The Fifth Annual Spring Kickoff 2010Mar 28, 2010

Well, they did it again. The Fifth Annual Spring Kickoff to Geocaching was a huge, no, a HUGE, success! There were 175 Geocachers that attended the event from 112 Geocaching teams! It’s getting bigger every year!

Canuck and Finn were kept very busy at the registration table getting everyone logged in:

The Fifth Annual Spring Kickoff 2010

It was a great time as we mingled about, chatted, laughed and relaxed with friends old and new. Stories were swapped, tales were told and plans were made for the upcoming months. The atmosphere, added to by the ambience of the pub, was one reminiscent of trappers coming in to town after a long winter. Mmmmm… there are a lot of similarities: :)

Atlantic Geofest 2009 And Hurricane BillAug 24, 2009

The old adage about ‘short and sweet’ was never more true than this year’s GeoFest. With the impending arrival of Hurricane Bill the festivities were cut a bit short BUT a great time was still had by all!

As with Geofests of the past Atlantic GeoFest 2009 was held at Blomidon, a Provincial Park located on the cliffs of the North Mountain, overlooking the Minas Basin, here in Nova Scotia. With over 1800 acres of natural attractions, majestic trees, trails and wildlife the park is the perfect place to let Geocachers out to play.

The cachers began to arrive on Friday afternoon and continued to arrive into the early evening. With the forecasted storm, many of the expected attendees regrettably did not arrive but those who did proved to be faithful campers who showed what Caching Campers are really made of!

Friday evening was spent relaxing around the GeoFest Café, chatting into the wee hours of the morning. Several cachers who missed last year’s event took part in the ‘Night Cache’ which was set up specifically for the annual Geofest.

Cape Breton Highlands Park EventJul 21, 2009

We had a wonderful time this past weekend at the Cape Breton Highlands Park Event that was held in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park here in Nova Scotia.

Cape Breton Highlands Geocaching

The 950 square kilometer (590 sq mi) Cape Breton Highlands National Park with its spectacular highlands and ocean scenery is located on Cape Breton Island, on the northeast tip of Nova Scotia, Canada. The world-famous scenic highway, the Cabot Trail, runs through the park.

The event was part of the park’s First Annual Geocaching Weekend, of which the highlight was the introduction of the park’s new Geocache series, the ‘EcoCache Geocache Challenge’, and the release of the cache coordinates.

The Ecocache Geocache Challenge is a five part series of Geocaches that the park developed with the help and support of the Atlantic Canada Geocaching Association to introduce people to our natural and cultural heritage.

Each of the caches takes you to a different trail within the park and in order to complete all five Geocaches you will hike between 17 to 21 kms and drive from Chéticamp to Ingonish. Total time for this series of Geocaches will be 6-9 hours. (They do not have to all done in one day! :) )

When you complete all five of the caches, you receive a limited edition Parks Canada Geocoin.
