Geocache Description:

Under kriget flydde ortsborna ut till den då täta Kalapääskogen. De gömde sig på en holme i Teiniemossen (numera mycket mindre pga utdikning) för att vänta ut ryssarna. Tyvärr var några unga killar alltför nyfikna så de sökte sig till hemgården, trots nyfallen snö, och ryssarna följde deras spår till gömstället. De brände ner holmen och alla som inte hann fly.


During the war locals fled into the much wilder Kalapää forrest and hid on Teiniemossen at a island (the swamp is nowadays much smaller cause of forrestusage) to wait untill the Russians left. Unfortunately some young boys were curious and went to their homes, even though the snow had just fallen, so the russians could follow their footprints back to the hidingspot. They burned down the island all everyone that didn't flee.


Sodan aikana, pakeni paikalliset ulos Kalapäämetsään. He olivat piilossa saarella Teiniemossen (nyt paljon vähemmän johtuen kuivatus) odottamaan ulos venäläisille. Valitettavasti jotkut nuoret pojat liian uteliaita kuin ne tiensä kotitilan huolimatta uuden lumessa, ja venäläiset seurasivat jäljet piilopaikan. Ne paloi saaren ja kaikki, jotka eivät voineet paeta.
