The Return To Hinton

Apr 23, 2010 we decided to take a break and head back to Hinton after 2 yrs. The weather held out for most of the trip and we were able to explore the town and Switzer Provincial Park. One of the highlights the trip was the fact we found our first ever Difficulty 5 cache.

On the Sunday, instead of heading home, we went the opposite direction to Jasper and then onward across the Alberta/BC border so that we could get our first ever BC cache and also so Tatterhood could save she's been to another Canadian Province.

On the way back, we stopping in Jasper for some lunch at Jasper Pizza (I highly recommend) and then it was back home. In all we found 37 caches and got to explore some really interesting areas.

CARW2010

March 13, 2010 marked the begining of our caching adventures this year. It started with the annual Edmonton Car And Release Winter Event... aka CARW2010. The event involved all area cachers hiding winter friendly, non micro caches in the Edmonton Region. The caches all get published on the same date and are then free game to grab.

We picked the closest to our house to begin the adventure and when the starting time passed we came up with the First To Find (FTF). MadCapR joined us in an all day frenzy that led us through St Albert, Edmonton and into the acreages of Spruce Grove. In the end we came up with over 20 finds including 6 FTF's!

It was a great day... hopefully one of many to come.
