Who is St. Urho???

I guess you're curious about the name?

The legend of St. Urho is not the product of one person, but of many. The original character is usually traced to Virginia and Minnesota in USA, but like most good legends, there have been many voices in creating the history of St. Urho. Please take the time to read very interesting details about this mythical Finnish-American hero.

St. Urho — Legendary Patron Saint of Finland

Doc-Dean's treasure is big, when compared to other finnish caches. It is filled with goodies from USA and also a really nice travel bug - Locust Valley Scooby. There's also something strange in the cache - perhaps it's the ghost of St. Urho. You can't see it, but you may hear it...

The cache is located somewhere in the island of Riuttasaari. Riuttasaari and nearby islands is the outdoor recreation area of the Town of Valkeakoski. There is several fireplaces, so you can fry up sausages or whatever you want. Although the cache is on the island you can walk or bike in there. Dogs are not allowed in the area. In summer, you can also swim there, and there is also restrooms available.
