Vancouver Transit Memorial Project Number 127.
This is one of only two caches place in Port Coquitlam so enjoy a beautiful little part of our lovely little city.
Another in the series of caches remembering Vancouver Transit. This was the cache's 127th and was placed by RobertM/Gorak/Jomarac5 on Novemver 3, 2003.
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 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).
Email pharmadude@shaw for information on how to participate.
The cache placement is about 250 meters from the original cache site but as another cache is there we searched for another beautiful location (thanks 2poco for the trail hints). This cache is a 30 minute walk along peaceful trails. Great for biking. Don't forget to try Keys to Colony Farms (GCM5H5)
