This cache has been archived.

Bradinn: We haven't had a chance to get to this cache for maintenance in far far too long. We know that a maintenance visit is long overdue and I hope to get one in within the next couple of days. However last winter we found that the area definitely becomes rather soaked and hazardous during this time of year, so for now we are temporarily archiving this cache until we can have a look at it and determine if it is safe to replant it in the same area, or if it should be stashed away safely until after the winter snows have departed.

Geocache Description:

This cache is located in Ajax, off of Duffins creek near a popular fishing area for local anglers.

When we placed the cache this area was quite nice, although you should be warned, it does have the potential to become overgrown in the summer times, and the mosquito factor can be quite high in hot muggy weather.

No serious bushwacking is required for this cache. It is located approximately 20 meters off of the main trail which follows the creek shoreline. Beware that this trail can easily become muddy and slippery, and parents should keep a watchful eye on any small children while hiking. Also this area is one of Ajax's trial "leash free areas" if you have a four legged geocacher in your team.

This cache is a medium sized tupperware container, and contained when placed:

Logbook and pen
First aid kit (PLEASE NOTE! This is not intended to be a trade item! This first aid kit has been placed to assist in any bumps bruises or scratches that may occur when finding the cache - PLEASE do not remove the kit from this cache!)

Neon glow sticks
Sewing kit
Handy fan
Grab bag of small toys
Calculator
Leather wallet
Eyeglass repair kit
Brass match holder
Flexi-light
Wandering Rodent travel bug!

The parking lot can be found at N 43 50.068 W079 02.104

Additional Hints (Encrypt)

Follow the trail along the creek shore. There are a couple of places where some makeshift steps and climbing are involved. In order to find this cache you will have to think outside of the box. (about 5 paces outside of the box)
