GC95B Traditional Cache 02 - Peaceful Waters Cougar cache
  As with the oldest, this cache is very hard to get to.

GC1AF6 Traditional Cache 14 - John Dean

  Another Plantman cache along the San Juan hiking trail.

  It's great to see these old caches getting adopted to keep them alive.

  This is the first cache in the Parksville / Nanaimo area. It is accessed from a good trail system but finding the 'right' trail can be very challenging..

GC2F26 Traditional Cache 19 - Mt. Doug
  The oldest on Mt. Doug and one of the most visited caches on Vancouver Island.
