Geocache Description:

LAT: Dotajās koordinātēs slēpnis neatrodas! Slēpnis veltīts Kojas upītei (kopējais garums 25 km), tā ir Ventas kreisā krasta pieteka. ENG: This cache is not at the above co-ordinates. Geocache is dedicated to a small river Koja (its total length 25km) flowing into the Venta River.


LAT: Kojas upīte sākas netālu no bijušā kolhoza "Kurzeme" darbnīcām. Par šo upi stāsta, ka tā agrāk bijusi liela. Upei pāri stiepies tilts. Reiz mājās braukuši tirdzinieki no Aizputes, braucis arī kāds večuks ar sievu, krietni iereibuši. Tieši uz tilta veča iesaukusies: "Ratā koja," - jo bijusi iebāzusi kāju ritenī. Vecais, domādams, ka tā ir dziesma, arī saucis: "Rata koja, rata koja, rata koja!" - nemaz nemanīdams, ka sievai kāja pušu. Šie bijuši no kāda tālāka novada atbraukuši. Arī pārējie braucēji traci sadzirdējuši un upi nosaukuši par Koju.

Lai iegūtu slēpņa atrašanās vietas koordinātes N 56°AB.CDE; E 021°FG.HIJ, jānoskaidro dažādu organismu kāju skaits un jāatrisina matemātisks uzdevums.

ENG: Koja River originates not far from the former collective farm ‘Kurzeme’. Legend tells that once the Koja River was much larger than now and it was crossed by a bridge. Once people were going home from Aizpute market, with them also some old man with his wife, both quite drunk. When they crossed the bridge over Koja River, the old lady cried out ‘Leg in a wheel’ (in Latvian - rata koja) as her leg was stuck in the wheel. The old man not noticing accident with his wife’s leg thought that she is singing and also shout out loud ‘Leg in a wheel, leg in a wheel, leg in a wheel!’ Other people hearing this uproar named the river Koja.

To find the location of cache (N 56°AB.CDE; E 021°FG.HIJ), you have to count the number of legs to different organisms and complete the exercise.
