Geocache under the water main access cover

279

I could call it a typical geocache hiding technic by now. I remember the first of this kind I found in a parking area in Germany. Trust me it took us a while then. And it is still challenging because it can really fold into the area very well. This one was hidden in the Netherlands opposite to a fire station so parking close itself was a challenge.

I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I or my family use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

The location

This geocache was placed close to a fire station in the Netherlands. I apologise ahead as I forgot to take a picture of the fire station itself. We were on our way to a hotel for a day away from home. As we were driving randomly stopped at some places.

The search

After parking the car we walked to the coordinates. Where to start? As you can see many obvious hiding places are available. We found many geocaches hiding on such trees before so let’s start there.

We checked many of the trees. To be honest all of them. Many leaves to move but no geocache up there. At that stage we decided to read more logs. Not much mentioning about how they found it. And then some hint in one of the logs. It mentioned stepping on it.

After reading that post it was easy to spot the location. How many times did I step over it? At least a dozen but that is just part of the game. Not to mention I also stepped some unwanted surprise a dog’s owner forgot to take home.

The neighborhood

The cache owner could put a lot bigger container in there for some travellers to spend a few days around there.

I believe we all get lucky from time to time. Do you see the leaf falling on the picture? I made it while walking back to the car. It was absolutely unintentional but is looks cool.

There are many scenery in the Netherland similar to this one. You find them in cities, villages, along bicycle routes. They are everywhere. The small problem with such locations is that sometimes they hide the geocache on the other side of the water. The cache owners usually tell you to get prepared so I highly recommend you read the whole cache description before you park your car.

Remark

I know it is against the rules of geocaching to dig anywhere any holes. This geocache was not hidden by me. I know for the fact that some places have these left behind. You can purchase such a water main access cover, I’m aware of that. I left this remark here as previously on my earlier blog I got some criticism on misleading people to create such hides.
