onecrazycanadian: Hi,
I've had to temporarily archive your cache submission. It has been at least two weeks since I contacted you, and the cache was blocking others in the queue. When you get a chance, please attend to the issue raised in my last log on the cache page, contact me from the link there. Be sure to give me the cache URL or GCxxxx number when you reply so I will be able to find it again.

Thanks for your understanding,

Geocache Description:

Well camouflaged ammo box located just off the Trans Canada trail and close to the start of the Whiteshell X-C Ski Club Orange and Red trails. The cache will be buried under snow in the winter and probably difficult to dig out if you find it – but it’ll take a shovel hit.


Original cache contents:

  • FTF Certificate
  • Logbook and pencil
  • Screwdriver set
  • CD
  • Silly putty
  • Corona bottle opener
  • Happy face hat
  • Gift cards
  • Glowing mouth
  • Poker chips
  • Fly catcher

Near the cache is a leaky dam on the Pinawa channel used for fish research by University of New Brunswick master's students for the Canadian Rivers Institute. It was originally setup to test the swimming ability of Manitoba fishes, but has since been converted to examine the effects of suspended solids on smaller fish and invertebrates. Research is also being conducted into a new fish ladder design for non-salmonids and aquaculture practices for restocking. The big pipes are actually siphons feeding the experiments and do not suck up fish!

There's plenty of trails going up to the suspension bridge and around Pinawa (as well as a couple of other nearby caches) if you want to make an afternoon of it! Just make sure you have your provincial park pass.

The Burger Boat in Pinawa (located at N50 08.800 W95 52.465) serves great ice cream cones and fruit smoothies as well as burgers! If you’ve worked up a hunger after your caching expedition, Jennifer’s in Seven Sisters Falls is a nice place to eat. Jennifer’s is at N50 06.320 W96 01.122.
