Geocache Description:

Community Cache

Traditional cache quite near Helsinki. The walk from the parking place is less than 1 km.

This cache was placed by me and my two friends. It is our first cache.

The place is near the intersection of two roads, Itäväylä and Kehä III. There is a small parking place near it.

Although I am not sure, I think the area was a fortification in the first world war. It was never finished or used in its original purpose.

There are two caves digged in the rock right next to the cache. These caves are quite deep and you should be careful when walking next to them.

Have fun,

Simopekka, Petri and Raine

EDIT: The cache has been upgraded with a new box and a new kog book!

And by the way... there is another cave which is more complete, north east from the cave.

Some notes added 19th Sep, 2008

This was the first geocache in Vantaa, when it was placed in 2002 by caching pioneers Simopekka, Petri and Raine. It'a a pity that the impending merger with Helsinki will capture not only Vikkulla village, but also the landmark cache from Vantaa.

Some people have wondered both the hiding place and hint. They are not what most cachers of the day are used to. However, longish hint and "illogical" hiding place are echoes from the dawn of geocaching. In those days pratices and customs were not settled and hiders had to operate without precedents.
