Glad to do it! Of course now I have to find this thing (not necessary to be first though), just to get some sleep. First efforts have been negative.

Finally having a few moments to play this week... GC15TMK Ault Island's First would be my answer...

 

I'll go off to locate something to offer while I have time... and waiting for confirmation...

You are correct! Over to you!

 

Roger! I've been thinking about this one for a while... I'm not sure if it will be hard or not... this last one was a bit above average for my hunting, but I was thinking about Allstones lake and how many times I searched the same spot without seeing it.

So I backtracked on this last one and redid a search of where I thought it should be... this time I saw it fairly quickly...

but not one of my 3 minute finds for sure. Guess a full belly and some rest helps! This one I offering should be a bit easier I hope.

Hard to judge when you know where it is! North up for sure.

Got it, mystery lake GC2BA4F

 

Dale

 

Absolutely! I didn't think it was either hard or easy... Now you just have to go there and sign the log! :rolleyes:

 

I haven't even tried to yet, it appears to be a BEAR to get to... and I live here (broken vehicle). Then there are the uphill bits and weather. I think some go up by snowmobile to that valley... but I have yet to have an avalanche call out for there... I'd avoid that place until melt is over myself... a bit close quarters and steep.

 

Did you have any problems with it... I find it hard to avoid being either too hard or too easy, can't find any middle ground so far... I do tend to advertise the area as well, sort of a giveaway of sorts.

 

Lets see what you have up your sleeve... have at it!

It sounds like a trip to me. Still unfound even with the nice summer and fall we had . I think next summer I'm going to plan on finding some of those mountain caches but this one is interesting.

Did I find it hard, not really. Looked at your profile and your from elkford so I started there. The map looked like a mine may be close and some what knowing the area I just searched for a bare area and after 5 minutes I found it. Great game,and I have a cache inmind , but how do I capture the screen shot?

no such luck, Picture editor?

 

That would be like PhotoShop or Paint Shop pro etc... an image editor. I'm not sure if these days even MS Paint might do it.

 

It isn't that hard to do... to post it here you need it online somewhere... I'll email you through your profile about this.

Maybe it could be a candidate for the LCC, but first you need to know where to go. :anitongue:

This would be right up your alley... (the map hunt that is) in plain sight, not found as often as it should be etc... :rolleyes:

 

I take it the weather stopped your brothers trip to the WBT / B&O pair? It was still good at the beginning of Dec...

 

Have fun with this though!

While waiting for GEO This to confirm... did you have any difficulty with the find?

 

Doug 7rxc... NOW I can play again... thanks!

Not too bad. I think it was mostly just luck because any other time I looked for them I had no success at all. Why couldn't you play last time?

 

BTW, will the forum not let me put I picture on that I saved to gc.com? I tried and then previewed it and it didn't show up in the preview.

Let's see... admitted getting skunked to MaliBooBoo, let's say I was busy... yeah and distracted... and apparently my 'high tech' method of looking for airports wasn't that fast... or complete either it seems.

 

On that subject, thanks to Savant9 for the .kmz link... I can see that being a big help or not... I was able to recreate my search.. but not my bad eyesight... I was using an incomplete list from the gov't as a .pdf file manually. Didn't have Stewart listed.

Maybe they can't get a licence for the airstrip... I went up there several times and didn't see the town at all... tired. One has to do this clearheaded for sure, especially manually.

 

I'm now able to say that I used .kmz to find the northern Quebec airport.. saw it the other search too! Had no trouble locating the last one manually... those big bullseyes help...

 

Waiting patiently for next one...
