2 Cotas: Ok.

Gone for ever!
O lugar merecia uma visita e valia a pena fazer a pequena viagem até lá.
A manutenção era um bocado puxada e havia alguma dificulade em ter que ir lá, religiosamente, todos os meses para uma visita de seis em seis.

Fica como a primeira cache nocturna. Quem fez, fez! Quem não fez, fizesse! Quem tentou... A todos obrigada.

Mas não se preocupem, as boas ideias renascem sempre das cinzas.

Ok, lets maintain the focus here…

The purpose of this cache is to show a, normally “unseen” view.

Every one of us, travel in and out of its habitual “every day” place without looking at it. Especially at night. If it’s a beautiful city, at night it could have a great look.

Of course if you could find something at night, common sense tells you that at day light it’s easier. So I’ve done my best to conceal it. You could find it at day light, but you’re on you’re own. The help I provide only works at night and the view deserves to let the TV off to go there.

Also the place isn't so nice in the day light and couldn't deserve the bother of going there, so, at night, you could ignore it and focus in the view...<\p>

At "groud zero" you will find a flat area surrounded by bushes and trees. Just off the bushes there is a cliff, a dangerous one. You don’t need to pass the bushes. So stay clear of the edge. The GPS signal is clear and steady and it points to the centre of the area, some 100 mts above sea level. There you have some 30, (or 300?), square mts to find the conteiner. Remember you are looking for a cache by night light. The

There are several CITO needed paths to there. One of those it's easy to a 4x4 car every day of the year. It seems to be closed recently, but it's a short walk and there is a path, the car path, ;).

To go to the place you will need to pass near some residential areas and park in the vicinity of another one. Try not to upset those that sleep. There is no news about any kind of “human” danger in the area, but remember that at night people tend to get more worried about “unnatural” activities. Finally take the usual and normal precautions you take in your everyday life. Do not leave valuables showing inside your car, park it correctly and protect your goods with exactly the same care that you use at day light.

1st - The difficulty rating is the official. But in fact it does not reflect the real difficulty. My idea is more 4 or 4,5 to the dificulty. Let me put it in other words: the first team took 4,5 hours and are composed of 3 geocachers. The second team, 5 geocachers, spend 2,5 hours. The thirth did not find it after a couple of hours. How do I turn that in to a rating?

2nd - Don’t flood the place with light. If you do, what’s the need to go there at night? Be gentle.

3th - High tech light emitting diodes torches are too much for it. Try a simple incandescent one. Or two. Or more…

For that cache's log, besides finding it, you need to upload at least a photo. Any kind, a larger view or a precise spot.

You will need to carry there a pencil and a small tool. But any "everyday", "any pocket", "don't mind", "low-tech" one will do.

A big tkx to Pedro “Zoom_bee” Jardim. Without is help that … “thing“… couldn’t be possible.


Don’t go alone, don't take risks, don't trespass the bushes and take lights, lots of lights. (...and a tripod to your camera...)
