I get the impression that this one has irritated a few people. There are quite a number of holes in the vicinity, and most of them don't appear to be animal burrows! With the aid of my compass I first found the badly twisted remains of the guard pole just below ground level. I continued sweeping in ever widening arcs around the pole and quite some time found another area of deviation. But the dirt was hard packed, there was lots of grass growing out of it, and probing with the screwdriver didn't hit anything. Mind you, the dirt was so hard packed that I couldn't get more than half of the screwdriver to penetrate, and the compass was insistent. Time to dig! After 3-4 inches I hit paydirt in the form of brass. So now there's one more hole in the area, and the cap is now well and truly excavated and exposed for the next capper. Thanks for the cap!

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
