The idea of this cache is great! I kind of decided that I will do this cache some day even if it was the only locationless cache I'll ever do. This is the first locationless cache I've logged.
I was surprised to notice that BAJA Clan's longitude runs through some places that are familiar to me. I decided to visit on a small island whose name seems to be Björkgrundet (Swedish for Birch Ground). There is a sauna owned by Särkisalo municipality. [URL=http://www.sarkisalo.fi/perustietoa/kuvia/]Särkisalo[/URL] (Finby in Swedish) is in South-Western Finland.

The road administration is planning to replace the ferry by a bridge. They have taken some aerial photos of the same island: [URL=http://www.tieh.fi/turku/lossil/fin/ulkoluoto/fotot/ul_1jpg.html]A1[/URL] [URL=http://www.tieh.fi/turku/lossil/fin/ulkoluoto/fotot/ul_2jpg.html]A2[/URL] [URL=http://www.tieh.fi/turku/lossil/fin/ulkoluoto/fotot/ul_4jpg.html]A3[/URL]. Zoomable jpegs and some Quicktime panoramas are available in those pages, but I haven't tried them yet.
I took the photos with a camera phone on 27th of December 2004. Thanks!
Edit: Added one more map link and the name of the island.
