Da es schon dunkel geworden war, hatte ich hier heute etwas Mühe, die
Dose zu finden, zumal ich auch nicht mit der Taschenlampe in dieser
Gegend hantieren wollte.
So hat die Suche doch etwas länger gedauert, aber irgendwann hatte ich das im hint beschriebene Objekt doch gefunden und mit ein wenig Wühlen im Dunkeln, war dann auch der Cache gefunden.
Vielen Dank fürs Verstecken,

lange halb gelöst im Stapel. In der Vorbereitung auf den heutigen Bummel
durch Bad Nauheim haben wir dann die letzten Lücken gefüllt und konnten
uns so heute auf die Suche begeben. Unterwegs sind wir vielen der nun
bekannten Namen wieder begegnet, sehr schöne Idee !
Danke für den Cache !
