Used my compass to locate this one. Poked around with a screw driver and found it below a couple inches of soil. Used trowel to carefully remove a circle of sod, only to discover that I was uncovering a rock. Replaced the grass, poked around again, and found the cap next to it. Removed an inch of soil, and there it was. It's about 15 inches north along a line from the sidewalk to the end of the fence and perpendicular with the sidewalk side of the nearby wooden post.

As I was doing this, a young kid was driving out of control on a moped, dragging another kid behind him. The other kid finally got off as the driver continued straight towards me at a fast speed. I moved behind the wooden post just as the moped driver passed by and wiped out. He was okay, but the fallen kid was crying. A mother came to the rescue.

I wiped the dirt off the cap and took my pictures.

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.
