Geocache Description:

Tämä kätkösarja vie kävelylle Kustavin Lootholmaan. Matkalla kurkistetaan Kustavin historiaan ja Volter Kilven Kirkolle-kirjan loppupuolen maisemiin. Kätköalue on auki kesäisin, jolloin ensimmäisen kätkön lähelle pääsee parkkeeraamaan auton. Mitään pääsymaksua ei ole. Sesongin ulkopuolella alueelle pääsee jalkaisin, ja alueen omistajalta on lupa geoseikkailuun. Kätköistä löytyy vihjeitä bonuskätkön löytämiseen. Hauskaa kävelyä!

”Milloinkaan ei ole Suomessa saanut alkoholia niin helposti ja niin halvalla kuin kieltolain aikana”, sanoi eräs historianopettaja. Kieltolaki ei onnistunut estämään alkoholin tuontia maahan – tuontitapa vain muuttui salakuljetukseksi. Kustavissa toimi useita salakuljettajia ja Kustavin saaristossa on paljon pirtukätköiksi sopivia paikkoja. Tästä kätköstä ei löydy pirtua, mutta näköala Ströömille on hieno.

This cache series will take you for a walk in Lootholma in Kustavi. You will get a glimpse in the history of Kustavi as well as the scenery that Volter Kilpi described towards the end of his novel Kirkolle. The area is open in the summer, and there is a parking lot near the first cache. No entrance fee. Off season you can enter the area on foot and the owner has given his consent to geoadventuring. The caches contain information for finding a bonus cache. Have fun!

"In Finland, it has never been so easy to get liquor at such a cheap price than during the prohibition", said one history teacher. The prohibition didn't stop alcohol import in Finland - the importing was just done by smuggling. One of the smuggling routes went through Kustavi and there are many suitable hiding places in the archipelago. You won't find alcohol in this cache, but there is a nice view to the sea route, Ströömi, to enjoy.
