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

Monday, November 9, 2015Alberta, Canada

BCP706 - Mitchell Ave

I got a "notification" from Mrs ManjaLou that there was a new cap! Well, count me in! And we arranged to meet there. I didn't want to slow any of us down with minutiae so they didn't realize that I was closer to the cap than they were. I decided I would repay their kindness by using my extra time to find and clean up the cap ready for them.

The coords took me to a spot where my flashlight immediately highlighted a suspicious circle in the grass; apparently, the cap was used for some summertime construction at the school nearby. I lifted off the sod plug (thanks, gumbyphv, for doing the heavy lifting!)...cleaned the cap...took photos... and looked up to find that the sky had cleared and the stars shone quite brightly with a dark school yard on one side of the street. ManjaLou arrived, we took more photos, replaced the plug so the hole and plug were not tripping hazards on the school ground, looked at the stars and had a great chat until the crisp air started to nip at our ears.

The cap is at the edge of a school yard (which should cause few if any problems for access), is now several centimetres below ground level and has several significant tool marks, two of which have mostly obscured a letter and a number. A nicely located cap and ManjaLou and I sure had fun with it this evening! Thanks, outforthehunt, we always appreciate a new BCP in Red Deer!

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 Waymarking.com.
