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!
