Geocache Description:

[LAT] Slepnis ir mazs Augša kapjot esiet uzmanigi - trepes ir gar torna armalu un bez jebkadiem papildu drošibas elementiem. Šo slepni nemiet tikai tad ja esiet 100% parliecinati par savam tornu trepju kapšanas spejam. [ENG]Cache itself is small size box. Be careful climbing upstairs - ladders are along outside of the tower, and without any additional security features. Take this cache only if you are 100% sure of your tower stair climbing ability. Do it at you

[LAT] Berniba man tika stastits, ka tas ir ugunsdzeseju noverošanas tornis. Tapec ari tads slepna nosaukums. Tacu kad saku petit torna vesturi, atklajas interesanti fakti. Izradas laika ritejuma pavisam ir bijuši 3 torni. Torni ir buveti padomju armijas topografisko karšu izveidei, un ta ka musdienas šis topografijas kartes ir pieejamas un tiek izmantotas, var diezgan droši apgalvot ka šis tornis ir devis savu ieguldijumu slepnotajiem un ir pelnijis par to kadu slepni :) Pirmais tornis tika uzbuvets 1960tajos gados (195x.gads), no koka un ir bijis krietni augstaks par tagadejo (lai gan ari tagadejais nav nekads mazinais, precizu augstumu gan nezinu) Pec 15 -17 gadiem torna konstrukcijas bija savu nokalpojušas (koka savienojumi sapuva), un tika uzcelts otrais tornis - ap 1974 - 1976. gadu Ši (otra) torna pirmsakumos netalajas (manu vecvecaku) majas apmeram gadu esot dzivojuši topologi/geografi no toreizejas Leningradas (tagadejas Sanktpeterburgas) Agrak, kad sateliti vel nebiju ka musdienas, topografijas kartes tika veidotas fotografejot no lidmašinas un pec tam to uzmerot daba. Ziemas laika (kad purvi sasaluši) meritas ari tagadeja Teicu un Krustkalnu rezervatu teritorijas. Visbeidzot - trešais, tagadejais tornis. Tas ir veidots no metala konstrukcijam ~1986-1987.g. Uzcela, sakas "perestroika" un beigu beigas - palika ka viens no daudzajiem padomju mantojuma objektiem. Pirmajam atradejam - zilonis :)
[ENG] As a child I was told that it is a fire department observation tower. Therefore the name of the cache But as I began researching the history of the tower, revealed interesting wick. It turns out quite the passage of time has been 3 towers. The towers were built for the Soviet Army topographical maps creation, and since today these topography maps are available and are used, arguably that this tower has contributed for geocachers and deserves some of the cache :) The first tower was built in the 1960s (year 195x.), made of wood and was significantly higher than present (although even now it is no small one, I do not know the exact height) After 15 -17 years of tower had become waste (rotten wood joints), and was rebuilt in the second tower - around 1974 to 1976. years In the early days of this (second) tower about for a year lived topologysts / geographers from the former Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) (they lived at my grandparents house, which is near from tower) In the past, when the satellite was not as today, topographical maps were designed by photo shooting from an airplane and then making measurements in nature. During the winter (when the marshes were frozen) was measured present Teicu and Krustkalnu national parks. Finally - the third, the current tower. It is made of metal construction ~ 1986-1987.g. Built, then "perestroika" begun, and at the end - remained as one of the many Soviet heritage.
