Pharmadude: I just received this anonymous note:

"Whoever you are you have been trespassing on my private property since you placed your GEOCACHE VTMP NO.138 McNally Creek since 2005 you have helped people and yourself destroy a fence and beat down the natural growth. I will be in touch with Surrey over this trespass. And possibly the police."

At the time of placing, I was assured by Surrey that this was a greenbelt public area. However, I have decided to give the writer the benefit of the doubt and archive the listing

Geocache Description:

Another in the series of caches remembering Vancouver Transit. Vancouver Transit (GC19D6)was a “travelling cache” and one of the most popular caches ever to hit the lower mainland. Once found, the cache finder would pick up the entire cache and re-hide it in a new location, somewhere in the Greater Vancouver area.


From September 2001 to August 2004, Vancouver Transit made over 150 different stops, each one lasting anywhere from a few hours to a few days before moving on to the next.

Vancouver Transit is no more, but I thought it would be great to memorialize the stops it made along the way by placing permanent caches where the TRANSIenT ones once lay. Everyone is invited to join the Vancouver Transit Memorial Project (VTMP).

Here is how to participate.

  1. I have a master list of the original VT cache locations.
  2. If you know which location you wish to commemorate, email me pharmadude@shaw.ca and I will check your location off the list
  3. If you would like to be assigned a location, email me with the general area you have in mind, and I will send you the coordinates of nearby VT cache locations.
  4. Caches may be of any size or type, and should be placed as close to the original location as possible. Since the exact original location may only be known to as few as two people (the original hider and finder), good judgement will come into play.
  5. If you decide to make it a multi-cache, remember that the final coordinates are already common knowledge.
  6. Your cache title will begin with the heading "VTMP XXX:" where XXX is a number I will assign based on the original VT cache. Following this header, you can add a further title of your choosing.
  7. Your cache description should also include the date the original VT cache was hidden

I originally placed Vancouver Transit here on May 2,2004. There is a trail, but it may be hard to find, and depending on the season, some bushwacking may be required. However it's a beautiful area, and I'm hoping Surrey will see fit to convert it to a park. The trailhead, such as it is, is at N 49°00.996' W122°46.330'. Park 80m east on the north side of the street.
