Geocache Description:

Slepnis ir neliela plastmasas karbinja, kura ir blocinjsh, zimuljasinamais un dazhadi nieki mainjai.
Cache is small plastic box with logbook, pencil sharpener and some trading items.

[LV] Slepnis novietots pa celam uz baronam Minhauzenam veltito muzeju Duntes muizhaa.

Istu, vispasaules nozimes slavu no Minhauzenu dzimtas ir ieguvis vienigi Hieronims Karlis Fridrihs fon Minhauzens - tas pats, kurš Lejassaksijas Minhauzenu dzimtas ciltsrakstu gramata ierakstits ar 701.
Hieronims dzimis 1720.gada 11.maija Bodenverdera - pilseta Vacijas rietumos. Hieronims bija piektais berns astonu bernu gimene. Sekojot teva pedam, zenu noliga par pažu Braunšveigas - Volfenbuteles hercoga galma, bet 1735.gada vinš kluva par pažu Ferdinanda Albrehta II svita. 1737.gada Minhauzens ir viens no diviem brivpratigajiem, kas parcelas uz Krieviju, lai kalpotu par pažu princa Antona Ulriha svita Krievija, bet velak - no 1740.gada turpinaja militaro karjeru Riga dislocetaja kirasieru (smaga kavalerija) Braunšveigas pulka rota, veiksmigi izvairoties no Krievijas galma notiekošajam intrigam.
Viens no jauna un sabiedriska barona draugiem - Baltijas muižnieks, Rigas tiesnesis Georgs Gustavs fon Duntens esot uzaicinajis Minhauzenu uz medibam sava lauku ipašuma, kur poruciks sašavis gana daudz pilu, bet ari pats ticis pagalam amora bultas ievainots, jo iemilejas skaistaja muižas saimnieka meita Jakobine. Interesanti, ka vinas teva priekšteci ieradušies Latvija no tam pašam vietam, kur bija dzimis Minhauzens - no Lejassaksijas Vacija. 1744.gada 2.februari Hieronims un Jakobine fon Duntena salaulajas Pernigeles draudzes (tagad - Liepupes) vecaja baznica un Duntes muiža abi pavadija dzives laimigakos gadus.
Hieronims Karlis Fridrihs fon Minhauzens nomira ar trieku 1797.gada 22.februari, pamests vientuliba un apsmiekla. Vinš apbedits Bodenverdera, Kemnades klostera baznica. Drizuma ari radas apzimejums „Minhauzena fenomens”, kas patiešam ir reta paradiba, ka vel divsimt gadus pec naves tiek daudzinats cilveks, kas nav veicis ne zinatniskus atklajumus, ne guvis ieveribu maksla vai literatura, kas nav vadijis karagajienus, nav dibinajis partijas un valstis. Ka zinams, par Minhauzenu ir sarakstiti vairaki simti gramatu un atseviški raksti, vinam veltitas daudzas kinofilmas, lugas, pastmarkas, tris muzeji: Vacija, Krievija un Latvija, Dunte. Vina vards tiek lietots medicina un filosofija, ka apzimejumu to plaši izmanto sadzive un politika, tacu diemžel - ar dažadu nozimi, reizem pat aizskarot vina cienu.

[EN] Cache is placed near the way to the Baron Munchausen`s museum in Dunte Manor - one of the tree dedicated museums in the world.

Not everyone knows that behind the valiant and quick-witted cuirassier squadron leader who flies on a cannonball over different centuries and countries, and manages to pull himself and his horse out of a swamp with his own hair, hides a real-life person with a complicated destiny – Karl Friedrich Hieronymus von Munchausen (1720–1797).
Hieronymus was born on 11 May, 1720, in Bodenwerder, a town in West Germany. Following in his father’s footsteps, the boy was sent to work as a page in the court of Duke Braunschweig-Wolfenbuettel, but first he was sent to Bern castle – one of the Duke’s residences, where he was taught etiquette and manners.
Later, on December, 1737, two volunteer youths headed for Russia: von Hoim and von Munchausen, to serve in Prince Anton Ulrich’s entourage.
Afterwards, Munchausen entered Latvia – through Russia’s Imperial Arch of Triumph raised by Peter I at Poltav.
In December 1740, von Munchausen, sensing unrest approaching, had resigned from his page duties and continued a military career with Braunschweig’s squadron company of cuirassiers (heavy cavalry) stationed in Riga.
One of the Baron’s new and sociable friends – a Baltic estate owner, Riga judge Georg Gustav von Dunten is said to have invited Munchausen hunting on his land, where the lieutenant not only shot many ducks but was struck by Cupid’s bow himself, as he fell in love with the landowner’s daughter, Jacobine. Interestingly, her father’s predecessors had arrived in Latvia from the same area as Munchausen’s birthplace – from Lower Saxony (Germany). On 2 February, 1744, Hieronymus and Jacobine were married in the old church of Pernigel parish (now – Liepupe) and spent their happiest years at Dunte Manor.
