Canada Multi-cache

Recommended Posts

Hey gang, when you post that your cache is up and running put the waypoint number. That way eelow&beelow can compile the list and we can all scoot over and have a look at it for ourselves.

There's still quite a few to go.

I've been making my own list as they are posted here.

eelow&beelow is already planning the bookmark.

Winnipeg (GCY71E) is just waiting for the reviewer to okay it.

 

First cache was muggled. :)

 

I swiped some code from New Brunswick's page. :D

Please do not post any codes from these caches. Cache owners, please make a note on your cache page about this. The idea of this series is to have someone find all 10 caches and hit the final to claim the FTF. I guess we cannot prevent someone from obtaining numbers, but I think the only allowed finds on the final will be from those who have visited all 10 of the other caches in the series with proper logs and verified by the owners. That way it is not claimed by those with friends in each province.

 

I hope people will try this series within the spirit intended!

We will need a new person for Quebec as our original person has backed out.

Really! :) I'm very surprised.. I'll see what I can do on my side..

It would be best if you could provide a sort of introduction text for all of us to include on our pages. That way it is in a consistent voice. Is that possible? Being that this is the "rulebook" of this series so to speak, it would be best if it was presented in a similar manner. OK?

OK! Winnipeg is up and running and...APPROVED! Had a proximity issue with one of the stages. Had to fix it up this morning.

I am missing waypoints for:

Regina, Quebec City, St John's and most importantly, the main one for Ottawa.

 

I am showing Edmonton to be awaiting approval.

 

----

We should probably have them named consistantly. Ours is just called Fredericton Walking Tour. I haven't changed the name because I've been waiting for the main (Ottawa) cache to come out.

The ottawa one is experiencing a slight delay due to the fact that all the information for me to place it is currently on a hard disk on my home computer... which blew up (cpu cooked off due to cpu fan death) a few days ago. Although I'm sure that Alison will read this now and email me :blink:

 

I'll get out soon to place the final container, but with no computer my life is a bit chaotic.

 

On the flip side, I'm relearning a bunch of personal organizational skills that I've not had to exercise as long as I've had Outlook, etc.

St. John's is sent in to be published, the waypoint is GCXDZ8

 

Does anyone know if there is a store in St. John's that sells Geocaching gear?

 

Thanks

There seems to be a holdup on the approval end. Any word from the cache owners who have not gone live yet on what is going on?

 

Thanks.

e&b, just sent you a private email. Have you got a status update, and perhaps a summary list of all the cache placements (with GC codes) to send us yet to update the listings with?

 

I have not 'realeased my listing' to the approvers yet, waiting for your go on that... not sure why some have been listed yet. Likely what's causing the problem as the final would not be solveable until we get all our ducks in a row here.

 

Can we try to get this on-line ALL by the end of the month!? Hunting season is here... hence my duck analogy. :huh:

 

PS - GeoSquid.. I feel fer yah. I just tried upgrading to Windows Vista RC1... and well.. mine was self-induced.. what can I say.

Hi everyone,

 

A quick update:

 

Two more are online, and the bookmark list has been updated

http://www.geocaching.com/bookmarks/view.a...be-03229e5d2b31

 

Still waiting on Alberta and of course Quebec as well as the final.

 

Another note: Please make sure you name your cache with the same name: "Great White North Geotour - (Insert name of your cache here)"

 

Also I am lovin' this page with the provincial coat of arms.. Please put that list on your page as well.

Ah man.. that's so funny..

 

I found someone that could place a cache in Quebec City only in October/November.. would that be good enough?

 

And, another question people ask me: can a currently active cache be converted for this project?

 

:D I don't know why people don't want to get into this great project.

 

I'll try to find someone that can do it sooner..

Hey, Grosse Famille, want to go down on a weekend and place it ourselves? If somebody from Quebec City ever wakes up to the idea we could simply adopt it out to them.

If I had the time, I probably would have done it already!

 

But, I'm sure that if you find a partner willing, that would be great.

Ok guys, I found someone to place a nice little multi in Québec City.

 

I'll be his assistant on this. So, if there are any special request (other than the page setup (logos and armories)) let me know.

 

And, I'll let you know when the cache page is ready.

 

Thanks for you patience.. :bad:

 

Edit: Latest update!

 

The cache should be in place within the next 2 weeks!

It tells me that he said:

very funny to make jokes political it is not strong but since you have start

if you had used the two official languages of Canada

perhaps that Quebec would not have been excluded from the beginning without resentment

Uh, we ARE one big happy family right?

La cachette d'Edmonton a été trouvée aujourd'hui, mais pas notée. laissé tomber de quelques Geocoins et TB.

 

Oui mon ami, on le signifie tout pour rire. C'est également totalement une chose canadienne pour faire l'amusement de vos voisins à l'est. Plus l'est vous allez plus, le plus drôle. ; ^)

 

Je repose ma caisse avec cette explication qui des sommes il vers le haut de mieux. Apprécier !

Double-Translation is the worst!

 

Here's what your French text reads like when translated back to English (using goggle translation):

The hiding-place of Edmonton was found today, but was not noted. dropped from some Geocoins and TB. Yes my friend, one means it very to laugh. It is also completely a Canadian thing to make the recreation of your neighbors in the east. More is you go more, funniest. ; ^) I put back my case with this explanation which naps it to the top of better. To appreciate! “The Rant - Actresses”

 

Don't worry about me.. I can take a joke! But I guess there is some truth about that going-east thing! :D

okay I need the extra day sorry, between rain and sick kids it was not happening, but tomorrow is sunny and hubby is home.

 

Just a note to those who go to find it, email me before going for it so I can put something special in it for you (that and I can check it is not muggled between finds!)

After a number of unforseen difficulties the Regina leg is up and running on GCXY08. No first find yet, but I am hoping that that will be solved in the glorious weather we are having this weekend.

Ca avance : aujourd'hui, les indices ont été collectés, l'emplacement final de la cache défini. J'écris la description la semaine prochaine. Merci.
It (Quebec City cache) is coming along. Today (meaning yesterday!), the clues have been collected and the final location has been identified. I will write the description next week. Thanks.

Looks like everyone has great cache discriptions. The final set up is one where you use the clues to find the container to possible locations of where the final cache is hidden it is up to you to go to those locations and find which one is right. (thus giving you a tour of the city) it is not a discriptive tour so as not to give people any hints on where the final is. It will be up soon just have to get the final word from reviewers and that is taking a little longer but no worries.

 

so who is getting close to going for the final?

Share this post


Link to post

One question.

 

Do all the caches contain a clue for the final? Or, all the caches a pre-requisit to log the final? (Ok, that 2 questions!)

 

Quebec City cache is almost ready, should be sent to the reviewer this weekend.

Share this post


Link to post

All caches contain a clue for the final. You won't be able to find the final without visiting all of the 10 caches in the series.

 

In the future, there will be a 3 territory bypass that if you get those 3, then you can go for the final, but I still need cachers in those 3 territories.

I've replied. :(
Thanks e&b. Got it.

 

And, just to keep you updated with the QC cache.. Last night, I've sent back the translation to English to Goos38. So, he should finalise his page setup shorlty.

 

Will let you know when it's sent for review with GC number.

Ok, I've got a good news and a bad news.

 

:huh: The good news is that the Quebec City cache has been submitted to the reviewer: GCYVE8.

 

:o The bad news is that, final location is too close to another stage of another multi.

 

Will keep you posted. :yikes:
