Geocache Description:

Neuvosenniemessä, Kainuun meren ja Ärjänselän rannalla olevan lahonkoivun juurella.
This cache is at the decayed birch at the sea of the Kajana.

Paikan läheisyyteen yksityistien alkuun pääsee autolla. Yksityistietä pitkin, matkaa noin 1,5 km, pääsee autojen kääntöpaikalle. Kätkölle johtaa vanha polku (vaikea löytää) mutta matkaa on vain ~50 m rantaa jossa on muista koivuista erottuva vanha, laho koivu jonka juurella on sini/vihreä kanisteri. Jospa tämä kätkö pysyisi hieman pidempään paikoillaan, edellinen kätkön rasia hävisi. Kätkö on jo löydetty huolimatta virheellisestä paikanmäärityksestä (Magellan 320 oli rikki ja onneksi lopetti toimimasta kokonaan).
To this cage is easy to get by car at the start of the private road. Walking by that road more or less 1,5 km you get to the parking place where you can find the old and small path. To cage you can walk by this small path (hard to find this old path) but the cage is rather near to the place where you can leave your car. Decayed birch at the sea of the Kajana is then easy to find because there is no other similar birshes at the place.
The gage is at the decayed birch and there you can find blue/green canister. First visitors have found this cage as I set the location wrong by my Magellan 320 which was broken and now it is not starting at all. Thanks to all who set the new location as it is now. I ordered new Garmin 60 Csx and when I get it so i can check the location by my self. Thanks.
