Geocache Description:

This is the the 16th cache in the series of alphabet caches. The purpose of this cache is to eventually create a series of caches from A to Z. The next cache in the series is Alphabet Q - Quiz (GCMZ85) by Hessut.

The given coordinates are bogus. To find this cache you need to visit the cache Alphabet O - Ornithology (GCMTW0) first. There you can find the values A and B. Your next task is to connect the correct poet and a quote from his/her works. The poets are denoted below with letters a..j and the quotes are each given a number. If you are totally lost, the names of the authors are listed - in no particular order - in the hidden hint.

7 Ministeriö antoi luvan siirtää taivasta kaksi metriä taaksepäin.
8 Sillä piikkikuoren alla siilin hellyys piili.
1 Täällä on taisteltu puolesta maamme,
tällä me vieläkin taistella saamme.
0 Keskiyön enkeli illasta aamuun
ulvoo kanssani.
5 Minä kerron teille sateen kalpean kuun tarinoita.
0 Mykkinä nousemme raunion alta.
9 Miehen sydämessä ei rakkaus kuole koskaan.
4 Siinä sinä myyt terveyttä Hakaniemen eliitille.
0 Illan tullen viime kerta
juotiin tilkka ihmisverta.
9 Sillä ilta on kaunis ja tyttö on valmis.

The reference point for the cache is:
N 60° ab.cde'
E 024° fg.hij'

The true bearing from that point to the cache is A degrees and the distance to the cache is 100*B meters.

To guarantee the continuity of the series, the following rules apply:

  • The first finder of this cache must place a cache corresponding to the next letter in the alphabet within two weeks from the find. The cache must also be named like "Alphabet ? - ?...", where ? is the next letter and ?... is any name beginning with that letter.
  • The next cache must be placed within the capital city region. That is, within the limits of Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa or Kauniainen.
  • The cache description must be constructed so that the cache can only be found by finding the previous alphabet cache. The preferred way is to write the final coordinates of the cache into the log book of the previous cache.
  • These rules must apply also to the rest of the caches. Please copy these rules to the description.

Please don't rush yourself to be the first finder if you can't quickly put up the next cache. There are plenty of geocachers in the capital region who can.
