How often do you come across a Geocache where you can safely put down your oversized navigation system you might be using? In my case I just love to go geocaching with my tablet. Before you ask it is due to my age which means my vision is getting worse and not to support the progress I prefer something bigger and more visible.
|The geocache is hiding under the branches, and see my tablet...|
This geocache I found on a business trip to Hungary on the way home. I left the hotel early morning to finish up the shopping list I got from the family and then took the longest way to the airport and even when I was so close I did not go in, but searched for many around it. Driving on dirt road all around.

Geocaches in woods can be challenging, and if you want to go fast with them go to the woods when most or all the leaves are already on the ground as they really can mess your GPS coordinates up while up on the trees. This one at this time of the year was a quick park, walk into the woods, forget if I closed the car or not, so before loosing it walking back closing, then walking again into the woods, a quick find, signing the log and taking some pictures ... then back to the car, realizing running short on time before the flight.
|Walking away from the geocache...|
I'm sure this picture would be an immediate spoiler if I uploaded it with my log. It is a unique tree there holding the geocache. I had a few trackable with me but as this geocache is registered on another geocaching site it is mentioned in the description not to leave trackables behind as players on the other field do not know much about them and they would just swap them out and keep.
|The dense woods...|
At this time of the year you can see through the woods, I bet from spring it can be so dense that you would not see so deep into there.
|Dirt road leading close to the geocache...|
As you can see the dirt Road
there it looks not that bad, but trust me with the small compact car I rented it was one of the easiest parts to drive around the airport of Budapest.
This geocache was placed out next to the radar from the airport and there used to be a viewpoint as well, but it looks like it is gone by now.
It was really a windy, cold day, but all those geocaches I found on the day made it up for it. I have to mention after this geocache I dropped of the car at the airport and the guy was looking at it like asking "what happened?". So I decided to answer him telling him my navigation got me the shortest route to where I had to go. Did not mention I had to go into the woods and on dirt roads as my destination was there. I left enough geocaches in the area so that next time I can continue, most probably not on these dirt roads, but others.
Many thanks for the cache owner for this hide it was a good finish for the trip.
