We parked across the road from the cap's indicated position and began the up and down route to our objective. Down into the first ditch (just damp), up over the road (finally getting our chance to make a dash), down into the second ditch. Oops, water in this one but we found a very battered piece of lumber someone had laid across the water. It was very wobbly but we managed to make it across without misadventure. Up and over the train tracks (no traffic to dodge there) and down into the dry ditch (maybe over by all the survey tape?).
This may be the most decorated cap we've ever found. Surveyor's tape in a w-i-d-e variety of colours on the fence, tied to the marker post, even around the cement base! It's a petite cap but it's on a raised cement pedestal and excessively beribboned, still someone (mysteriously since BVPete's most recent photos) had left another helpful (?) clue! We retraced our tracks and arrived back at the vehicle the same as we'd left (dry and unbruised by vehicular incident) but with a new type of cap in our collection and one more brass cap smilie. Thanks for the (ahhh, it's so tiny ) cap.
