AkiKarhu: Hi everybody!

Sad news.
I am truly sorry, I have to archive XXL. This time for good.
It was again completely destroyed, ripped of every part that was possible to rip off. The rest is still hanging there. I will remove the remains within the next days.
Unfortunately it's too much of work and too less of time to build it up from the scratch again. I have already done this once.
XXL has faced its end.

Thank you very much to all of you that came to log XXL and for your positive logs!
I do hope you had fun in doing so and I could produce at least a smile onto your face. That was my idea with this geocache.

Below a link to a PDF-file that shows how the 3 versions of XXL looked like, in case you haven't had the possibility to log it.

See you at the next geocache! [8D]

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The 'container' is really really LARGE (XXL sized!) and wheelchair accessible! So, it's not on the stairs. SINCE 12/2013: NEW COORDINATES! The log sheet compartment is inside the 'container' BELOW the "thing" that has the size of a Din A4 sheet of paper. Pull out the little screw on the right hand side to get the log sheet out.

'Eniten liikkuva' Tradi Vaasassa!

Ota GEO-silmät mukaan, jätä puusilmät kotiin!
Kätkö ei löydy kadun vierestä (katualueelta)!
Ei tarvita erikoistyökaluja!

Vaasan poliisi valvoo tätä kätköä! Eli jos olet viime aikoina ryöstänyt pankin, varastanut lokivihkoja tai olet jostain muusta syystä Interpolin listalla, ei ehkä kannata lähestyä tätä kätköä ilman aurinkolaseja, tekopartaa ja karvalakkia. ;-)

'Purkista' löydät 3 punaista kirjainta. Jos lähetät niiden avulla sähköposti, niin saat lisäinfo XXL:n kuumasta historiasta.
Esim., jos 3 punaista kirjainta olisi ABC, lähetä sähköposti seuraavaan osoiteeseen: ABC.GEOCACHE.XXL@GMAIL.COM.
Saat pian vastauksen, jos sähköpostiosoite oli oikein.


In English...
'Most moving' Tradi in the City of Vaasa!

Bring GEO-eyes with you!
No need to search near the street!
No special tools needed!

The Police force of Vaasa is watching over this Geocache! So if you have recently robbed a bank, stolen some log sheets or you should be wanted by Interpol for any other reason, you might want to reconsider to come and find this geocache without a proper disguise. ;-)

Inside the 'container' you will find 3 red characters. You can use them to send an email to receive info about the hot history of XXL.
E.g. if the 3 red characters were ABC, please send an email to ABC.GEOCACHE.XXL@GMAIL.COM.
You will receive an answer within a couple of minutes if the email address was correct.
