jukis&prusak: <div>For a very long time we wanted to improve this cache. When the container got lost and we started to think on how we can do that. We have decided to make it into a Multi Cache with several stages, that way geocachers will have an opportunity to explore the village and not just to drive by it.</div>

<div>After careful consideration taking into account all the details (cache type, difficulty, terrain etc.) we have decided to archive the old listing and post a new one, so even those who have found the old cache are interested in finding the new one. You are welcome to visit our new and improved cache (<a href="http://coord.info/GC301KF">visit link</a>). </div>

Geocache Description:


 
 
[LAT]
 
Ja kads Jums saka, ka Latvijai nav nakotnes, neticiet! Ta ir, pie tam tikai stundas brauciena no Rigas. Tas ir ciems Nakotne, kas padomju laika skaitijas kolhozs-miljonars, un ta vards bija pazistams ari arpus PSRS robežam, jo tieši šeit tika ieguti udelu tauki, kas tika plaši pielietoti francu kosmetika pretgrumbu kremu ražošanai.
 
Slepnis:
Slepnis ir maza izmera Lock&amp;Lock kastite, taja iekša atrodas logbuks, zimulis, zimulu asinamais, ka ari daži mainas priekšmeti.
 
Vieta:
Ciems Nakotne atrodas Jelgavas rajona , Gludas pagasta. Gludas pagasts atrodas Zemgales lidzenuma teritorija.
Kolhoza tika audzeti lopi, kultiveja lieliskus graudaugus un attistija cukurbiešu audzešanu. Tieši no šejienes pirmas škiras saknaugus parstradei veda uz Jelgavu, kur pavisam nesen vel darbojas cukurfabrika.
Pec Padomju Savienibas sabrukuma, kad daudzas saimniecibas beidza pastavet, Nakotne vel ilgi turejas, laikam tapec, ka stradnieki bija labi motiveti.
Kolhoznieki zinaja, ka par labi padaritu dabu gada beigas var sanemt premiju 10 menešalgu apmera. Šodien mes teiktu, ka sociala programma darbojas simts divprocentigi efektivi. Laikam tapec Nakotnes iedzivotajiem vienmer bija stimuls dzivot un stradat šeit. Parvakties neviens netaisas ari šodien. Sludinajumu par majoklu pardošanu nav, bet ja tie paradas, tad dzivokli uzreiz tiek izpirkti – ir pietiekami daudz cilveku, kas velas dzivot ciema. Un tas ir neskatoties uz to, ka majoklu cenas šeit ir tadas pašas ka Jelgava.
Nakotne dzivo aptuveni tukstotis cilveku, bet visa pagasta - aptuveni 3000. Ciema ir piecas izglitibas iestades, kulturas centrs, moto trase, sporta zale, publiska pirts, vairaki veikali un daudz kas cits.
 
P.S.
Slepni ieteicams apmeklet dienas gaiša laika, tad Jums bus iespeja uztaisit jaukas bildes. Tacu, ja Jus tadas lietas neieinterese, tad droši var doties turp ari nakts laika.
 
 
[ENG]
 
If someone tells you that Latvia has no future - do not believe. There is, besides it’s only an hour's drive from Riga – in village Nakotne, that in Soviet times was considered farm-millionaire, and it’s fame went far beyond the Soviet Union boarders. Right here oil of mink was extracted, that was widely used in the French cosmetics to create anti-wrinkle creams.
 
The Cache:
The cache is small size Lock&Lock container that contains logbook, pencil, pencil sharpener and also some exchange items.
 
The Location:
Village Nakotne is located in district of Jelgava, Gludas parish. Gludas parish is situated in Zemgale’s lowland.
In the farms here were grown livestock, cultivated and developed excellent beetroot. From here top-notch roots were taken for processing to Jelgava, where until recently worked a sugar factory.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, when many farms ceased to exist, Nakotne still remained afloat, probably because workers were well motivated.
Farmers knew that after a good work by the end of the year they could receive a bonus in amount of 10 monthly salaries. In general, as we would say now, a social program operated for one hundred percent. Perhaps that is why the residents of Nakotne always had an incentive to live and work here. Even now no seeks to leave. Here is no housing for sale, and if it appear, then the apartments are immediately bought – there’s a lot of people who want to live in the village. But the housing prices in the village are the same as in Jelgava.
About a thousand people live in Nakotne, throughout the parish - about 3’000. They have five educational institutions, cultural centre, moto-track, gymnasium, public baths, several shops and much more.
 
P.S.
It is recommended to visit the cache during the daytime, because than You will have the opportunity to make some nice pictures. But if You’re not into that kind of stuff than it’s OK to visit the cache during the night-time as well.
