Geocache Description:

Lyhyt multi Mätäojan ja omenatarhan kieppeillä.
A short multi close to "Rotten River" and an apple orchard. ("Mätä omena" = "Rotten apple")

Mätäjoki alkaa Louhelan ja Kaivokselan välistä (Djupbäck) ja päätyy Iso-Huopalahteen Vermon vieressä.
Kaarelan kohdalla se muodostaa lammikon rehevässä laaksossa. Lähistöllä on Malminkartanon omenatarha ja Helsingin yliopiston viljelyspalsta-alue, missä on ollut vanha asutuspaikka kampakeraamiselta kaudelta (noin 3300-2800 e.a.a.).

Mätäjoki (Rotten River:) starts from a marsh (Djupbäck) between Louhela and Kaivoksela. It flows into Iso-Huopalahti close to Vermo.
At Kaarela the river forms a pond in a lush valley. Close by are Malminkartano apple orchard and Helsinki University's small scale vegetable gardens, this area was populated during Comb Ware era (3300-2800 BC).

Alkupisteellä etsi sillan tukirakenteista kuvan mukainen puhelinyhtiön laatta. Siinä on yksi luku "a,b".
Linnunpöntön kannatinpylväässä on L kappaletta keraamisia sähköeristimiä.
xxx = b*10 + (a+b)
yyy = a*b*10
Kätkö on koordinaateissa:
60, 24 52.yyy
Vihjeen muuttuja N = L/2
Muista nauttia maisemista!
Purkin jatko-osaan mahtuu pieniä kulkijoita

At the starting coordinates search for a metal plate (see photo). It has two digits separated by a comma "a,b".
The pole supporting the birdhouse has L pieces of ceramic insulators.
xxx = b*10 + (a+b)
yyy = a*b*10
The cache is at:
60, 24 52.yyy
The hint's variable N = L/2
Enjoy the atmosphere!
