The last day of the event has come around very fast. Actually, it's not even a full day, we just have breakfast together after which everyone leaves. We have started packing up early and enjoy another breakfast together to the full. We say goodbye to everyone, have a last look around and take a few pictures of the event's 'logbook'.

Then it's time to climb into the camper and start the rest of our trip. We're planning to go south and, as this is our geocaching trip, pick up a cache each in France, Luxembourg and Belgium, because we would like to get a virtual souvenir from each country. I already have one from France, but Patricia and Dianne don't.
The route leads us from Nierstein, near Frankfurt via Saarburg to Thionville in France. Patricia and I are quite relaxed geocachers, but Dianne is a 'number cruncher' who wants to stop a few times to pick up a cache along the route. This is the first one:
Heidenfahrt Nord (A60)
Next follows a rather interesting one. It's also near a fuel station, but we have to walk a scenic pathway through a forest, not too far from the road. The cache container is a surprise and rather tricky, but Patricia knows the tricks of the trade and spots it first:
DJs ABC - Raststätte Hunsrück Ost
|A well-camouflaged container. Tricky!|
|As we 'don't speak German' we ignore this sign of course... ;-)|
Was ist eigentlich Metamorphosegestein?
Unfortunately it's raining on and off and we can't keep it dry even under the awning of the camper. Later it clears up again and I go for a short walk to take some pictures.
