Didn't find it PDOP's couldn't find Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Thursday, 02 September 2010Alberta, Canada

BCP495 Gregg River

Took a quick drive out to this cap on a warm sunny evening. Lots of folks getting a head start on the holiday weekend with several RV camps in clearings along the back roads. The last time I was on this road was for a November hike to Mystery Lake for a cache with MadMother a couple of years back.

The cap location turned out to be on a reclaimed drill pad which has been leveled and seeded to clover. There was no sign of the cap and a few minutes of compass sweeps didn't turn up anything. This one is listed as being 15cm BGL so it may have survived but it will likely need a real metal detector to find it.

I did find a mangled GP about 20 metres from ground zero, the #3 Reference Marker to the southeast across the road and the bearing tree. The other two reference markers were MIA.

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
