Trouver la Cache Traditionnelle L’Avarizon (GCWNGX) sur l’ïle de Jersey n’est pas une mince affaire. Vous devez marcher près de deux kilomètres depuis la côte sur un terrain délicat à marée basse. Assurez-vous de ne pas rester trop longtemps sur place ou vous finirez coincés par la montée de la marée. Par un incroyable concours de circonstances, un enfant est tombé par hasard sur la cache d’une toute autre manière – lorsqu’elle s’est échouée à plus de 190 km de l’autre côté de la Manche dans le Sussex de l’Ouest, au Royaume-Uni !
