Geocache Description:

This park was featured in the Ankeny Register a while back. I went to check it out and decided it needed a cache.

There has been a lot of competition this summer for FTFs. I amplacing these two caches as a challenge to all the FTF hunters. Its too easy to download the cords, print the page and run for the door. I wanted to make it a little more fun. So I placed these two puzzle caches.
Mr. Wildwood is Canadian and has only been living in the USA for four years. So we thought it would be fun to share a few facts about Canada. The above coordinates are for my Snow in July cache. To get the REAL coordinates for this cache you will have to answer a few questions about Canada.

N 41° AB.CDE

W 093°FC.GHI

1.)In what year did Captain Harry Colebourn buy a bear cub he named Winnipeg after his hometown in Manitoba? The bear we all know now as Winnie the Pooh. B9BA

2.)What was the lowest temperature recorded in Canada? -DF°

3.)What was the hottest temperature ever recorded in Canada? AD°

4.)How many National Parks are in Alberta? C

5.)How many teams are there in the Canadian Football League? E

6.)How many time zones in Canada? D 7.)How many rivers flow through Fort McMurray Alberta? G

8.)The Washington Capitals hold the record for the least games won in a single NHL season. How many hockey games did they win in the 1974-75 season? H

9.)Sir Charles Tupper was Canada’s ?th Prime Minister. I (oops not where I got my first answer from. Real answer is ?th + one = I)


Happy hunting! There is a YJTB for the FTF.

I have had several emails asking to check coordinates for this cache. Apparently there are several places to find the answers on the internet and they don't all give the same answer. If you want me to confirm your coordinates before you go out, please send me an email through gc.com. I am on the internet every day, so will get back to you right away. It seems that several people say the coordinates are way off - may have to get out to check this one and update it.
