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!
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.
