BCP067 Calgary Stanley Park
N51 01.123 W114 04.168
After recently watching a Nova episode on magnetic shift, I decided it may be a good idea to buy a global compass (Suunto MC-2G) ... just in case it happens in my lifetime. Now, I needed an excuse to play with my new toy so I headed off to BCP067. I briefly looked for this brass cap when hunting for an OBA cache in the area but I did not have a compass and there was no telltale hole so I abandoned the search after a couple of minutes. This time the GPSr was bouncing like crazy +/- 8M so I set up a grid and started the laborious process of scanning the area with the compass. After 25 minutes I got movement in grass up to my knees. I pulled out my trusty Lee Valley collapsable mini hand trowel and started to dig. I was getting pretty discouraged after excavating about 4 inches of dirt and rocks so I rechecked the compass. The compass was still dancing so I kept going and at about 5.5 inches down I hit paydirt. All you brass cap hunters should hustle over and log it while it is still excavated because I don't think it has been found for quite some time. TFTH.
