  1. Myself and Maryjane have a started a blog related to geocaching within Newfoundland, Canada.


    The address is as follows: www.treasureislandcaching.wordpress.com


    About the blog:


    Over the years we have been contacted by numerous geocachers who were planning on visiting Newfoundland, looking for insight into the local geocaching community, suggestions on where to go, places to stay, and what caches to find. The interaction with these geocachers, combined with the friendships we've formed with several local geocachers, is one of the things we enjoy the most about this hobby.


    Another great aspect of geocaching is the opportunity to explore locations that are off the beaten path and discover places that are not in the typical tourist guidebooks.


    To this end, we've created Treasure Island Caching ...


    This blog is intended as a resource for geocachers traveling to Newfoundland. Whether you're coming for a short business trip to St. John's or a month long family vacation traveling right across the island, we hope that this blog will be able to serve as a starting point for planning your adventures on the Island.


    A secondary objective is to provide ourselves with a journal to document our own adventures while geocaching and exploring the cliffs, trails, and highways of Newfoundland.


    Please spread the word and let us know what you think! Is there something that would be useful to include on the site? We're open to all feedback!

  2. New to the trading realm, but I have the following coins to trade:


    2 x Newfoundland 2007 Geocoin (Both polished nickel finish)

    3 x 2008 Canada Micro Geocoin


    I have only about 20-25 coins in my collection, so I have no specific requests or wants... Send me an email through our profile if you are interested!

  3. Hi All,


    I'm new to the geocoin collecting club and am wondering what is the standard way to store all of these coins? My collection is small with 20-25 coins but expanding slowly... starting to think that the lock n' lock container that currenty houses them is not doing my collection justice anymore...


    I searched around the forums and could not find any real information that satisfied me so I'm drawing on the collective knowledge of all you now. I'm also now starting to develop a small trading collection... but thats a whole other question... Any help you guys can provide about storage would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

  4. Hello Fellow Cachers,


    One of our local cachers is hosting a camping/cookout event cache in Mid-September up here in Central Newfoundland, Canada. See the event listing below:


    Heyou & Friends Campout Geocache Event (GC1DPYA)


    I have offered her my services in designing an icebreaker, which is to be handed out early on at the event, and those who complete the requirements will be entered into the drawing for a geocoin (yet to be determined which specific geocoin). What I have in mind is a simple series of questions such as:


    1. Find a cacher who has 500+ finds

    2. Find a cacher who has 20+ hides

    3. Find a cacher who... you get the idea!


    Just wondering if anyone out there has either created such a thing, or previously attended an event where something like this was used? I am looking for feedback on the idea, and maybe if anyone has a template I could use/borrow they could email it to me? Thanks for the help everyone I really appreciate it!

  5. While the cache density may not be that high here in St. John's it is certainyl growing with a whole herd of cachers just getting into the sport and really producing some excellent hides. As I said before, if you want to drop me a line and tell me your interests, I'd be more than willing to suggest some caches that would be suited to your likes. In the meantime may I suggest some of my own...? :rolleyes:


    Located downtown, near a host of other caches:


    Haunted Hall


    An interesting variation on the puzzle theme:


    Friends of the Forest


    Located near Long Pond and Memorial University, near a whole series of other caches:


    Rocky Road to Long Pond


    And finally... check out the Bowering Park area... most notable the site of the recent WWFMIII event that was hosted by a local cacher...


    WWFMIII Event Cache


    There is also a really nice multi that a local cacher created this past fall... If you've got any questions, as I've said, drop me a line!

  6. Hi scottbob139,


    I'm a local geocacher in St. John's, Newfoundland. Drop me an email with whatever information you are searching for and I'd be more than glad to help out if I can. I'm also new to the forum posting but have been geocaching the area for approximately two years now...
