It has become a tradition that we make a geocaching trip to Germany in the middle of October every year. This year we headed for Niedersachsen and after spending a night in Bergen we continued to Bergen an der Dumme.
Today it was time for us to head back towards Denmark. We decided to spend some time in Hamburg, and this cache was our main goal. The cache had been recommended to us by other Danish geocachers and the number of favorite points also indicated, that this would be something special. Therefore we decided to make it our find no. 25.000! However, we had to struggle quite a bit, before we succeeded!!! First of all we made the same mistake as many other visitors of not reading the first task thoroughly enough. Therefore we ended up in the wrong place and had to start over.
Our second calculation of WP2 was much better and we quickly spotted the GC-Logo. However, the meaning of Z was a mystery to us, and we had no idea how to proceed. We started to fear that the cache (or rather the waypoint) had been muggled. We therefore decided to call a friend and ask what we were looking for at WP2, but our phone was in our car, which was parked quite a bit away. The mood while walking to the car was very bad. We didn't have a Plan B for our cache anniversary and really didn't want it to become a random film canister with a wet log book!!! Our friend on the phone saw only two possible explanations for our problems: Either the waypoint had been muggled or another team might be in action. While waking back to the waypoint we really hoped for explanation no. 2!!! And luckily, when we arrived we immediately understood the meaning of Z and were able to proceed to the extraordinary cache!
After signing the log book we returned to WP2 where we found two other geocaching teams, who were exactly as lost as we had been a bit earlier! This cache certainly is popular!!!
We are extremely happy that we succeeded in making this memorable cache an anniversary for us! Obviously it will be awarded a favorite point.
Thanks for the cache and greetings from Denmark!
