Funny how government is too dumb to plan a highway and yet they are smart enough to built a complete suburban road system and all connections. Could it be a highway costs and selling ground gives profit? hmmm

jikes! so this is where they grow them mosquitos... holymoly. many many many many many musquitos. Did I mention there are MANY mosquitos? Oh, and the box is filled to the brim. It took me quite some time to locate the logbook. Presumably a very nice cache. With the mosquitos guarding it: not enough time to look around.

#1405 1 oktober 2010

super cache, but no d:1.5!

#1407: 1 oktober 2010

harhar... we did not fall for this one. Very well executed. I think you could as well move it to the front! The more you try to hide it, the more noticeable it will be.

oops, wrong text with the right cache. This is a very cool, and eary way to hide a cache! In these surroundings we were a bit careful in just lifting things...

Crossmage is showing us around town. And man, is he doing a good job! He even fixed us up with a FTF. I drove us to the location, and Crossmage found it, so a true co-ftf.

GC2FWFY Can you hear me now?  geocaching 

#1410: 2 oktober 2010

So we are driving from Houston over to Austin, and suddenly Crosssmage hits the brakes and turns the wheel. We end up somewhere where there is nothing. Or is there?

Yup, after (like the previous cacher) walking straight by the cache location, we retraced our steps and I was able to lift the cache.

CO- second to find (stf) ;)

I did not even realize this was a nano until I picked it out of its hiding place. Lovely litle station you've got here in a very nice town.

GC1K5CM Old Jail  geocaching 

#1412: 2 oktober 2010

After running around the fence we finally went to the inside. Nice! a church that doubles as a jail...
The actual grab took a little more effort. Many mugles were wondering what the heck we were all doing in there.

Neat! We know the original fachwerk-häuser from Germany. Its cool to see one here. FYI: these buildings are usually painted white, while the wood is tarred in a black color.

A large is always worth a detour. Since this detour took us about 5 minutes it was double worth it.
Man oh man, dis we have fun with the veil. There will be a TON of pictures added to this log, if I can get permission from everybody...

GC2B034 Necropolis of Britannia Manor III  geocaching 

#1415: 2 oktober 2010
My first response to Crossmage's log was: ditto. Or: “yip. What he said”. Than I thought that would be the chicken way to go, so here goes:

Our cars took us to the undertaker in town. We quickly discovered the meaning and the followings of his life, and jotted down the information we thought we would need. We also were smart enough to take a whole bunch of pictures so we could later read what he h* was going on. We did the easy thing: mounted the cars and went onwards.

Chapter two almost became our Nemesis. We thought hard and Long, we figured Stephan Hawkins had something to do with it. We looked left, we looked up and down. We even looked right. At the end, after the hourglass showed us one and a half hour was lost, our trustworthy companion decided to start calling helplines. I had already given up and was sitting in the shade looking at the rest of our group still trying to solve the problem posed. Our rescuer talked to Kansas, he even talked to Spain.
Finally the answer came up. And it was blisteringly simple. We just were not using our eyes. The world was at peace, and we reflected upon ourselves. All the clues that were given turned out to be wrong, misleading or plain false.

Chapter three was a breeze of fresh air. The cars brought us over, we halted and there it was. Sticking out as if it had always been waiting for us to come by. As if it had always trusted us to find the answer to chapter two. And this time we did not fail. We found it even before leaving the cars.

At chapter four we were indeed almost removed from the grounds by force. There was a private party and we were not invited. But the local guardian turned out to be a blessing in disguise. He gave away the most important clues because he wanted to get us of the grounds as fast as possible. We tried to have a drink of water, but he would not allow us.

At chapter five we almost died. Those steps are way way way way way high. Thankfully the view is worth it, so we stood in amazement for a while while our companion solved the puzzle. We would not have seen what he saw in the blink of an eye. We saw our neighbors country. The view is almost identical to that you would find on top of the sides of the river Rhein in Germany. We felt right at home. Almost.

Chapter six was a whole different story. We could count what we needed to count, but the story is unclear. Shall we count what we see, or shall we count what is actually there? We tried both answers. Any which one would have been valid, so we accepted reality and went on our way.

Chapter seven was a stop along the way. No more, no less. Stop.

Chapter eight however turned out fine. We were where we needed to be and we saw what we needed to see. While navigating our way along the path we noticed strange things going on. First we past some sort of gate. It was as if we were taken on a journey through space and time itself. The further we entered the gate, the further the world seemed to part from us. When we finally emerged on the other side we had entered whole new world. A world where we did not fit in. We were the outsiders, we were the strange bunch. We did not belong where we were, for we were alive and all else was dead, dying or in more than one ways: not alive. We pushed onwards, took a few turns, fell into a few traps, and finally we saw our goal.

The door was not locked, so everything we had done so far had been time consuming but not necessarily necessary. We opened the door, took a deep breath and dove inside. We did the thing you do with the quarters and even did it with a few eurocoins. Since we are from the Netherlands we tend to carry that type of money. FYI: eurocoins also work in machine ;)

We took quite some time discovering and looking all around, so by the time we left the tower, it had become pitch dark. Thankfully the guardian had left some more surprises, so we were able to leave the premisis without being harmed by the non-living things.

See? Better than “yip. What he said”... And since we are (s far as I can see) the first Dutch geocachers to receive a smiley at the Necropolis, I think we did alright. Although I take off many hats to Crossmage for his log. And it is only thanks to him and his unlimited cell-phone plan we managed to the end.

Thank you LordBritish for this cache. It was one of the best we have done in our caching “career”. Like Inge said: “better than SixFlags Halloween party in the Netherlands”
