Logeinträge für Gassenhauer zum GST3
08. Januar 2005 alice hat eine Bemerkung geschrieben
Da der Cache seit fast einem Jahr nicht besucht wurde, habe ich heute die Cachebox eigesammelt. Sie ist in perfektem und trockenem Zustand, sogar die Streichhölzer, die drin lagen.
Schade, dass es im Einzugsgebiet von Marburg so wenige motivierte Cacher gibt...
[EN:] Archived since the cache received no visit since almost one year. What a pity that there are so few motivated caches in the area around Marburg.
27. September 2003 cezanne hat den Geocache gefunden
When I set out for this cache, I had planned to do only the first stages today before attending the event cache which will take place this afternoon in Marburg. Although some of the auxiliary stages are rather tricky when compared to typical auxiliary stages of multi-caches in urban areas, I was faster than expected and thus decided to head for the final cache as well.
Fortunately, the weather improved during my walk, at the beginning it was drizzling and I was already worried that I would have to continue my search in heavy rain as it had happened to me a few times in Copenhagen last month.
I will not mention details on the order in which I did the auxiliary stages as this might act as as spoiler. For the same reason, I do not mention which of the auxiliary stages werde easy for me and which were quite hard for me. At some of the auxiliary stages I had to look around quite a while to find the required digits. The GPS reception was not always that fine, but still ok for a urban setting.
The reception at the final location was exceptionally good today. The final coordinates turned out to be very exact. I found the final cache almost immediately, in a much shorter time than I required at some auxiliary stages. The cache box and its contents are in perfect condition, and are waiting for further finders.
It was a big surprise for me to be the first finder of this cache . Though I did arrive in Marburg already yesterday evening, I was too lazy to get up early and also expected that some local cachers would hunt for this cache immediately after the starting coordinates became known.
This cache is exceptionally well-done. It leads you to nice places of one the most wonderful cities in the world. Moreover, the calculations that have to be performed are of a way that they can easily done also by mathematicians without making mistakes and without having to use a pocket calculator (thanks Alpha ).
I also like the set-up of the cache. Unlike most caches with virtual intermediate stages I have done so far, it was not at all trivial to find the required information at the intermediate stages of this cache. It was great fun to find the numbers and digits while trying not to arise thes suspicion of the people around.
Thanks, Alice and Alpha for one of the nicest caches I have done so far.
