This cache is temporarily unavailable.

Bitaro: Olá Ladybug Kids,

Pelo teor dos últimos registos, parece necessária a intervenção do owner para verificar o estado da geocache.
Até lá, ficará temporariamente inactiva.

Por favor leia atentamente as Linhas de Orientação que regulam a manutenção das geocaches:

O dono da geocache é responsável por visitas à localização física.

Você é responsável por visitas ocasionais à sua geocache para assegurar que está tudo em ordem para funcionar, especialmente quando alguém reporta um problema com a geocache (desaparecimento, estrago, humidade/infiltrações, etc.), ou faz um registo "Precisa de Manutenção". Desactive temporariamente a sua geocache para que os outros saibam que não devem procurar a geocache até que tenha resolvido o problema. É-lhe concedido um período razoável de tempo - geralmente até 4 semanas - dentro do qual deverá verificar o estado da sua geocache. Se a geocache não estiver a receber a manutenção necessária ou estiver temporariamente desactivada por um longo período de tempo, poderemos arquivar a página da geocache.

Esta designação serve para geocaches que estão com alguma questão pendente ou um problema temporário por resolver.
Como owner, tem ao dispor, pelo menos, quatro soluções possíveis:

  1. Efectuar a manutenção necessária e reactivar a geocache, dentro do prazo estabelecido pelas Linhas de Orientação
  2. Colocar uma nota na geocache com o plano de manutenção, caso esta não possa ocorrer num curto espaço de tempo. Nessa nota deve constar:
    • o prazo em que pretende efectuar a manutenção,
    • o argumento pelo qual o prazo indicado abaixo terá de ser ultrapassado para que fique novamente activa;
  3. Caso não consiga assegurar a manutenção da mesma, pode considerar o processo de adopção por um geocacher local;
  4. Arquivar a geocache se não tiver disponibilidade para assegurar o estado pleno da mesma. Por favor, tenha em consideração que nesta opção é necessário remover a geocache ou os conteúdos da mesma para evitar que se tornem lixo (*geolitter*).

Assim, caso não seja feita manutenção ou indicado um motivo válido pelo qual a geocache deva estar desactivada além do tempo previsto pelas Linhas de Orientação, a mesma será arquivada num prazo de 60 dias (este prazo não é rigoroso enquanto a pandemia COVID-19 se mantiver - a manutenção deverá ser feita sempre em segurança, pois a sua saúde está primeiro que a saúde da cache!).

Relembro que não é possível desarquivar uma geocache que seja arquivada por falta de manutenção.

Obrigado pela colaboração

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Come visit Alaska in the Monsanto Forest Park near Montes Claros Belvedere.  Alaska has many places with scenic views and this park is no different.  You can see Lisbon, the Tagus River, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Sintra and Arrabida Hills during your walk.  The Pista Miradouro M. Claros will take you near the cache.


Alaska, "The Last (American) Frontier" is the largest of the 50 United States of America with more than 1,720,000 km2 of land.  Running north to south, Alaska is 1300 km "tall," and east to west is 2380 km "wide."  It is so big that if it was cut in half, it would be the first and second largest states.  Despite being so large, Alaska has only 626,000 inhabitants.

Denali (Mt. McKinley) is North America's highest point at 6194 meters in height.  Alaska is also a land of weather extremes, with a record low temperature of -62° C (recorded at Prospect Creek near Coldfood, a few kilometers north of the Arctic Circle) and a record high temperature of 38° C (recorded at Fort Yukon, 13 km north of Arctic Circle).  Alaska's and Hawaii's record high temperature is the same!  

Alaska's geography includes 55,000 km of coastline, dozens of  mountain ranges, thousands of glaciers covering 41,000 km2, 3.5 million lakes larger than 8 ha, temperate rain forests, arctic tundra, marshes, and permafrost.  

Alaska has been inhabited since prehistoric times by several Alaska Native groups.  In 1741, Vitus Bering led a Russian expedition of exploration and claimed Alaska for Russia.  During the following decades, there was extensive harvesting of sea otter pelts and Russia established a capital in Sitka, Alaska.  The United States of America bought Alaska from Russia in 1867 for $7.2 million in a deal later called "Seward's Folly" because many Americans did not understand the great wealth of natural resources waiting to be discovered. Today, most of Alaska's wealth comes from oil, mining, fishing, and tourism.

Most Alaskans enjoy 24 hours of daylight during the summer months because the state is so far north.  Of course, that means there are many long hours of darkness in the winter, but we compensate by putting lights on our cross-country and downhill ski trails.  We also need the long winter nights to recover from playing so hard during the long summer "white nights."



The International Geocache Exchange. What is it?

The
"A Piece of Alaska in Portugal"cache is part of an international geocache exchange project.

The idea to exchange geocaches internationally was popularized in this thread in the geocaching.com forum. You might also like to see the Nordic thread.

An international geocache exchange involves the exchange of a new, fully prepared geocache with a geocacher from a different country. The caches are filled with items unique to each cacher's individual locale. Once an exchange has occurred, each geocacher has the other person's geocache to hide as their own.  Both cachers' names are listed in the 'hidden by' section.

Bargao_Henriques and the Ladybug Kids met through geocaching when they were partners for the "Devils in Danger" game.  We successfully completed both challenges and won a set of geocoins in the drawing at the conclusion of the game.  Now, we have placed "A Piece of Portugal in Alaska (GC1050Z)" and "A Piece of Alaska in Portugal (GC15TAE)."

We hope you enjoy searching for our caches!

It is a real privilege to live in Alaska where so many caches are an adventure.  Rather than write more about it, we'll share a photograph from a caching adventure taken in Spring (Chuggah, Chuggah! in Goldstream Valley, Fairbanks), Summer (Roots above Bear Valley, Anchorage), Fall (Granite Tors, Chena River State Park) and Winter (Panorama, Denali State Park).

Reviewer notes

Use this space to describe your geocache location, container, and how it's hidden to your reviewer. If you've made changes, tell the reviewer what changes you made. The more they know, the easier it is for them to publish your geocache. This note will not be visible to the public when your geocache is published.
