Foi uma grande aventura encontrar esta cache, cheguei cedo ao Monte Brasil.
Os outros membros do Team Recanto estavam num sono profundo e acabaram por ficar em casa.
Chegado ao local estaciono a viatura Geo pego na Geo Pack e faço-me ao trilho, 10 minutos feitos no trilho, aparace um Unimog militar a apitar e pára ao meu lado, cumprimento o soldado condutor e este me diz, que o trilho está fechado porque passa ao lado da carreira de tiro que está sendo utilizado pelo clube de tiro da ilha. O trilho estará aberto só à tarde diz ele.
Lá regressei à viatura Geo e fui dar um longo passeio.
À uma da tarde estava de regresso e com o bom tempo a ajudar foi rápido fazer o trilho e chegar à cache.
Desconhecia a zona do Forte da Quebrada, tem uma vista para o Monte Brasil lindíssima.
A cache está muito bem preparada, cheia de coisas boas e bastante bem escondida.
Muitos parabéns ao TeamManRife por esta cache num mágnifico local da nossa ilha.
Foi um domingo bem passado, obrigado.

It was a great adventure finding this cache, I arrived early in the morning at Monte Brazil.
The other members of Team Recanto were fast asleep and ended up staying at home.
I parked the Geo vehicle grabbed my Geo Pack and started the trail, 10 minutes on the trail, a military Unimog appeared and stopped beside me, I greeted the driver, he tells me that the trail is closed because it´s next to the target range that is being used by the Island shooting club. The trail will only open in the afternoon he says.
I returned to the Geo vehicle and went for a long ride.
At 1:00 p.m. I was back and with the good weather, it was easy to complete the trail and find the cache.
I didn’t know the Quebrada Fort area, It has a great view of Monte Brasil.
The cache was well prepared and full of goodies, it was very well hidden.
Congratulations to TeamManRife for this cache in a wonderful setting of our Island.
It was a Sunday well spent, thank you.

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.
