Found this cache amongst friends on a weekend escape to Algarve!
This was the fifth one and a hell of a story!
First of all, the cache is more than 15m away from the GZ. We don't know if it is here since the beginning, so we did not put it where our GPS pointed the GZ. It's in the same place.
The [correct] coordinates with 3m error are:
N37 05.035 W8 02.003

Now, the story...
We [Myself, my girlfriend Mushi, MRita, Peter_FCUL & Stardust] arrived to Algarve and went directly to Almancil, where Peter knows a very good chinese gourmet restaurant!
When we finally finished our dinner, we found this very close cache, in this garden, so, "here we go"!
...
More than 30m after our arrival, we still didn't find the damned one. It should be something like 1am? 5 silly geocachers with 3 ultra-powered-maglites and a "almost DNF".
Then they arrived... Them, the police. Them, the police with pistols and shotguns. The shotgun ones surrounded us, while the other two came to us, asking if we needed help.
"Hi, Mr. Officer, we're seeking for a treasure, it's a game, with GPS... "
At first, I do really think they didn't believe us. But, then, MRita send Prodrive a sms, he called back [thanks mate, without you, that was really getting ugly... ], we found the damned cache [the officers helped us, believe it or not!] and... uff, logged, shook hands and left.
This was a very short version of what happened... .
Pay attention to that garden at night, some "not very pleasant muggles" use to come by.
If the GNR appears again, they will know what you'll be doing!

GREAT CACHE, after all!

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.
