Found it van der Decken found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Saturday, 30 October 2010Alberta, Canada

N 54° 43.783 W 113° 19.328

BCP076 - Athabasca
Elev. 548 metres

Since I'd been up northeast of Edmonton before, I knew enough to keep the gas tank full whenever the opportunity presented itself. So after stopping in at Frains, I still had lots of gas to get not only to Athabasca, but Edmonton and beyond.

Athabasca on a Saturday night; I say "interesting" and leave it at that. I was glad that the traffic was light as I approached ground zero and scanned the darkness for a place to pull over. I spotted the pull out beside ground zero on the way past but had to keep going until I found a place to turn around. Once again I pulled the "headlights in the general direction of the cap" trick and headed over with the flashlight to search. The marker post was easy to find, but the cap eluded me for a bit. Just as I was wondering if I should head back to the car for the trekking pole and the compass I spotted it about a metre away from the post, just not in front of it. If you project along the imaginary fence line, that's the direction you want to be looking along. The cap is at ground level, and aside from a single tool mark, is in excellent shape. Thanks for the cap outforthehunt; I'll have to come back sometime in the daylight to have a look around.

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
