Geocache Description:


Denne steinen ble båret hit fra fjæra av Eidis Hansen for litt over 200 år siden.

Etter en fisketur i Finnmark drakk Eidis opp all alkohol han hadde hjemme i Balsfjorden. Fortsatt tørst rodde han til Tromsø, og oppsøkte en kjøpmann i håp om å få kjøpt brennevin. Han ble nektet servering da kjøpmannen mente han allerede hadde konsumert nok alkohol.

Sint og sur gikk Eidis ned i fjæra og hentet denne steinen. Den ble plassert foran døra til butikken - skulle ikke han få kjøpt alkohol skulle heller ingen andre få. Da ingen andre klarte å flytte steinen, inngikk kjøpmannen et forlik med Eidis. Han fjernet steinen foran døra og fikk gratis brennevin fra kjøpmannen.

Logg av cache: Ta et bilde av en valgfri kroppsdel (du trenger ikke vise ansiktet ditt) og steinen, som legges ved loggen.

This stone was carried here from the shore by Eidis Hansen just over 200 years ago.

After a fishing trip in Finnmark, Eidis drank all the alcohol he had at home in the Balsfjord. Still thirsty, he rowed to Tromsø, visited a merchant in the hope of buying liquor. He was denied serving when the merchant believed he had consumed enough alcohol already.

Stubborn and sour Eidis went down to the shore and fetched this stone. It was placed in front of the door to the store - should he not buy alcohol, no one else should either. When no one else was able to move the stone, the merchant and Eidis came to an agreement. He removed the stone in front of the door and received free liquor from the merchant.

Task: Take a picture from any part of your body (you dont have to show your face) and the stone, and include the picture in the log.

Dieser Stein wurde vor ca 200 Jahren vom Strand hier hin getragen von Eidis Hansen.

Nach einem langen tag auf seinem fischerboot in der Finnmark hatte Eidis seinen ganzen alkohol ausgetrunken den er zuhause hatte in Balsfjorden. Immernoch durstig er mit seinem boot nach Tromsø um mehr alkohol. Da der verkaeufer meinte das Eidis schon zu betrunken sei wurde ihm nicht erlaubt mehr alkohol zu kaufen.

Stink sauer lief Eidis an den strand und trug diesen stein zu dem laden in dem er alkohol kaufen wollte und legte ihn vor die tuere. Wenn er nichts mehr bekommt dan sollten die anderen auch nicht bekommen. Da es niemand schaffte den stein vor der tuere zu entfernen wurden Eidis und der verkaufer sich einig. Eidis trug den stein weg und bekam daufer etwas alkohol umsonst.

Logg cache: Mach ein bild von einem koerpertail deiner wahl und dem stein (gesicht muss nicht mit drauf sein) und lege das bild zum logg.
