Description   EN   

This cache is hidden as a tribute to the first geocache we ever found, exactly three years ago. The cache is located very close to where we found that cache.


And because it's a tribute to the first cache we ever found (GC2BX5N), we decided to also make it our first multi-cache hide.

At the posted coordinates you will find the redirect in the format ##:### and ##:###. Use those numbers to complete the coordinates for the final location: N 43 ##.### and W 79 ##.###. P.S.: you CAN stop on Grays Rd near the posted coordinates, but CANNOT PARK between 2 am and 7 pm Monday - Friday.

If you drove to stage one, you will probably want to drive to the final, although it is within walking distance. If you want parking coordinates, add 00.002 to the North and 00.033 to the West coordinates for the final.

This is how we were introduced to geocaching. I vaguely recall hearing about geocaching sometime between 2001 - 2003, but it was likely described as a “high-tech” outdoor game and while I loved being outdoor, I was far from being high-tech. In fact, I was pretty low-tech. I can’t imagine how many geocaches I passed by on numerous hikes and road trips during the next decade (not to mention how much spare time I had then compared to now). Anyway, fast forward to 2012 and a conversation with a relative about geocaching. So I finally did a google search for ‘geocaching”. What I expected to find was a few geocaches hidden in far off places where people rarely venture. And what I discovered was a number of geocaches within walking distance from home. And so, we walked and searched…and searched…and searched (did I mention I still didn’t own any type of GPS receiver). And just when I was starting to think it was a waste of time, we found that cache. That was our first view of what a geocache looked like, our first time opening a log book and seeing all the names and dates, the first trade-items we ever saw. In the three years since, we’ve found over 800 caches of 12 types, not to mention Waymarking and other related GPS games and outdoor treasure hunts like benchmark hunting. We've earned geocoins, sent travel bugs on races, attended a Mega event, had photo's taken with Signal the Frog, saw the Original Can of Beans, visited many “interesting and useful locations”. We’re looking forward to many more years with this hobby. We've recently expanded our horizons to include other sites such as Opencaching North America and letterboxing at AtlasQuest and LbNA. The variety of cache keeps it interesting!
