking forward to meeting up with our worldwide Caching Compadres and padding the stats a little! May is not soon enough!
  8. Any room for a group of 4 from Barrie Ontario, Canada? This looks like fun.. if we wanna come, we gotta start planning now! What is the feasibility of making a day trip to Orlando for the obvious tourist attractions? Maybe allowing for a few days before GWIII for this would be best.

    Ammo Boxes

    Hello There, If you are willing to come to Barrie, Ontario you can go to Angies Outdoor Right in the heart of downtown Barrie. They usually have a good assortment of Ammo Boxes, and Otter boxes that will work.
  10. Hello!! IT IS GREAT to hear you are coming up to the Barrie area! we have lots of nice caches! These are a few of my favorites: The Gables A good "South End" cache would be: Bear Creek Geocache and if I might be so bold as to refer my own caches.. I particularily like: Barrie Gorge If you have any other questions, let me know!
  11. Hey KW, I am only from Barrie which I don't think will help, but you might consider contacting either "Shelley's Crew" or "Team Woods". I know that "Team Woods" is up near Gravenhurst, and I believe "Shelley's Crew" may be up farther.
  12. Just when my patience was running out for finding crappy and broken toys, and golf balls etc, my faith in trading items was regenerated. I found a cache, and in that cache I noticed that there was a handmade item (I believe they called it a Quintipus) which looked like a little hand-knit octopus with a keyring sewn into the top. I don't really know what purpose it serves besides being a keyring, but I love it! I made sure to trade up for something that was remotely as well made, and as valuable. I keep this little guy with me when I go caching attached to my backpack to inspire me to trade items that are worthwhile, and might put a smile on someones face, or at least appear "neat". The effort put into making this item is the kinda thing I like to see when I cache. Now I just have to find a skill of my own to make a cool signature item!!
  13. OMG! so that is you that is leading me astray HardOiler! I have noticed that people do that! haha.. I agree that caching in the winter is a must to adapt to in our Ontario climate! One of my favoritist caching photos ever came from a winter cache that I did. we found the cache under all that snow!

    Well.. We did our Calgary trip with huge success, and enjoyed every last minute of it! You Albertans are sure hospitable!! We got to do the caches in the immediate Airport vicinity "On Final 28" and "Layover". "Its a Guy Thing" appeared to be missing when we strolled through. also cleaned up most of the Banff area caches minus a few. We were thrilled to have the time we did! One quickie question.. When we found "Layover" we also found another box with some small envelopes in it. We didn't take one as we had no idea what they were for. Holding the envelopes up to the light we saw that they were regular playing cards. Can someone enlighten me as to what kind of fun you are having and not telling us!!
  15. If there is anyone that is interested in being part of a semi-organized central ontario (barrie and area) geocaching community, please email me at dan@1shoppingcart.com Preliminary interest seems to be good! looking for ideas and thoughts from everyone! Edit: to change the email link
  16. I am definately from the Barrie area.. however we like to consider ourselves "Innisfil". we are like the rotten kid-brother of Barrie!
  17. Speaking of puzzle/quiz gravestone caches, I really should finish this one up since I figured it out. This is one of the best puzzle caches I have done. worth a look. The Talented Mr Bean
  18. One of my more enjoyed caches was this one: Jeepers Creepers Based in a very old Cemetery where many of the original settlers of the area are buried going back over 100 years. The cache is very tastefully placed, showing no disrespect to anthing in the area. There were reports of some cachers searching in the wrong corner and finding remains tho.. Not sure of the validity of the reports.
  19. I had to have a good laugh at this I cannot imagine the great looks I would get walking around with a blue sticky cup attached to my hat. "What are you lauging at?? IM GEOCACHING!!" I am sure that would keep crowds away!! Maybe we could call it a "Muggle" repellant!
  20. I recently found a very simple clothes-peg in a cache. Nothing special about it, but it had "www.awarenessgames.com" written on it. Needless to say, the URL intrigued me, and I took it. After looking at the website I found a whole new (and fun) sport!!
  21. haha! no offence taken!! I don't know that all geocachers are wierdos! I guess it is possible though. If I had enough money to feed that many people, I would almost certainly consider it! I guess you are right though, in hindsight, I don't see how it has to do with Geocaching in general, except that we both are avid Geocachers..
  22. So I am getting married in a few weeks, and I found myself thinking... I should turn my wedding into an Event cache! I could post the co-ordinates for the ceremony, and give everyone a time and place and all would be excellent! Of course my wife-to-be wasn't so ambitious, and vetoed the idea pretty quickly (no sense of adventure!) Besides thinking that I am obsessed with this sport, I also wondered what other kind of whacky events people have done like this.
  23. That Sux AA.. I would definately be Pi$$ed with them if they took that long. Because I am in Canada too, I had thought that I would need to use the Canadian location (naturally) but I phoned Garmin USA first, and it was actually them that told me not to deal with the Canadian outlet specifically Mine did take a while to clear customs across the border, but I couldn't put the blame on Garmin for that one.
  24. I have to admit CA.. this is definately on my list of top 5 caches.. Definately worth a jog northwest..
  25. Unfortunately this has not ended as any would have hoped. The story can be found here: New VR Report And Here: Canada NewsWire Definately heartbreaking indeed.
