As we finally had a dry day today it was time to go out on the bike again. Dry, but overcast, and the watery sun was trying to break through, but couldn't quite make it. I took both my car navigator and the geocaching GPS to go in search of caches as well as a map, but it pays to have a good look on the map at home first to orientate yourself. In particular when you're not looking with a buddy and find yourself in unfamiliar places. On the other hand, it's handy to have a map with you as well, to throw muggles off... ;-)
Duits lijntje - Liempde - Duits treintje NpfJ
NpfJ (7) Karthuizerhoeve
On the way to Boxtel was another cache hidden and since I didn't want to search for a particular cache in the series Duits Lijntje, I decided to ride to Boxtel instead. The other cache was hidden near a bridge, but at this time of the year the ground is quite damp (if not downright wet and muddy, like it was in France last year) so I wanted to steer away from the water.
This cache was hidden near a hoeve. Hoeve is the old fashioned word for farm, and as with the other caches, there was a story connected to the farm. I was lucky to find everything in place, because in the past the white sculpture had been removed, which wrecked havoc with the cache, and later replaced. However, I think they must be happy with the current spot. Easy find again. So far, in the Netherlands, I find the hints and pictures are quite clear and there is not always a need to use the GPS to find the actual GZ.
When I will post a next find? I have no idea. The forecast is for rain till at least the end of the week...
