Time for a foxhunt

by Gregory Pleau In reply to Gregory Pleau's Blog Site

Today the Peel Amateur Radio Club participated in “Emergency Preparedness Week” in Brampton. Members of our ARES group setup a table at a shopping centre in Brampton to help educate the public about our role in an emergency situation.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get out to the mall, but I did manage to have a [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.gregorypleau.com/?p=58">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Detonate in place: It?s not just for Geocaches anymore!

by Gregory Pleau In reply to Gregory Pleau's Blog Site

With all the recent press of people finding geocaches and having them blown up by the local authorities, it would appear Hollywood was feeling left out. Now they’re blowing up newspaper boxes.
It seems, someone thought it would be great if a bunch of these newspaper boxes would start playing the Mission Impossible III movie theme [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.gregorypleau.com/?p=60">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

A Twist on the Bluecoats

by Gregory Pleau In reply to Gregory Pleau's Blog Site

I have to blog about this one.
It seems a group of people took it upon themselves to pull a prank against Best Buy. They got about 80 people together, put on clothes that looked very similar to the standard uniform and walked in one at a time. Inside, they stood around at places like the [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.gregorypleau.com/?p=65">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Mexico: Day 1

by Gregory Pleau In reply to Gregory Pleau's Blog Site

Landed in Cancun at 11:30 local time, then enjoyed a long bus ride to the resort. We stopped en route at the Borcelo - that’s where the Canadians were murdered. Too bad, because that really looks like a nice resort too. This is the first time I’ve ever gone “all inclusive” so it’s going to [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.gregorypleau.com/?p=66">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Mexico: Day 2

by Gregory Pleau In reply to Gregory Pleau's Blog Site

Rained today, rare for this place. We had a pretty good thunderstorm **** in off the Carribean. The iguanas and lizards have decided to show up, and it seems there is one hiding under every piece of cement with a hollow under it.
Today also meant heavy use of the Internet cafe here, grabbing some PDA [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.gregorypleau.com/?p=67">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

There’s one of these guys under every rock, sidewalk and ceiling in the resort. Good thing too, because these guys eat mosquitos. The picture also shows some of the colourful buildings that I’m enjoying photographing while I’m here.<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.gregorypleau.com/?p=68">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Goodbye Grandma

by Gregory Pleau In reply to Gregory Pleau's Blog Site

Today started with sad news, my grandmother passed away back home.
She has always been an inspiration to me, and I’ll miss her. I last saw her just a couple weeks ago and I’ll never forget how she smiled then.
I used to sneak into her freezer when I was younger and steal her cookies. [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.gregorypleau.com/?p=69">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

New Geocaching Milestone today!

by Gregory Pleau In reply to Gregory Pleau's Blog Site

… at N20 12.890, GC29B5 - The Mayan Ruins of Tulum now represents the farthest south I have travelled to find a geocache. This cache was a virtual one however, so the southernmost physical cache find is still in Colorado - something I hope to rectify on Friday<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.gregorypleau.com/?p=70">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Mexico - Day 4

by Gregory Pleau In reply to Gregory Pleau's Blog Site

Today was a fun day. Made it to the ruins at Tulum, which is always an interesting site. The iguanas were everywhere here, and they are well fed by the size of them. I hope the kittens we saw napping at the gate know to stay away from them. We also scored a geocache find [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.gregorypleau.com/?p=71">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Geocaching Wrap-Up: Mexico

Obligatory Resort Shot
Originally uploaded by gregorypleau.

As you’re probably aware now, I’ve been out of the country for the last week. My sister was married in Mexico, and that gave me an excuse to add some more exotic locations to my geocaching log.
For the couple weeks coming up on the trip to Mexico, I started grabbing [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.gregorypleau.com/?p=72">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>
