GeoTour Complete

The Geocaching Capital of Canada GeoTour is now complete with the release of the final 20 caches.  Included are 2 more water access locations bringing that to a total of 20 in the entire GeoTour. Bring your kayak or canoe and take the time to enjoy the area.  Ten of the new caches are on trails.  Remember to wear orange if you are on the trials in the fall.  Moose hunting season is starting and deer hunting begins November 4th.  In this latest release you’ll also find homage to our local volunteer firefighters, a bit of history, a touch of magic, a tribute to a literary heroin and, if I’m not mistaken, you could run into a movie celebrity.  All this in just 20 caches.  Be prepared for a great outing in the Geocaching Capital of Canada.

Jonny Caches

Jonny Harris, (aka Constable George Crabtree from Murdoch Mysteries, and host of CBC's Still Standing show) was touring Wilberforce in the Geocaching Capital of Canada earlier this month. Jonny found this popular geocache.  Have you?

Rumor has it that there will be a new cache placed by Jonny and the Still Standing crew somewhere in the Geocaching Capital of Canada.  Stay tuned and like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/GeocachingCapitalofCanada/ for all the latest news.

More Fibre!

Fibre is important to you and we are doing our best to supply it.  No, not more bran, we mean fibre optic internet service.  And although it was scheduled to be installed by June 1, 2016, when do things go as scheduled?  But it IS coming to the municipal office in Wilberforce.  Until it does, the wifi connection at the municipal office is temporarily unavailable.  This doesn't effect the other handy wifi locations in Wilberforce:
Wilberforce Library N45 02.320 W078 13.428
Agnew's General Store, Wilberforce N45 02.266 W078 13.381
Royal Canadian Legion Branch 624 Wilberforce, N45 02.920 W078 13.110

FREE WiFi is also available at the following locations for your convenience. 
Cardiff Country Store N44 59.557 W078 00.912
Cardiff Library N44 59.625 W078 00.970

Holy Macro, We're Having a Contest

 

Join us on the Geocaching Capital of Canada Facebook page where we're holding a contest  It's geared to those who have completed some or all of the Geocaching Capital of Canada GeoTour, but anyone is welcome to join in. A macro picture of a GeoTour cache is published each Saturday. Guess which cache it is and enter by sending a message with the picture letter and the GCC cache #.  There is a monthly random draw from correct entries for a Geocaching Capital of Canada Geocoin.  A January winner was selected and we are into the February entries.

The Elusive Cell Game

Is it here, is it there, is it anywhere?  The seven hamlets and the 72,842 acres of Crown Land that make up the Geocaching Capital of Canada offer some of the most stunning scenery you’ll find in Canada. (a fact based on a totally unbiased opinion poll of selected Highlands East residents), but the trade off, at this point in time, is “less than ideal” cell phone reception.  Okay, I’ll fess-up—cell service sucks, some areas are a total black out.  To compensate make sure you have your cache info saved off line or printed out.  Good news is that the Geocaching Capital of Canada will gladly rent you a GPS, preloaded with all the GeoTour coordinates for only $5.00 a day. You may not be able to rely on “phone a friend” for help— but you can always bring a friend with you! In fact we highly recommend it.

Non-Hibernating Host

Some of our resorts do close down for the winter after Thanksgiving, but the House in the Village B&B in Wilberforce welcomes Geocachers year round. And Roberta at the Bostonian Motel in Wilberforce will always offer you comfy quarters.  Call ahead to make arrangements so you don’t find yourself snuggling in with some hibernating bear.
