LMGA - Surrey Heritage Tour Multicache - Episode 18

Hey geocachers! As it turns out, Mr. LANMonkey can't count above ten, so episodes 18 & 19 are out of order. To make up for that boo boo, I'm providing another Geocaching Two-Fer Tuesday. This  episode was filmed a couple of weeks ago in Cloverdale BC, when Mrs. LANMonkey & I did the "Surrey Centre Heritage Tour."

It was a fun cache, with a fair bit of walking (and some elevation change, for those who don't handle that well).  If it's a nice day out, come with water! In my opinion, this multi *is* stroller friendly, so you can bring the kids, but you *will* be walking alongside some busy roads so use your judgement on that.

Over-all we really enjoyed this, and even though we've spent a LOT of time in that immediate area, we still learned quite a bit about the heritage of that part of Surrey.

Thanks for the cache!

Cache safely, and cache often.

LMGA - Episode 019 - Parksville Part 2

Episode 19 features the second part of our spring adventure in Parksville, Qualicum, Nanoose, and Nanaimo. In this episode, Manta Rayz joins us as we geocache along rivers, beaches, marinas, and the "Iron Family" power trail - that takes the idea of power trail pretty seriously!

While we were there we logged our 800th find, at ICU @ Columbia Beach, a webcam cache we've wanted to "log"  for some time, but it was not operating until recently.

We moved on some TBs, and made sure that we also visited the top five most "favourite" caches in the region, as featured in episode 14. make sure you watch our episodes to the end to catch our bloopers!

Thanks for checking out our latest episode.

LMGA - Cache #1000 - Episode 017

Thanks for checking in on our latest episode. Last weekend some old and new geocaching friends and family joined us to find the first geocache in BC - Treehugger (GC1DD). It was a great, and fun adventure in Pacific Spirit Regional Park near the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.

Joining us for the cache find was goaliegirl38, Donner, Manta Rayz, and ecache. What a great time with great friends.  We then proceeded to grab the rest of the traditional caches nearby and along the beach.

As always we encourage you all to cache safely, and cache often!

Geocaching Plans for This Weekend?

Team LANMonkey goes with friends & family to find their 1,000th geocache tomorrow.

We’re in search of BC’s first geocache “Treehugger”(GC1DD) located near the Point Grey area of Vancouver (UBC endowment lands).   

We'll be sure to post a video record of our adventures, and our "official" team photographer Donner will be along so FaceBook will be out of storage by Sunday. ;-)

Cache safely, and cache often!

LMGA - Ep 016 - 9 Cache Types in 1 Day

Welcome to our show notes for episode 16 of LANMonkey's Geocaching Adventures. Travel with us from the Fraser Valley in British Columbia to Bellingham, WA as we search out nine different cache types in one day. Our adventure was successful, in that we found one each of the following cache types:
  1. Puzzle
  2. Traditional
  3. Event (WWFM X Flashmob event)
  4. WhereIGo
  5. Letterbox
  6. EarthCache
  7. Multi
  8. Virtual
  9. Webcam
It was great fun. We met some new cachers when we participated in the 2013 WWFM X,  visited some beautiful locations, and just generally had a great time in Canada and the USA.  So that's one more challenge accepted & completed!

If you've completed this or a similar challenge, tell us about it, and the highlights of that adventure.

Cache safely, and cache often!
