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 133 of 139:
On this day I had no plans, and as it was dark most of the day, my day/night cycle got completely switched and at 2 AM I was still programming and solving some mystery caches.
And then suddenly a new geocache got published - GC4W19Q - Oulun Linja-autoasema. So I wenrt there, met Kapeka and togetjher we went for a few other new geocaches that got published recently.

Unfortunately I didn't manage to get to the University on time to solve and find this geocache myself. So Kapeka took me to the final as we were nearby.
I have seen the university from many angles, and even partially from inside (thanks to the traditional cache there), so this was some kind of bonus to it all.
Since the geocache is already archived, I will upload photos to the log.
Kiitos Kätköstä / Thanks for the cache

infoA multi-cache ("multiple") involves two or more locations, the final location being a physical container. There are many variations, but most multi-caches have a hint to find the second cache, and the second cache has hints to the third, and so on. An offset cache (where you go to a location and get hints to the actual cache) is considered a multi-cache.
