Canadian Geopub Quiz

Ok, that was just a complete guess - I could have sworn that I heard Tokyo somewhere though...

 

I need to think about this for a while

I may suggest Seattle WA as the second city, but am so unsure of the third, I won't hazard a guess as of now. Just wait until the CRS syndrome quits affecting my brain. :lol:

Jerusalem is correct.

 

Seattle is not one that I was aware of, but it appears to be correct, so take it away Mag Magician.

 

Bye the way, the other two I had in mind are:

 

Istanbul - formerly Constantinople, and was chosen as the site for the capital of Rome's eastern empire because it had seven hills

 

Lisbon is the other.

Here's a quickie! Why is the name "Manuel Moroun" important to international transportation?

First to circumnavigate the globe in a shipping container?

 

Lessee? Nope! Circumnavigate is wrong, and shipping containers are a small part of where he is very important to international shipping. :)

Hmmm, did you Google those facts?

 

However, the Ambassador Bridge is the only privately owned International transportation corridor between Canada and the US.

 

Go ahead. Take your turn.

Interesting but #1 moved to ontario so that may not be 100%

Assuming you mean #6 in number of finds, it's BPCachers at 3413.

 

Luckily I already had a link to cacherstats.com.

He's got to be #1 or 2 in Ontario - He's certainly #1 here in Ottawa, but he's #5 (I think) in Canada :)

True so the question is still not solved

 

come on there are enough clues now to get the right group

 

Who are/is the #6 in the leader board of finds in Nova Scota?

This question has STAGnated into pedantry. Please ask another question, preferably one that will be of more general knowledge and interest.

 

If not, I'll have to ask one of my *own* dreaded natural science questions. :D

New Question:

 

What's unique about the bones of the garfish?

I know that one, but I'm curious how this fits in to the criteria for questions in this thread as posted in the OP. I'm curious because you broke in earlier in this thread and interupted my question about where the first all aluminum bridge is because you said it was off track according to the criteria. My question was clearly about geography so should have been OK according to post 1. Now we get this one from you and I can't figure out where it fits into to your own criteria. :D

 

And the answer is, they are green.

So then is it 2 GYPSIES WITH NO MOSS BETWEEN OUR TOES?

 

THIS IS THE CORRECT ANSWER FOR TODAY

 

There seems to be a few cachers moving away

 

Send the next question as you did your best and made a correct response.

 

STAGunner not stargunner or garstunner

What the heck is going on in here.... I am confused! :)

 

rasberry jelly fish and gypsies with moss between their toes? I think someone has been eating too much jelly fish jelly!

I think the problem that has started the confusion is that there was one question that finished without being finished... and then another that was started that no one knew the answer to so we got goofy. Then there was confusion over the fact that the rules were not being kept to.... and it all snowballed into hearing nothing but the crickets :)

 

So, although this is not my forum topic, I am going to take the lead here say lets forget any previous unanswered questions because obviously no one is going to finish them. And I have gone back to the original post to copy the rules to refresh everyone's memory or to inform those that came in mid-way and did not read from the beginning to even know what the rules are. So here are the rules:

 

Here's how it works. I'll ask a question and the person whom answers correctly will ask the next question and when that's answered correctly will in turn post another question etc. To keep it within topic I suggest the questions fall into one or more of these loose categories:

 

- Geocaching

- Navigation

- Geomatics/graphy/physics etc

- The Canadian hiking experience

- Cycling, Canoeing, Kayaking or any other means of arriving at a cache.

- Camping

 

No cheating now, that includes Googling for the answers!

 

And I am going to post the first NEW question now:

 

Many people know that Algonquin Provincial Park is Ontario's oldest provincial park and the first provincial park in Canada (established 27 May 1893).

But who knows what the second oldest provincial park in Ontario is and when was it established?

 

(Remember no cheating, no googling or yahooing, etc to find the answer)

Presqu'Ile Provincial Park? I used Mapsource... so it's a wild guess.

 

good guess.... but no. Presqu'ile was designated a provincial park in 1956.

Would it be Rondeau?

 

Binrat

 

Yep.. good job Binrat!

 

In 1894 Rondeau became Ontario's second provincial park.

 

Your turn Binrat.... :laughing:

That would have to be the Trans-Canada Trail, I would think?

Sorry, The Trans Canada Trail was created in 1992, try again but think older.

I was thinking the Trans-Canada Trail too but I was just thinking of longest not age.

 

Re-thinking it I would guess the Bruce Trail which along the Niagara Escarpment from Niagara Falls to Tobermory. I can't remember when it was started though... sometime in the 60's?

I have hiked portions of the trail and love it!
