Nemesis: Oh well, as they say, a good location can become a bad one. Thanks guys for checking on my cache, but the time has come to archive it. I am heading up north in the next few days. If I get a chance I will visit the remains of the cache and pay my respects (I may replace it too). Cheers, Donovan.

Geocache Description:

Location: About 15 km north-east of Mount Hutt, Canterbury, New Zealand.

The stash is above ground, but invisible from 10 m.
The terrain slightly obstructed.

Initial Cache Contents:

? A tin of tomato paste
? A square 4-pin connector for eTrex/eMap (use it to make your own data cable; see Pfranc and use these instructions)
? An AA map of Napier (nb., AA means New Zealand Automobile Association)
? A Chinese 1 Yuan note (with plenty of Chinese dirt still clinging to it)


The stash (Accuracy You may get there via either Rangiora or Geraldine on State Highway 72 or even by the way of Asburton and State Highway 77. State Highway 72 is a great way of bypassing the heavy traffic through Christchurch on State Highway 1. Oh, don?t forget to visit the Rakaia George (S 43°31.140' E 171°39.576' Elevation 276 m), about 12 km to the west of the stash, it?s quite spectacular (if not a bit too touristy :().
