Geocache Description:

Location: Langstrup Mose, Denmark

This geocache is chronologically Denmark's second stash. It is an easy 2, although it is advisable to wear rubber boots for the last bit. The location is best approached from the north and the village of Langstrup. Following the gravel road from there to the bottom of the bog makes for a pleasant (~3 km round trip) stroll. Do not be too intimidated by the dire-looking access signs. As long as you are on foot or bicycle and stick to the roads, you hereby have a lot owner's permission to enter the bog.

The pristine contents of the stash were:

1 Lego Technic (appropriately named) Swamp Robot Kit
1 Dracco Foot Bag
1 Plastic Cobra Snake
1 European Space Agency Key Ring

and last but not least:

1 Tin of Kippers (best before Dec 31, 2003)

The latter item was included in deference to Denmark's first geocache, "Kippers in the Jungle" which was placed on September 30, 2000. It somehow seemed oddly befitting to us that all Danish caches should contain kippers (at least initially) and we therefore hope to have provided an example for others to follow.

Note added 16 August 2009:
As noted by several visitors, the cache location can nowadays be approached via the publicly accessible Langstrupstien from both the north and south. The cache, however, is located on private property with the owner's permission. Visitors need not fear the nearby hunting club - the shooting range points well away from both the public path and the cache location.
