South Island Limousine is a traveling cache. Once found, the cache finder is requested to pick up the entire cache and re-hide it in a new location, somewhere on Southern Vancouver Island. South Island Limousine is always either PARKED (available to find) or EN ROUTE ( On the road). You are advised to check this page in advance of seeking the cache to confirm it's current status.

South Island Limousine is currently: PARKED(21:01 Jan9)The Limo has traveled: 2822km by road.

Make sure you read the current logs below, as the cache can move a little more quickly then we can update the page. The above status may not be correct. Hiders, please log your re-hide as a note on the cache page, with new difficulty/terrain ratings, hints, and coordinates.

South Island Limousine can be found and logged over and over, as it will always be in a new location. The cache is a camouflage painted 5 litre rectangular Tupperware container.

Once you find the cache, pick it up and take it with you. MAKE SURE YOU TAKE A PIECE OF THE SURVEYOR'S TAPE AND MARK THE LOCATION TO INDICATE THAT THE CACHE HAS BEEN FOUND AND REMOVED. THEN USE THE FELT PEN IN THE CACHE TO MARK THE TAPE WITH YOUR USERNAME, AND THE DATE AND TIME THAT YOU PICKED UP THE CACHE. This will save the next cachers time and frustration looking for a cache that no longer is there. It will also save some ecological damage, from unnecessary searching. When you log your find, please state in the log if you are moving the cache or leaving it in the present location. While you are not required to move the cache, that is a lot of the fun of it.

Please email us immediately upon finding the cache. DO NOT wait until you re-hide it. (click on "Contact a Cacher"at the top of this page)

Log the find on this page. We will change status from PARKED (available to find) to EN ROUTE ( On the road). so that other cachers will know it is on the move and no longer at its posted location.

Re-hide the cache as soon as possible after you find it. Make sure that there is no surveyors tape near the area of the re-hide. Email us the new coordinates, the date re-hidden, and the new difficulty ranking (i.e. 1 / 2). We will update this page with the new location, new hidden date and difficulty rating. The new hidden date will flag the cache as new when searching for local caches.

NOTE: When you move and rehide this cache, you are responsible for maintaining it until it is found by a new cacher.

If this cache gets plundered or stolen, then the last hider MUST REPLACE IT with a new cache, at or near the same location. If you are not prepared to do this, then please do not participate in this cache hunt.

If necessary, add a log entry to this page and include any comments or hints that may be required for the new location (use a log type of "Post a note") We will delete your note after updating the page.

1. We request that South Island Limousine be kept on Southern Vancouver Island. We also request that the locations be limited to the Greater Victoria area, ( Out to French Beach is OK), the east side of the Island as far north as Qualicum Beach and as far west as Cameron Lake on Highway 4, and west on Hwy 18, as far as Honeymoon Bay. It is possible that we will open up more locations later on, if demand warrants.

2. The hiding place must be kept reasonably accessible. This will allow all the local cachers to find and re-hide the cache, over and over again. If you have found South Island Limousine before, you are welcome to search for it again after it is re-hidden by another cacher. Essentially, if it is in a new location, it is a new cache, and it is considered as a new find for you. Please keep the location difficulty and terrain at, or below, 2.5.

3. South Island Limousine must move at least 2000 meters from the previous location each time it moves.

4. In the event that South Island Limousine is not found at it's new location after 30 days, the previous hider must retrieve, and rehide it, in a more accessible location.

5. You MUST BE PREPARED TO REHIDE South Island Limousine within 7 days of finding it. All hiding locations MUST ADHERE to the navicache.com placement requirements.

Another Note: If you're very new to the great game of Geocaching, This might not be the cache for you to try, as the skill of hiding caches comes from the experience of finding them. If this cache has the staying power of Vancouver Island Transit, it should be traveling the Island for quite awhile and we all should be able to have several tries at it.

SUGGESTION: It sometimes is best to check South Island Limousine's nearest caches as you prepare to hunt it, as you may find it has been placed near a cache you have not yet done.

Was going out to Loss creek to retrieve the Limo last Sunday. Guess I was a little late! Tried to catch the Limo on June 22nd & 23rd but no can find! Saw the carpet and various other goodies in the bushes but no Limo. Maybe I'll bring a fresh set of eyes out, it couldn't hurt!

