We have a series we've been building that has caches at or near odd, unusual or downright strange road features (abandoned road sections, four lane roads that run right up to a fence, road sections that run right up to embankments for railway overpasses, turnabouts that appear to have no purpose, spots where the road changed, but our mapping software didnt). We've had some help - Adroit Seeker for example created one to add to our series also.

We need some more help, now with 8 caches placed in Surrey/Delta we've hit a point where we don't have too many more ideas of places to put more.

We're wondering if anyone else either has some ideas for places we can check out - or, wants to contribute new caches to the series themselves (the only thing we ask is that we get told about the cache in advance so that we can keep the numbering straight).

Anyone have any bright, or not so bright ideas?

Thanks!

Gaglardi Way in North Burnaby runs into a bush. There was the mother of all turnpikes there at one time but a section has been abandoned. I've seen some work on the old tunpike lately so I'm not sure if the city is planning to reopen it.

Scruff, if you're talking about the section in the Highway InterChange, that's all under "Gateway" construction. The "into the bush" section is for future works for the Stormont Connector (which may never happen), linking Gaglardi Way to Newcombe/16th area.

I'll have to put my thinking cap on for this odd road thing, because we've certainly come across a few over our years here...

Yep, that's it. I seem to recall some opposition to the project in the 70s since it would have turned Newcombe's residential area into a major thoroughfare. Cariboo Road has since been upgraded.
