Geocachers in Hamilton, Stoney Creek or Dunnville, Ontario

Recommended Posts

I plan on being in that area at the beginning of December and want to look for some caches. Could someone from there:

 

1. Give me a the latitude and longitude of some place near Dunnville or Stoney Creek so I can do a search for Geocaches. (is there any other way to do this search?)

 

2. Recommend caches of special interest. I will only have about four to six hours to do some caching and want to hit as many as possible.

Stoney Creek, ON N43° 13.707' W079° 45.809'

 

I got these coords by doing a city search on my Garmin V.

 

Or you can look up cache GC13A4 and then search for nearby caches. That's a cache I found in that area recently.

When I don't have access to Mapsource, I like this government site for getting general latitude/longitude coordinates for Canadian cities and towns:

Although I live in Ajax, which is on the other side of Toronto from Hamilton, I know the area fairly well.

 

If you can email me, or post an approximate address in Hamilton where you will be, I can get the coordinates and find you the nearest cache, then you could do a search from there for the closest. Actually, I have Streets and Trips loaded with all of the Canadian Caches, so I can help with the other cities as well, though I am not familiar with them. If you can provide me with a rough address, I can get coordinates as well as nearest caches to base searches on, if you like..

I used the coordinates and found some nearby caches. I don't know the exact address I will be staying at (Wife's side of the family).

 

Hope the weather will coorperate when I'm down there.
