Geocache Description:

LAT: Slepnis ir micro, Bring Your Own Pen (BYOP)!!!!
ENG: The cache is micro, Bring Your Own Pen (BYOP)!!!!

LAT: Pirmais tanks pasaule tika uzbuvets Riga..... Šo faktu varbut var apgazt, bet vairakas dienas veicu izpeti, lai izvertetu, ko tad isti vesture saka par šo faktu. Atduros pie trim dažadam versijam un tapec izvelejos šo ka visticamako: Pirmo tanku pasaule uzbuveja 1915. gada maija Riga, rupnica “Russo-Balt”. Ta nosaukums bija “Visurgajejs”, masa bija 3.5 – 4 tonnas, paredzets vienam cilvekam un ložu necaurlaidigs. Atrums, ko tas vareja attistit bija 25 km/h. Tanku uzkonstruejis 23. gadus vecais A. A. Porohovšikovs. Ta paša gada septembri ari Anglija tika uzbuvets tanks, tacu tas vairs nebija pirmais un tas nevareja sasniegt tadu atrumu.
Slepnis atrodas pie rupnicas “Russo Balt”, kas ir pirmais vieglo automašinu un mikroautobusu piekabju izgatavotajs Latvijas Republika. Firmai ir daudzu gadu pieredze šaja joma. Pirma piekabju partija tika izgatavota 1989. gada.

ENG: The first tank in the world was made in Riga... You could possibly argue with this. I made a research on this issue and found three different versions of it. I chose the following one as the most reliable: The first tank in the world was built in May of 1915 in Riga, at the plant called Russo-Balt. The machine was named Go-Everywhere (Visurgajejs), its weight was 3.5-4 tons. There was place for a single person and it was bullet-proof. Its maximum speed was 25 km/h. The tank was constructed by the 23-year-old A. A. Porokhovshikov. In September of the same year a tank was made in England, but it was not the first one and it could not develop the same speed.
The cache is situated near the plant Russo-Balt which was the first to produce trailers for cars and vans in Latvia. The company has a long experience in this. The first batch of trailers was made in 1989.
