I saw this Friday night while M was at camp and couldn`t wait to tell her about it. We had a full weekend, but first thing Monday morning, we were armed with printouts leading us to two caches in our neighborhood, a camera, a pen and pencil for signing the logs, and a handful of our handmade flower petal fairys to trade. We went to the first one, hunted around and ended up finding it - a great first cache and very exciting way to start. The second cache eluded us - probably with a GPS unit we might have had a better idea of which part of the park to look in.
Then yesterday, M and I drove to Winnipeg, and our friend Catherine hitched a ride with us - she had done a bit of geocaching with another friend, and I had printed out some possibilities along the #1 highway, so between the rains we made two stops. The first one was a disappointment, because even with the hint, the area was too big. Again, a GPS would have helped. I've priced some out, but wanted to find some caches and be sure we were in this for the long haul before we made that purchase. The second cache was much easier and a great place to stop, so our disappointment did not last long.
