Making geocaching history in Canada

by GPS4US 2013-06-28 17:06
It’s not every day the world’s oldest undiscovered geocache gets found.

So perhaps we should all pause, rise to our feet and give geocacher Stormgren-X a round of applause for his trek through Ontario, Canada this month to find 4.5lb Walleye, a geocache hidden on June 23, 2001.

Stormgren-X spent half a year planning the trip.

“I planned the trip over a six-month period from researching the route, history, other accounts of this amazing canoe route, food, gear and logistics of getting to the launch site and getting out and back home,” he told said. “I was prepared to do the trip solo, but managed to convince my life-long friend to join me on this amazing journey along this historical canoe route.

Harsh Canadian temperatures made the first two days of the canoe trip hell. But once it warmed up, Stormgren-X and his companion enjoyed a smooth trip. On Day 8, after canoeing 435 kilometers the pair finally found the geocache.

You can find the full story at or hear a Podcacher podcast interverview with Stormgren-X.
