What brought you here?:
My wife and I decided to drive from International Falls, MN to Baudette, MN by driving through Ontario so we could Cache and Waymark in a new province. This brought us to Emo and the local Canada Post. When I stopped in to take some pictures an employee asked how she could help me and we had a nice chat about Waymarking.

Visit Instructions:
To post a log to an existing Canada Post waymark, you will need to post a unique picture of the Canada Post sign. Including your gps device in the picture is not neccesary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval, as long as all other details of your log are acceptable.
