This cache was at a Mile marker in Langley. These cement markers, at one point where painted a bright yellow, and it ticked off mile after mile of Fraser Highway, reminding people how far they had come, and warning them how far they had to go. But time and development soon took over, and the cement mile markers were lost - their purpose no longer useful. Those that still stand are now grey in colour, their paint faded, some taken over by bush, or sunken into ditches. The markers were originally put in place when the highway was built in 1931. Mile zero was the main post office in Vancouver. The measurements ran east, along Kingsway and eventually crossed the Fraser River. The first post was installed, on the south side of the river, no sign of any surviving markers in Surrey. Just the five markers from mile 30 to 35 have been located.

I have also been over on the sunshine coast for work for a few weeks, and have gotten a few cool caches while there. Also seen a lot of cool things while caching.
|Can you spot the cache??|
Did a couple of caches near home last night with my wife Angelcheeks, our little guy and the geo dog. She went up to the area of one of the caches and thought there is no way this can be it as it seemed real, looked around and then let me try my luck. When I got to the object I gave it a shove and realized this is it. A very cool cache indeed.
