The Turtles, Turtle Cache
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
The above co-ordinates are for a junction on the trail that leads to all FIVE caches. The parking location is the same for all FIVE caches, but their hiding spots are some distance apart. The parking location is N43 19.571 W80 23.211.
The first cache you must find is “New name; New Location”, use Waypoint GC6EF2. The second is “T.B.W.C. of 2003”, use Waypoint GCC53B. The third cache you must find is: “Lizards from the Planet Loony”, use Waypoint GCCB38. The fourth cache you must find is: “Bunny Hop”, use Waypoint GCD964.
This is the FIFTH cache hidden in this forest. Under the lids of the other four cache containers are two numbers that will help in the finding of this cache, “The Turtles, Turtle Cache”. ” Give yourself about 1 ½ to 2 hours to find all five cache sites and about a 3.5 km. walk. There are lots of hills, most trails are well marked and wide, but side trails are not marked. It is a great place to cross country ski or snowshoe in the winter. Hike all year round.
Urgent message: While out doing wilderness maneuvers the Travel Bugs from “T.B.W.C. of 2003” came across a nest of 10 small Turtles. They are Turtles from all around the world, some from the land, some from fresh water, some from the sea and others that just like to hang around with bears. So if you see a Turtle on its back make sure it doesn’t have a string tied to it and a bear at the other end of the string. Just kidding, Turtles don’t know how to tie knots.
Here are some web sites to get information on Turtles. http://www.turtles.org/ http://www.turtles.org/marines.htm http://emys.geo.orst.edu/ http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Prairie/1454/ http://museum.gov.ns.ca/mnh/nature/turtles/
