Cache number 1000 and our first bush FTF

The day started out rainy, but later the weather stabilized on the positive side and everything else also - sort of. All in all, the trip with mtbikeroz and RexTrex was a lot of fun, but sometimes also a bit exhausting.

Mtbikeroz had estimated a 28 km bike ride and a 3 km walk. Sounded quite reasonable to me and I was expecting to be home for lunch . He also mentioned "bush bashing", but I did not attach any significance to it. Well, it may have something to do with the German phrase "auf den Busch klopfen", I thought. How wrong I was I realized only when I was in the middle of it . Bush bashing means apparently bashing the bush until it provides a path for you. If it doesn't, you bash more and walk nevertheless. This all needs considerably time and energy and in between you have to bash the rocks as well. All in all, you walk/climb/crawl at a speed of around 600m/hr. Well, by reading the cache description, I could have known . Now I know, how Ludwig Leichhardt must have felt when exploring Australia .

In any case, it was a great experience and a magnificient place to reach. Definitely, the cache is worthy to be our #1000 cache. So thanks to Winglen for it and to mtbikeroz and RexTrex for the company.

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. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
