[quote]
As the cache owner, you are also responsible for physically checking your cache periodically, and especially when someone reports a problem with the cache (missing, damaged, wet, etc.). You may temporarily disable your cache to let others know not to hunt for it until you have a chance to fix the problem. This feature is to allow you a reasonable time – [b]normally a few weeks[/b] – in which to arrange a visit to your cache. In the event that a cache is not being properly maintained, or [b]has been temporarily disabled for an extended period of time, we may archive the listing[/b].

It may be difficult to fulfill your maintenance obligations if you place a cache while traveling on vacation or otherwise outside of your normal caching area. These caches may not be published unless you are able to demonstrate an acceptable maintenance plan. It is not uncommon for caches to go missing, areas to be cleared, trails to be blocked or closed, objects used for multi-cache or puzzles to be moved or removed, etc. [b]Your maintenance plan must allow for a quick response to reported problems.[/b]

Como owner, se tiver planos para recolocar a cache, por favor, contacte-me por [url=http://www.geocaching.com/email/?u=sup3rfm]e-mail[/url].

Lembro que o "desarquivamento" de uma cache, e a sua eventual consequente reactivação, passa pelo mesmo processo de análise como se fosse uma nova cache, com todas as implicações que as guidelines indicam.

Se no local existe algum container, por favor recolha-o a fim de evitar que se torne lixo (geolitter).

Abraço e obrigado pela sua contribuição.

Geocache Description:




topo do farol

[PT] Farol de Aveiro

O farol de Aveiro é o mais alto de Portugal e dos maiores na Europa. Construído entre 1885-1893, foi projectado por um autodidacta que levou de vencida os onze engenheiros que apresentaram plantas e maquetas. A sua inauguração foi levada a cabo por Bernardino Machado em 1893, ministro das Obras Públicas. Neste mesmo ano entrou também em funcionamento um sinal sonoro, constituído por uma trompa HOLMES, funcionando a ar comprimido.

Inicialmente, a principal fonte luminosa era obtida por incandescência do vapor do petróleo; só em 1950 o sistema iluminante passou a ser alimentado a energia eléctrica da rede pública, sendo instalada uma lâmpada de 3000W, que foi posteriormente substituída por uma de menor potência (1000W). Em 1990 foi automatizado, funcionando agora com menos intervenção humana.

A escadaria é composta por dois sectores: o primeiro, com 271 degraus, é uma escada em pedra, em forma de caracol; o segundo sector é uma escada metálica, com 20 degraus.

Tem de altura 62 metros, permitindo-lhe projectar os raios de luz a cerca de 23 milhas náuticas.

[En] Aveiro's Lighthouse

Aveiro's lighthouse is the highest in Portugal and one of the highest in Europe. Built between 1885-1893, it was projected by a self made man who won against the other proposals. Its opening was in 1893 and made byBernardino Machado,minister. In this same year, besides the light beam signals, a sonorous signal started functioning.

Initially, the main light source was obtained from petrol. Only in 1950 the lighting system was power with electrical public energy, being installed a lamp of  3000W, that was after replaced by a 1000W one. In 1990 it was automatized working now with less human intervention.

The stairs are composed by two sectors: the first with 271 steps with a snail shape and it's made of stone and the second sector is of only 20 steps and made out of metal.

It's 62 meters high, allowing it to light up to 23 nautical miles.
