Geocache Description:


After travelling all the way from Raleigh in North Carolina (USA) in October 2010, geocacher VirtKitty organised a geocaching event in Helsinki. The event (GC2DY0W) was held in the restaurant Vltava. The main theme of the event was Go, Hurricanes, Go!

This is the memorial geocache of the meeting. The PET micro box is located close to the restaurant, in a corner of the Main Post Office. The Post Office building is a remarkable manifestation of the functionalist fashion in the Finnish architecture of the late 1930s. Nowadays the building is occupied by e.g. an extraordinary urban public Library 10.

The magnetic cache is hidden in a very busy spot and it has no room for trackables. Given the fact that the cache is hidden in a very urban milieu, especially in the summertime the seeker should be prepared to tolerate urban lifestyle, including odors. Many has tolerated, since this is one of the most visited geocaches in Helsinki.

Suomeksi:
Pohjois-Carolinasta (USA) matkannut VirtKitty järjesti lokakuussa 2010 miitin Helsingissä. Tämä on ravintola Vltavassa pidetyn ja NHL-joukkue Hurricanesin innoittaman miitin (GC2DY0W) muistokätkö.

PET-putkilo on piilotettu näköetäisyydelle ravintolasta, massivisen 1930-luvun funktionalismia edustavan Postitalon nurkkaukseen (valmistunut v. 1938). Piilon lähellä sijaitsee mm. käymisen arvoinen ja omintakeisen urbaani Kirjasto10.

Melkein kaupungin vilkkaimmassa paikassa sijaitsevaan magneettiseen purkkiin ei mahdu kulkijoita. Hyvin urbaanille nurkkaukselle tyypillisesti etsijän kannattaa varautua sietämään urbaania elämää odööreineen kaikkineen. Moni on sietänyt, koska tämä on yksi Helsingin eniten löydetyistä geokätköistä.

Terveisinä VirtKittylle olisi mukavaa, jos lokitekstit olisivat myös englanniksi.
