    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.

    My GodDaughter got her MS from Rutgers in May and her finace got his Doctorate in Pharmacy. Great young folks and I just can't let them down.

    Nice to hear there are young achievers out there today. Many more I am sure - just may not know about them.

    Default 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?

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    We liked the following campgrounds:

    1. New River Beach Provincial Campground, New Brunswick - about 5 hours from central Maine. This would be good at the end of the day is you're caching along the Maine coast enroute.

    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.

    Thumbs up Camping

    I have already contacted a few campgrounds in the area, and they will take reservations for next year.
    Happy Trails!

    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.

    Default 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.
    Happy Trails!
