BCP611 - Peace River View

Well, let me start by saying this was probably one of if not the most rewarding cap I have done and for several reasons. First, it was a FTF, but that is really not that big of a deal. Second, it is a really beautiful setting with the river and valley. Probably the biggest reason was that fact that we had none of my usual cap hunting tools to make the find. When i approached the top of the hill, I noticed a GP, and immediately started digging with a broken shovel we happen to have in the truck. after several minutes, I realized that this was a post for one of the 3 rebars. I looked at the cap hint and made an educated guess where another rebar might be and looked down and there it was, another rebar. We happen to have a tape measure in the truck, so we attempted to draw a couple of arcs (although the tape was too short, so we had to estimate). We then started digging. After a bit of digging, I decided to look for the third rebar and within a few minutes, I was tripping over it. one more measurement and a bit more digging to find that the cap was not 10 cm below grade, but more like 1 cm and right in line with our arc!

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.
