Geocache Description:

This is the 9th in a series of caches located at exits along the 103 highway between Halifax and Bridgewater, inspired by Canada's first geocache at Exit 7.

This cache is a Geo-Post Office, which means it isn't a normal trading cache. What is a Geo-Post Office you ask? See this page or read on!

Geo-Post Office caches are placed to hold postcards with each postcard having a short message and a forwarding address on it. The address should have the person's name that you are trying to send the postcard to, their home area and destination cache. The idea is to move postcards from post office or cache enroute until they reach their destination. When you move a postcard or message from one place to another let the person that it is being sent to know in case they are close enough to pick it up. Make sure that you are moving it closer to its destination.

Who should I send these postcards or messages to?
Any geocaching team that you want.

What's the purpose?
It's another neat thing that we can do with geocaching! It's also nice to keep in touch with other geocachers.

What do I need to put on my postcard?
Put the name of the cacher, the destination and a cache where it can be picked up at. A message to the recipient is appreciated too.

How far can I send a postcard?
As far as you want providing that there are post offices and caches along the way.

How do I send one?
Go to any geo-post office and place your message or postcard in there. Read the out going mail to see if you can help a card or message along its way.

How do I start my own geo-post office?
All you need is a cache container, logbook, stash note, zip-lock bags and some postcards to start. Put the postcards or messages in a zip-lock bag and your logbook in another. Make sure that your location is listed as a geo-post office so that other cachers know.

You can find a list of other Geo-Post Offices here.
