I took it out for a lunch time cache run and it was AWESOME! It was reading 7-10 meter accuracy and zeroing at GZ. I did 2 cachers that lunch hour and a handful more with it since. I even placed my first hide using it to get the coordinates.
No Dam Good
Today I went back to take some pictures of the second cache I did that day. Because in all the excitement I forgot my camera at home. Now my iPhone was in the car but it was COLD out! I was lucky I even grabbed that 2nd cache. I was on my way back to work when I pulled over because I remembered looking at the Geocaching.com map and that there was a cache near by. I pulled out my iPod Touch app and sure enough 150 m away!
Despite being a stones throw away from a major highway the location is rather picturesque. It was a nice easy stroll to GZ. Once there I just had to duck a few branches. When I grabbed the container I was surprised to pull out an ammo can! I was surprised because ammo cans aren't very common in Canada (a small military means minimal amounts of army surplus.. besides Tupperware is cheaper!) and because the description had mentioned a first aid kit container.
The description also advised cachers to take the extra few steps and check out the now defunct dam. I'm glad I did. There were concrete walls diverting the water where the dam had been dismantled. A few parts still remain. When I went back today to take the pictures I forgot to take last time I discovered that someone has been working hard at restoring the dam. Or rather, something. As you can teel from these pictures it appears that there is a beaver in the area who is busy building a dam on it's own. So what used to be 'No Dam Good' is now 'New Dam Good'.