After a "Heart attack hike" I found the Limo, shook out the cobwebs, and took it down the mountain. Will tune it up and get it back on the road ASAP. I am fairly new to this site and according to the Limos' page I am to "Contact a cacher" how do I do this?

Nice hide DJR, in plain view and all. Just about ran it over with the Bronco, the new paint job blended well with the little snow that was left over.
Had to take it for a drive and show off the new paint job.... but what do you know, the budget for the repairs must have been used up on the body because just down the road the tranny fell out. Good thing I had a cell phone with me cause the signal is real strong here. No tow trucks available tonight so I called a Taxi and left the Limo parked at N49 09.513 W123 58.205 It's going to be a double easy....

So we were out for a nice walk and what do we find?...A perfect Limo parked in the woods. Out came the 'slim jim', had the door open in 10 seconds.... another five and the ignition was punched, a quick turn with the screwdriver and off we went.... Oh Oh maybe this is a Bait Car cause we just passed an under cover cop driving a blue van...
I see his brake lights come on and he trys to do a quick 180 but we're too fast and lose him.....
We'll joyride Limo around Nanaimo today and try and dump it later or first thing tommorrow.... Yeeeehaaaa

Took the Limo for a little four by fouring in the snow.
Cool !!!
Found a nice and dry place to park it, (under cover)
at 48° 24.031’ 123° 32.990’
It’s parked under the North end of something.
Something large!
Normally this would be a terrain rating of “1” however with the snow and road conditions better make it a “3”

Found this afternoon by Viguy. Previous driver had obviously imbibed too much at the nearby winery, and turned left when he should have turned right. While ascending the slippery snow covered road, the Limo appears to have slewed off the slippery ice landing under a log by the ditch, whilest narrowly missing a very skinny flagpole!! The driver was nowhere to be seen, but the Limo is perfectly O.K. and has been rescued to be relocated to an area that should remain free of snow.

I never imagined when I started this cache (at the insistence of the Cache Raiders), that it would last so long, and be such a huge hit! I wanted to thank all of you for maintaining the limo, and taking such good care of it. I'm sure that one of these days it will be back in my garage so I can have a look at how well it's fared in it's travels, before sending it out on another road trip. Thanks again to all of you have found it, and good luck to those of you who have yet to find it!

Happy Motoring!

The South Island Limo is once again parked.
Tank was just about empty after checking out Victoria’s Christmas lights, so we headed back up Island for some cheap gas.

Left a little Christmas Bonus in the limo, for the next lucky cacher.

You can pick up the Limo at
N 48° 44.243’ W 123° 40.681’

She’s at the top of the bank behind a clump of trees, with yellow flagging.
Gates close at dusk, but it’s not a bad hike in.

Dear Cacherunner
The Limo was in a couple of accidents. One was totalled, the other was a burnt out vehicle, (they were good hiding spots ). It's not the accidents we are worried about, it's the mechanical condition of your car. ( The brakes, the tranny, the engine,) But don't worry the Guys are all chipping in and are fixing her up ,piece by piece. She is still clean and shinny though.( or at least last time I saw her. Tell you what: I will try and find her next, and give you a full report on her condition.
Thanks again for the oppertunity to play the game.

OK, I updated the mileage........you guys HAVE been busy!! As it stands, by my rough calculations, Limo has travelled over 2300km in the 8 months it's been on the road!! That's about 290km a month! Thanks again, and let's keep 'er rolling! Out of curiosity, I saw a reference to an 'accident' on a couple of occasions......was that just keeping things in the 'car' vein, or did it meet with some misfortune along the way? Just curious......Have fun!

I had intended the Limo to depart on a special mission, but unfortunately it didnt work out as I had hoped. Instead look for the Limo at 10U 408786/5464257... NO WAIT! That's a Ping Pong position... Redgreen is right. Everything is so confusing!!!

Last night I pulled the Limo over to look for a Christmas tree. Found a nice grove of THREE and stashed the Limo in the midst of them. 49d06.576N 123d54.170W

Early this morning (4:00am)I was sitting back and enjoying the ride to work when we screeched to a stop. A MIB (that's Man In Black) pulled open the driver's door and said "I need this vehicle for a matter of national security". With that he tossed the driver out and we took off... "Where are we going?" I asked. "To drop you off at work (CRUD thinks me) then I am heading to New Mexico to look into a matter of "Unknown Origin".

