I found the Cache on a sunny afternoon on my way to Aachen. I enjoyed the walk on the river.


Greetings from Trier

Das war ein schöner Einstieg in das Cache-Tripel hier. Ich kannte die Gegend nur vom Namen her und hatte keine Ahnung, dass es hier so ein schönes Tal gibt. Das finden wohl andere auch. Entsprechend schwierig war die Bergung des Cache in Sichtweite der Rasthütte und unter fast ständiger Beobachtung. Wir waren aber zu fünft und vier von uns dienten dann als Sichtschutz ;-). Danke für das mir bisher unbekannte, schöne Ausflugziel!

Walked (and drove) a long sunny day through the beautiful landscape "Hohe Venn".
That is a beautiful river. And TB NEMO will follow me now to another place with enough water...

What a wonderful valley! Thanks to Captain Cook for this Cache!
Ein wunderschönes, wild-romantisches Tal, in dem wir seit vielen Jahren nicht mehr gewandert bin. Den Cache fanden wir in zwei Minuten - doch um ihn zu heben, mussten wir 20 Minuten warten, weil pausenlos Wanderer in der Hütte Rast machten.

Third (and last) cache on our weekend-trip through one corner of Belgium we stopped before crossing the river (okay, we are cowards...). When walked over the bridge we saw that it hadn't been any problem to cross by car.
We had a wonderful walk through the valley and when we went up, some people came down - must have been geocachers, because we saw in the logbook that the cache had been found some minutes ago.
Unbelievable: In the cache was a lighter we needed very much because we ran out of fire for our gas-stove. Thanks to the kind geocacher who dropped it in the cache!!!

Found it easily. Of course it is possible to return to the parking lot on an other way when continuing the wild and pittoresque valley of the Hoegne creek upwards until you reach Hockay. We, that's are my wife and my two children (10 months and two years old) made this way while carrying the babies in their baby carriages. We returned on the forestal way some 100 meters north to the valley.

Don't misunderstand my log. I do not recommend walking the path upward the valley for baby carriages. Only try to do so if You are experied in walking with babies in wild contries and having carriages made for rough terrain. My babies really did enjoy our walk.

Our last Captain Cook cache for today! Now we have all. We hope there will be more caches by Captain Cook...

After a hard and cold walk we could find the cache easily! Nice surroundings and very impressing red water...

Another very idyllic place for a cache. We walked along the river for 900m, as we approached the site we noticed 2 persons walking left & right, up & down near the path. Coming closer we recognized it was rafter & Co who we already knew. So this was a nice surprise and we had some talks going back to the parking. We searched for the cache altogether and it was Blinky Bill (Marco) who discovered it first this time.
Traded nothing.
