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

Saturday, May 6, 2017Alberta, Canada

BCP598 Riverdale School

What a great old school with "Girls" and "Boys" carved into the stone over widely separated doors. This was one of our longer searches not helped by realizing that the details noted from a context picture were not complete enough. However, before we resorted to referring to pictures, Mrs Shark found the colourful cap. We think we could pick out the center dimple in the cap, but it might have been one of the many gouges--this one has taken a thorough beating. This is a great historical and interesting location! It had started to sprinkle at the previous cap, but was dry here. It got very, very wet and windy on the drive home but we've driven through much worse.

Thanks for a great day of caps, outforthehunt! We've always found a cap or two in a day or mixed a few in with our traditional cache finds whenever they were in the area, but today was dedicated to brass caps and we earned 25 smilies and never a logbook signed! It's sad to realize this will be our last cap to earn a smilie but we are very grateful for all the memories, adventures and discoveries this unique geocache has provided since we found our first cap in May, 2014. I don't know how many Favourite Points we might have given it if that were possible, but lots! Thanks so much, outforthehunt, for setting this cache up and all your efforts put into it over the past 15 years. Congratulations on a job very well done! If the cache lives on we look forward to continuing to find caps wherever we may wander in the province; they are an excellent tour guide!

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
