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. How did you find out about Geocaching?
  2. One day, in May 2004, I (the Queen) did an Internet search on GPS and games for my beloved hubby, Joker 1. He wanted to teach a course on high tech geography (G.I.S. etc) and needed some background information. Lo and behold I stumbled onto the geocaching.com website.

  3. When did you start Geocaching?
  4. We started geocaching in July 2004 a day after our oldest son bought a Gpsr with his 10th birthday money from friends. Our first cache was in Steinbach called "Stony Brook Cache" by riyehn . The GPS signals were wacky and our crew of five looked in all the wrong places and found it within ½ an hour by luck.
