Geocache Description:

[LAT] Slepnis novietots Malpils novada meza pie Dzerves purva, kur, ka sagadijies, satiekas N57° paralele un E25° meridians. Sis fakts ari ir tas, ar ko minetais purvs var visvairak lepoties; ka ari ar to, ka pec I pasaules kara pastavejusi Malpils pagasta melioracijas sabiedriba „Dzerves purvs”.
Purvu Latvija ir daudz, tacu garuma un platuma veselo gradu krustpunkti ir tikai 9, turklat t.s. primarie, kads ir ari sis - 6. Vairak informacijas (angliski) -
Tipisks multi-slepnis ar tikai diviem punktiem. Tacu var izradities ari, ka tas nemaz nav tik vienkarsi ka izklausas, vienmer cela var gadities kadi neparedzeti skersli, un, atkariba no izdarita lemuma, ko darit, kur iet, grutibas pakape noklusanai lidz slepnim var varieet. Es neteiksu, kura puse (ziemelu vai dienvidu) ir labaka, bet varu pateikt to, ka ne no vienas puses tiesi pie slepna nekada taka nepienak, triszvaigznu briksni vairak vai mazak jus sagaidis jebkura gadijuma. Var noderet ari draudziba ar meza inzenieriem - bebriem un vinu buvem. Gumijnieki var but vajadzigi, var ari nebut vajadzigi.
Sakumpunkta apsedies, atputies, samekle micro izmera konteineri ar noradem; pamegini nokert sava GPS magiskos N57°00.000 E025°00.000. (neobligats) Papilduzdevums - uztaisi ekransavinu/nofotografe savas ierices ekranu ar sim koordinatam.

Cela uz slepni, ludzu, nebrauciet vietas, kur to nelauj aizlieguma zimes, neejiet pari iekoptiem labibas laukiem! Nav nepieciesams braukt cauri maju pagalmiem.

[ENG] Cache is located in Malpils municipality, by Dzerves (Crane) Swamp. It is dedicated to N57° and E25° confluence.
There are countless swamps in Latvia but only 9 latitude and longitude integer degree intersection points in addition to that exclusively 6 of them, like this one, are recognized as primary. More detailed description about this can be found at
Typical multi-cache consisting only of two stages. But as we all know, not everything is as easy as it seems... You could encounter some unexpected obstacles on your way and from that point difficulty of reaching the cache will vary upon your decision on which way to go or what to do. I will not reveal which side (N or S) is more easy than the other but i can tell you that there is no trails leading directly to the confluence point, you'll encounter T3 overgrowth anyways. Friendship with beavers - engineers of the forest - and their works can be useful. Gumboots may or may not be of use.
Locating the cache
Arriving at the ground zero, sit down, relax, look for a micro with directions; and try to get the N57°00.000 E025°00.000 on your GPSr. An optional sidetask (not necessary for logging) to this cache is to take a screenshot/photograph of your GPSr screen and to post this with your log.

Whlist making your journey towards cache, do not enter any areas which are marked with restriction signs, do not cross cultivated crop fields! And there is no need to disturb local people by driving through their backyards.
