O Canada Mystery Cache

This cache has been archived.

Cache-tech: Greetings from Geocaching.com

I have had no contact with the cache owner since my last note and there has been no notes posted to the cache page in that time. While I feel that Geocaching.com should hold the location for you and block other cachers from entering the area around this cache for a reasonable amount of time I don’t think we can do so any longer. Therefore, I have archived this cache.
When repairs to this cache are completed and it is time to have it reposted, it will be no problem. Just drop me a note and let me know the GC waypoint number of the cache or better yet, the URL of the cache page. You will still be able to access your cache page just as before by going to your “My Cache Page” and clicking the link (Mine) across the top and then click on this cache.

I will be more than happy to take a look at your cache again to see if it is still is within the guidelines of the Geocaching.com website for cache placement and posting.

I want to thank you for the time that you have taken to contribute to geocaching in the past and am looking forward to seeing your cache up and running in the future.

Thanks for your understanding,
Cache-tech

Cache Information

The cache is a medium sized 58 ounce stainless steel canister. I recommend that you don't take a strait line route to the cache, there is a better alternative path if you look for it. The cache is hidden completely out of sight.

At placement the cache contained Canadian trinkets and souvenirs. Once you have made your trades and signed the log book please return to it's original location.

Note: During the fall and winter months the normal route to the cache may be locked, this increases the difficulty of accessing the cache significantly.
