btreviewer: Esta cache foi arquivada por falta de uma resposta atempada e/ou adequada perante as situações relatadas. Relembro a secção das guidelines sobre a manutenção http://support.groundspeak.com/index.php?pg=kb.page&id=307#maint :

[quote]
You are responsible for occasional visits to your cache to maintain proper working order, especially when someone reports a problem with the cache (missing, damaged, wet, etc.). You may temporarily disable your cache to let others know not to search for it until you have a chance to fix the problem. This feature is to allow you a reasonable amount of time – normally a few weeks – in which to check on your cache. If a cache is not being maintained, or has been temporarily disabled for an unreasonable length of time, we may archive the listing.

Because of the effort required to maintain a geocache, we ask that you place physical caches in your usual caching area and not while on a vacation or business trip. It is best when you live within a manageable distance from the cache placements to allow for return visits. Geocaches placed during travel may not be published unless you are able to demonstrate an acceptable maintenance plan, which must allow for a quick response to reported problems. An acceptable maintenance plan might include the username of a local geocacher who will handle maintenance issues in your absence.[/quote]

Como owner, se tiver planos para recolocar a cache, por favor, contacte-me por [url=http://www.geocaching.com/email/?u=btreviewer]e-mail[/url].

Lembro que a eventual reactivação desta cache passará pelo mesmo processo de análise como se fosse uma nova cache, com todas as implicações que as guidelines actuais indicam.

Se no local existe algum container, por favor recolha-o a fim de evitar que se torne lixo (geolitter).

Obrigado

Geocache Description:

Esta cache tem como objectivo dar a conhecer o Sobreiro, a partir do qual se produz a cortiça, um dos maiores produtos de exportação português.

[PT]

O SOBREIRO

sobreiro é uma árvore da família do carvalho, cultivada no sul da Europa e a partir da qual se extrai a cortiça. O sobreiro é, juntamente com o Pinheiro-bravo, a espécie de árvores mais predominante em Portugal, sendo mais comum no Alentejo litoral e serras Algarvias.

 A extracção da cortiça não é (em termos gerais) prejudicial à árvore, uma vez que esta volta a produzir nova camada de "casca" com idêntica espessura a cada 9 - 10 anos, período após o qual é submetida a novo descortiçamento

A finalidade da cortiça é o fabrico de isolantes térmicos e sonoros de aplicação variada, mas especialmente na produção de rolhas para engarrafamento de vinhos e outros líquidos. Portugal é o maior produtor mundial de cortiça.

O fruto, como em outros carvalhos, é a bolota, também conhecida por lande ou ainda glande.

O sobreiro é uma espécie que requer humidade e solos relativamente profundos e férteis, embora também tolere temperaturas altas e períodos secos de três a quatro meses, típicos do clima do sul de Portugal.

THE CORK OAK TREE 


The cork oak tree, which belongs to the oak family, is cultivated in southern Europe and from it is extracted the cork. The cork oak is, along with the Pine-mad, the most common tree specie in Portugal, being more common in Alentejo and the Algarve.

The extraction of the cork doesn't damage the tree, since it generates a new layer of "skin" with the same thickness every 9-10 years, after which it is then subjected to further stripping.
 
Cork is mainly used in the manufacture of thermal and sound isolation with wide applications, but especially in the production of stoppers for bottling wine and other liquids. Portugal is the world's largest producer of cork.
 
The fruit, like other oaks, is the acorn, also known by lande or glans.
 
The cork oak is a specie that requires moisture and relatively deep and fertile soils, but also tolerates high temperatures and dry periods of three to four months, the typical climate of southern Portugal.
 

CACHE

[PT] Esta cache tem um objectivo algo diferente e especial (e facultativo). Cada geocacher deverá, caso queira, levar uma rolha de cortiça para colocar no container, na qual deverão escrever o username/nome e a data. O objectivo é estar apenas uma rolha assinada no container, portanto, ao encontrar a cache, deverão retirar a rolha assinada que lá se encontrava e colocar uma nova com os respectivos dados. Caso estejam de passagem e não tenham rolha, há umas poucas de reserva dentro do container. Para além disto a cache contém também logbook (em formato especial) e caneta. Boa sorte!

[ENG] This cache has a goal somewhat different and special (and opptional). Each geocacher should, if desired, take a cork to place inside the container, in which he/she should write the their username/name and date. Only one signed cork should be in the container at the same time, therefore, whoever finds the cache should remove the signed cork and place a new one with their data. If you're just passing by and have no cork, there are a few spare ones inside the container. In addition, the cache contains a logbook (in a special format) and pen. Good Luck!
