Hi,

My boss found a mid-size lock-n-lock in the river in Richmond. He dried it out and brought it to me. Fortunately, the GC number was still legible and I've emailed the cache owner but I'm not sure that emails go through. On top of that, the cache had been archived, presumably before the thing wound up in the water.

Is there somewhere that I can drop this thing off?

What is the cache number or name?

I think any CO would be thrilled to retrieve a cache that was lost to the mighty Fraser! I have one that is swimming with the fishies but unfortunately this is not the one. The find gives us all hope . . .

Thanks

If the cache is archived why not use it to create a new cache and make it a tribute cache to either the original owner or the original cache.

The cache has been returned to its rightful home. It is now safe and sound back on the Sunshine Coast. Very Happy

Which cache was it? It had quite a journey! One of my caches was found on Bowen Island and I thought that was quite amazing. The person who found it went to a lot of effort to let me know.