Stopped for a rest at N 49 04.091 and W 123 52.715

Cache is now PARKED at N48d 28.154' W123d 29.007' I had some difficulty getting reproducable readings here, even out in the open. Therefore I have tied a quite obvious piece of lime green flagging to a low plant next to the cache. Perhaps the finder could replace this with a piece of pink flagging once the cache has been located. I would give it a rating of Difficulty 1.5/Terrain 2.25 Happy hunting!

The cache is now EN ROUTE. Snatched this afternoon by a pair of south island cachers (guess who? - Viguy and Rendezvous) to be relocated nearer the Capital. Hope to rehide tomorrow. Almost made off with a bonus.....! Thanks!

I somehow resisted the urge to go get Limo last night as it's accident site was close to home. Checked this morning to see if it may have been removed from the scene and because it had not, I fired up the old tow truck and headed over.
The limo survived the horrific wreck without a scratch but that other car was a complete write off. Thankfully everyone walked away unhurt. 8*)
Limo is presently on the hook and IN TRANSIT. After a quick cut polish and oil change, I'll park it.
Thanks for the hunt DJR, stay tuned....

Was that a rehide?

If it was, please consider the following, from the guidelines:


3. South Island Limousine must move at least 2000 meters from the previous location each time it moves.


If we're only moving it a few metres each time, what fun is that? I would just as soon it stay put until someone can move it farther away. You guys can still log the find, but if you're not planning on moving it far, please leave it for someone else to move. Thanks!!

The cache now contains an X-Treme CD#9 and is rehidden near E 478575 N 5368555. Reception here is a bit spotty, but excellent at a nearby clear area. The coordinates will put you very close to a numbered red and white 'marker'. The sum of the individual digits of its number equals 7. From this marker proceed 4 paces (the modern kind, of single steps) on a bearing of approximately 210 degrees True to the cache nestled in ivy.

Scooped it at 4:30 pm. Just as the heavens opened up. Thank God for the hint! GPSr put me about 5 metres on the wrong side of the trail, on a deer trail. Searched it and got SOAKED! Returned to main trail and then saw the log. Easily found. GPSr now saying 22 metres away. Funny how torrential rain, heavy clouds, and dripping trees can screw things up!!!! Will rehide tomorrow.

Limo is hidden at N48 29.781 W123 22.044

Coverage was spotty at the time we hid it, so here's a clue to make it easy: look behind the ivy-covered log, about 5 meters off the path.

We took a whitebear and a squishy finger puppet from the cache. Since the camera was full, we left a new disposable camera. We left the old camera in the cache and emailed the cache owner to say it was full. Our other trade was some photo paper.

Thanks for the fun!

When I saw where this was, I decided to take the kids out to try for it. Nice easy find, perfect coords. Very pretty trail! We'll rehide on the weekend, if not before.

I did have a quick look, actually. The birds weren't helping me too much, and I had forgotten the clue, so it was kinda frustrating. Then a neighbour came along and asked me if I was lost. I guess they don't get too many people wandering around looking at the ground. I said I was enjoying the park, and he grudgingly admitted that I wasn't on private property. Between the satellite geometry and the suspicious/curious attitude of the natives, I decided I'd had enough for that day. Maybe someone else will have better luck. It's a great little trail system!

Sorry this took so long, gang! The cache is rehidden at:

N 48° 26.149 W 123° 24.388

It is behind a small tree with a hole in it, hidden in a rock crevice. Have fun!

By the way, if you look inside the small tree with the hole in it, you just might find another cache, that happens to be listed on the 'other' site. There is a travel bug in there that needs to move on. If you want to take him, please do, but you'll have to log him on the other site. He's in a Ziploc bag with a pen. If you take him, please put the 'mini' cache in the bag with the pen when you rehide it in the tree.

Yay!!!! I finally found it! We were up this way to drop some things off with bcrockcrawler, as well as to enjoy the air conditioning in the Cache Cruiser. Ahhhhh..........
We had the coords for the second most recent hiding place, and were on our way there, when we passed the RockCrawler on the way there as well. He confirmed that Limo had been found and rehidden. We visited for a bit, then off to find the Limo! I love the idea of marking the # of times each person has found it inside the lid (Cache Raiders and GG-great idea!) The Limo took an air conditioned cruise back down island. Great hide, Raiders! OK, Victoria folks, it's your turn!!

