Just HAPPENED to be in the area ... ...

I was on a bit of a high after a geocoin buying frenzy where I snagged two gold and three bronze goins ( Lighthouse Geocoin ) so I decided to see how I'd fare with the new cap, only 40 km from work.

Made it to the cache area quickly enough and parked on the opposite side ( north ) of the road from the cap. It was dead dark out in the country but I had my lil' backup flashlight on my glovebox so, with it, a hand shovel, a screwdriver, and a my PDA which has a crappy .3 mb camera on it, up I went.

Saw the survey marker quickly and started poking around. Nothing TOO promising but I started to dig around anyway. What a lousy shovel! It was bending a few minutes after I started using it. Eventually, I had to truck back down to my Jeep and bring my folding shovel.

Uncovered a bolt, huh? I looked down at my GPSr ... 9 meters away! Doh! West I went until I found another survey marker, whew. Started poking around AGAIN! Again, nothing promising. Then I swung my lil' flashlight around and several inches away was a nicely exposed cap, Eureka! Boy, you miss a lot in the dark.

Took some crummy pics which I'll forward to OFTH ... thanks for the nice cap!

Edit : that's OFTH, not OTFH!

Oops, that's a bolt, not a cap!
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
