    There is talk of a new ferry service. And five bids have already been mentioned, including Marine Atlantic, but it wouldn't be in operation until 2011.

    I find it's quicker to drive. You don't have the wait time and the distance from Yarmouth to Halifax is BIG.

    Question Not in Halifax anyway

    Keep in mind the the event is not in Halifax. It's about an hour west in Bridgewater. Yarmouth doesn't look so bad now does it?
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    Thumbs up

    Just some passing thought for you folks as we have bike camped the area several times always enjoying it. The St John to Digby Ferry (IMO) was much nicer then the Cat which we did only once. The reason we saw all kind of stuff which we always find amazing. Even had a chance to see a sunfish once. From the ferry landing it is straight across past KNP to Bridgewater and the coast and comes out a bit to the west of the location you would be headed for. There is a very nice campground where the ferry lands with lots of nice caches in the community along their bike trail. It is a good road from Bangor to St John now that moves right along. Our problem was we had to bike part of it but it had a large breakdown lane. While we are selective doing caches there were many along the way we road by. Lots of great earthcaches arund the park.
    We hate mindless caches placed in the woods without a reason, nothing but the cache in a plastic bag on a tree.

    Only about 4 hours from Bangor to St John. And if you have time, a tour of the Moosehead Brewery in St John is a great opportunity.

    Advance registration for the Maritime Geobash 2010 will close on May 29.
    This is necessary to ensure we have the bags, tshirts and coins ordered and shipped in time for the event.

    Gary Ramey will also need advance notice of how many mouths he is feeding.

    Basic registration will continue until July 3rd if you want a nametag. And of course, you are welcome to register at the event itself and sign the logbook.

    Hope to see you on July 10th!!!

    There are only 5 days left in the advance registration period! That means there are only 5 days left to guarantee that you can get your hands on the cool swag that will be available for this event! And it is the only chance to reserve your Pig Roast dinner!
    But even if you don't want to buy any of the event swag, we still encourage you to register early. The free registation package will include a nametag for you and every member of your caching team, an event brochure, and maybe even some other freebies. But we have to know how many people are coming!
    Let's make this event a mega!!
    Register Now!

    On May 28th the server hosting the Maritime Geobash website suffered a meltdown. While all data is backed up and secure, and has taken longer than expected to replace the server and restore all websites (including ours).
    As a result, the deadline for registration has been moved back to allow people a final chance to register for the event.
    THE LAST DAY FOR REGISTRATION IS NOW JUNE 1ST!!
