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

Tuesday, 01 September 2009Alberta, Canada

BCP063 Calgary Tower

After I parked and walked to the base of the tower I realized that it was going to be a challenge to get to this cap. Not sure if you do this, but sometimes when I'm thinking about things I play with an elastic band. I found myself with an elastic in my hand as I pondered how to get to this cap. Then it hit me...if I could find enough elastics I might be able to rig up something.

So, I cleaned out every office supply store in the downtown area (sorry to everyone who couldn't find any elastics) and I started braiding them together. Now I had a huge elastic which I attached to nearby window cleaning platform. I had to convince the window cleaner that it was all going to be ok - he wasn't so sure. After talking with him for a few more minutes he gave in. So, he went up to the top floor (which gave me a little tension on the elastics as I held the other end and waited on the sidewalk) and I was almost set. I just needed to get the right angle and a bit more tension....

Thankfully, there was a passing bus ansd I had my bus pass in my pocket. I jumped on and watched as the elastic stretched and stretched. Then, at just the right moment I lept from the bus and I went up, up, up and up. Good thing I had the right tension and angle. I landed only a couple meters from the cap, got the info and easily found my way down (I had a huge pile of elastics to cushion the landing)

Thanks for the Brass Cap!

BTW: anyone looking to buy any elastics - send me an email.

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.
