Found it Bearberry's Cub found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Monday, 05 December 2016Alberta, Canada

BCP063 Calgary (Calgary Tower)

Have you heard the story about the two geocachers who walked into the Calgary Tower gift shop looking for a brass cap? Well quite the story it is. Bearberry and I made more than one trip to the Calgary Tower in search of the elusive brass cap. Each time we went around, over, under and through every nook and crany of the exterior of the Tower that we could see looking for this brass cap and each time we came up empty handed.

On a return trip we went into the gift shop and asked of the clerk if they knew anything about the brass cap but as their eyes glassed over and they shook their head we knew we weren't going to get the desired response.

The next time we were downtown we decided to try again. Bearberry's theory was there might we someone else in the shop that day that would know about the brass cap, NOT!!!!

It wasn't until a discussion with a more learned brass cap hound that I discovered what had to be done in order to log this find. Wow, I sure wish Bearberry and I had known earlier. In fact, the story would surely be that much more interesting if Bearberry had written it. Thanks for the interesting hunt.

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.
