Found it The Dawntreaders found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Sunday, October 31, 2010Alberta, Canada

BCP122 High River

When I walked up to this one I thought it was going to be a routine grab; not so. The first thing I saw when I was stnding at GZ was a well-cap marked with the letter 'V' This proved to be a bit of an omen of things to come. I tried to pry the lid out of its socket but to no avail... I had to beat a retreat back to the vehicle and get my trusty 16" screwdriver. Once this implement was I hand I made my way back to GZ only to find that the increased leverage was not helping... at least at first. A few good shots to the hand and the lid popped off.

My second disappointment.

I stood and stared at a reflection of myself in a well full of water... 10 inches of water over top of the cap.

Now what?

I did what every self-respecting capper would do, I put my arm down the hole and proved to myself that the cap was still intact by actually touching it. As a result of putting my arm down the hole the displacement cause to water level rise to a point above my elbow. It was not quite enough to cause it to flow over the rim of the well.

I'm sure many of the passing motorists thought I was at least half-daft!

Thanks, The Dawntreaders

PS I think 'V' stands for vindetta or vindictive!

infoA virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location. Depending on the cache "hider," a virtual cache could be to answer a question about a location, an interesting spot, a task, etc. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit.

Because of the nature of these geocaches, you must actually visit the location and acquire the coordinates there before you can post. In addition, although many locations are interesting, a virtual cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit.

Virtuals are now considered waymarks on Waymarking.com.
