Found it van der Decken found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Sunday, June 7, 2009Alberta, Canada

N 53° 32.583 W 117° 15.218

BCP167 - Obed
Elev. 1105 metres

This was the last cap of a 14 hour marathon drive involving many, many long miles of driving through the mountains. I saw the guard pole from the highway as I pulled over and parked, but what was the white structure in front of it? It turned out to be a pipe containing the pin and disk. This is the second "hinged" cap cover I've found in as many weeks. As previous loggers have noted, the disk is in pieces. All the pieces were in the hole by the pin, and I reached in and fished them out to read the numbers. You could read the numbers off the sign as well, but they do not match what's on the disk. It would have been interesting to see if I could have gotten numbers off the disk if it was in one piece at the bottom of the whole, but given that this was the last cap of a very long day, I was just as happy to be able to take the easy way out.

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.
