Geocache polar bear Dip on Vancouver Island

Recommended Posts

MarinerBC asked if I was going to put together a Meeting in Courtney for all the Island GeoCachers and I joked about doing a Polar bear dip on Jan 01 03 then my mind raced at the possibilities icon_eek.gif...I could set up a cache at a GREAT spot I know of we could come up with a time on New Years and all meet and bring in the new year at the same time with a Polar bear dip...What do you V Islanders think of this icon_biggrin.gif????

 

I'll post this on the General site too

We would need to have a BIG, BIG, BIG, Bonfire! Are we talking the ocean or the Puntledge? I have polar bear swimmed before and it can be tough to warm up again. Perhaps new years day would be better(warmer)? Isn't there a swim at the spit on new years? Then we could all find a pub (are they open new years?) and meet one another.

 

I want to die like my grandfather did, peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

Mariner - don't let us forget to pass on Tonto's Fox (you remember the travel bug that goes from event to event with the cacher who travelled the farthest - we beat you out by about 600 meters) before you head up to Courtenay. Also, the organizers should make sure everyone that comes has their home coordinates.

Well, we did two polar bear swims on New Year's Day last year, Sooke and Elk Lake. So anything goes, we figure. You still thinking saltchuck, Coast, or are we doing some ice chipping?

 

If I ain't sweatin', I ain't cachin. Are we there yet?
