Welcome

Welcome Introduction

Geocaching is a worldwide adventure sport which utilizes GPS devices to hide and seek hidden containers called geocaches. (Learn more about geocaching) To get started geocaching, all you need is a GPS receiver and a geocache location. (Learn more about getting started) You can find a nearby geocache location at geocaching.com by entering an address or town into the search box.

The Manitoba Geocaching Association (MBGA) strives to advance the sport of geocaching through social activities, public education and promotion of geocaching. (Learn more about the MBGA).

Cacher of the Month - June 2007

TK421

TK421 - Cephas & Kelly
  1. You are known as a cacher who goes for the tough physical caches that require a bit of courage, what motivates you when the going gets rough?
  2. Well, this is really a 2 part answer. First and foremost, I don’t like going for a cache and not finding it. Actually, I hate it with a passion – If I know the cache is there, I’m going to find it, I’m very stubborn that way…. Second, I really like to find something that I feel like I worked for, anyone can find something stuck in a pine tree.

  3. When did you start Geocaching?
  4. Geocaching.com tells me that TK421 (which is my wife Kelly and myself) became a member on April 27, 2005, but really I was a geocacher at heart for much longer than that. I grew up with scavenger hunts / treasure hunts and roaming around in the bush looking for “stuff”, and I remember hearing about Geocaching when I was younger (and with no money to buy fancy toys like “GPS”) My wife just came along for the ride in the beginning, but has grown to love it as well.
