Geocache Description:



For the story behind Pimp my Pump crew, all references, info, water pumps, and projects check Pimp my Pump: The Headquarters geocache, all the PmP news and a complete list of all pimped pumps will be there, up to date. Also, paint on the pumps, and especially on the floor, unfortunately deteriorates with time, so the pumps can be rather different looking than their pictures in the listing...

EN: It is becoming difficult to track all the different coats and repimps of this hidden pump. To my knowledge, the pump was initially pimped in the LOVE theme, full of hearts of various colors. After a while, when Pharrell Williams' song „Happy“ raided the charts, it was repimped in similar, HAPPY theme. . Later, it was repainted into pink ribbon theme, which is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness. Finally, as of few months ago, I found out that it got the Jimi Hendrix look.
Not long ago before that, I have changed the hiding place, to make it more difficult. With all the repimping going on, it is difficult to track all the changes. I decided to archive the old listing, and publish a completely new cache here, mostly for the reason that the hiding place changed (and increased in difficulty), so this way, even the people who found it long time ago can look for it again, on a new place. Apologies to people who found it in the last few months (since I moved it), they won’t have any problems, and they will have another found cache to add to their account.

Although Jimi Hendrix's mainstream career lasted only for 4 years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music. He recorded only 3 studio albums before he died on drug consumption consequences, in 1970. He was only 28 years old.

HR: Pomalo postaje teško pratiti sve faze i različite “repimpove” ove skrivene pumpe. Koliko ja pratim, isprva je bila ofarbana u LOVE temu, puna raznobojnih srca. Nakon nekog vremena, kad je pjesma „Happy“ Pharrella Williamsa harala top listama, prefarbana je u sličnu, HAPPY temu. Nakon toga, došao je na red na svijest o borbi protiv raka dojke, i roza vrpcu. Na kraju, prije koji mjesec, otkrio sam da je pumpa dobila Jimi Hendrix izgled.
Nedugo prije toga, bio sam promijenio mjesto gdje je cache skriven, čime je postao teži za naći. Uz sva silna farbanja, bilo je teško sve to pratiti i u listingu. Odlučio sam arhivirati stari listing i postaviti potpuno novi cache ovdje, najviše iz razloga jer se mjesto gdje je cache promijenilo (i poraslo u težini), tako da ovako i ljudi koji su cache našli prije dosta vremena ga mogu doći ponovno tražiti, na novom mjestu. Isprike svima koji su ga našli u zadnjih par mjeseci (otkad sam ga pomaknuo), oni će znati gdje ga treba tražiti, ali će bar imati novi „found“ za pridodati svom geocaching accountu.

Iako je značajnija karijera Jimi Hendrix-a trajala samo 4 godine, smatra ga se za jednog od najutjecajnijeg električnog gitarista u povijesti pop muzike. Snimio je samo 3 studijska albuma prije nego što je umro od posljedica konzumiranja droge 1970-e godine, u dobi od samo 28 godina.

Za priču o Pimp my Pump ekipi, reference, informacije, ofarbane gradske pumpe, i ostale projekte provjerite Pimp my Pump: The Headquarters geocache, sve PmP vijesti te kompletna recentna lista spimpanih pumpi će biti tamo. Isto tako, boje na pumpama, a pogotovo na podu, nažalost blijede s vremenom, pa pumpe mogu izgledati dosta drugačije nego njihove slike u listingu...
