Geocaching in Aying Land I

Cacheparadies Aying

Have you never heard of Aying? I felt the same way, until I met a traveler who came from nearby and said, no better raved.
Of course, my curiosity was aroused and when you look at as a place Aying, you actually only find caches with a very high Favo number.

A colleague was quickly found and we went to Aying-Land for two. The aim of visiting all of the Owner Team Aying caches. For this we included time from Monday- Friday, day of arrival and departure.

Since we are coming from the north-west of Munich, we had to go around Munich. Aying is “behind”. For the journey we had considered a stop before Munich. With geocache, of course. The Aying team isn't represented there, but somehow the cache #1 is part of agent training, but also a bit of it. The cache #3 agent training is then again from Team Aying…. Well, it seemed like the ideal break for us – and it turned out to be. And then it went on the Munich Ring to Aying.

Team Aying
Team Aying was founded in May 2016 by Martin and Markus (Die Rooneys und sinnesf3unde). Soon Anton (GoaßenToni, whom some know from many a cacher trip) was added and Helmut (Kumuddel) was a fresh addition to the team. 4 men with great ideas and a lot of craftsmanship, we can only confirm.
We have also explicitly received permission to report on the caches. This is not always the case if you want to blog about Caches ... .. Since Aying is not exactly the navel of Germany (please excuse, it is wonderfully wonders!), The caches are not visited by asooo many visitors as they certainly deserved. With our report, we want to encourage you a little to visit the Ayingland.
There is a team website, with which they want to support geocachers in building their caches and of course draw attention to their caches.

1. Cache: Agententraining
We start directly on the way with the agent training #1, GC665er. This cache is not from the Owner Team Aying, but somehow belonged to it or something like that. Since we want to play the #3, of course we also wanted to have done #1. On our journey, however, #2 was closed, so that it stayed with the #1 and #3… ..
But #1 was worth it! The cache is listed as a letterbox and with currently around 55% Favo rate it doesn't exactly have the highest ranking of our tour. However, the photos promise a nice walk and for us it is a welcome change on the drive. Coming from the north-west, we want to go to Aying-Land, which for us is "behind" Munich. That's where Agent Training #1 is pretty good for a break.
At station 2 we looked for the wolf. We tried to interpret the hint and find something - quite difficult at a crossroads in the field. We turned every stone... Then we went back to the car, a little frustrated about the bad start of our caching vacation. You drive past the spot again by car and we were still puzzling. But it didn't leave us alone, so we got out again - and as always: if you can read, you have a clear advantage! There is no station here yet!!!! And already it slipped! Parked the car again and started this really great round on foot. Yes, there is a few meters of hiking to come, but so is the wildlife enclosure. And we were more than excited about that. The animals were trusting and we spent some time taking photos. Then it continued on the way of the letterbox. All stations were easy to find. You often look for solid metal labels with information. As usual with a letterbox, you have a description of a route. At one point we got stuck again, reading the listing helped us here too. Here one of the small plaques was missing and the solution was already in the hints. So no problem at all if you concentrate. As "Agent X" we bravely fought our way through the cache. The finale was very easy to find.
Since we were prepared, but didn't have all the materials with us, we were initially unsure whether we would be able to work out all the solutions. We had a compass with us, but no printout. And the compass doesn't look really good on the cell phone display. But we didn't need it either. With a little practiced eye you can find the right solution without a compass and a printout – only with a ruler and mobile phone display.
All in all, we found this letterbox to be very nicely made. Old school, no newfangled frills with a lot of technology. We were involved in the agent's story and felt well prepared for the days to come. We got through the cache well in the specified time of 2 hours on the 3 km route. It is also particularly nice that there is a banner when you have proven yourself as an agent.

Apartment in Aying Land
On the website of the Aying team you will find some suggestions for accommodation and also for the - important - catering. We decided on the Broich apartment what a stroke of luck was.
Pretty happy with the outcome of this letter box on our journey we drove around Munich and arrived in our beautiful apartment. We had chosen the apartment Broich from Mr. Horst Broich because the situation for our planned caches was simply cheap. Further information is available here:​ Oberpframmern is a small place that doesn't have much to offer - apart from the convenient location to Team Aying's caches and the great holiday apartment. We had a large eat-in kitchen, a living room and two bedrooms. The second bedroom is in the basement and allows you to sleep in even if someone is already active in the apartment on the ground floor. The bathroom is modern and a good size. Both the kitchen and the living room lead to the terrace, which is furnished with chairs and a table. From here you have a wonderful view of the landscape. Real holidays in Bavaria. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could wish for. And the apartment is also suitable for the smaller purse. However: cash payment required. But you can plan for that...

2. Cachestation: Aying has the longest…..
Aying has the longest... - that's the name of the cache we visited first in Aying. It wasn't laid by Team Aying, but it's almost impossible to miss. GC7B9FZ suggests a slightly slippery cache with the funny saying. When you're there, you know what's going on. But finding it and having your own image with the object is far from enough. It is also about finding solutions to questions. Seven waypoints are given, some of the answers really surprised us. In particular, after a americanophilen Promi asked. I had never heard of that... There you can see again: caching is educational.

Catering in the Ayinger Braustübl
We actually only went to this cache because we wanted to have dinner in the nearby inn in Aying, the Ayinger Braustübl. By the way, that's a good decision!
At the end of the evening we felt like we had already seen all of Aying. It's really not a big city.
There is also a Team Aying cache in the restaurant itself. After a delicious Bavarian dinner, we of course made our way to this cache under Corona conditions.

3. Cache: Ayinger Braustübl
What else should the cache be called? After all, it is located in the beer garden of the Braustübl and is of course laid with the approval of the host. You certainly do him, but also a big favor if you stop here before or after the cache. In any case, it is not a mistake!
Unfortunately, we got to the cache in the dark (but chatted too long...) and were still flashed. In keeping with our status, we filled out the special log book and made sure that our names could also be read “the right way round”. If you want to understand that now, drive by!

4. Cache: Hanging by a thread
Because we weren't tired at all and we were too excited, we convinced our driver to head for this one last cache. The GC6MPE2 includes a direction finding task that we had of course solved before at home. We didn't quite understand the hint, but it's usually clear on site. Same here. We arrived and it quickly became clear how to get the logbook. Not for the first time - and not for the last time on our tour - I thought that I would also like to be able to build something like this....

Our first day in Aying-Land came to an end with this cache. It's starting very well
