BCP185 - Calgary - Oakridge
After reading the GeoKs log and speaking to Mr. GeoK at the Pizza and Beer event I had to stop and try and find this one on the way home. We parked the Jeep about 150m from the cap and left the high beams on but it didn't help.
Got to ground zero and found a fairly deep hole but the metal detector didn't reveal any brass hidden inside. Further inspection revealed that it appeared to be an animal burrow of some sort. Using the flash from my cell phone camera I swept around the ground and tried to find a likely spot but didn't see anything obvious.
Eventually I found some softer dirt and the metal detector was going crazy. I started digging with my hands and went as far as I could but never uncovered brass.
I really wanted to find this one while it should still be somewhat exposed. I think daylight might of helped a bit, but how hard could it be to find a hole a foot deep? Hopefully I can get back to this one again with a better digging tool to see what I can find.
