Wednesday, May 16, 2018Kenya

Wow, This was quite the geocache. I went with my friend Deb who introduced me to this awesome activity. She came up to visit me and suggested to find it and I was very excited to go looking for it. Closest geocache in my area. Now we went in the rainy season and its been raining like never before in Kenya but we hoped the weather will be favorable for us to get there. We started our journey on the B4 Nakuru - Sigor rd heading towards Mogotio and just before the town we turned right and followed the road leading to the left. We passed the shops and kept going quite a distance until you reach your find a red sign saying no entry on the right and electric fence ahead. We turned right and kept going straight until you get to a bridge. Now we could not get to the bridge by car because the road was waterlogged around the blue gum trees plus we came with a very low car. They have started repairing it but had not yet finished, so we took the rest of the journey by foot. A lot of the plantation was waterlogged.

We got to the small bridge and kept going. There is a guard house ahead on the left with a guard. We explained what we were looking for and they allowed us to go searching for it. We finally made it to the dam and started heading in the direction while walking on top of the canal wall because the whole place was waterlogged. Just when we got so close the cache our journey was interrupted by water, it had crossed over both canal walls. I tried to see if we could pass through barefoot but the water got deep and very slippery, I would like to say that we found it. See photos for evidence. If you go in the rainy season, please give yourself more than 2 hours. It took us close to 4 hours to the cache including traveling to it and we started our journey around 30 min away.

TFTC, such a unique experience finding a cache in a sisal farm.

infoA virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location. Depending on the cache "hider," a virtual cache could be to answer a question about a location, an interesting spot, a task, etc. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit.

Because of the nature of these geocaches, you must actually visit the location and acquire the coordinates there before you can post. In addition, although many locations are interesting, a virtual cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit.

Virtuals are now considered waymarks on Waymarking.com.
