Happy Hunting!!

Der Cache ist außerdem sehr gut mit meinen Caches "Tauchen" - GC18WAM, "Felsenblick" - GC18W1T, "Willersdorfer Schlucht" - GCXXEJ und "Dreiländereck" - GCXXED, vor Allem aber mit meinem zweiten Kienberg-Cache "Das Geheimnis des Kienberg-Kreuzes" - GC6FXD4 kombinierbar.

An dieser Stelle noch einmal ein Dankeschön an den früheren Owner "BalkanSabranje" für die Idee und Umsetzung dieses wunderschönen Caches.
