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

Tuesday, 30 August 2016Alberta, Canada

BCP253 Edmonton CPR

Man, this road was busy today. Mrs BVPete, Jack and I were on the wrong side of the road to get into those big empty CPR yards so we turned left onto 78th and parked in a grocery store lot. Then I made a solo walk to the cap location and had to wait a long time to get a break in traffic to cross the road. Once there my GPSr started acting up, so I counted posts for gumbyphv's context photo to aid in locating the cap (thanks gumbyphv). The hole was filled in so after using the compass and screwdriver to fine tune the spot, I dug it out. I think I must have looked like a old guy in some sort of trouble, grovelling around in the dirt beside this busy road, filled with speeding cars, as a kind person came and kindly asked if I needed some help. I showed him what I was doing, thanked him for his kindness and off he went. After that, I finished up quickly before someone else called an ambulance or some such thing . Nice to see there are still some Good Samaritans out there.

Thanks for the cap ofth.

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
