We are very pleased to announce that we have purchased cachingtreasures.com. This follows our purchase last year of www.niagaracachingsupply.ca. We know all too well how hard it is to keep a geocaching store viable. Thank you to everyone that supports us, we appreciate your business.

Accept Credit CardsOne of our favourite aspects of running Cache At Night is attending events.  It gives us an opportunity to meet many of our existing customers and to make some new friends.   Not everyone enjoys the online buying experience and events are a great opportunity for those folks to make a purchase in person.  In the past there was a trade off in that we couldn’t accept credit cards at events.   That will not be the case this year.

We have just signed up for a new service that will allow us to process credit card transactions anywhere that we have cell coverage.   If you see us at upcoming event you’ll be able to make purchases using your credit card.   We hope this will make it easier for you to get the supplies you need.

It is always encouraging when you received positive customer feedback.  We received this email last week and with permission we’d like to share it now.

Hi Ron & John,

I’m not a terribly active cacher so I don’t often need much stuff, but your site is definitely on my Go-To list. Just this morning I forwarded the link to a new cacher,  so I was browsing around again… such a thoughtful inventory of useful products, with good prices and fast shipping too. Love the new mini-log books! Great job… thanks for being there for my (infrequent) orders. I’ve just started working on a complex 8-stage 5/5 Multi and already making my wish list…

best regards,

Annie L

We are happy you like our selection Annie.   Thank you for your encouragement!

Winter Solstice Group Caching Event

Thanks to northern penguin for the photo

The following is a log entry posted by Draelynx from our Winter Solstice – Battery Challenge event cache.  We had a lot of fun in the warmer, wetter and by wetter I mean muddier, weather.

/ Twas a warm and muddy night
/ And all through Hyde Tract
/ Not a creature was stirring
/ But then, wait …. what’s that?

/ There arose on the trails
/ Such loud cheerful chatter
/ From an assembly of cachers
/ Who craved a night gather

/ They splashed in deep puddles
/ Then tripped over logs
/ Accompanied by geokids
/ And damp geodogs

/ By Magellan and Garmin and UV we were bidden
/ To seek in the forest that which is hidden
/ In tree stump! In leaf pile! In spruce tree and ruin!
/ There isn’t much else we would rather be do-in’

/ After spotting each one
/ No “Found It!” was piped
/ For group caching etiquette
/ Simply shut off your light

/ Through wet falling snow
/ Cachers drove out of sight
/ Happy Solstice to all
/ And to all a good night!

Thank you Draelynx for letting us repost your log.

Here is a short video from the evening. I can never seem to fully capture what it’s like to see headlamps bobbing around the woods at night.

We are always looking to add products to the store that serve geocachers needs.  Feel free to let us know about your favourite tool or supply and we’ll see about stocking it in the store.

A couple of weeks ago Ron and I were preparing some paperwork we realized that as of November 9th our store had been in operation for a year.   A lot has happened in that year!

When we opened Cache At Night we new we needed to be different.  We knew that you have many choices on where you can buy your geocaching supplies.  We started off offering a limited number of products that focused on night caching.   We continue to bring innovative products for night caching such as our series of UV flashlights and supplies.  We also bring the best quality items we can find such as theRogue 2 AA powered flashlight.  We are constantly scouring to find new and helpful items.  We aren’t just shopkeepers we are cachers first.  We field test what we sell.  We know what works and how to get the best from it.

In the last six months we’ve expanded our inventory to include many more everyday geocaching supplies.  Whether it’s weather proof pens or log books we have it in the store.

In the last year we’ve made lots of new friends via your connection with the store.  You might just be a fan on Facebook or a client.   We’d like to thank all of you for making our first year a success.  With your support we’ll be here for many more.
