sir dumil: Unfortunately, the rate of erosion and river level fluctuations is making this series too difficult to keep maintained. I hadn't realized this when I set up the series. I am happy that a few geocachers were able to find a bit of joy in this series, but I've come to understand that I cannot realistically keep up with maintaining it, so I'm archiving it.

Geocache Description:

This is a series of boat-accessible caches mostly along the shores of an island south of the Patrofska Bridge in the North Saskatchewan River.

I love combining passionate hobbies!
For me, the combination of geocaching with paddling is irresistable.
I hope you'll agree.

This is a great opportunity to sharpen your paddling and maneouvering skills or, perhaps, to teach yourself some new ones.  You'll likely see lots of wildlife as well.  The island and riverbank are teeming with many varieties of wildlife.

The caches are mostly inaccessible from shore, but readily accessible by boats, especially kayaks and canoes.  Be sure to check the river's flow rate before you head out.  The North Saskatchewan River flow rate is reported in near real-time by the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency.  At the time of placement, flow rate was around 500 cubic metres per second (cms) which was noticeable but quite manageable.

You are searching for a cammo'd bison tube hanging from a live branch of a tree or shrub over-hanging the water.

The container contains only a RitR log scroll, so please bring a writing stick.

I had a lot of fun placing these.  May you have lots of fun finding them.

Join us on July 19, 2014 and experience Saskatchewan like you’ve never known. It’s not just the flat, boring prairie we’re famous for. Enjoy a warm welcome, incredible caching trails, rich history and beautiful scenery. We’ll bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
