I have no idea if the cache is going to last. As soon as we reached the area of ground zero, three boys popped out of the bushes. I have no idea what they were doing, where they were heading and why they were here, but they were. Limiting our search to the extremes. We decided to just sit it out, but like real children they had a lot more time than we did. So careful we tried to look around the area. Inge played decoy, as I walked around a bit. Every time I made a move all eyes were on me however. And since the spoiler picture is "not entirely accurate", it was pure dumb luck I noticed a small pile of stones with something underneath. Ok. That's one. Now I need to get a hold of it. I pretend pictures, no way. They will not look away. I pretend tying shoelaces, but the ledge is just too low to disappear behind. I cough a bit, I laugh a bit and presto. Cache is t outer pocket. We sit where we are, still playing the waiting game. They move around. Like they have absolutely nothing else to do. Somehow I manage to get the log out of the bottle and sign. Paper is replaced and that's where we are now. I write this log with cache in my trousers, looking at 3 boys who are obviously bored to death. They pick up everything. Stones, bottle caps, paper, it doesn't matter. They pick it up and throw it over the edge. I dread the moment I have to go down when they are still above me... I don't wear safety helmet...
(later) we made it down safely. The boys are still up on the mountain while we descend. I hope we were able to replace the cache without them being seen, but we are unsure if the cache remains unnoticed.
All in all. A 2 hour walk which included 40 minute wait for some <beep>
