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

Tuesday, 14 October 2014Alberta, Canada

BCP659 NSR

After finding BCP039 we discussed what a great day we'd had, but how the light was fading, how we were tiring and hungry and still had to get home. We had other caches and caps that we'd hoped to find but we'd found the ones we most wanted to find and none of the others were near at hand.

Then Mr Shark asked if there were any caps nearby to the west. Well, it happened that the nearest unfound cap was less than 500 metres...to the west. This cap was not on our list and we like to do our homework before beginning a search, but we threw it all to the wind (which was getting quite chilly) and took our chances with the minimal information that we had at our fingertips.

As we came into view, we couldn't believe our eyes! Approximately where the cap should be were two pieces of flagging tied to a couple of pieces of grass that had escaped the lawn mower. There appeared to be a leaf filled hole inches away--and there was, with a cap at the bottom! We could hardly have picked an easier find if we'd tried! Only our second cap ever seen with an error on it and both in this area. The survey crew must have been through on a Monday!

[i]Now[/i] it was time to quit! Mrs Shark found out that the reason we'd gone west was to go to a favorite restaurant that is no longer found along the Red Deer River! Sneaky Mr Shark!

Thanks for all the caps that we found today and the views and places they showed us!

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.
