Found it TheGreenTool found Europe's First

Sunday, September 6, 2015Leinster, Ireland

Our main vacation leaded us this year to England's Lake District, Northern Ireland, Ireland and Wales. We achieved some great milestones for our geocaching statistics. Yes, we are statistic geocachers. And we really enjoy this.

Our achievements:

  • We found our 5000th geocache, as planned since months, in Ireland. It was the beautiful GC5VXC7 Poison Glen Bridge.
  • Ireland is our 25th geocaching country.
  • We found "Europe's First" geocache GC43.
  • We completed the Diamond Badge for United Kingdom (found caches in all UK regions).
  • We got a Diamond Badge for Ireland (found caches in alle Irish provinces).
  • We placed our first Irish cache in Beara. It's an traditional which will be maintained by a local guy. And it's a really cool location: Dursey Island, which only can be reached by Ireland's only cable car. The cache GC61ZYZ is still in the reviewer's queue. http://coord.info/GC61ZYZ

Now some words about this cache:

There it is. Europe's First Geocache. When we approched the cache we could see other cachers who already checked what they had found. But our first way up the hill was the wrong. So we returned to the Cliff Walk and tried it again. This path was the correct one and we met the German couple from Nothern Rhine-Westphalia at GZ.

Keeping this historic cache alive is worth a favorite point of course.

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book.
