The title Holiday Caching, does not mean being on holidays and grabbing some caches(although I do that also), what I am talking about is a challenge cache that was published last year in 2011 on Rememberance day, 11th month, 11th day, 11th year. It is called VLH 11-11-11 Challenge
The way to be able to claim this cache and log it, is to find a cache on every BC stat holiday. There is 11 of them in total(Until 2013 when we will have one added)
For the last couple of months, I have been up in the Yukon working. This could make getting caches on a holiday a wee bit tricky. You see the challenge says they have to be BC caches. While I am only about 20km from the border of BC, some of the nearest caches are not so near. There is a couple just across the border(one east of here, and the other west of here) I got one of them when I first came up this way as it was a FTF. The other one I was able to use on Canada day. The next holiday rolled around on BC day. This was a bit tougher as the nearest BC cache now was 130km away from me.
Well after working a full 10hr day, I headed down the hwy.
About 30 minutes down the road, I spotted a family of black bears
along the side of the road. (Mom and 2 cubs)
They allowed me to get some great photos.
On the way back to I spotted a grizzly bear along the side of the road. He actually let me get about 5 feet away and was able to snap off a few quick pics before heading back down the road.
