Caching At Blomidon Provincial ParkAug 26, 2009

Prior to having to leave the Blomidon Provincial Park because of Hurricane Bill we had the chance to do some caching along the Jodrey, Woodland and Bordon Brook trails. These trails lead to and meet at the Look Off Trail which, once at the end, offers a fantastic view of the Minas Basin.

Caching At Blomidon Provincial Park

Our hike took us up the Jodrey Trail, then out on to the Look-off Trail and then we came back down the Woodlands Trail and then on to Borden Brook Trail.

The Look-off Trail is a short trail, only 1.6 km (1 mi.) that ends at a viewing station that offers views that makes the whole trip worthwhile. You get a great view of the Minas Basin as well as Five Islands Provincial Park which is located about 24 km (15 mi.) across the bay.

The Jodrey Trail is a 6 km (3.7 mi.) long trail that skirts the 183 m (600-ft.) sea cliffs with numerous viewing stations along the way overlooking the Minas Basin. This trail winds through a sugar maple, yellow birch and beech forest and near the park’s only bog. At Indian Springs Brook, a cairn commemorates the gift of 162 ha (400 acres) to the park by the late Roy Jodrey.

Mrs_Go Turns 100 While Geocaching!Oct 01, 2008

Yep, that’s right! Mrs_go turns 100! She has reached the big One-Oh-Oh! One hundred Geocaches that is!

After sitting at number 99 for the past week or so we finally got out yesterday and she was able to topple this Geocaching hurdle. She says it’s not about the numbers but reaching this milestone has been a common topic of conversation around here (When are we going caching? When are we going caching? Are we going caching today? Are we going caching today?).

Does this photo look like one who doesn’t care about the numbers!? :)

Mrs_Go Turns 100 While Geocaching

Unfortunately, the video of her happy dance didn’t come out well enough to post. :(

We celebrated this special occasion with water and trail mix. A few bumblebees and crows attended. Party, party, party.

A big tip of the Tilley to you mrs_go! Here’s to the next 100!

Keep on cachin’!

Cool Cache Calling CardsMay 21, 2008

Woohoo! Our Geocaching signature cards were ready this morning and we just picked them up. These will come in really handy when we meet other Geocachers as well as dropping them off into caches to say that we were there.

Here is what the front of the cards looks like:

And here is what the back of the cards looks like:

They are 3 1/2″ X 2″, the size of a standard business card.

They arrived just in time too because we leave early tomorrow morning for GeoWoodstock VI where we’re looking at meeting a lots of other Geocachers. Last count we heard was that they are expecting 2700!

Keep on cachin’!

Travel Bugs Are Missing In Action!?Apr 19, 2008

Are Travel Bugs like socks that get lost in the wash or, like Bermuda, is there a Geocaching Triangle? Or is it just us? Three of the four Travel Bugs that we moved have gone missing!

Last month we received a notice via the TB Watchlist that Pepper, a small, huggable stuffed bear, that we moved across the country last September is no where to be found. After viewing the logs of the other three TB’s we see that two of them were picked up but never released again.

Travel Bugs Are Missing In Action

We found Pepper on 9/17/2007 in Gathai’s Secret Stash, near a great park just off the Crowsnest Highway, BC on our way to beautiful Christina Lake. Once home, or over 4000Kms later, we dropped him off at The Troll on 10/03/2007. On 03/24/2008 a log entry noted that Pepper was not in the cache. :(
