PlanetEarth: Yesterday I checked the cache and the situation around:
a) The cache was very easy to reach. Not a single fence to climb over, no steep pathes... (We used a map (was recommended in the cache description) and followed the tarmac road to N 48° 02.864´ E 016° 01.201´ and for the last 100 m, we went down a path over grassland to the Cache.) Terrain rating: max. 2 - 2.5 stars...
b) The hiding place is definitely inside a water protection area. All roads and pathes leading to it have a sign "Water protection area, entry forbidden". In my opinion this doesn't make sense because there are lots of cows on the meadows around, we saw an empty petrol can inside the area and a guide book from the local authority mentiones the old tree as a special sight. However, I have to accept this...
c) The cache itself was in good condition.
According to b) I decided to archive this cache.
Thx to all who searched for the cache.
Happy caching, PlanetEarth & Team
