When BVPete suggested we get together today in the pouring rain to look for a cap that already had a DNF on it after a good hunt, I was questioning his mental faculties. When both van der Decken and I agreed to join him, I began to question ours. As we dug in the rock and muck around the railing and pipe support by the trestle in Canmore under our makeshift shelter, I'm sure the few people that passed by and their dogs began to question our collective sanity. As my companions already stated, we struck out on this one, but not for the lack of trying. I'll join in and say I highly doubt this on is there, but it wouldn't be the first time we were wrong. In hindsight, I am starting to think that this adventure was a plot masterminded by bearberry and the cub and agreed to by BVPete on their recent trip up Ha Ling Peak. BVPete had 2 new caches published west of Bragg Creek this morning. It is also well known that bearberry has a bit of an obsession with BVPete FTFs . As I drove by the Bragg Creek turnoff on Hwy 22X early this morning and realized how close to those caches I was, I had a thought that perhaps bearberry had convinced BVPete to get vdD and I out of town this morning on this fool's errand to ensure another bearberry FTF or two. Sure enough, two bearberry FTFs. Well played my friends! Sneaky... sneaky... too funny!
A good time as always when we get together. Next up is another unfound cap that we have all struck out on in the past that we are going to try a group effort to find. I think we will wait for nicer weather though. Thanks OFTH!
