+northernpenguin Posted September 18, 2010 Share Posted September 18, 2010 I always find it interesting there is so much complaining about the requirement of passports and/or EDLs (which at least in Ontario, cost more than a standard Driver's Licence). The cost of a Canadian passport is roughly the same as the cost of two tanks of gas in a typical Canadian household's vehicle. A passport is a handy thing to have if you travel a lot. When factored in to the overall cost of a typical trip, it's insignificant. I'm not talking about people visiting who live in Buffalo - let's face it, most of the people who live within daytrip distance of Ontario have been here if they at all care to visit. I'm talking about the people visiting Geo-Woodstock from places like Florida, or Colorado. It's pretty tempting to hop over the border while visiting the event, especially if you're a statistics type cacher. I'm pretty sure there will be a good chunk of the GWS visitors heading to Niagara Falls since it's a whopping 2 1/2 - 3 hour drive from the event. Once you're there, Ontario is just across the river. Some people visiting from the Midwest will cross at Windsor, cache across Ontario to Niagara then drop down to Alleghany. It's not a large diversion in the routing. Same as if I was visiting Las Vegas, I'd want to drive out to Death Valley and/or the Grand Canyon while I was there. Oh wait, I did that when I was there. The Falls IS a tourist draw, (or Clifton Hill would have been boarded up years ago.... pretty sure the locals aren't going there) Quote Link to comment
