Geocache Description:




Under den stora depressionen på 1920-30-talen valde statsmakten att satsa på en omfattande utbyggnad av vägnätet då landets vägnät både behövde rustas och nya vägar byggas. Det var Arbetslöshetskommissionen, som administrerade satsningen och de så kallade AK-vägarna blev ett begrepp som känns igen på sin styva linjeföring med begränsad och ibland dålig anpassning till landskapet. Ibland byggdes vägar även om de egentligen inte behövdes utan syftet var då att hålla de arbetslösa sysselsatta och tjäna några kronor. I skogarna där denna gömma är belägen finns ett helt nät av raka vägar som korsar varandra med 90 graders vinkel. Den väg som idag kallas "Linjen" eller "linjevägen" är en ca 7,5 km lång raksträcka rakt genom skogen.

Gömman består av en 0,4 l plastburk med grått lock i en grön platspåse och innehåller loggbok, penna och lite bytesvaror.

During the depression 1920-1930 and on government authorities decided to invest in a comprehensive extension of the road network when it need to be repaired and new roads needed to be built. It was the unemployment commission (AK) which administrated the investment and the so called AK-roads became a concept which can be recognized by the straight lines. Sometimes roads were built whatever needed or not. The purpose was to keep the unemployed busy and to earn some small money. I the forests where this cache is hidden there is a big road network consisting of straight roads which crosses each other in 90 degree angel. The road that today is called "Linjen" (the Line) or "Linjevägen" (the Line road) is a approx 7,5 km long straight through the forest.

The cache is a 0,4 l plastic box with grey lid, wrapped in a green plastic bag and containing a logbook, a pencil and some trading items.
