I have in my posession a square Lock n lock with green tape, this was handed to be today by a Mission Parks employee, who found it when clearing a tree. The cache was located in between the grotto and my "cojoined twins"

I e-mailed the cache owner for the retired "spring wedding", but they said it was an ammo box!!

So now I have a box that has no owner, it is lost, wandering, and needs a home.

These are the details in the log (copy of e-mail I sent mud puppy)

IF ANYONE KNOWS WHO'S CACHE THIS IS, LET ME KNOW. Guy9696 @ gmail.com

Lunchbucket2000, you signed this log thinking it was "spring wedding" but it wasn't, so where was this cache found by you? who are "the handes"??

I met with two of the groundskeepers, and one of them handed me a geocache container, and at first I thought it was "spring wedding", but this is the mystery,

It is a tall sandwich size lock n lock, covered with green tape. On the top just says "geocache@geocaching.com", no geocache name.



The logbook is a dolphin logbook, inside cover of logbook says "welcome to the 4family geocache aug 22/09"

now it gets weird, log entries
"we were here! smokey and the bandits aug23/09" (from Sask. never cached in BC)
"fortune5 aug 23/09' (only one cache logged as found, "whistle stop" in bc, 15 Oct/06)
"we "3" love" (no date)
"tatersalad + kids aug23/09" (one tatersalad is from N. Carolina, the other hasn't cached since 2007 and is from pensylvania)
"the glitter gang aug 23/09" (are local but did not log spring wedding, though did a couple of others close by around that date)
"nmellallen aug 23/09" (username does not exist)

"lunchbucket2000 sept23/09" (THIS ONE IS LOGGED AS THE LAST TO FIND SPRING WEDDING)

Now after it went missing,
"Bobo fett (hard to read this) dec27, 2009 L.O.L" (does not exist as a member)
"The Handes Jan 12/2010" (username does not exist)

So is it your container?, see why I am confused, this whole thing is weird.

Parks guy said he found it when he cut down a tree which was located SE of the church, near the small group of trees beside the road that leads up to the church???

it was sitting in the open for the last 2 weeks, just sitting on the grass, he placed it there, didn't know what it was.

Enlighten me on the mystery.

Guy

I read the lid of the container wrong, says 'geocache@ geocaching.ca but geocaching.ca website is "coming soon", could this be a cache placed somewhere but not a geocaching.com cache, may be another lesser known organisation???

Although it said geocache, you never know, it could be a letterbox.

If it was a letterbox??, the owner if found will have to find a new hide, as the tree that it was in is gone, and no place nearby to fit container, does a letterbox have trade items/toys??

Yes letterboxes do have toys in them. Where exactly was it found?

From Spring Wedding archives:

September 3, 2009 by The Wet Coast Explorers (3797 found)
18:15 Took the long way to the cache. Realized my mistake when I got there. D'oh. Was kind of puzzled by the his and hers cache ammo cans though. Both were labeled with the cache name and both contained log books. Hummm? Signed both so that nobody feels left out. TFTC

August 15, 2009 by Kambo117b (425 found)
(#339) Went to find this one specifically because there was a coin logged in inventory. Coin was gone. Hope it just hasn't been logged out yet.
Anyway, I find the cache no where near the hint or GZ. Grumble at the previous cacher who put it back wrong and logged the wrong date (Aug 2008). Signed the log then when I go to put it back at the proper place (GZ), there was another cache there. I had actually stumbled across a cache that had been muggled last year and the owners had replaced it. My ire at the fictitious previous cacher was gone. Signed my name to the actual cache too (coin wasn't in that one either). Left the older cache at proper coords with the newer one for the owner to come reclaim.
Too bad I can't get 2 finds for this one.

- Perhaps you found the very first one that was placed by the other cacher then replaced. Who knows but I say recycle it to become a new cache again.

Hey Guy,

Can you take a picture of the container and logbook with pages, and post them, maybe someone will recognize something.

thanks,
Jeff

Could it be one of those travelling caches? We had one come through Prince George, I tried for it, but someone else got it before I did. It's a couple years back so I can't remember how exactly it worked, but something along the lines of you pick up the cache, rehide it somewhere else and in the log entry you add the new coordinates. (We were going to pick it up in Prince George and take it back to Terrace with us.) New ones aren't allowed anymore, I'm not sure how you'd search for one, but it's a possibility.

This is the cache you are talking about GC740A Prince George Transit

Well, you got me curious as the Prince George Transit cache didn't look familar. Anyway, GC2179 Bernie's Travelling Geocache is the one that I had hoped for but missed. It's a cache that's travelled across Canada.
