Found it Torgut found Milicov-Cache

Wednesday, October 24, 2007Hlavni mesto Praha, Czech Republic

From all the caches I found so far in Prague, this one goes directly to the top. As I started to walk, from Hadje metro station, I couldn't imagine that only 10 minutes from there I was about to find an enchanted forrest. The task didn't started the better way though. Due to the building works my way to the spot was cutted. I had to walk around and wasn't sure that I could actually get there from this sector. So it took me longer that it should and a feeling of uncertainty rose in my mind.

After a while walking in asphalt paths in NW side of the woods I decided to take the risk and explore what looked to me as a faint path into the forrest. That's when the joy started!!

What an amazing atmosphere! The day was cloudy and dark. The woods were painted in fall colors. Brown, golden leaves were covering the floor. Even the asphalt trails were completely covered by this "paint". And so my imagination flew... I could see Hurons indians jumping out of nowhere and pursuing me. I thought about TV Series that I watched as a kid, a long time ago and how this landscape was like those which kept my childish imagination. You see, in my home country there are no such woods. Perhaps the majority of you, czech geocachers fellows, would fancy miles and miles of beach, in golden sand, and 6 months a year of sunny and warm days. That's boring to me. People tend to seek what's not usual to them. That's why these woods fascinates me so much. And probably because of light conditions this was the one I liked the most from all I visited in Prague area.

All the way to the cache spot was like this: marvellous, beautiful, savage nature. In the end, after walking for 30 minutes and not spoting a live soul, I had to find a guy just a few meters from the cache. So I had to wait. When finally had the conditions to seek for the container found it after a few seconds. Accurate coordinates. Don't understand the rating in this cache. It's very easy to found but terrain shouldn't be 1 star stroll as it's not acessible by wheelchair and it involves a certain stroll.

Thanks a lot for this cache which provided me such an incredible pleasure and greetings from Portugal!

P.S. - Big frustration: I wasn't carrying a photo cam. But I'm not sure if such an atmospeher could be captured in pictures. I will try to get back to the local in a similiar day though.

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.
