Barontoo's Blogspot

Welcome on the webblog of Barontoo, the first Belgian blog listed as a WAYMARK. I started this blog in July 2005 in my mothertongue Dutch. But since it is listed as a Waymark I continue to write my comments in English. So take a look at it, post somewhere a comment and do not forget to log it! To do so click on the 1st link in the left frame hereunder and click then on "Visit Waymark (Post log)". Thanks!

Stop building in Woluwe

This is the name of a cache I placed on 30 may 2003 (see here). A lot of geocachers saw already that it did not help. At this moment a lot of construction works are going on in our town.
And look what is happening now! Right in front of our home works started to build 50 flats and 60 parking places.

Caching with GPSlug from Canada

Today I met in Brussels GPSlug, an American cacher living in Calgary, Canada. I picked him up at his hotel and off we went for 2 caches.
In the northern part of Brussels we started with "De (FC) Brug(ge) Cache". First we thought that we could find our way to the stash by using a way leading to a farm. The farmer we met told us that it was impossible that way and he showed us a path further on. He was very friendly and we took some pictures of his cow.Some cows ...

GPSlug spotted the cache immediately. At The other side of the bridge!
It was a micro, a filmcannister with a logbook, with a second box near it with some goodies. Was this box a penismeter??Penismeter?
Then we went to the SE of Brussels to find the cache of "St Reinelda". In the middle of the fields of a small village we found the holy source of St Reinelda. Rather special that source. We had never seen someting like that. The holy source
Then we drove 3 km further to find WP2. From there it was a nice walk along a polluted river and 3 other WP's that were all easily spotted. We found the cache between the roots of 4 trees. I was glad that GPSlug putted a Calgary Cachers Geocoin in it. So I could take it out ...
Thanks GPSlug for this nice day. I enjoyed it very much. Hope one day I can do some geocaching in your region.
