Geocache Name:

De drie hoofddeugden (GC3G6DH)

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

2.5/1.5

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

Last April, the Geocaching HQ videographer, reidsomething, had the opportunity to visit Bruges and attend a Mega-Event. While she was there, she had the opportunity to meet two geocachers and explore one of their multi-caches. Check out the video above to learn more about what makes this multi-cache amazing.

What the cache owner, sdw2, has to say:

“The thing we mostly like [about placing geocaches] is to think about something new and to work it out in our heads. Also exploring the area and seeing where we can do what is fun. Give our ideas shape. It is pleasing to see that our hard work is appreciated. Positive logs ensure the cache remains well maintained so other cachers  can also enjoy. It also encourages you to get back to work and look for ideas for a new cache.”

To Geocachers: “Be original and surprise us! Do not be scared of things of which you know nothing, as in our case the electrical system. There are always people around you who can help a hand with the technical development of your ideas.”

What geocachers are saying:

“Yesterday we found WP1 and WP2, but it was too late for the rest. This morning we decided to continue before leaving Bruges and it was worth it. The last stages were very interesting and with a little help we could find the final, where we did not dare to search. Very recommendable!” – dbox

“Thanks for a truly excellent cache…A brilliant first multi in Brugge! With a little help from the kind lady – as two clues were temporarily inaccessible. We like the squares picture because of the bright colours and unusual shapes. SL. Did swaps. Left GC. TFTC. Favourited.” – mykey987

“Had a lovely time learning about the history of how this cache came to be from the fabulous cache owners. Bruges is lucky to have such creative and thoughtful hiders in their geocaching community. Thank you Stef & Sara for the great afternoon.” – reidsomething

    Eventhough I couldn’t understand a word they said on the video, the video it’s self told the complete story!
    My only wish for this lifetime would be to be financially able to travel to these wonderful places (geocachers of the week/month/year) until then I’ll have to be content caching in Texas!

    Nomination: ‘(dans) la Semois’, GC53P0B
    Reason: its original location, at the bottom of a stream, smack in the middle of it.

    Nomination: GC3NXZV; Taipei Beimen Post Office / 臺北北門郵局
    This letterbox hybrid cache is a quite unique find; actually in a letter box in an urban post office. Quite an original location that brings travelers to a place less frequented.
