Geocache Description:

This is a micro size cache in Western Pasila in a place with bad GPS coverage. The location is easily reachable by public transportation, foot and bicycle.


Huolintatalo was built in 1982 for John Nurminen Oy. The building was named Huolintatalo after John Nurminen Oy's main business in logistics. As of mid-2009, the building houses various companies and organisations including John Nurminen Oy, John Nurminen Foundation, Elintarviketeollisuusliitto ry, Nurminen Logistics Oyj and Suomen Leipuriliitto ry. The John Nurminen Foundation has old maps, model ships and naval art on display in the building.

Cache does not contain a pen so remember to bring your own. Be careful with the plastic bag when emptying the container and try to put the log back the way it was. Note that heavy snow can make it very difficult to find this cache.

If you insist on arriving by car, please don't park on the tram track.

About the hint: Majority of geocachers have considered the hint pointless and even misleading. You have been warned. Instead of removing the hint altogether I've left the hint here just for the record.

---

Mikrokätkö Länsi-Pasilassa paikassa, jossa rakennusten aiheuttamat GPS-signaalin heijastukset voivat tuottaa ongelmia. Paikalle pääsee helposti sekä julkisilla että lihasvoimin.

Kätkössä ei ole kynää joten ota oma mukaan. Varo rikkomasta muovipussia ja pyri laittamaan loki takaisin niin kuin se oli. Perinteistä Helsingin talvea runsaampi lumimäärä voi hankaloittaa kätkön löytymistä huomattavasti.

Älä parkkeeraa raitiovaunukiskoille vaikka saapuisitkin autolla.

Vihjeestä: Valtaosa kätköilijöistä on kokenut vihjeen joko turhaksi tai haitalliseksi. Jätän vihjeen paikalleen jos en muuten niin sitten historiallisista syistä. Lue vinkki omalla vastuulla.
