How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

The cache is 20-30 meters from parking, either in front of the building or the lot next door. Terrain and finding is easy, but not necessarily wheelchair accessible. Please be careful of muggles at ALL times of the day! The building is currently undergoing major renovation.

Constructed between 1978-1980, Mikontalo is a massive apartment complex in the vicinity of Tampere University of Technology in Hervanta, the most densely populated suburb of Tampere, Finland. The complex houses a large percentage of the international exchange and degree students at the nearby university.

Mikontalo TB Exchange is a small "TB motel", where tired travel bugs can come to rest for a moment. We ask that you either leave a travel bug or trade so there is always at least 1 or 2 TBs inside! There is no room for huge TBs, but several reasonable size TBs should fit easily!

The container is a 0.5 liter curver/tupperware style plastic container. We started the container off with a local geocoin, our new TB named "PIGS", and several trinkets including a plastic bunny, Buzz Lightyear, a reflector, and flowers for the first to find. Good luck and happy caching!

Ja vielä suomeksi: Älkää, pliis, ottako TB:tä purkista pois, jos ette jätä toista tilalle! Kuten loki-kirjassakin lukee, se on VAIHTOkätkö. Hauskaa etsimistä!
