northernpenguin: I'm going to open up the location for another cacher. This cache has had a good life but really I'm not giving it the maintenance it needs. I'm pulling my cache hides in closer to home so I can give them their TLC.

Geocache Description:

A quick cache at a carpool lot.

Welcome to the starting point of the third annual Great Lord Simcoe 24 Hour Geocaching Marathon.
This carpool lot is the starting point for over a dozen geocachers that went geocaching in the Kitchener-Waterloo area for 24 hours straight, on August 12 2006.

The cachers were being treated to the following this year:
  • A full moon, which makes for easier night caching - One meteor shower, so you can walk off the trail because you were looking at the sky, not your GPS
  • Three vehicles to choose from! The "Red Jeep", the "Short Bus" and the "Mobile Photo Hut" -- all co-ordinated on Amateur Radio using simplex.
  • Numerous antics during the silly hour at 3AM.

    This year, the GLS Marathon included these noble cachers:
  • Keith Watson
  • Jimminie Crickets
  • Northernpenguin
  • chris-mouse
  • HomerJFong
  • Fizbot
  • carrgirl
  • geek-e
  • Dr. Clean
  • MsKardiac
  • CCCooperAgency
  • Dreadnaught
  • Jeff-Trex

    ( more updates to come )
    The cache container is classified as a micro, as it is too small to accomodate a pencil (bring your own!) or trade items. Geocoins will probably fit though, and it is on the larger end of the micro size.
