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!
