This is a very special geocache made possible by an international exchange between Dutch geocacher Johny Cache and Idaho geocacher BadAndy.
Hidden at the Gateway to Yellowstone National Park, This cache is a perfect way to begin your trip through the park. Keep a keen eye out for wildlife and watch from a safe distance. Visitors do get injured every year trying to get that perfect closeup.
Expect to see Bison, Elk, and Eagles. Fox, Deer and all other forest critters may also make an appearance. Wolves also live here. With approximately 200 wolves in 19 packs, they are making a comeback in a big way.
The initial content of the Dutch Yellowstone Cache includes:
Feyenoord necklace (Feyenoord is the soccer team of Rotterdam)
Ajax keyring (Ajax is the soccer team of Amsterdam)
Heineken Beer bottle opener
Heineken Beer 'Blinking Bottle' (blinks when you receive a call on your cellular phone)
various windmill lapel pins
A miniature 'Delfts Blue' porcelain windmill
Various 'Delfts Blue' miniature wooden shoes
Dutch Euro coins
Two postcards, one showing a windmill, other downtown Amsterdam by night
Logbook, pencil, pencil sharpener, stash note
This cache is owned and stocked by Johny Cache from the Netherlands and hidden and maintained by BadAndy From Idaho. The American counterpart is called "Yogi's winter retreat". It isn't active yet, but will soon be placed somewhere in the Netherlands.
An international geocache exchange involves the exchange of a new, fully prepared geocache with a geocacher from a different country. The caches are filled with items unique to each cacher's individual locality. Once an exchange has occured, each geocacher would then have the other person's geocache to hide as their own. Both cachers' names will be listed in the 'hidden by' section.
The idea to exchange geocaches internationally was popularized in this thread on the geocaching.com forum. You might also like to see the Nordic thread One of the first cachers involved in a geocache exchange wrote an article on the topic in Today's Cacher. The article can be found here
We are planning on an ongoing exchange of trade items as we attempt to keep the caches stocked.

Johny Cache and BadAndy
There is a small parcel of private property near this cache. It is not nessesary to cross into the posted area.
Park at the Grizzly discovery lot and walk about 400 feet south towards the end of the road, keeping the posted fenceline on your left. When you reach the end of the pavement you'll see a Forest Service boundary marker. Everything south of this point is within the Gallatin National Forest.
