Geocache Description:

3rd in a series of commuter caches.

As you probably know by now, Calgary has the highest downtown daily parking rates in the country, and the second highest in North America, after New York City! There are too many tall buildings being constructed, and not enough new parking spots!

If you are one of the thousands of people who commute to the downtown core by car each weekday, you might utilize one of many parkades in the core.

This cache was inspired by a few of the caches I've found in downtown Las Vegas. There were too many muggles at ground level at any given time, so why not put the cache up a few levels and get a nice view while you're at it?

You are looking for a magnetic key holder with only room for a log, so please bring a writing utencil. There is a FTF prize as well.

Since this cache is in downtown, the GPSr reception will be bouncy at best. Please refer to Google Earth and the hint for the location. Your GPSr will lead you to the right direction once you are within a few metres from GZ but you may still be several metres off. Please wait a few moments until your GPSr regains its satellite reception.

You will notice that you will have a "watchful eye" upon you. This is why the hint is very specific. Please be stealthy when retrieving and replacing the cache. If you find that you're taking a long time finding it; consider using your camera phone as a "diversion." ;) Otherwise, please come back at a later time so that this cache can last!

Note: Even though this is located in a parking structure, I would highly suggest you do not park in the parkade unless you plan on visiting downtown. After all, parking rates are indeed high! Take transit or look for this in the evening or weekend and park on the street. I really don't want you to pay just to look for a micro.

Congrats to Zibby Dah on the FTF!
