Geocache Description:

Situated on a hill top, on private land, which is a well known 4x4 route in an area just north of the Vaal River, known as The Dome. It is approximately 1550 metres above sea level. The location will be reached by exiting the vehicle and scrambling to the top of a hill.

The cache is a 2 litre ice cream container with the 4x4 trail's sticker and our club stickers on it, as well as the club's web site and the web sites address. The container contains a log book, a pencil (plse someone take a sharpener for the cache), 2 toy 4x4's, 2 african style greeting cards and 5 club stickers. Will the person who finds it replace the toys and cards with whatever, but only take 1 sticker!

The container is hidden below a pile of rocks to protect it from weather and wild animals (baboons especially). The hunter will have to scramble up 'one of the big 5' hills (clue)and search for the cache on top. The view from the top is stunning and overlooks the area which is said to be created when Thor dropped his hammer from the heavens.

This cache is unfortunately on private land (4x4 trail), so there is an entry fee involved. There is camping facilities with hot water, showers and ablutions. However it is in the bush.

Our 4x4 club is hoping that this will be the first of many that we start hiding, and hope that other 4x4 enthusiasts will follow suite.

Photos to follow this week.

Happy searching and 4x4-ing!
