BCP639 Makers' Madness Flash Cap:
Since Samantha and I left before the cap was found on Saturday, we decided to head back there today. I brought along my metal detector although I figured I wouldn't need it since the cap had just been exposed days before. I was glad I did because the recent snow covered up all traces of its existence. Based on vdD's log and flagging, it was a short search and the detector soon beeped. I still could not see the cap so I had to chip out about 1 cm of ice to fully expose it. I left a rock on top of the cap so that it should be easier for others to find. Just as we left the cap, Samantha found what looked like a small piece of fur. I ordered her to drop it which she did and as she approached me I could see a quill between her nose and upper lip. Fortunately, it was very easy to pull out and I was pleased that it was just a small portion of a porcupine pelt. Thanks for another Brass Cap and an email is on its way.
