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.

Vancouver Transit Memorial Project


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 Pharmadude 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. Pharmadude has a master list of the original VT cache locations. If you know which location you wish to commemorate, email pharmadude@shaw.ca and he will check your location off the list If you would like to be assigned a location, email Pharmadude with the general area you have in mind, and he will send you the coordinates of nearby VT cache locations. 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. If you decide to make it a multi-cache, remember that the final coordinates are already common knowledge.

Your cache title will begin with the heading "VTMP XXX:" where XXX is a number Pharmadude will assign based on the original VT cache. Following this header, you can add a further title of your choosing. Your cache description should also include the date the original VT cache was hidden.

This cache was originally hidden April 11 2003 by Deuy. The cache is hidden at the mouth of Kanaka Creek, it is just one of several hidden along this linear park that protects the creek and it's immediate watershed from the mouth of the creek back into the wooded hills of rural Maple Ridge.

The cache is a small lock and lock painted black. The cache is easily reached without crashing through the bush. The original cache was located on a wooden pier that does not allow for many good hiding places, plus the cache site would have been too exposed to muggles. The new cache is located slightly to the east.
