Found it DuneBuddy found Rift Valley

Sunday, February 15, 2015Kenya

We made a special trip to Nakuru from Ethiopia to in part find this oldest Virtual. Muggle friends of ours accompanied us on the journey from Nairobi and were nice enough to drive us there and back. The hardest part of the trip was figuring out which road was the B4. Of course our wives identified the correct road but we ignored them and decided it was another road that turned out to be the B5. After an hour we finally got on the correct road.

I studied Google Earth to map out what I thought was the best route (approaching on the road west of the cache and going to the east-west road that crosses the small river then turning south and driving to the point 350 meters east of the cache.) Being the dry season we did not have a problem with mud, but stirred up alot of red dust, even when walking the last bit from the road to the GZ. Alas, an irrigation ditch has been cut through the area and the tree has been felled. But the stump survives. I took a photo of my GPSr at the convergence and another at the stump.

I enjoyed finding this piece of Geocaching history, but my friends were not convinced the four hour round trip journey from Lake Nakuru was worth it. TFTC

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.
