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.
