Yes, I'm from Montreal. I was going to place my first cache this week end but I guess I'll wait a week or two before all that new snow disappear...

There are a few of us, though not many in my area. I've had my cache out since Jan. and have had two 'groups' find it. I plan to put another cache out soon and then start putting up some posters and try to generate a few more.

Good idea Martin about that snow i visited my cache last weekend and un-snowed it.(so it will be more visible)in case someone decides to go.I've got one that logged it in so far.I don't blame everyone for waiting (like i do) this snow is pretty thick stuff.I also want to get some kind of info out for my area(Ottawa-Hull).I think i'll print some info and try to post it at mapping stores etc... I also want to post a few other caches like maybe around the parliement.(Maybe Our prime minister would join in) icon_biggrin.gif

Any Calgary area geocachers? I have family up there (fiancée's family, to be exact), and visit a couple times a year. It would be fun to hunt a cache up there next time we come (or plant one instead).

Another Canuck here. I live a little way north of Edmonton, and did my first hunt last weekend (although I have been lurking for a couple months). I am trying to arrange for a cache or two in my neighbourhood, but no promise as to when.

Welcome Boreal Jeff and congratulations on placing the first cache in Sault Ste-marie.You are the pionner in that area i guess icon_smile.gif

Don't worry about getting cachers to visit your cache.Like they say "Place it and they will come" You'll see it wont be long before it is logged in.Enjoy reading the different logs from your cache.Soon you will have others that will also find and then stash a cache. icon_wink.gif

Hey Hey,

Another Canuk enters the geocaching scene!

 

My name is Cedric aka ScorpS. First got wind of geocaching completely by fluke while channel surfing in my car, stoped on a CBC channel, they were playing some jazzy tunes, after wich they played a radio documentary on geocaching(like dave&nancy). Both me and my fiance thought it sounded cool. The next day(last sunday) checked out the webpage, and found one reasonably near(Gatineau Park - Meech Lake). We made plans to go next/this weekend, recruited my mom and dad, turned it into a day outing.

 

We went out and found the Meech lake cache today. Got my trophy, a Califoria Rasin toy icon_smile.gif Turns out we just missed Cliffy & Co, by about 1hour, we would have met up, but we trailed it, they bushwacked icon_biggrin.gif

 

PS JuDe le term de "Croix de St-Andre" (Crossbridging in english) vien du fait que St-Andre a ete crusifier sur une croix en X et non un T come Jesus. Ces ce que ma fiance me dit.

 

Not bad for a first post.

Awesome Scorps!.......Ya I guess I just missed you at Meech Lake. I had brought my girlfriend along for that one and figured I'd be cruel and take her the 2km thru the bush rather than follow the trail to the ridge.....hehehe I'm looking fwd to 300mag's latest as well. Hopefully I can finish early during the week and sneak up there for a hike after work. (I'm sure 300mag knows all about "Early Starts" and "Early finishes"...Right 300mag? LOL)

Hope she's got a sence of humour.

Well I think it's time to put my old Magellan GPS 2000 out to pasture.( had the thing since '95 lol) A second cacher located my cache today and also reported a deviation of 100 or so meters. Strange.....I'm since gone back out to the cache site and have come up with my initial waypoint. Datum and format is correct but the unit seems a bit funny these days. I certainly have had no problem finding other caches but then again I always use my old trusty Silva compass during the final stages off a hunt. I'm eyeballing the E-trex Legend at the local outdoors store. Looks like a nice little unit.

Cheers, Cliffy icon_smile.gif)

Guest 300mag

Well Cliffy don't know about the old mageland.It might be time to retire it lol.Anyway's lots of people here are using the little etrex.It seems like a nice little unit.I also like the mageland 315.I think it is superior by having a few more options like auto averaging and diff...screens.But both of them are excellent units.When i visit your cache this week i will bring both coordinates logged in and see what happens.Keeping you posted with the results. icon_wink.gif

Ps:One other thing you can do is take a few readings(waypoint) with your unit at the cache site.And test it(go to) to see how close it says you actually are from your cache.This would be simillar to averaging.

Thanks 300Mag, That would be great. I'll edit the cache info accordingly and will put off hiding my next one till I pick up a newer unit. I was out in Bells Corners yesterday at Lebaron's ( I had a delivery there....Honest!!! hehe) and was pricing various units. dadgum it's hard to walk out of that store without spending an entire paycheck. lol

Yes i know i'll be spending more than 1000$ bucks next week there.....and i can't wait.

I've had a Eagle Explorer for about 4 years and i also have a lowrance GN 12.I was about to buy a GM 100 ....then i decided to get a GPS just for GCing something good on battery's and simple. I am actually impressed by the receiving ability of this unit(GPS 315).I decided insteadof the GM 100 i'll wait for the ifinder

ok thats it after this i'm really going to bed lol.about the gm100 this is what i use.The unit is very accurate.I love the zoom feature .You can zoom out to 2000miles.I was looking at Florida maps (places i was last summer) in the unit the other day just by zooming out .Like i say the unit receives and locks in very very fast and solid even in my house.But the only problem it loves to munch batteries.So maybe lowrance will fix this prob with there newer units.
