The Lighthouse is a great cache, the trick is retrieving it without being spotted.

Now, for a spot to hide a cache look at the City of Kingston's website for their Parks Map. I have used this to find spots to hide a cache.

I track all caches I have hit on Microsoft Streets & Trips and can send a picture of Kingston showing where caches are, using this I see some MAJOR holes with city parks all over that have no caches in them.

On another note, what about hiding a cache in Cataraqui Cemetery, lots of history in there and I am sure a cache could be hidden in a quiet area. There is a Prime Minister buried there and a few other notables.

Subject: [kag] lighthouse cache, and others


I'm hoping for some feedback on the caches I hid.

Most recently, I hid Lighthouse, down at confederation park.

My goal was to hide a cache right downtown, where the object was less about a hard find, and more about being sneaky and undetected. I wanted a big cache too, cause my kids don't like the little ones...they want loot! When I saw the blue structure, I knew it would work. But it is so similar to Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, that I knew it would also be too easy.

I tried to get it posted on a sat morning, for a better FTF race, but submitted it too early. It was reviewed and posted in just 2 hours, whereas my prev caches have taken a few days.

Any suggestions for more downtown, urban caches?

I think the big sandy caches are too easy to find. But I didn't want to be responsible for any environmental disturbances, so had limited prospects. The one at the beach is too close to the trailhead. When I was searching for a spot, a snowstorm broke out and I had limited options. I'll be back there to look for a better spot, further from the trailhead.

I would appreciate feedback on my other caches too...don't worry, I have a thick skin, so give it to me straight.

BTW, there's an army surplus store in London Ont that sells ammo boxes for $6.50cdn.
