Centennial Totem Pole
British Columbia totem pole in Windsor Great Park at Virginia Water
British Columbia totem pole in Windsor Great Park at Virginia Water

This totem pole is one of two poles carved by Chief Mungo Martin of the Kwakiutl Indian Nation of British Columbia and this one was given to Queen Elizabeth II to mark the centennial of the founding of British Columbia in 1858. The other one, a precise replica of this totem pole, is sited in Vancouver, British Columbia, where there is also a cache.

The coordinates given are those of the explanatory sign at the totem pole. You will surely wish to visit the pole, however it is not necessary in order to find the cache, which is 312 feet on a bearing of 17 degrees East of North from the pole.

The cache is a dark green ammo box.

We did not realise it at the time but this was our first navicache! Lovely walk around the lakes on a warm and dry September day. Had my wife and her twin sister with me and great fun was had by all.

Had a nice walk around the lake with Team Sapper who dropped a travel bug into this one that I reccomended. Prior to that we'd also visited several navicache, including at Runnymede. A note for Steve: I was wrong when I said the lake had been made just over 100 years ago - it was made in about 1750 (took about 4 years, having been started in 1748). It was interesting to see the preperations for filming, including that large ship and what looked like a large granite building - I guess it was only cardboard :-) Will check it out on my next visit.

June and I thought it was about time we looked for one of Sandvika's geocaches on navicache - and we were glad we did. We started by visiting our Copper Horse cache to drop in the dried out old logbook - dating back to 2001 ! We then grabbed a snack at the Saville Gardens centre, and took a walk to the totem pole - well known to us locals. We thought we'd try WITHOUT using a GPS - and we did. I simply had a google earth printout showing the magic distance from the pole. We walked straight to the spot - and had no difficulty finding the ammo box. Hopefully I can upload the piccy taken by June. What a real pleasure to find a PROPER geocache and a log book you can write something in. This is where I made a silly mistake - writing that I'd left the printout and then leaving the google earth piccy in my pocket ! Then June showed my we were only 0.1 mile from another cache - she had put some software into her nokia phone earlier in the week - without telling me of course. We soon found the little microcache a few hundred yards walk away. What a pitty there was only room to put a date and names. We saw on both caches that Cakeman had visited before us on the same day. We found Centinial Totem Pole at 1530 and the microcache about 15 minutes later. Thanks for making our day the more enjoyable :-)

Didn't know these caches were also here as well as the other site. Anyway found on 24/10/08, and logged as follows

"Finally found on my third attempt !
I was beginning to think I'd have to borrow Tomas's Granny in order to find this after searching area for long periods on two occasions.
Parked up bike in a differnt position to previous two visits, turned around and saw cache straight away.
Suspect that I had parked up bike on top of cache position on previous visits, hence the DNF before. Doh!!
Also the projected waypoint for the cache was nearer 300ft than 325ft according to my GPS, if this helps anyone in the future.
Anyway, nice to see an ammo box for a change, especially in such a busy place

Serendipity!

After a day walking round Richmond Park I was logging some other NaviCaches this evening, when I came across this one. I was just reading gcoupland's log when my computer went "ping" to announce the arrival of some emails. And what do you know! Notifications from GS that gcoupland had just found a couple of my caches only a few miles along the A30 at Runnymede :-)

Now, I've already done this cache in it's cross-listed guise. After that little coincidence I've got to log it, so I'm logging this on 11th Dec. 2008, but with a date of Jan. 2008.

My GS log reminds me that I found it to be a pretty tricky one, with the projection pointing me into the middle of the lake, but at least I got it on my first visit :-)

I took nothing and left a torch - I wonder if it's still there :-)

I gave Steamhammer a call to see if fancied coming caching on a possible FTF.

We made sure our torches working, as its very dark in the park & we had mist sunset over the Totem Pole. When we arrived we set our GPS’s to aim in on the cache.

The search was not so easy in the dark  & it started to rain but I came across it on the second search of the area Steamhammer Picked up 2 Geocoins, we drop anything in nothing as I was not sure whether we would find it but this was a good time to go caching as there were no muggles around.

Signed the log 18:15HRS 28/11/2007
Many thanks for the cache
