Geocache Description:

Perinteinen peruskätkö kauniissa pohjoissavolaisessa rantamaisemassa. An traditional geocache in a beautiful lake scenery of Northern Savo.

Kätkö on sijoitettu Iidan isän muinaiseen lapsuuden uimarantamaisemaan. Usein uintireissut keskeytyivät hetkeksi, kun isäntä Viitasalon saaresta meloi puisen lossinsa hevosineen ja maitokärryineen Kivisalmen yli. Mantereen puolelle saavuttuaan mies hevosineen kipusi jyrkkää rinnettä ylös, matkansa jatkui kohti Kettukankaan maitolaituria ja keskeytynyt uintituokiomme saattoi taas jatkua.

Maidon kuljetus jatkuu näinäkin päivinä, joskohta hevonen on vaihtunut mantereen puolella odottavaan lavamaasturiin. Kätkölle maitse saavuttaessa voi kulkuneuvon jättää koordinaattipisteeseen N 62°58.567' E 028°05.206'. On kohteliasta huomioida, että mahdollinen maitokuljetus pääsee sujuvasti etenemään rannasta kätköilijän kulkuneuvon ohi.

Koska Kivisalmi sijaitsee aivan Karhonvesi-Melavesi -laivareitin tuntumassa, on kätkölle helppo päästä myös vesiteitse.

****

This geocache is hidden on the swimming beach of my ancient childhood. Many times we saw the farmer living in the Viitasalo island floating his wooden ferry with a horse and a wagon on over the Kivisalmi inlet, to carry his daily milk barrels next to the Pelonniemi road. In our days, there is no more horse but a four-wheel-driven pick-up waiting on the mainland. So, please allow a free area to pass your vehicle, that you can park in coordinates N 62°58.567' E 028°05.206'.

It is easy to reach this cache by a boat, too. It is hidden closed to the water route from lake Karhonvesi to lake Melavesi.
