Geocache Description:

Place: Lapua, Finland.

N62°58.910 E023°00.881 beside of the road.

In Finland the legendary Route 66 (kantatie 66) from Orivesi to Lapua presents an exquisite route from Häme to the middle of Southern Ostrobothnia.
A country music band called 'Jussi & The Boys' made the Finnish version of the original 'Route 66' song. The 'Route 66' caches are set on the roadside to those placed which are mentioned in the song. The caches are tried to place so that it won't take unreasonably time to find them and they all could be found even by one drive through. As a hint there is a number in every cache. Write down the numbers and formulate new coordinates of them. Using those coordinates you can then find the main cache: Route 66 - Pohojammaa.

Suomessakin legendaariseksi muodostunut 'Route 66' (kantatie 66) välillä Orivesi - Lapua tarjoaa hienon reitin Hämeestä keskelle Etelä-Pohjanmaata.
Jussi & The Boys teki tunnetusta kappaleesta "Route 66" suomalaisen käännösversion "Valtatie 66". Kätköt on sijoitettu tämän tien varteen niille paikkakunnille, jotka tässä laulussa mainitaan. Kätköt on pyritty laittamaan siten, että niiden etsiminen ei veisi kohtuuttomasti aikaa ja ne kaikki voisi löytää jopa yhdellä ajamisella.
Jokaisessa kätkössä on vihjeenä numero. Ota nämä numerot talteen ja muodosta niistä uudet koordinaatit.
Tällä koordinaatilla löytyy pääkätkö: Route 66 - Pohojammaa.


This cache is near the end of Route 66. Differing from the song lyrics, nowadays the road ends to Highway 16 (Valtatie 16, Sininen tie). The cache is about 300 meters from the crossing that ends the road. Now there is a tiny road beside the cache.
To prevent unveiling of this cache, please put the cache as it was and be aware of geomuggles on the road.


Tämä kätkö on lähellä tien 66 loppupäätä. Laulusta poiketen tie päättyy nykyään valtatie 16.een (Sininen tie). Kätkö on n. 300 metrin päässä tien päättävästä risteyksestä.
Nykyään kätkön vieressä menee autolla ajettava tie.
Laitathan kätkön samalla tavalla, ettei se paljastu!
Varo paljastamasta kätköä tiellä kulkeville jästeille!
