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

N 50° 59.867 W 114° 04.823

BCP236 - Calgary (Meadowland Park)

Had tried to find this one once before while doing a stage of a multi cache and couldn't find it. I was lacking the proper tools on that trip.

I arrived at ground zero and started searching. Sure enough, there was a hole dug right where I zeroed out...I remembered that from the last time. I started digging with my hands and found nothing. Hmm...quick look around didn't reveal any other promising spots so I went to the Jeep and pulled out the metal detector and a trekking pole.

Back to the promising hole -- BEEEEEEEP! Sure enough, the detector confirmed there was metal there. Digging with the pole revealed nothing however. Hmm again. Back with the detector, this time making more subtle movements trying to pinpoint the location. OK, it seems to be a little off to the side of the main part of the hole. I focused a couple inches to my left and soon the pole hit brass. Whew!

Dusted the cap off with my hands and snapped my pictures and on to the next one!

BCP236Finally hit pay dirt on this one!

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
