Geocache Description:

Helpohko kätkö vanhan maantien läheisyydessä. A quite easy cache nearby an old road.

Kätkö sijaitsee vanhan maantien varrella.

Maantie on kulkenut Kuopion läänistä Saarijärven kautta Kokkolaan ja Vaasaan. 1950 ja 1960 -lukujen vaihteessa liikenne väheni vanhalta maantieltä 13-tien tultua uusine linjauksineen. Saman vanhan maantien varrelle sijoittuu myös kätköt Saarijärven vallihaudat (eero) sekä Koivistonkylä (jupilli).

Perimätiedon mukaan Ristniemenmäen kohdalla Kakolaan kuljetettava vanki tappoi vartijansa. Noin 150 metriä kätköltä kaakkoon sijaitsee vanha tervanpolttohauta, jonka jo nykyisin on metsä vallannut, mutta nähtävissä on vielä ojia, joita pitkin tervaa on juoksutettu.

Kätkön huoltamisessa auttavat ukko ja Trinity-, kiitos heille.

Varoitus: Kätkön lähistöllä on syytä varoa käärmeitä.

The cache is located nearby an old Road leading from the province of Kuopio to the cities of Kokkola and Vaasa. As the new road 13 was built in the late 1950's traffic diminshed on the older road.

According to an old tradition a prisoner killed a person guarding him during a transport to the prison of Kakola. The cache site is also remarkable as an old tar burning pit. Some of the old structures can be seen about 150 meters southwest of the cache.

Maintenance is assisted by ukko and Trinity-

Beware of snakes near the cache.
