Geocache Description:

SLO: Zaklad je skrit v bližini spomenika Vandotovemu junaku.
ENG: The cache is hidden near monument of Vandot's hero.

SLO:
Nekdanja Borovška vas, sedajšnja Kranjska Gora leži med 'soncno' stranjo Karavank in 'sencno' stranjo Julijcev. Kraj je znan predvsem kot smucarski kraj, v poletnem casu je idealna izhodišcna tocka za osvajanje slovenskih Alp ali zgolj za pohajkovanje po slikoviti okolici.

Josip Vandot se je rodil v Kranjski Gori, 15. januarja leta 1884. V okolici Slavonskega Broda, je 11. julija 1944 ob bombardiranju koncal svojo življenjsko pot.
Zacel je z otroškimi pesmicami in crticami. Znan pa je postal po daljši mladinski pripovedi pastirskega življenja: Kekec. Kekec je pogumen, neustrašen in prijazen pastir, ki na visokogorskih pašnikih doživi marsikaj zanimivega.

Zacetna vsebina zaklada, ki naj ostane v njem: dnevnik in dehidracijski gel.

ENG:
Kranjska Gora is a great touristic destination. It is famous and popular SKI centre in winter. High peaks are a challenge for mountaineers. Road to the Vršic pass and bike routes are a pleasent idea for vacations. There is one of the entries to Triglav national park.

Vandot was born in Kranjska Gora (called "Borovška vas" at the time) in 1884. He was killed in the Allied bombing of Slavonski Brod in 1944.
Vandot is most famous for the creation of the character Kekec, a brave and clever shepherd boy from the highlands of his home region, the Karavanke and Julian Alps.

The initial contents of the cache which should not be removed are: logbook and dehydration gel.
