The Maritime Geocaching Association » Mapping Software

If we have viewed the map of the location earlier, then we can check the OFFLINE mode box which will use the saved files to generate the maps. The download file is sized at 9MB; once downloaded, the installation is quite standard and one has the application up and running in no time. This means that in order to look up the directions of someplace, we need to have internet connected to our computer.


The Maritime Geocaching Association » PEI

In the unlikely event of a tie at this stage, the competitors still tied will fight a grueling match of best of 3 rock – paper – scissors. PEI cachers are welcome to participate, but please keep in mind you cannot claim your own caches. As long as you come to the BBQ afterward, you can claim this event as having attended. Here we are, 6 years after the first RDD, and still the stories are told about it.


The Maritime Geocaching Association » Cacher of the Month

So I spent a few minutes and looked it up and then explained it to one of my friends and asked her if she wanted to go try one or two, and so off we went near the end of the afternoon with a car GPS, pretty much NO idea what we were doing, and we ended up getting 5 – pretty good considering the circles we walked in.


The Maritime Geocaching Association » General

The fourth can provide traction if you’re stuck and your wheels are spinning (kitty litter has larger particles and users report that it works better than sand). Pack in your car: a blanket, flares, a shovel, a small bag of sand or kitty litter, matches and a candle in an old coffee can. If you end up stuck in a snowbank or on the side of the road, press your accelerator gently to see if you can get free.
