OUR FIND #1000
Since more than three weeks we pepare our 1000th find. Three weeks ago we have had only 700 finds but we wanted to celebrate the 1000th cache during out Scotland holiday. So we made every powertrail and cache series with many boxes in our area within the last weeks.
But the 1000th should be a real special and not an easy one. And it was a special cache!
7.8 km, 600 m altitude difference, 3 hours up, 1:30 down. Our first two digit cache and our 1000th find. Top weather, a bit sunny, but not too much, ideal temperatures, no rain, not much wind and stunning view the whole day. These were the facts of our hike today.
Never before we made such a hike. Never before we climbed such a steep mountain. Though you don't need special mountaineer equipment, it's not an easy Sunday afternoon walk. On our way up we decided to go the longer but easier way. Downhill we chose the direct way. The way down was very adventurous, because the lower we came the steeper became the hill and the more difficult the terrain.
It was a great fun to log this cache and to read the absolutely first geocache log in UK ever - at least we guess it was the first.
But we would appreciate it very much if the owner modified the D/T rating. It was definitely the hardest T1 we ever did - and one of the easiest D5.
So much fun with so much personal success is worth a favourite point.
