Finding A Cache In France


Followers 0

Recommended Posts

I am due to visit Mayenne in France to see friends and wanted to find my first Cache abroad. Can any one tell me how to go about finding one. I have used the post code and Mayenne as a search but no results. Thanks

 

Go here: http://www.getty.edu/research/conducting_r...cabularies/tgn/

Put the city/town name into the 'find name' field. In the returned results, find your destination and click on it.

Select the 'inhabited place' name from the list and there you will find the coords which you can then use for a search start point. Repeat for the rest of your itinerary. Have a wonderful trip. :huh:B)B)

 

And as a free bonus, you don't need to know how to speak French. lol

 

P.S. Ain't this here internet thingy wonderful? :unsure:

The Search on "Rechercher par département" when I select Mayenne gave me no selections though..

Désolé ! Aucune réponse de trouvée :unsure:

 

Go figure ...when I searched Paris, I also found nothing. perhaps there is a problem with the search engine? I'll keep looking.

Using Google earth I found several caches within 60-70 KM of Mayenne, France

 

How many did you find? :P:P:rolleyes:
