Geocache Description:

Since first Bear Grylls geocache got positive response, I decided to hide similar one.
Ker je bil prvi Bear Grylls deležen pozitivnih odzivov sem postavil podobnega.

First part adventure is about the same as original Grill Bears, but its gonna be "same,same but diffrend"(just like the show). You will be starting from Restaurant Iški Vintgar to confluence of Zala and Iška. But there comes a TWIST: you head south-west into Zala canyon.
Just like first Bear cache: you are going to have to be fast and smart to survive, jumping over rocks, stumps and other things that come on your way. Best ways to handle it are supplies or survival skills. Plenty water around, dont wory about it....but on a hot summer day, I'd suggest beer(energy). As far as food goes: anything you buy at local groceries will do, but if you lost your backpack you better keep your eyes open. Potential prey is all around you, but if you cant catch any chamois, rabbit, squirl or fish with primitive methods(bow, knife,trap) and tech methods(rifle, fishing kit) fail too, you will have to go for stuff from your backpack for sure(getting back to wherever you left it). Furthermore acient army called Partisans were regulars in theese woods in 1940ies, so with some luck you will even encounter some leftower apple trees(fruit is high in carbohydrates, antioxidants and vitamin C) and some perfectly restored camping grounds. They will serve you good if you came in right season or if you decide to stay over night and find both Bear caches.
As you progress, you will face many obstacles: Zala is somewhat steeper to Iška and therefore you will face...yep, you guessed it: waterfalls. As Bear knows, there are direct and sometimes dangerous ways to overcome all of the obstacles. There is also "filming crew" way, but I guess "straight on" looks and feels much much better. You must be careful at all times...if you fail miserably even your film crew cant help you+I bet it will be a strugle to call for help once you realise your mobile has no signal. Once you reach cache, you can follow tiny creek to safety of "probably inhabited Rakitna platau" or simply return via confluence.

There might be more direct approaches to this cache, but due to nature of this terrain EXTREME CAUTION is needed. Cache is the best troughout summer and temperatures above 20°C.
