Geocache Description:

Hidden in Krokskogen at 545 meters above sea level, near the obscure and strangely named ridge of Hinghanghaug.

The cache is a military food container, secured with steel wire, a camo carabiner and velcro. I hung it from a small spruce 90 meters from the summit, near an open area with nice views. Make sure you also visit the nearby kjentmannspost at the summit, which has an interesting cairn and marks the border between Buskerud and Oppland.
Initial content besides logbook, inforsheet, pencils and sharpener:
Hong Kong postcard, Päronsoda CD, cybercrime DVD, a cool keychain and a not so cool one, a Bernhardese fear chaser, some lego, moose coins, moose droppings, a Nokia phone charger, a toy mobile phone, and other other items.
If you find a bluetooth handsfree in the cache,it is not really intended as a trading item. I lost it during my trip and I'd really love to get it back :)
The Hung cache is the starting point from my brand new red Jeep TB, which I believe is the first red one in Norway.

Old maps will tell you that this ridge used to be called Saueskallen. It was renamed in the 1960s in honor of Lee Hing Hang, a cook who, fleeing the cultural revolution, moved from Dunhuang, China, to Jevnaker, where she founded a Chinese restaurant. A local man named Haug who worked as a proofreader at Statens Kartverk, quickly fell in love with Hing Hang, and renamed the place to impress her. They subsequently married and she took his family name in addition to her own.

Warning: There's lots of Hinghang-sau up here. Beware of dung. Sometimes there's cattle, so beware of bullshit, too.
