Geocache Description:

LV

Slēpnis jūs izvedīs pastaigā pa vienu no mazām un neparastām Rīgas ielām - Kaķasēkļa dambi. Ceru, jums izdosies sajust šīs nomaļās vietas īpatnējo šarmu.


EN

This cache will take to a walk along one of the small and unusual streets of Riga - Kaķasēkļa dambis. I hope you will get to feel the intriguing charm of this remote street. 




LV

Kaķasēkļa dambis atrodas uz robežas starp Mazo Vējzaķsalu un Eksportostu. No vienas puses Kaķasēkļa dambim atrodas Rīgas konteineru termināla teritorija, no otras ir Mazās Vējzaķsalas apbūvētā daļa. 

Posms 1 - Industriālais Kaķasēkļa dambis: Pastaiga sākas pie Rīgas konteineru termināla ieejas. Šeit jāatbild uz jautājumu, cik atstarojošu sarkanbaltu elementu ir uz žoga pa kreisi no vārtiem?

Pēc atbildes uz jautājumu, dodieties pa nelielu ceļu uz otro posmu, kas jums parādīs šo apkārtni no otras puses. 

Posms 2 - Apdzīvotais Kaķasēkļa dambis: Kaķasēkļa dambja ne-fasādes puse. Šeit jāatbild uz jautājumu, cik balstu ("kāju") ir uz krustojuma esošajam elektrības stabam?

Dodieties tālāk pa lielāko ielu atpakaļ uz Kaķasēkļa dambi, un ejiet pa to uz priekšu līdz nākamajai šķērsielai, kas jūs aizvedīs uz trešo un pēdējo posmu

Posms 3 - Nepieradinātais Kaķasēkļa dambis: Mazās Vējzaķsalas daļa, kur Rīga vēl nav iepletusies, un Daugavas vecupe. Šeit jāatrod paliels akmens ar plakanu slīpu virsmu. Uz kuru pusi ir vērsts tā slīpums (zemākā puse)? Uz vecupi = 7; uz pretējo pusi = 9

Pēc visu vērtību atrašanas aprēķiniet gala vietas koordinātes un dodieties uz pastaigas galapunktu.

EN

Kaķasēkļa dambis is located on the border of Little Vējzaķsala and Eksportosta (Export port). On one side of the street there is the territory of Riga Container Terminal, on the other side there is the residential part of Little Vējzaķsala.

Stage 1 - Industrial Kaķasēkļa dambis: The walk starts at the end of Kaķasēkļa dambis, at enterance to Riga Container Terminal. Here you have to find answer to question: How many rectengular white/red reflecting signs are there on the fence on the left side of the gate?

After finding the answer, walk by the small road towards the second stage, which will show you the other side of this neghborhood.

Stage 2 - Residential Kaķasēkļa dambis: the other side of the Kaķsēkļa dambis residential area. Here you have to find answer to question: How many supports ("legs") does the electricity pole on the intersection have?

Keep walking along the largest of street back towards Kaķasēkļa dambis and go forth to the next sidestreet, which will take you to the third and the last stage.

Stage 3 - Wild Kaķasēkļa dambis: The part of Little Vējzaķsala, which Riga has not yet spread into, and a tiny oxbow lake (a pond, rather). Here you must find a large-ish rock with sloped flat top. To which side is it sloped (where's the lowest side)? Towards pond = 7; towards other side = 9

After finding all values, calulate the location of the final location, and proceed to the end of the walk.
