Found it Tommi Potx found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Monday, July 6, 2015Alberta, Canada

SitRep Op Sandpiper, Day 3.
BCP577 Burstall
A short drive due west of Burstall is CFB Suffield [aka Suffer-field] Canadas' largest military training area., and home of Defense Research Establishment Suffield [DRES].
Heres an event for you: A nuke sim, designed to test ventilation systems in hardened buildings, the 500-Ton event called DIAL PACK was conducted on 23 July 1970 at the Defence Research Establishment Suffield (DRES)- an isolated, 1000 square mile area in Alberta, Canada consisting entirely of barren prairie. It was a completely spherical ball of 32.6 pound blocks of cast TNT. The sphere was nearly 27 feet in diameter or almost as tall as a four story building. The lower third was encased in styrofoam to support it.
That and a lot more weird, strange and deadly military stuff goes on that can quite literally, "take your breath away".... [like nerve gas... ]
Never volunteer for temporary duty at DRES!!

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
