Geocache Description:

Just off the Skyline Trail in the Gatineau Hills

This cache was originally called the "Skyline Trail Audiocache" because it contained a small tape recorder for people to leave voice logs. This tape recorder has been removed because it stopped working.

From P7 (free parking) you can expect to walk 5km in somewhat hilly terrain. Do the whole loop; there is a good lookout at the far end, and the back half is nice too.

The cache is well hidden but easy to find. It is in the cavity beneath the roots of a fallen maple tree about 4" in diameter. It is completely covered by leaves and bits of wood, with the area made to look as untouched as possible for camouflage. To compensate, in case my waypoint is off, I have tied two bits of pink trail marker ribbon to trees. The cache is hidden somewhere on the straight line joining them.

When visiting, please use common sense to ensure cache survival: Don't be obvious if there are people about, and make sure it is totally hidden again, and sealed up waterproof. This means the sealing surfaces need to be clean and unobstructed. Do not leave anything edible.

The container is a dry case, with inside dimensions approximately 17x13x8cm. Apart from the log book and pencils, it was initially stocked with:

  • Silvered foil thermal blanket
  • Musical birthday candle
  • Cassette of highlights from the opera "Carmen"
  • University of Waterloo Engineering Society bottle opener
  • Telephone handset cord untwister
  • Artificial mistletoe headband with flashing berries
  • Magic grow pills (not for eating) - drop into water and they turn into animal shapes
  • Brooch
  • Heart-shaped tin with a girl's necklace inside
  • Small stick-on reflectors
  • Twigs the Giraffe teenie beanie baby

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
