This cap will likely have a bit of nostalgia for a prolific Calgary cacher/cap hunter who once taught in the area years ago. I believe he actually taught at the Blue Hills Community School up the road from this cap (to be confirmed). We found the right road, drove past the school and parked next to GZ. We found a bushy area with lots of those lovely thorned wildroses and the AGT box and Survey Marker post that was mentioned in the hint. The distances and directions to fully utilize the hint didn't seem to make sense with the alignment of the hint items. I probed around, did some metal detector sweeps and nothing. After doing this for awhile, Mrs. TiE suggested I use my GPSr and see where it zeroes out. I was thinking "Do I look stupid?". All the hint items are right here. It was just a matter of lining things up. She walked to the other side of the bush (where the GPSr led her) and discovered a second AGT box and a second Survey Marker post (both mangled). I walked over, looked down and there was a pristine cap, right where it was supposed to be based on the hints and right where the GPSr said it should be. Still a satisfying find... well for Mrs. TiE. Thanks for posting this one OFTH. I suspect our prolific Calgary cacher/cap hunter will not be too far behind me on this one.

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.
