Geocache Description:

Located in a spot overlooking Grytviken and Shackleton's last resting place on South Georgia.

This cache has been placed in a somewhat unremarkable spot in an undeniably remarkable part of the world. This should be an easy cache to find once you get to Grytviken, and if there is little or no snow about. It could however be regarded as an extremely difficult cache if you happen to start your journey from the Weddell Sea and your ship's name is ‘Endurance’. Otherwise it has been placed a sufficient distance away from the local inhabitants, removing the only significant modern day obstacle to reaching it (excluding the Southern Ocean of course!).

My first cache. Planned and researched for a very long time. Thanks to Kate and Mark for assistance in finding a suitable spot, Chris for the clip-on Koala, and to Jenny for getting us all there. Thanks also to Annetta for allowing me to take so many weeks to ‘chase the chickens’ in the Southern Ocean.

FTF credit goes to Bouton
