Geocache Description:

Cachen er godt synlig plassert på offentlig vei. Det er ingen grunn til å bevege seg innenfor gjerde. Cachen er godt synlig fra to bolighus men de som bor der er klar over hva slags aktivitet det er som foregår.

The cache is placed in plain sight on a public road. There is no reason to enter the private property on the other side of the fence. The owners of the two nearest houses on the other side of the road knows what type of activity is going on here.

Mens det var gruvedrift på Røros ble skogen nord for byen hugget for å bli brukt i gruvene, men smeltehytta trengte mye kull. Dette ble produsert i Femundsmarka. Det er opp denne veien de som kjørte kullet til smeltehytta kjørte for å komme seg frem til smeltehytta på malmplassen.

Paralellgaten lengre vest heter barhølet. Det virker som at kommunen har gitt opp å henge opp skilt med gatenavn på den veien fordi det ofte ble stjålet. Navnet "Barhølet" har ingen sammenheng med brune puber å gjøre. Kølkjørerne dekket til kullet med bar for å beskytte det mot været. Dette måtte de kvitte seg med før de kom inn til byen og historien sier at her var det et søkk i terrenget de pleide å kaste dette.

This road is called "kølkjørarveien" ("Coaldriversroad"). During the times when mining was the major activity in this town they used coal for the smelting of the ore. The coal was produced in the Femundsmarka southeast of Røros and this road was the last leg of the transport to town.

The paralellroad to the west is called "Barhølet" which translates to "sprucebranch dump" but litteraly translation can also mean something like "crappy pub". When they drove the coal in the old days, the drivers covered the load with branches from spruce to protect it from the weather. These branchey they used to throv away at this place.

Because of the litteraly meaning of that road, the name of the road is not on any signs. They have a history of beeing stolen so it looks like the local authorities has given up on setting up signs.
