Pirmā autobusa galapunkts. Viena no Rīgas mierīgākajām vietām, ja neņem vērā riepu deldētājus, kuri izklaidējas pa asfaltēto apli. Kā noprotams, atbraukt var ar pirmo autobusu.

Daudzstāvu ēkas sākotnēji celtas blakus esošā pansionāta darbiniekiem, pārējais bija priežu meži un kāpas. Priežu mežu un kāpu vietā tagad ir jaunas ielas, jaunas mājas. Nedaudz tālāk esošajam Mašēnu ezeram vairs nevar piekļūt, žogs - varbūt viss ezers kļuvis par privātīpašumu.

Tagad pirmais autobuss brauc pa Brīvības bulvāri. Veci ļauži stāsta, ka kādu laiku pirmais autobuss esot braucis kaut kur pa http://osm.org/go/0wMgXUlBM--?layers=N&m= un gar pasta nodaļu - tur tagad vairs izbraukt nevar, un arī pasta nodaļas nav.

Punktu apraksti tikai angliski.

The end of bus line number one. One of the most secluded places in Riga, excluding the racers who destroy rubber on the paved circle. As one might guess, bus line number one will take you here.

The apartment buildings were initially built to house employees of the nearby assisted-living centre, surrounded by pine forests and dunes. Pine forests and dunes have been replaced by new streets and new houses. The Mašēnu lake, situated a bit further away, isn't even accessible anymore - maybe somebody now owns the whole lake.

Bus number one now takes a fairly simple route, through the Brīvības (Freedom) boulevard, and then taking the Berģu street. Old people say that there was a time when the bus was taking aroute somewhere along http://osm.org/go/0wMgXUlBM--?layers=N&m= and a post office - of which neither one can pass that road, nor there's a post office anymore.

1. From the posted coordinates, go ~ 40m south-east.
There should be a metal gate that won't lead you anywhere.
A = the count of X-like metallic structures in one side of the gate (both sides have the same number)

2. N 56° 58.(56*A+10) E 24° 18.(50*A+3)
You'll arrive at a shelter that can take you to places.
B = the count of the freestanding (not adjacent to any wall) poles of the shelter

3. N 56° 58.(A*B*(A+1)+(A*2)-(B/2)) E 24° 18.(A*(the answer to life, the Universe and everything)-B+13)
You'll arrive at a fountain that gets some water only when it rains. Stand facing the fountain and the adjacent building (90 degrees against the front wall). There is a horizontal metal pipe in the fountain. If the fountain was a clock, would the time be:
* 12-15 - C = 43
* 15-18 - C = 53
* 18-21 - C = 63
* 21-24 - C = 73

4. N 56° 58.(A*C+B+1) E 24° 18.(A*C+(B*2)-1)
You'll arrive at a concrete object with round concrete objects on top of it that looks like a Lego piece. A large one.
D = the count of the metal loops on the top of whole concrete surface, including the round objects

5. N 56° 58.(C*D+(A*B)+D) E 24° 18.((the year when Latvia was occupied at the beginning of WWII)/2-(A^2))
You'll arrive at crossroads and might have to play a guitar.
E = The count of the birch trees on the corners of the crossroads

6. N 56° 58.(A*(D-B)*(A-B+E)+(E/2)) E 24° 18.((A+D+E)*A*E+(B*C)+D)
You'll arrive at a metallic gate with a pool. Sort of.
F = the number of the round vertical bars in the top part of the smaller (pedestrian) gate

7. N 56° 58.(A*C+((E+B)*F)-1) E 24° 18.((I would walk ... miles)+(F*((B*D)+E)))
You'll arrive at a place that is fenced off to public now.
G = gating the face... facing the gate, the number of angled poles in the front section of the fence to the left of the gate

8. N 56° 58.(C*F*G+B) E 24° 18.(D*G*(B*F+A-G)+(B*2))
You'll arrive at a street that used to shun visitors. Look somewhere nearby for yellow digits in the form NNNN-N-N. This stage is a bit more tricky than all the others.
H = product (multiplication) of the first four digits divided by the product of the last two digits.

Final: N 56° 58.(F*(H-D-E)+C-A-G) E 24° 18.((A*C)+C+F)
