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).

  1. What was it about geocaching that got you hooked into the game?
  2. I learned about Geocaching by reading an Air Canada inflight magazine article. It sounded really cool. I mentioned it to a friend a little while later and he mentioned he had a GPS. I borrowed and eventually bought it from him (a Magellan Meridian). I played with that thing for months before finding my first cache. When I finally ventured out to find one, it was Everything Cats, by Damgiz. I couldn’t go and get one that was a few hundred metres from my house. No. I had to travel to Nopiming Provincial Park. I’m glad I did. Finding something like an ammo can in a natural setting like that was probably a catalyst in grabbing my interest. If I had simply found a altoids tin on a picnic table with a drippy logbook, I may not have been as interested. Being out there in the forest, part of that secret, was intoxicating. I knew I was hooked. Duracell stock has risen dramatically since that day.

  1. How did you find out about Geocaching?
  2. Through my sister “Teamtonin”, in Ontario. She got hooked on it after being introduced to the sport by my older brother “Uncle Ralph”. My younger brother also caches, “Markhammer”.

  3. What was it about geocaching that got you hooked into the game?
  4. The thrill of the hunt and most especially, enjoying the gift of sharing someone’s special place. Oh yeah, and sibling rivalry.

  5. Have you cached in any other provinces, countries?
  6. Yes, in Canada: Ontario and Alberta. In the U.S.: North Dakota, Minnesota, New York, Rhode Island & Massachusetts.
