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

Sunday, 12 June 2016Alberta, Canada

I found BCP253 Edmonton CPR.

We had an unexpected and unfortunate incident that happened yesterday which required Mrs. Gumby, my mother-in-law, my daughter and I to make a late night trip up to the Royal Alexandra hospital. On the drive through the city I happened to look at my GPS, (out of habit) and noticed that we drove right by this cap but of course that was just a passing thought. We got to the hospital and found out what was going on, the other three stayed the night at the hospital but I had to head home in the middle of the night to take care of our dog Rambo. After getting a couple of hours of sleep I got up and was headed back to Edmonton when I text Mrs. Gumby to see how things were going. She mentioned that things had slightly improved which was great because at least they didn't get worse. That's when I decided that on my way back through the city this morning I would allow myself to stop and look for this cap.

I parked pretty close to the cap and made the short walk over. I didn't deal with much rain on the drive up but while I was here it started to rain pretty good. As I walked over to where my GPS zeroed out I noticed a patch of ground that looked pretty soft and after a kick I figured that the cap was there. I grabbed my trowel and after a little digging I uncovered the cap. Awesome now off to the hospital.

This cap was the perfect placement for me to add a smiley to my day. Thanks for another great cap. TFTBC

Context shot
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.
