How did all you geocachers do this past long weekend? I personally took advantage of the clear dry weather and tackled 5 caches and found 4. icon_biggrin.gif

Personally I wimped out this long weekend. icon_frown.gif Not many new caches locally here in Ottawa so I was gonna plant another but the girlfriend and kids were whining about the heat......So I decided on 2 cases of beer instead. LOL

We haven't been out caching since we got back from our extended cross-Canada caching trip. Instead, we've been working feverishly around the house - getting it ready to sell.

 

We had so much fun on our trip that, in a way, you could say caching changed our lives. We're pulling up stakes and moving to Calgary. Probably won't do much more caching until we finish the move.

Did not have time to look for any caches. But I did check the one I placed in the Muskoka's this weekend. Then sat at the lake.

We spent two days placing a cache deep in the Cape Breton Highlands in fairly intense heat.

 

Then we checked up on our other caches in Cape Breton, one wasn't visited yet, and the other was stolen.

 

I can't believe someone would go to the trouble of climbing a mountain in the middle of nowhere to ruin the fun of others.

Well, it does ask how we did this long weekend, so why don't we just revive it and make it applicable to this long weekend? I had four days off, and got three caches. Pitiful. I was busy doing homework. Went out this morning with the intention of getting all the X-treme caches, but only managed to hit 4 and find 3. Ugh.

I guess I had a busier weekend than most. Tackled 5 caches, found 4, but hid 16 during the whole weekend. I was a busy little Insp Gadget! Go-Go Gadget Legs!

Puppy and I had fun on Saturday clamouring around the woods in the pouring rain with TBA and MysteryWoman. 4 finds total, although I had to sit one out after getting myself into a bout of dehydration/heat exhaustion (which I need to stop doing!).

 

Good times were had by all. icon_wink.gif

Woo Hoo, hit 6 and found 6. And as a bonus, found 2 Locationless Caches, one of which is very rare and hard to find in our neck of the woods. Grand total was 8, bringing me to 98 Caches Found, I am saving a VERY SPECIAL cache for find number 100.

I travelled about 950 caching kilometres this weekend, hit 6 caches (3 of which I'd found before), was rushed through a 15km/h tidal current in whirlpools, came close to being flattened by a flying sea lion (yes, a real one!) and almost ended up dead twice. Good times!

I did 5 regular caches this weekend, plus one 6 part (in close proximity) multi-cache. I would have done more, but I got tired of paying park fees on the first multi-cache I was trying.

Guess you don't have any 58-part multi-caches out there that take 6 FULL weeks to complete! icon_wink.gif

The weekend started out with a no-find, then went downhill further with two more no finds to start the day sunday icon_frown.gif it picked up after that though. Totals for the weekend: about 30km of hiking, 15km of canoeing, 8 caches visited, and five finds. all and all a very enjoyable weekend in Algonquin Park.

Now to plan a canoe trip to hit all the backcountry caches in the park icon_biggrin.gif

This weekend I found one cache, attempted another and visited one of my own. I was also going to do some maintenance on another of my caches, left the GPS in the car, and couldn't find the cache! In my defense, the area looks a lot different in the late summer than it did last winter. icon_smile.gif

Well I guess I had a good geocaching weekend icon_razz.gif We went to Fredericton NB to visit relatives and to geocache with my bro in law (ace 226). We logged 5 on Saturday (had a late start), 8 on Sunday (3 failed ones) and 2 on Monday. Weather was great, 24'C on Sat and Sun but light rain on Mon. Managed to get a family turkey dinner in icon_eek.gif Great weekend indeed!!

I think this is our record so far. Travelled from B.C. to Reno and did 32 caches on the weekend. And only one no find, which it turned out they archived between printing the sheet and us looking for it. icon_eek.gif Don't you hate when that happens.

A very good weekend indeed.
