  1. It was in 1957 shortly before my Birthday which is October 24 so my guess guess would be Sept 24 and a guess it is as I really have no idea of the date, lucky I remembered the year

    Since I won't have time to check on the other answers, this one is close enough.. precise date is October 4, 1957.

     

    Take it away VO2WW!

  2. 200

    We have a winner! NRCANs Geographic Names Query doesn't distinguish between French & English names so "cache" shows up quite a few times - 27 in Ontario alone!

     

    take it away GrosseFamille....

     

    - DonnaG

     

    Do I get "A NEW CAR!"? :P

     

    Ok..

     

    When (precise date: year-month-day) did the Soviet Union launch Sputnik – the world's first satellite?

  3. Les Pocket Query (.GPX) ne retournent pas cette information. C'est à toi de le faire manuellement dans GSAK.

     

    Si tu ne vois pas la colonne FTF (PAT), tu n'as qu'à l'ajouter en faisant "View" "Add column" et cocher "FTF".

     

    Il n'y a pas de colonne pour les STF (DAT) mais tu peux utiliser les champs "User Data" ou "User Data 2".

     

    (oops.. trompé de forum.. je crois que j'étais sur le forum de GSAK! Utilises-tu GSAK?)

     

    Peu importe.. la première phrase dit tout!

  4. I guess HF Reign was logging the right answer as I was uploading the hint. Nice work! Take it away!

    That's what I thought too.

     

    But.. for my knowledge.. how would you use howk is a sentence?

     

    Oh no, not another howk? B)

     

    (Or.. Oh howk, not another false peak? :rolleyes: )

  5. New caches of all types placed in the last 30 days (from the date of my jelly bean jar post):

     

    Quebec = 358

    Ontario = 314

    Alberta = 172

    BC = 151

    Nova Scotia = 122

    New Brunswick = 83

    PEI = 52

    Manitoba = 45

    Newfoundland = 38

    Saskatchewan = 30

    Nunavut = 1

    NWT & Yukon = 0

     

    A total of 1,366 caches! Holy snappin' hell cats! That's a lot!

     

    Mark&Beth had the first close answer, coming within 99. Geek-e was also fairly close (within 198).

     

    And the winner is GrosseFamille who came within 86 caches with their answer of 1,280. Interestingly, GrosseFamille is also from La Belle province where the most caches were placed.

    Hey! Nice..

     

    I keep a close count on the caches placed in Québec.. picked a number, 256, and multiplied by 5 - not all the provinces are as proliphic as Qc and Ont.

     

    I am thinking of a virtual cache in front of the Science Centre in Toronto (Every Cache Moves). There is a big spike in the plaza that is driven down into the centre of the earth, and the spike has torn the sidewalk as the plate moves. I think the rip is about 1m and I think the Science Centre has been there about 30 years.

     

    While we wait for the next question, I'll ask one to keep this place busy.

     

    Q: if it is in fact true that the spike is driven into the centre of the earth, how long would the spike be? I'll accept the answer in units of metres or kilometres.

     

    hint: it would be a hell of a long spike

    I skip my turn.. don't have any Qs!

     

    But I'll try to answers.. 5000Km?
