Pukta is the mascot of the Office of Boating Safety (OBS) - previously with the Canadian Coast Guard, but now with Transport Canada. "Pukta" comes from the Inuit word "puktaaq" which means to float or floating. OBS has produced a floating keychain as shown here. I have distributed 50 of these keychains into caches across Canada. I have numbered each one on the back and would like to track their destination. I would also like to know if they end up in a marine environment and where. If you pick up a numbered Pukta, would you please send me some information about the destination marine environment?  It could also prove useful for the Office of Boating Safety who donated these to me. You are under no obligation to keep these Pukta's in play - you can keep them, give them away to friends and family, etc. If you wish to keep them in play, then I would appreciate your assistance in tracking them. To update your Pukta Position, please e-mail me with the Geocaching mail feature at http://www.geocaching.com to username BLT and Family.  You can click on the Pukta # to list its complete history. Those that are in green coloured cells have travel photos. Check them out.

I have added a track history and distance information. My ISP doesn't provide all of the services of a full web server so to see the tracks in Google Earth, you must download the file (right click - save target as and then make sure that the extension on the file is .kml so that when you open it, Google Earth will launch and display the history track much like a real TB.

Thank you.
