+dogbreathcanada Posted October 7, 2005 Share Posted October 7, 2005 (edited) Not going to suggest great single caches, or great multi-caches, or great puzzle caches. Instead I'm going to focus on cache series, of which each stage of the series is individually loggable. The series itself could consist of traditional, puzzle, or multi caches in any combination. For the Greater Vancouver Regional District (GVRD) the following series are what I consider to be the premium cache series in the area. (I've given a link to either a representative cache in the series, or to the series finale.) Tongue Twister Series by Wild Wiggly Beanz This series consists of 26 separate traditional caches, each giving a clue to the final cache location. Each cache was a unique hide, some being very cleverly hidden camouflaged caches, and others being traditional Lock & Lock hides. Probably the most popular series the area has ever seen. A lot of extraordinary effort was put into this series by the Wild Wiggly Beanz. Postcards from Ladner by Half-Canadian and Scooter the Wonder Dog A four part series, of which a GPS is not required for the first three sections. At each of the first three stages you're given a photograph (i.e. a postcard) showing a location in Ladner. You're to find that location and retrieve a micro cache which contains partial coordinate clues to the final cache. Another similar cache series is being developed for Sidney, BC by Tinkernoonoo. Scruffster Skunk is Missing by Scruffster This is a five stage series of puzzle caches, the theme being the search for the missing Scruffster Skunk. With each stage you're given a number of clues, such as diary entries, newspaper articles, photographs, and other sundry items. Once a stage is completed, you're given a password so that you can begin work on the next stage. Very cleverly designed. Though I've yet to complete a single stage of the series, I look forward to partaking in this adventure. Vancouver Transit Memorial Project by Pharmadude There was once a moving cache in the GVRD. It moved to over 150 locations in a two year timespan. It's long been archived. Pharmadude thought it would be a neat idea to memorialize all those transient hides with permanent caches. Local GVRD cachers apply for locations as managed by Pharmadude. Every month a few more VTMP caches are added to the series. There is no finale cache in the series. Burnaby History Tour by Scruffster This is a series of traditional Lock & Lock caches (and one multi cache). Different from the other series in that there is no final location to decode. Each cache stands on its own. The interesting aspect of this series is the research that Scruffster has compiled and provided. Each cache brings you to a forgotten piece of Burnaby History. There are no plaques or monuments at any of the locations, but each location still serves up some fascinating historical facts as researched by one of Burnaby's premier amateur historians. Vancouver Decachelon by Mr. Gigabyte Probably the first large scale series in the GVRD. Often replicated throughout BC (such as a similar Fraser Valley series and a similar series in the Prince George area). Consisted of ten traditional caches, each giving a clue to the final Winner's Podium. If you want to post about some interesting series in your area, please do.
