Oh my, a PhD - very exciting and there is life beside caching. But it does make it hard. Congrats to you folks and especially your son.

Nice to hear there are young achievers out there today. Many more I am sure - just may not know about them.
Driving to the Mega
I plan on taking a week's vacation and slowly making my way over and back. (caching along the way, of course) Any other suggestions for campgrounds?
We liked the following campgrounds:

2. Further along, a good place to stop if you're going slowly along the coast, is the Fundy National Park. Fantastic scenery!
3. In Nova Scotia, we liked the KOA camp-ground in Halifax, not too far from the event.
We've stayed at many other places over the years, but these ones stick in out mind.
I will be posting nearby accomodations shortly.
The man who hid the first cache is going to be on site alot of the week end to say hi to people.
We hope to have the will attend app up and running soon.
We chose the date prior to GWS being announced
Thanks for your support
I have already contacted a few campgrounds in the area, and they will take reservations for next year.:rolleyes:
This is exciting! I hope it is something Ben will be up for attending. I want to go to PEI again... maybe we can do that before or after this event.
I was fortunate to go to the event at Graves Island that dedicated a plaque to Canada's first cache. The cache placer was there. It's a Provincial Park. Later, my brother-in-law and myself went to get the cache. It was pretty cool. It would be sad to have to wait in line to find the cache.

Thanks Maritime Mega Organizing Committee
I signed us up for the event. I do plan to be there at this time.
Get signed up
If you are at all planning to attend this mega event, you should go here and sign up. They need to show that there will be enough interest to attain mega status. The sooner they get there then the sooner it can get posted. I am looking forward to my first trip to Nova Scotia next July.
