BCP249 Ross Creek
With an unusually poor day's ratio of five finds to three DNFs on caps it is five finds that we wouldn't have made had ManjaLou not set up this trip--and it was great to end with three consecutive finds on a wonderfully fun day spent with them! There is some comfort in that two of the caps we DNF'd have never been found and the third has eluded searchers for several years.
We liked the country flavour of this one--it initially looked like it was contained in a rusty old pail forgotten beside a hefty and rustic railway tie gate post and marked by a weather faded marker post.
This would be winter friendly most years unless snow is plowed onto it by the landowner or there is a heavy accumulation of snow.
Once we were ready to head home, Mr Shark asked if we could return the way we'd come even though we had missed the proper turn and could have taken the direct route back to the highway. Instead, Mr ManjaLou obligingly went the extra mile east to where Mr Shark pointed out a field stone barn. Mr Shark is especially fond of old barns, but we were all glad that this cap had brought us out this way to find this unusual building. Thanks so much, outforthehunt, for the caps that we enjoyed today, the variety of markers and the places they took us, whether we found them or not!
