Grandma & Grandpa's TB Hotel and Geo-Post Office
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
I changed the difficulty levels now that the snow has buried everything.
What is a Geo-Post Office? Well, A geo-post office is a cache set up to exchange post cards or letters between cachers! This is also a TB hotel.
This cache is on private property, the house where my wife grew up, but permission has been granted and they notified the neighbors (my brother in law's in-laws) that Cacher's would be coming.
Access will be best from West Stone Road. Parking is allowed on the side of the road and there is plenty of room to pull off on to the grass. This cache will be a D-5:T-5 in the winter time!

Here is how it works:
Caches are placed to hold postcards. Each postcard will have a short message and a forwarding address on it. The address will contain the person's name that you are trying to send the postcard to, their home city, and a destination cache. The idea is to move postcards between Geo-Post Offices until they reach their destination. When you move a postcard or message from one place to another, let the person who it's being sent to know where you moved it to, because they might be near enough to go and pick it up. If you move a postcard from one Geo-Post Office to another, please move it closer to the city or cache!
You can use the following picture as a guide to the format to use when writing up a postcard address. (see below)
You can send any message you want to anyone you want!
How do you get started? Easy! Just write up your postcard and drop it in the Geo-Post Office!
If there are any postcards in the cache when you arrive, feel free to forward them on if you can. If not, don't worry, just leave them for the next cacher.
The cache is a 50 cal. ammo can. There is no swag in the cache, just logging material and space for the postcards. There is plenty of room for Travel Bugs. Please don't feel that you have to run out and spend your hard-earned cash on a postcard at the store. You can print and laminate a huge variety of postcards off the internet.
I copied this text for this cache pretty much word for word from Zonker's Moncton post office cache, in fact he has a list of the other Geo-Post Offices in the area, so please visit GCTTCZ for those details.
