Geocache Description:

Ein Virtual Cache zu Ehren eines Soester Originals!
A virtual cache to honor a typical/original character of Soest!

DE: Ein Soester Original

Der typische Westfale gilt als bodenständig, strebsam und ruhig. Manch ein Rheinländer würde den Westfalen schlicht als stur bezeichnen. Die Wahrheit liegt wohl irgendwo dazwischen...
Wer aber wissen möchte, welche Eigenschaften einen original Soester ausmachen, sei dieser Ort ans Herz gelegt. Denn hier lebte ein waschechtes "Soester Original", das noch heute Teil vieler Erzählungen ist.

Beantworte folgende Fragen per E-Mail oder Message Center:
1. Wie heißt das Soester Original?
2. Weswegen war die Person ein Soester Original (zwei Gründe sind auf der Tafel explizit genannt)?
3. Mach ein Foto von dir und / oder deinem GPS-Gerät vor dem Wohnhaus des Soester Origninals (jedoch ohne lesbare Gedenktafel!) und lade es mit deinem Log hoch.

EN: a typical character of Soest

The typical Westphalian is believed to be indigenous, ambitious and calm. Some Rhinelanders would say the Westphalian is a stubborn character. The truth lies in between...
For those of you who want to know what are typical characteristics of an original citizen of Soest, this spot is highly recommended. Here in this house once lived an original/typical character of Soest, that is still part of lots of stories told by the locals.

Answer these questions via email oder message center:
1. What is the name of the typical character of Soest?
2. Why was this person meant to be a typical character of Soest (there are two reasons mentioned on the plaque)? If you do not understand german, simply send me the text of the plaque.
3. Take a photo of you and / or your GPS device at the house (be careful not to show the plaque!) and upload it with your log.
