BCP231 - Blizzard Lake
Out for yet another day of capping and caching with OBA, this time in Lethbridge!! Along the way there and back. This was our last cap of the day, and we were determined. Well, I was kind of determined... OBA was going to throw in the towel but I gave the metal detector a few good swipes and came up with a beep or two! As we dug deeper, the beep didn't disappear (like with the 3 spikes we found previously), so we kept going. Eventually she got a SCRRRRR. But it turned out to be a rock. Then moved over a little bit and got a little something else. We couldn't see what it was as the dirt kept falling back in the hole, but eventually she touched metal! FOUND IT!! Yay!! What a victory! Not only did we find the cap that hadn't been found in a while, but I got some great pictures of that storm heading our way! What interesting and DARK clouds! I think OBA now understands the excitement of capping. Too bad the logging changes will make this the last one she finds. I'm not sure what I'll do, but it would be nice to whittle them away eventually. I have thoroughly enjoyed finding Brass Caps and wish I had done it more while I was traveling for work. I had the opportunity, I just didn't have them programmed into my little GPSr at the time. Thank you for all the work you've done with these hundreds and hundreds of caps and thousands upon thousands of logs.
I'll get the pictures sent over as soon as I can, I just wanted to get the last smileys I could for this cache. TFTCap!!
