So there we are at the cap, after finding it quite easily, and I was just snapping a pic when a vehicle driving by sees us and stops. She rolls down her window and asks in a quite concerned voice, "What company are you from?" I laughed and explained that we weren't from any company and briefly explained that we were hunting for the survey marker, and pointed it out, and then explained it was part of a game. She blinked a couple of times and drove off. I was just writing down the numbers of the cap when she drives by again, this time from the other direction. She again inquired why we were hanging out near private property and taking pictures. She explained that she and the neighbours around here were quite concerned because they had seen somebody else here taking pictures, then a few days later three of the homes in this area were burglarized. Now I'm sure I didn't look the part of a burglar, with a 10 year old boy and a yellow labrador retriever in tow, but she was worried nonetheless. I empathized with her concerns, and again tried to explain about survey markers and GPS's. She obviously didn't understand and just then another car drove by and stopped. The first woman held a whispered conversation with the woman in the other car, both stealing furtive glances our way. I had had enough, finished up, nodded politely, and off we drove. However, other cachers might want to take note. The local populace probably won't receive us too well at this marker.

Anyway, thanks for the interesting cap!

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
