Geocache Description:

New NANO cache in place from yesterday (Sept 14) afternoon! The Geocaching community is fantastic and I'm so pleased to get support in maintaining this old cache!

Good Luck and enjoy a rest in one of the lungs in a hectic city and

The cache had gone missing again - but THANKS to Fellow Geocacher A9tal from Norway on holiday in Brussles the cache is now back again!

March 19, 2016

Geocachers Pazifik from Austria and Greetdc from Belgium volunteered and promised help.
Pazifik planning a trip to Brussels would add a new log stip and even placed a completely new cache "box" in the location.

As I could not judge if the cache had gone missing, as I got reports of findings and clear messages it was still there I took the offer from GreetDC.
Being a local hunter Greetdc possibly can help me with the cache for maintenance. (as I once had GeJoCa).
I mailed a new log stip and a new cache "box" to be used in case it really get lost again in the future.

Now I have messages from both Pazifik and Greetdc saying it is in place. But it is even better!
There must now be two Brussels #1 to be found by geocache hunters!

The micro cache is located on a challenging place (for the lifetime of the cache, 5 gone missing already)<br />
so I propose hunters to go for it quickly!It does contain an information paper as well as the standard 'log book' BUT NO pencil.At a revisit by me on 2003 01 28 the content was changed as the container did hold a rather sticky and messy sweet.<br />
I replaced the container by a new one and added the coins that where there as well as a brand new pencil sharpener.<br />
Did also add another page to the now rather full logbook. I am very fasinated by the fact that it is still on it's location.<br />
A very dangerous location one would think.During May/June 2004 the cache went missing. But was replaced 2004 07 16 by help of Christian.During Sep 2005 the cache was missing again.<br />
As I like the cache a lot and once again got local support for a replacement I decided to let it live.<br />
Thanks to GeJoCa it is at it's location again.<br />
Good luck and enjoy some time on the spot for the cache!Lost again during spring 2006, but we are full of persistence, thanks again to GeJoCa,<br />
is't back from todag May 29:th again.<br />
New content with several Swedish 50 öre coins and some mini clothes-peg.Lost again during June 2007 - but thanks to GeJoCa who got a new one from Sweden<br />
it's on it's very unsafe location again.Lost again during spring 2012 - the cache has now 10 Years on it´s back! - but thanks to team Heyerdahl (from Norway ?) and GeJoCa in good cooperation it's back in it's very unsafe location again.The cache is in a dangerous location (for the cache)! Lost and gone again, in the end of July or beginning of August 2012.<br />
As it would be sad to take it down, I prepared a new one and was waiting for local support.<br />
But last weekend I got a mail from a fellow cacher in Sweden, Rhadium, who was going for a visit in Brussels.<br />
I sent him a brand new cache designed as the original from 2002.<br />
Today I got a SMS with the message - "Mission Accomplished".This world of cachers is really special! Thanks to Rhadium - Brussels FIRST cache is in it´s location again! 2014 June 26 I visited Brussels again and wanted to see the old cache location again. It looked very much the same as 12 years ago. I searched for the cache but could not find it. I was prepared for this and replaced it with a "new" old black wet-film container. Note! there is NO Pencil but a looong log book.<br />

Reports during the beginning off 2015 told me - log book full.
A request for HELP by other fellow cachers that intended to visit the cache for support - resulted in a greateful help by PnavE_81
I mailed a new logg strip, PnavE_81 printed and replaced the log book.
MANY THANKS

Greetings from Sweden and Sangsvan!<br />
