Mrs. TiE and I were out for a walk around the reservoir today and were going to pass right by this cap. We got to GZ looking for a 4cm AGL cap and didn't immediatley spot it. Hmmm... I spotted a buried rock with a slight depression next to it. It wouldn't be the first time that the elevation of these caps had changed. I didn't come prepared for digging with an AGL cap, but I did have a compass. I did a sweep of the area and the only deflection I got was an obvious 180 degree spin right at the rock. I managed to pry the rock up with a stick and then used the stick to pull out an inch or 2 of earth and spottted something orange. A bit more scraping and there was a brightly orange painted iron survey stake right at GZ. A satisfying find. Thanks for the cap OFTH!

Update:
After checking the Spin 2 Database and agreement with vdD and OFTH, the orange stake is indeed the survey marker and the green light has been given to log.

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.
