Geocache Description:


Letterboks:
Her skal du oppsøke de oppgitte koordinatene. Så skal du videre innover i hulen til du finner boksen. Denne typen kombinerer en mysteriecache og bruk av stempel. Stempelet er ment å forbli i cachen og brukes av geocachere til å registrere besøket.


For å finne cachen så må du gå under jorden og ta til venstre. Derfra følger du veien helt inn til du møter et punkt der takhøyden blir merkbart lavere. Se etter den grønne boksen i det området.


Her på Ytre-Elgsnes er det funnet spor etter mennesker helt tilbake til steinalderen. Det er blant annet funnet flere gravhauger fra jernalderen. I den ene flatmarksgraven ble det funnet et kvinneskjelett. Kvinnen lå på ryggen med tre runde bronsespenner på brystet. Ved hver skulder lå ei bronsenål. Hennes halskjede besto av 31 grønne og 39 røde glassperler. I tillegg lå der 180 hvite perler av hvalrosstann. Kvinnen hadde fått med seg en beinkam, en jernsaks, en sigd, en nøkkel, et spinnehjul og en kniv over i dødsriket.

Letterbox:
Go to the the posted coordinates. Enter the cave and find the box inside. This cache combines a mysterycache and the use of a rubber stamp. The rubber stamp is not a trade item but intended to stay within the cache.



To find the cache you have to go underground and turn left. From there you follow the road all the way in until you meet a point where the ceiling height becomes noticeably lower. Look for the green box in that area..


Here at Ytre-Elgsnes there are traces of people dating back to the Stone Age. Among other things, several burial mounds have been found from the Iron Age. In one of the flat ground graves, a female skeleton was found. The woman was lying on her back with three round bronze buckles on her chest. At each shoulder was a bronze needle. Her necklace consisted of 31 green and 39 red glass beads. In addition, there were 180 white pearls of walrus teeth. In addition the women had gotten with her a comb made of bone, iron scissors, a sickle, a key, a spinning wheel and a knife to bring to the Underworld.
