Because of many circumstances that I couldn't influence I got 4 years behind in the logging of Geocaches. In the meantime the logging has split into 3 parallel branches, so that I could keep up with more recent geocaches, while the oldest streak of unlogged caches got older every day (about half of the geocaches found are already archived, but fortunately I got photos of every cache, so if there is ever any doubt, I can send photoproof).
This batch of unlogged Geocaches is actually my first stay in Finland where I got as a student through Erasmus system for 4 months. During my stay in Finland I found exactly 550 caches (116 on a trip to Turku and the rest around Oulu). Since I bought a bike for easier travelling, I got everywhere in Oulu by bike or by walking, travelling 1572.219 km in total and reaching many interesting and hidden places.
I have assembled a photomap from my tracklogs (slightly censored) here:
Even though it has been already 4 years, this stay in Finland was the best part of my life so far. Finland is an amazing country with all the cold weather, ice, snow, darkness, revontulet, Metal music, sauna, birches, mushrooms, swamps, lakes, makkara and so on. I happen to feel there more at home than in Czech Republic, so eventually I began learning Finnish language and hopefully one day I will be able to move there and work there for a few years.
By the time I was leaving Oulu, I had found vast majority of all Geocaches in Oulu, including some of the most difficult D5 and T5 caches. It was great fun, staying there, meeting local geocachers at events or searching for caches together. Hope to see you one day again.


Day 85 of 139:
After a long pause I went on a bike trip to the northern part of Oulu again. Main goal was Muukalaisten Koodikone 2, but there were also some special caches along the way. One tradi that I couldn't find last time, and also one new cace published a few days before.

This was the main goal fo this trip. I spent a long time programming an interpreter of this assembler for Muukalaisten Koodikone 1. But here I got only something, not everything. I wasn't sure what is going on, so I needed a bit of help from the owner.
So in the end this mystery was not just about programming, but also psychology. Interesting :D It is definitely a masterpiece.
And the cachebox... Well, found it easily :)
Since the geocache is already archived, I will upload photos to the log.
Kiitos Kätköstä / Thanks for the cache

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
