After waiting in the Vasco da Gama shopping centre about one hour as to be able to remove the car, such were the lines of cars trying desperately to get out, we decided to relax, hunting down this cache.
There weren't many people in the park at that time, as the day approached its end. Some passed by us while we searched for the container.
Suddenly, a group, larger than all the others, approached us, showing no intentions of stopping or changing their route.
I hid the GPSr in my pants and grabbed my pocket knife; I had to defend Tehanu, no matter what - this is a complete lie, I can easily defend myself from the dangers Mightyreek finds everywhere (Tehanu writing).
Then, the leading member of the group spoke to us:
Have you looked under the stones? We think it's under the stones!
It was now clear that they were fellow Geocachers. Were they teasing us? Were they the owners or just geocachers who'd already found the cache? Were they tired of us looking around so suspiciously and not finding anything?
It turns out that they were the geosuchs and were also looking for the cache! It was a completely new experience to us; to know other Geocachers and have the pleasure to hunt with them.
The company made the hunt a lot funnier. We were expecting a really easy to find cache, according to the logs on the website, but what took most of the people a few minutes took us (a half-dozen people and a dog) a long time to find. I (Tehanu) believe that the only reason we didn't give up was because of looking bad for the other group...
In the end it was the geosuchs leader who found the cache and then we logged it together.
The logbook is completely full and is starting to fall apart - a part of it almost desintegrated itself on Tehanu's hands. We managed to find the back of two pages where we logged in.
I sharpened the pencil and Tehanu managed a present to leave: a hair-band, which we used to keep the logbook together.
Geosuchs left a coin and took the balloon, because it no longer fitted inside the container.
The cache is in a place so obvious that it couldn’t be there…
It’s impossible, isn’t it?