Fair enough. We are not disputing that the tape is missing. However, the fact is that we tagged the location and we don't appreciate you accusing us of not doing that.
That being said, after the location has been tagged no cacher should be responsible for the false removal of the tape. We are just fellow cachers being accused of something we have not done.

CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?

Well bcrockcrawler, we left a clearly visible 2 and a half foot piece of green tape (with the Date, Our Name, as well as "Happy Father's Day" written on it.) Don't just assume that we didn't tag the cache site. Maybe your next post should be an apology!

The limo is parked beside a lake at the base of the southernmost of two large trees. I piled some forest debris on it to prevent detection and I was careful not to scratch the paint while doing so. The trees are filled with the happy songs of numerous birds enjoying the warm sunshine so its a great place for a peaceful walk... but it IS possible to drive to within 2m of the cache!!! (I walked)

Sorry for the brief note (now removed) but I was running late and had to pick up my g/f Gail for our little get-a-way and cache hunting trip to Tofino. I only left the note to save someone else the hassle of trying to find it.

Gg said it was a "little cheeky"... WOW! What a great spot. I found it by poking around inside a tree (which was still standing too) with a stick and I heard the unmistakable sound of a cache container! Well done Gg - great hide!

Thanks Cacherunner and Gg.

Had really bad GPS coverage today at the site; the Magellan was giving 30 m EPE and the Garmin 70. That made for a big area to search, and as there's a lot of salal here, I had to admit defeat after 45 minutes, as I had an appointment.

Limo is parked at 48 34 588 123 34 080.
Accuracy was only 10 meters, but this should still be an easy find. You need to be on a secondary trail close to the parking lot. Look for the hollow stump with the v-shaped slit.
By the way, we took 2 signature items for our growing collection and left a small LED and $5.00.

Then I remembered that Geoscavenger is a lot taller than I am, and that his arms are longer than mine... Success! The little guy and I enjoyed this outing, and we'll rehide on the weekend.

I have instructed the chauffeur to park the limo after dropping me off at the Ferry. This has been done. It seems he wanted a nice view and to wave 'good-bye' as I sailed off into the setting sun... okay, okay, it was early morning! Coords are for a green object and hiding spot is between it and one of two nearby objects; which happen to be identical! Enjoy the hunt.

OK, sorry folks, 2 family disasters yesterday and this afternoon. (everbodys fine) Parked the Limo at 19:00 in an undeveloped park. N49 12.106 W124 01.776
We took moose #79 and replaced him with a moose called Limo, took a CD holder to make room for the camera from VI Transit, left $5, and xstitcher added a cross stitch kit.
Regarding the camera, when it's finished taking pics of cachers, e-mail cacherunner and we will develop the pics and post them here and on the archived VI Transit cache page.

Well, well, well. Was real surprised to see this cache's location. As we needed to get a camera from another traveling cache into this one so that the camera can be finished off, we went a grabbed the Limo. Our first find on the site. Will rehide the cache tonight if it stops raining, if it does not, it will be rehidden tomorrow.
Thanks for another Traveling cache for Vancouver Island.

My appologies to Mariner - I used the coords from the Mucic-Cachers Event at the Galley (An Extreme Night I think it was...) If you were 60m away then someone was in error... possibly me for using their coords!
Glad you found it anyway.

The Limo is now PARKED in a new location with a view.
The new coordinates are N 49 14.083 W 123 58.275.
I have added an original very collectable Rockcrawlin Moose and took out the travelbug to make room the container is very full.

Found this one on the way headed south didn't think it would still be there I guess the people on the other side of the Hat don't appreciate it so we'll move it north.

Just to clarify.......we had already posted the rehide and new coordinates before we ran into music-cachers. Just to keep things on the up and up!

Got here at about 5 PM, and basically trashed the lakeshore 60 meters from where the actual cache was. Went back to the Galley and "asked" for it. Cache rehid at N48 46.652, W123 55.513, Look in the root hole made by a fallen tree.

Thanks for the hide.

Up early for the drive down to Victoria... at least I got to ride around in a LIMO for the rest of the day. I was quite lucky to get there first this morning as I had to leave the house at 4:20...

Now where to hide it... considering that I roam quite freely from Victoria to Port Alberni to Courtenay there is a lot of ground to choose from!

Thanks Cacherunner. I have heard about these travelling caches but its fun to finally have one!
