What is Geocache Army?

The Geocache Army is not what you may expect. In fact, it’s made up of toys! Indeed, the Geocache army consists of multitudes of little green toy army soldiers – much like those you and your friends may have played with as a child – left in various geocache site area by Kim and Terri Ferguson, a pair of geocache aficionados.

The Fergusons have left a Geocache Army soldier at every single geocache that they have found, and they have planted many at the geocache locations they’ve left along the North Shore of Vancouver. The Fergusons are proud to announce that the ‘initial deployment’ of the troops began on June 21, 2003 in both North Vancouver and Vancouver itself.
