Geocache Description:

Kniven er ei vindfløy som ble satt opp i 1860-åra - eksakt når er noe usikkert. Selskabet for Aalesund Byes Vel, eller Byselskapet, finansierte vindfløya, og den skal ha blitt satt opp av optikus Nils Svabø.

Kniven ble nedmontert av okkupasjonsmakten under krigen, men satt opp igjen etter freden på samme plassen den var montert tidligere.

Cachen inneholder kun logg. Ta med egen blyant

Cachen ble lagt ut av *houdini* som i desember 2006 reiste langs kysten med hurtigruteskipet MS Midnatsol. *houdini* kalte cacher The Sign, og mente den var den tredje gevinsten når du først fant den.
Det er usikkert hva som var de to første; 1. Å komme til Aalesund ? 2. Få oppleve usikten fra Kniven? 3. Finne cachen?

Det er opp til hver enkelt å bestemme! God tur! Nyt utsikten!

Kniven, The Wind vane

“Kniven “ , The Knife”, was placed at the site during the 1860’s. The wind vane was disassembled by the germans during WW2.

The cache contains a log-sheet. PBYOP

The cache was placed by a german geocacher *houdini* i desember 2006 during his journey With the hurtigruteship MS Midnatsol. The cache was first named “The Sign” and *houdini* described it as the third reward for those who manager to get up there. I am not sure what the first and second were: 1. To get to Aalesund? 2.To experience the view from “The Knife”? 3. To find the cache?

It is up to You to decide!!! Have a nice trip! Enjoy the view!!
