Geocache Description:

"Høje Sandbjerg"

Dansk:

Et af de smukkeste udsigtspunkter i Nordsjælland er Høje Sandbjerg.

 

Jeg kom her ofte - på cykel - da mine børn var små for snart 30 år siden, og faktisk var vi lidt på forkant med geocaching, for jeg husker at vi gemte en 25-øre ved rødderne af det træ, du ser på billedet, for så at prøve at finde den igen, når vi kom igen næste år.

Jeg citerer lidt fra kilder på internettet:

"Høje Sandbjerg er det højeste punkt i området. Fra toppen af den 85 meter høje bakke er der i klart vejr en storslået udsigt. Mod øst kan man se Ven og den skånske kyst. Mod syd kan man i det fjerne se hen over Københavns tårne og spir - helt til Ferringhøjhuset i Ørestaden. Københavns Amt har givet tilskud til træfældninger, der har skabt udsigtskilerne.

Stenen er en trigonometrisk station - et målepunkt for den landsdækkende opmåling af Danmark i midten af 1800-tallet.

Høje Sandbjerg er en del af Akademisk Skytteforenings ejendom. Foreningen fik i 1916 grunden foræret af frk. Henriette Barfred-Pedersen på den betingelse, at Høje Sandbjergs top altid skulle være frit tilgængelig for besøgende."

Tak for det, siger vi.

GPS modtageforholdene er ypperlige her højt oppe over landskabet. Da jeg lagde cachen modtog jeg på 8 kanaler på min Garmin.

Cachen er en gennemsigtig beholder på 1 liters penge. Jeg har som et forsøg ikke lagt den i en plasticpose. Den skulle være helt tæt.

English:

You'll find one of the most beautiful views in Northern Zealand at Høje Sandbjerg.

When my children were small - almost 30 years ago - I came here quite often - on bike, and actually we were a bit ahead of our time when we placed a 25-øre coin at the root of the tree you see at the first picture. The idea was to try and find the coin when we came back the next year.

I quote from the Internet:

"Høje Sandbjerg is the highest point in this area. From the top of the hill, 85 meters above the sea, there's a magnificent view when the weather is fine. To the east you may see Ven and the coastline of Scania. To the south one can see past the towers and spires of Copenhagen - even to the Ferring building in Ørestaden at Amager. The county of Copenhagen has contributed to the cut downs of trees, which has created the views.

The stone is a trigonometric station - a point for the measuring of Denmark, which took place in mid-1800.

Høje Sandbjerg is now part of the property of Akademisk Skytteforening. This society received it as a gift in 1916 from Miss Henriette Barfred-Pedersen, on the condition that the top of Høje Sandbjerg would always be open for visitors."

Thank you, I may add.

Receiving the GPS signals are extraordinary fine on this top. When I placed the cache I noticed that I received 8 channels on my Garmin. The cache is in a transparent box, the size is about 1 litre. As a test I've not put it in a plastic bag. The box should be water- and air-tight.
