Geocache Description:


Kätkön nimi tulee siitä että koko kätkökierros on autolla ajettavissa. Konginkankaalla on myös suuri autourheilua harrastava porukka.

IN FINNISH:
Konginkangas on entinen kunta Keski-Suomessa Keiteleen länsirannalla; maa-ala 298,6 neliökilometriä ja asukasluku noin 1600 asukasta. Elinkeinoista etusijalla maa- ja metsätalous. Kirkonkylällä asukkaita on n. 470. Konginkankaan vanhan puukirkon on suunnitellut J. Kuorikoski ja se on valmistunut v. 1866. Konginkangas liitettiin Äänekoskeen vuonna 1993.

The name of the cache means that the round can be made by a car. There's also car racing team "Konginkangas' UA" in Konginkangas.

IN ENGLISH:
Konginkangas was earlier an independent community until it joined Äänekoski in 1993. It lies in the western coast of Keitele, in the central Finland. There's 298,6 km2 land and the population is about 1600. The wooden church of Konginkangas was designed by J. Kuorikoski and it was built in 1866.

Point 1.

The coordinates above lead you to a sign. Count all the A-letters in the sign. That's how you get letter A.

Point 2.

N62° 46.680 E025° 48.465. You are now standing in front of a small museum of Konginkangas. In which year was it built? That's how you get letter B.
On your way to the museum check how many kilometres are there from Konginkangas to Sumiainen. This is letter C.

Point 3.

N62° 46.666 E025° 48.451. One of the church's windows has a pattern that looks like a flower. How many "petals" does it have? That's how you get letter D

Now you have to do some calculations to get to the point 4.

N62° 46.xxx E025° 48.yyy

xxx= B/2-222
yyy= A*C+193

You are in front of an old building made of bricks. How many round windows do you see when you stand on the road? That's how you get letter E.

Now you just have to solve these calculation and you'll have the coordinates to the cache:

N62° 47.www E025° 49.zzz

www= B-(C*E+A*D)-864-www
zzz= A*E-C*2-13
