Geocache Description:

Cachen er dedikeret til Steen, min gode ven og legekammerat, som druknede her i mosen tilbage i midten af 70'erne. Steen blev 10 år.

Koordinaterne er til en nærliggende parkeringmulighed
(Coordinates direct you to a nearby Parkingplace)

d yndet er dovent og klamt om man vil
y ak, det fik tag i en pige
n ede i sumpen hun opslugtes til
d yndkongens klæbrige rige
k vinden blev svanger med sin dyndkongemand
o g snart stod det klart for enhver i hans land
n ok barnet var skabt som sin fatter
g rundlagt med tvesind, hun lo og hun græd
e n stund gjord’ hun godt, det næste fortræd
n u kaldes hun dyndkongens datter

For at finde denne traditionelle cache skal du først finde de to beslægtede caches "Mosekonen" og "Lygtemanden"

I låget på de beslægtede caches finder du en tegn-kode med hhv. det Nordlige og det Østlige koordinatsæt. Tegnene skal omsættes til tal efter denne liste:

kryds = 1
hjerte = 2
firkant = 3
Cirkel med streg igennem = 4
Kors = 5
Lyn = 6
Stjerne = 7
Lys = 8
Smiley = 9
Cirkel af pile = 0

Hans Christian Andersen skrev i sit eventyr "Dyndkongens datter" fra 1858:

Derimod havde Menneskene paa den Tid et andet Kjolesnit end nu til Dags, men hver af dem, Træl eller Jæger, hvem som helst, der traadte ud paa hængedyndet, gik det for tusind Aar siden som det endnu gaaer dem, der komme her, de plumpede i, og sank ned til Dyndkongen, som de kaldte ham, der regjerede nede i det store Mose-Rige. Gungekongen kunde han ogsaa kaldes, men vi synes nu bedst om at sige Dyndkongen; og det kaldte Storkene ham ogsaa. Meget lidt veed man om hans Regjering, men det er maaskee også det Bedste.

In order to find this traditional cache you must first find the two related caches: "The Marsh Woman" and "The Will-o'-the-Wisp"

Inside the lid of the related caches you will find a set of icons which are the coded coordinates for this cache. The Icons can be translated into figures according to this list:

X = 1
heart = 2
square = 3
circle with at stroke through = 4
cross = 5
lightning = 6
star = 7
candle = 8
smiley = 9
circle made of arrows = 0

Hans Christian Andersen wrote in his fairy tale "The Marsh King’s Daughter" from 1858:

However, people dressed very differently from the fashion of today. But if any of them - thrall or huntsman, it mattered not - set foot in the quagmire, they fared the same a thousand years ago as they would fare today. In they would fall, and down they would sink to him whom they call the Marsh King, who rules below throughout the entire marsh land. They also call him King ot the quicksands, but we like the name Marsh King better, and that was what the storks called him. Little or nothing is known about his rule, but perhaps that is just as well.
