Our GeoCoin Started Its Journey!!

The 64th Guides went geocaching!

We placed a geocoin in a cache during our bike hike.

We had Frank talk to us for a bit about geocaching and he helped us to find the cache where we were going to place our geocoin.

Here we are holding the geocoin. The geocoin has been minted by Girl Guides of Canada to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Girl Guides in Canada. Coins were made available to Rangers and Pathfinders and Kabrena, our Junior Leader (Ranger), and Katie, a visiting Pathfinder, helped us to start our geocoin on it's journey.

You can track our geocoin's progress here:
64th Guides, Girl Guides of Canada 100 Years Geocoin

Here we found the cache!

We dropped off our geocoin here at the cache, to start it on it's journey.

Next, Frank retrieved the geocoin from the cache and he is going to place it in another cache for someone else to find. Remember to track its journey here:

Bike Hike - What an Adventure!

Our Bike Hike - What an Adventure!
This bike hike was one of the most adventuresome ever!
First a bike chain came off and we got that fixed.
Then a bike needed air in the tires so we got that done.
We had several girls fall off their bikes at different points in the trip ~ a few small scrapes but mostly no injuries at all thankfully!
We stopped in Gibbons Park to learn a bit about geocaching and to drop off our
100th Anniversary Girl Guide geocoin!!
(More on that in this blog post.)
All in all, we had beautiful weather, great girls and a wonderful ride!
Thanks everyone!
