The storm that I'd been leapfrogging ahead of all day was finally catching up with as I began the turn for the long drive home. The road that showed on the GPS turned out to be a one lane pathway with no real place to pull off. Between that and the rain that was beginning to fall from the leading edge of the storm, a quick find was of the essence.
There was no immediate sign of the cap at ground zero except for a few broken pieces of lath. The marker post is long gone, so I was glad to see something to let me know I was in the right area. The long hint said the cap was above ground, but that didn't seem to be true anymore either. A bit of probing with a screwdriver uncovered the cap covered by loose dirt in the midst of a ground squirrel colony at ground zero. The cap itself is in very good shape, though whoever did the original stamping was having a really, really bad day! Thanks for the cap.
