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

Saturday, 08 September 2007Alberta, Canada

BCP065 CalgaryBowness

We had planned a bike ride along the Bow River pathways today, but had to go check on our "Signal Hill ArtWalk" cache first. When oldest GeoKid went to join Mr. GeoK on a short bike ride to the final coordinates, he discovered that his derailer was really bent, so he couldn't ride.
After Mr. GeoK returned and confirmed everything was find with the hide, we loaded up all the bikes and headed off to Bow Cycle.

The service dept. at Bow Cycle was excellent, as usual, and they had the bike repaired within a half hour. However, the storm clouds were building and lunch hour was rapidly approaching, so we decided against a long bike ride. That's when Mrs. GeoK noticed this nearby brass cap on the GPSr map screen, so we piled back in the vehicle and headed over.

Chain link fence and metal bridge trusses in the area caused a fair bit of bounce. We were just about to break out the magnetic compasses to search for a magnetic anomoly when Mrs. GeoK glanced over the fence and voila - there it was. No digging required, even.

Thanks for another one...e-mail will be on the way momentarily.

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.
