Geocache Description:


LAT : Slepnis ir loti maza izmera konteineris, aptuveni 2,5x1 cm, iekša ir tikai logbook. Konteineris ir labi nomaskets. Tas atrodas aptuveni 60 metrus no Glika ozoliem, leja uz tacinas pusi, nu praktiski pie tacinas. Vienkarši sekojiet koordinatam. Kad esiet atraduši slepni, apejieties ar to loti saudzigi. Nemiet lidzi savu rakstamo!!

LAT : Vacu macitajs Ernsts Gliks paveica vienu no sava muža nozimigakajiem darbiem – latviešu valoda iztulkoja Bibeli. Ka ari izveidoja pirmas skolas latviešu zemnieku berniem. Divi Glika staditie ozoli joprojam zalo pie bijušas macitajmuižas. Vienu ozolu Gliks stadijis 1685.gada pec Jaunas Deribas, otru – 1689.gada pec Vecas Deribas partulkošanas. Blakus tiem atrodas pieminas akmens ar uzrakstu “Glika ozoli. 1685–1689”, kas simbolize Vecas un Jaunas Deribas tulkošanas laiku. Akmens uzstadits 1985. gada par godu Bibeles pirmas dalas iztulkošanas trissimtgadei. Glika ozoli ir vieni no retajiem tik veciem ozoliem, kuriem zinams precizs to stadišanas laiks. Katru gadu vasaras sakuma šaja vieta notiek Glika dienas – pieminas pasakumi par godu vacu macitajam un vina veikumam.

ENG :The cache is a very tiny container, about 2,5x1 cm. It contains only a logbook. Bear in mind that the cache is masked rather tricky. It is placed approximately 60m away from the Gluck’s oaks, down in the valley in the direction of footpath. Well, just follow the coordinates. Once you’ve found the cache, handle it with care. Bring your own pen!!

ENG : In 1683 German priest Ernst Glück settled in Aluksne. He established the first three schools for the children of Latvian peasants. Also he was the first who translated the Bible into Latvian. To mark the translation of the New Testament in 1685 and of the Old Testament in 1689 Ernst Glück planted two oaks - Glück’s oaks. Every year memorial days for this great man take place in the shade of these oeaks.
