The person behind Acubens

 

As written in the index, my name's Helmut and I was born in Ilmenau, TH 1978. At that time, I raised the upcoming 12 years in the state 'German Democratic Republic'. After the German reunification, I got the abitur and spent 2 years at the security services at the German Air Force. On schedule to the autumn semester in 2000, I enlisted the degree programme civil engineering in Weimar, TH.

For a couple of years, I am working as a constructing engineer with regard to precast concrete components, steel construction and assembly planning especially for constructions of business facilities.

While spending the christmas holidays at my parents home, my best buddy told me about a kind of scavenger hunt. So I found my first cache punctually on Christmas Eve back in 2009.

Many month later, the first highlight that's looming on the horizon - the first grand! At that time I searched almost every cache, spotted right under my nose.

Today, I recognise quality instead of quantity. That's why I prefer a well placed multi cache instead of a powertrail with completing bonus. I prefer a well written earthcache with instructive lessons at side instead of a multi encrypted mysteries. In a nutshell - I prefer the simplicity of the beginning.

That's me, a guy who loves trailing the average mountains and the associated forests of his homeland - the Thuringian Forest.

This was my thousandth found in 2012.

What does AcubensCNC mean?

 

The constellation Cancer is one of the twelve figures of the zodiac. Its name is Latin for crab and its commonly represented as such. Cancer is small and its stars are faint. It is located between Gemini to the west and Leo to the east, Lynx to the north and Canis Minor and Hydra to the south.

 

Acubens (from the Arabic الزبانة az-zubānah 'the claws') is the name of the cancers main star and CNC ist the abbreviation of the regular identification code of the latin name. Therefore it resultes to α Cancri, in the sketch the biggest star.
