Forest destruction west of GFR
« on: January 07, 2017, 16:52:22 »
If your to-do-list includes Sam's Cache (GC1RF3W) and others in the area, you may want to move it up the list.

The destruction of the forest WEST of the Goulbourn Forced Road (GFR) is well underway. I set out to rescue my geocaches here. The first cache (GC2QC2R) on my list was already gone, in a clear cut wasteland where last week there was a forest. The second cache (GC32F1Y) is within 20 m of the clear cutting machines but frozen under deep snow. My third cache (GC2P27G) is just beyond the well flagged "development zone" and it just might survive.

Access from the GFR is no longer an option, especially if you see or hear machinery. As of today, I noted no signage when coming from what was once known as the First Line.

Yikes!  Thanks for the head's up.  My old GAG13 puzzle, "Do you have time?" GC1MJ7V is likely not long for this world.  For the best anyway, as I planned on killing it off.  Too far west to maintain.

I'm heading out Saturday to find that one, since it's been in my "solved but not found pile for ages".

Would you like me to retrieve it?
