BCP001 Calgary (Varsity)
As we moved forward from our afternoon appointment to our evening's destination it seemed fitting to travel backward from one of the most recently published caps (BCP666) to this special cap, BCP[b]001[/b], the first, the beginning of it all! With the publication of BCP668 today and over 16,000 finds on the Brass Cap Cache, it was obviously A Very Good Idea!
This was our only real encounter with muggles today. An extended family was right on top of the cap as Mrs Shark tried to point it out to Mr Shark once we were parked. "Right there by that guy's left foot." "There, that kid just rode his bike over it." Fortunately, the family moved on down the path and left the field, er, sidewalk, open for us. While an unseen chickadee chanted "cheeseburger...cheeseburger...cheeseburger" and a passing muggle gave us a strange look, we captured this initial cap.
This cap has taken a significant hit or two from snow clearing equipment and the sidewalk has cracked around it but it remains firmly in place. The lettering around the edge has suffered badly in places, but the numbers range from faint to very readable.
Thanks for continuing to maintain and expand this cache outforthehunt. It was a special moment to visit the very first one!
