Found it...

Here we had an Cache Adventure that we never forget!!!

We parked our car at the given Coordinates and took the Track that I lowded from the Cachedescription.

So long so good, we arrived at WP1 where everything was clear, and so we followed the GPS to Station 2.

On The Way we had fantastic view´s down to Platjada de Coll des Baix and a little bit more high over The Bay of Alcudia.
Arrived at the Top of the Mountain we checked the 2 houses and calculated the Final Coors. Then we goes on the Triangulation Point to take some Pictures and so we went on in direction to the Cache.

Fast found with the Spoilerpic, signed up the Logbook, and dropped the TB. Cache again hidden at his Place and suddenly i thought to hear a person that is shouting for help.

In the first Moment i was not sure because it was very Windy at this day. I asked Christiane if she heard it too. And the we heard it again together but we could not see any one. We went again up to The Top to have a better overview, again on the Top we looked with the binocular and saw a Man who was beckoning with his Arms.
But there was still two other Persons that was near by him. So we took the decision to go down there to see what happend.

Arrived at the Person we saw a German Tourist that was completly down. He told us that he started his walked from Port de Alcudia at 11:00 in the Morning, now it was 18:00 in the Afternoon. He had nothing to drink and no food by the Way.
We gave him to drink (he drinked 2 Liters in 5 Min.) and something to eat. So he told us that he has lost the Way and that he called the Police. And if we could bring him down in the Valley. So we give him our Walking Sticks because he could´nt go in a straight Line.

We tryed to take the same Way down than we came up, because we knowed this Way and we had the GPS track from it. Suddenly the Phone from the Man Rings, and he was talking that we had found him and we will bring him from the Mountain, and he tried to explain that Person where we are. I asked that I can talk to the one at the Phone because he was only talking "strange" thinks. He gave me the Phone and i asked who is at the other End.
A Women told me that she is from the Guardia Civil Dep. Mountain Rescue, and that they send mountain Rangers out to find him but they did not find him, so they tryed to located his Mobile Phone but that worked not too.

I asked her If i can give her our GPS Coordinations, but she meaned for this we must have a GPS :-)
"I have one"!!!
Oh, please give me your Coordinations... one Moment, she was talking to another Man, and then she said that in 10 Min. the Rangers will arrive at us.

As then the ranger arrived they meaned that we have to hurry up because in 30 Min. it will be dark. No Porblem we have Headlamps in our Backpack.
They looked a little bit distracted as would they say" What made you with all this things here on the Mountain" But we told them nothing that we are Geocacher and that is our "normal" equippement
On the Way down we meet 4 other Mountain Rangers that was on the way to us.

So we arrived, 6 Mountain Rangers, the Tourist and us, at 19:30 at WP 1, where his Wife was waiting with 2 Policemanand 2 Man from the Fire Rescue.

This Cache we will never forget!!!

We drived home to Port de Soller at 20:00

At this Place we will thank the Bomberos and Mountain Rangers from Inca, they drove us back to our car, and the Man who built the Burger King in Port Soller, because when we arrived there the Hotel Kitchen was closed.

infoA multi-cache ("multiple") involves two or more locations, the final location being a physical container. There are many variations, but most multi-caches have a hint to find the second cache, and the second cache has hints to the third, and so on. An offset cache (where you go to a location and get hints to the actual cache) is considered a multi-cache.
