Geocache Description:

På dansk

Denne cache er en af en serie, der har til formål at sætte fokus på det nye danmarkskort efter kommunalreformen i 2007. Der er cacher i alle 98 kommuner og de 5 regioner. For at finde en regionscache, skal du først finde alle kommunecacher i den region. Regionscachen i Nordjylland hedder Nordjylland - Danmark.

Om Jammerbugt Kommune

Jammerbugt Kommune består af de gamle kommuner Aabybro, Brovst, Pandrup og Fjerritslev. Kommunen er beboet af ca. 39.000 mennesker fordelt på godt 86.000 hektar. Ingen steder er kommunen mere end 20 km bred. Mod nord er den afgrænset af Jammerbugten, mod øst af Hjørring Kommune, Brønderslev Kommune og Aalborg Kommune. Mod vest har vi Thisted Kommune og mod syd Limfjorden.

Jammerbugt Kommune er mest kendt for sin placering ved Vesterhavet og de fleste kan vel nikke genkendende til navne som Blokhus og Svinkløv. Mod syd finder vi Gjøl, kendt fra Hans Kirks "Fiskerne" og Gjøltroldene. Men Jammerbugt Kommune byder generelt på dejlige naturoplevelser:

Fosdalen, med det helbredende vand og de smukke slugter og skrænter.
Svinkløvene, et fantastisk sted lige omkring solnedgang.
Rødhus og Tranum, alle tiders sted at bade, ikke alt for mange mennesker.
Hundeskoven ved Hune, dejligt skovområde, hvor vovsen kan løbe alt det den gider.
Trædestenene, et overset sted i Store Vildmose.
Ulvedybet og Gjøl Bjerg, et stort fuglereservat. Ved Gjøl Bjerg ligger nogle dejlige sheltere, hvor cachens ejere faktisk tilbragte deres bryllupsnat.

Om cachen

Selve cachen ligger ved Bratbjergsøerne nær Tranum. Området er en privat aktieplantage, og derfor er der ikke adgang om natten.

Området er en gammel grusgrav, som i dag er blevet lavet om til et skønt rekreativt område. Der er plantet løv- og nåletræer og en del frugttræer og -buske.

Ved den sydvestligste ende af den største sø, står en mindesten for Bratbjergmanden. Bratbjergmanden hed i virkeligheden Christian Jensen Mann og han kom fra en slægt af kloge mænd og koner. Han var egnens naturlæge og viede hele sit voksne liv til at hjælpe mennesker i nød. Det endte med at koste ham 30 dage i Fjerritslev Arrest i 1928 for kvaksalveri, men da han blev løsladt blev der i hast arrangeret en folkefest hvor 4-5000 mennesker samledes for at hylde ham.

Kommer du forbi i sommerhalvåret fra 1. april til 31. oktober, kan det varmt anbefales at tage madpakken eller grillkødet med, ved parkeringskoordinaterne er der nemlig opført en træbygning med toiletter, ildsted, grill og terasse med udsigt over søerne. Der er siddeplads til ca. 80 mennesker indendørs, hvis det skulle regne. Huset er bygget af lærketræ fra Aktieplantagens egen produktion og det er åbent fra solopgang til solnedgang.

Hvis man parkerer ved parkeringskoordinaterne er turen rundt om søen og forbi cachen knap 1 kilometer lang.

Handicappede
Man kan ikke komme hele vejen rundt om søen i kørestol, fordi der er trapper. Men hvis man går/kører mod uret om søen fra parkeringskoordinatet kan man komme ret tæt på cachen i en terrængående kørestol.

In English

This cache is a part of a series to put focus on the new administrative divisions after the 2007 Municipal Reform. There are caches in all 98 new municipalities and in the five new regions. To find a region cache you have to find all municipality caches in that region. The region cache in Northern Jutland is called "Nordjylland - Danmark".

About Jammerbugt Muncipality

Jammerbugt Municipality consists of the old municipalities Aabybro, Brovst, Pandrup, and Fjerritslev. The municipality is inhabited by approximately 39,000 people and covers 212,000 acres. The municipality is in no place more than 12.5 miles wide. To the north we find the bay of Jammerbugten, to the east the municipalities of Hjørring, Brønderslev and Aalborg. To the west we have Thisted Municipality and to the south Limfjorden. Jammerbugt Municipality is mostly known for the shoreline of Skagerak and most people will be familiar with names such as Blokhus and Svinkløv. To the south we find Gjøl, known from the book "Fiskerne" by Hans Kirk and the Dam Trolls. But Jammerbugt Municipality also has a lot of wonderful nature to offer:

Fosdalen, with its healing water and the beautiful gorges and slopes.
Svinkløvene, a fantastic place around sunset.
Rødhus and Tranum, a great place to bathe, not too many people.
The dog forest in Hune, nice forest, where your dog can run free as much as it likes.
Trædestenene/the stepping stones, an overlooked place in Store Vildmose.
Ulvedybet and Gjøl Bjerg, a large bird reserve. At Gjøl Bjerg there are two wilderness huts, where the cache owners actually spent their wedding night.

About the cache

The cache itself is placed at Bratbjergsøerne, two lakes near Tranum. The area is owned by a private association, and thus it is not accessible at night.

The area is an old gravel pit, which has been made into a beautiful recreative area. Various trees have been planted and even some fruit trees and bushes.

At the south western part of the largest lake, a memorial is of Bratbjergmanden is found. His real name was Christian Jensen Mann, and he was out of a long line of wise men and women. He was a natural healer in the area and he dedicated his life to helping people in need. He had to spend 30 days in Fjerritslev Jail on the charges of quackery, but when he was released there was quickly improvised an event, where 4-5000 people gathered to cheer him.

If you visit the area in the Summer season from April 1 to October 31, it is warmly recommended to bring your lunch or meat for barbecuing, as a wooden cabin has been built at the parking coordinates, with toilets, fireplace, a barbecue and a terrace with a view of the lakes. It has a capacity of approximately 80 people indoors, should it rain. The house is built from larch timber from the plantations own woods, and is open from sunrise to sunset.

If you park at the parking coordinates, the walk around the lakes and past the cache is a little over half a mile.

Disabled
You can't take the whole trip around the lake, because of some stairs. But if you start walking/driving counterclockwise around the lake you can get pretty close to the cache if you have a solid wheelchair.
