After being housebound for most of the past three days, I had cabin fever. It wasn't quite so bad when the weather had been cool, windy or wet, but with today's sunshine and moderate temperatures it was just too much to resist. My leg injury was still with me, but I was getting around (slowly) and I figured I could handle a terrain 1.5 road side cap.
Umm, even with two good legs, I don't think that's a terrain 1.5...
I could see the guard post from across the road. There was a bit of a ditch to descend into and when I'd done that I noticed that the ground level that the cap was sitting on was now above my head. And the slope between it and me was very, very steep. I put my good leg up on it but when it slid right back down I knew there was no way I was getting up there. Fortunately, the approach from the south had a more moderate slope and I managed that without too many problems.
"Someone" (I wonder who!) has dug the cap up quite nicely. All I had to do was brush some dry dirt off it and it was ready for its closeup. It's been hit a few times with a large tool but the digits can still all be made out. The pins had gotten buried but I dug 'em up.
Thanks for the cap, outforthehunt.
