BLAMMO is for those who are excited and enthusiastic about writing their geocacheing logs!! So excited, in fact, that they invent new words to describe their experience. Some times the best ones are about blunders or things that went wrong along the way. Add a few photos to the mix and the rest of us get a feel for each cache as well as the other geocachers in the area. A lot of work goes into the planning and planting of a cache so the least we can do is return the favor by describing the experience.
The following examples are entertaining reads.
BLAMMO is a multi waypoint cache on west end trails. It is about 4-5 kilometres in length and you will have another kilometre back to your car from the final cache location. There is an obvious parking lot near the posted coordinates. You will find the trail network will take you where you need to go. At each stop (there are 5 not including the cache) along the way you will encounter a different kind of waypoint. None should be difficult to locate but only one is a plastic tag. Look carefully and please leave things the way you found them and don’t remove any items. It is certainly possible to do this one at night but it is likely a lot easier during the day. Depending on the season you will be able to bike, hike, ski or snowshoe. While planting the cache I encountered deer, a porcupine, woodpeckers and plenty of chicadees (bring some seed).
The cache container is a large peanut butter container (washed twice in the dishwasher) so keep your trade items small. There are some prizes for the first few finders. There are two LCBO gift cards, two Simpsons bottle openers and three package parts for mega chocolate bars (Take one and I will arrange to give you the rest of the bar). If you are in a group please share a prize and leave the rest for the next group. For those that follow there are several of my laminated muffin recipes.
In the spirit of the cache, please share some interesting details of your experience and a pic or two. Now off to the woods, BLAMMO!!
