Geocache Description:

Kätkö on kahden pisteen multikätkö. Loppupisteellä voit nähdä osan sodanaikaista panssariestettä. Kätkön alkupisteellä UVvalovaatimus. This a multicahe of 2 places. In the end you may see part of wartime antitank defence. The starting point-UVlight needed.


Panssariesteet ovat osa Salpalinjasta,joka rakennettiin talvisodanjälkeen 1940-1944 itärajan läheisyyteen. Salpalinjan pituus Virolahdelta Savukoskelle pituutta 1200km. Täälläkin satuimme törmäämään kesällä suuriin kiviin, jotka paljastuivat osaksi salpalinjaa. Talvella paikalla on moottorikelkkareitti- joten varovaisuutta kätköilijät!  Lisää Salpalinjasta - Wikipediassa.  Oma kyna mukaan!

The construction of the Salpa Line began in the end of the Winter War in 1940. At first, volunteers worked there—then people ineligible for the war service were mobilized. The maximum number of workers, on site was near 35 000 in the spring of 1941. After the beginning of the Continuation War on 25 June 1941 the fortification work was stopped, pillboxes and bunkers were stripped of armaments, which were sent to the front. As the tide of the conflict turned, and the front began to approach the prewar Finnish borders in early 1944, the work on the Salpa Line resumed and continued until the end of the Continuation War on 4 September 1944. (Wikipedia)  Here we suddenly found big stones in the wood- a part of Salpa Line. Now in the wintertime there is a snowmobiletrack- beware when caching! BYOP
