Geocache Description:

[DK): En let drive-by nær Haurvig.

[ENG]: An easy drive-by near Haurvig.


DANISH:

Nær Abelines Gård (som er et museum) ligger Haurvig Redningsstation.

Tænk dig hvordan det var at skulle trække både op over klitterne. Når museumet er åbent kan man se den gamle redningsbåd.

Eet af de andre redningshuse har huset raketudstyr, som blev brugt til at sende raketter med en line ud til et strandet skib. Ud for Abelines gård redede man i 1894 barken "Elisabeth Rickmers".

Mange spørger hvorfor huset ikke ligger tæt på stranden, så er svaret sikkert at det var vigtigere at det lå tæt ved vejen og de heste der kunne trække båden eksempelvis 10km mod syd. Det er trods alt lettere end at ro den i stomvejr.

Det er en Ammo-box, så bring store bytteting. Det er ingen fejl, at mange af de gamle logs ligger i cachen.

ENGLISH:

Near the museum Abelines gård is the "life-saving station", where the life boat was situated in old days.

Many have asked why it is not placed near the beach, and I think the answer is that it should be close to the horses in Abelines gaard. It is afterall easier to pull a cart 10km than rowing it in stormy conditions. Perhaps the peoplae at the museum knows more.

The box is an ammo-box, so bring large items. This is one of the most found caches in Denmrk, with 2200+ found, so the stash contains a lot of the old log books, this is not an error.
