Geocache Description:

Cache is located in an abandoned USSR army base in the forest.

For more than half a century USSR army was present in Latvia. It moved out only a little over decade ago, leaving the ruins of its buildings behind all over the country. This forest, not far from Riga, is full with ruins of abandoned military buildings.
The cache was placed on March 25, the memorial day of victims of communist regime, sent to Siberia in 1949.

The army base is accessible by car, and you can drive as close as some 300m to the cache. The cache is a glass jar containing a logbook, pencil, pen and an ice-fishing tool attached outside of the jar.
