150 caches and counting

April 14, 2006 @ 23:33 By: gordon Category: Geocaching

Kathy and I drove up to Foymount in an attempt to be the first to find a new geocache called Foymount (GCVBER). Foymount is about 2 hours up the Ottawa Valley and is the highest populated point in Ontario. During the cold war, from 1952 to October 1974, it was home toPinetree Line site C-3. The Pinetree Line was a network of radar stations set up tocounter the Soviet air threat against North America. For several years there were radomes (large golf ball things) watching the skies for invaders.

Anyways, the cache was posted on the 12th and by noon today it still hadn’t been logged. Encouraged, we headed up to Foymount and found the cache quite quickly in amongst the foundations from the radomes and the various antennae at the very top of the mountain. When we opened the container we discovered that someone else had driven even farther than we had and beaten us to the FTF by a couple of hours. Oh well. We had a great day and it was nice to be out in the country.
