Geocache Description:

This cache, The Ruin ,
is a part of the Göteborg Park Picnic Tour (GPPT)!

The Ruin, is probably the oldest remains of a building in the Göteborg area.

To be able to find the GPPT Final cache, you have to gather clues!
You will find those clues in 10 caches in 10 different Parks in Göteborg!

This short two stage multi takes you to a small gorgeous, totally unknown, park!

In the park, at the coordinates, you will arrive to a place where you will find a paper with the coordinates for the final stage. Between the first stage and the final, you have to make an imaginary historic walk for almost 1 000 years!

For more information about Göteborg Park Picnic Tour mystery cache visit GPPT Final!

The cache is a small brown plastic tube
and had the following content from start:

  • Cache log
  • Pencil
  • A picture of my Smashing GeoCaching Dogs (the SGCD) (NB, not a trading object! If you want a picture of the SGCD send me an e-mail and I will send you a picture!)
  • One green paper slip, with a clue
  • One white paper slip, with facts about the location
In the cache, you will find a green paper slip, with a coordinate figure and a clue which is necessary to write down, to be able to find the GPPT Final! (Please, don’t remove the slip with the clue!)

I'm sure there are very few geocachers who has visited this Park before, or even knew about it!
