Geocache Description:

LV Slēpnis pie akmeņa, kurā aizvēsturiskos laikos kāds mēģinājis izgrebt bļodveida padziļinājumu

EN The cache is near a stone, where in ancient times someone has tried to make a bowl shaped hollow


EN The stone is 0.55 m high, 1.22 m long, 1.10 m wide, circumference — 3.30 m. Discovered by Dainis Ozols in 1995. A typical bowl-shaped hollow stone, there are 20 of such stones in Latvia. On its surface there is a bowl-shaped hollow which is 55–65 cm wide, 50 cm long and 0.15 m deep. The depth of the bowl is up to 2.5 cm, diameter 0.30–0.38 m. The bowl has been made rather carelessly and has not been finished. On the sides of the stone there are the grooves typical for the stones with bowl-shaped hollows; they are rather poorly carved though and absent in some parts of the stone sides. 24 grooves can be well felt. Their biggest depth is up to 1 cm, most of them are 0.5 m deep, 3–4 cm wide, around 20 cm long. (A. Grīnbergs, 2010)No recorded folklore materials have been found. The local people cannot tell anything about the site.he bowl-shaped hollow stone lies in a meadow and owners have planted trees around it as well as placed benches and put up an information stand. The site itself is attractive. The cache is of micro type, so bring your own pen.

LV Pļavā ap 200 m no Jēču dzirnavām un ap 100 m no Jēčiem. Netālu atrodas Jēču dzirnavas, to parks un dabas takas. 0,55 m augsts, 1,22 m garš, 1,10 m plats, apkārtmērs — 3,30 m. Atklājis Dainis Ozols 1995. gadā. Tipisks bļodakmens, kādu visā Latvijā ir 20. Tā virsmā atrodas bļodveida dobums, kura platums 55–65 cm, garums 50 cm, dziļums 0,15 m. Bļodas dziļums līdz 2,5 cm, diametrs 0,30–0,38 m. Bļoda diezgan nerūpīgi veidota, nepabeigta. Akmens malās ir bļodakmeņiem raksturīgās sānu rievas, kas gan ļoti vāji iekaltas; daļā akmens sānu nav. Labi sataustāmas ir 24 rievas. Lielākais to dziļums līdz 1 cm, lielākā daļa ir 0,5 m dziļas, platums 3–4 cm, garums ap 20 cm. (A. Grīnbergs, 2010)Pierakstīti folkloras materiāli līdz šim nav atrasti. Vietējie iedzīvotāji nezina neko pastāstīt par objektu. Bļodakmens atrodas pļavā, kur ap to saimnieki iestādījuši kociņus, izvietojuši soliņus un uzstādījuši informatīvo plāksni. Pats objekts pievilcīgs, bet apkārtējā ainava nepievilcīga. Slēpnis ir mikro tipa, paņemiet savu rakstāmo
