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.
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!

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