How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The first of Ottawa's Urban Microcaches, this is in a fairly busy pedestrial area of the near west end, easily accessible.

In a 35mm film canister. Using a simple yet ingenious :) mounting mechanism. Note the hanging position and try to ensure it's similarly secure when returned.

Try to look nonchalant and wait until there is nobody breathing down your neck before accessing the cache. If you're looking for it, you'll probably see it easily once in close proximity.

Bring a pen/pencil to mark the log book. Wait for a quiet moment to replace the cache! Cover of night is a good option. It's a pretty safe area to be wandering about.
