  1. Hello to all swedish geocachers, sorry for asking something OT. I love to study maps, for the moment I discover sweden by maps. In the Jämtland area I found a notice in the map saying "4000 ar gamla hällmaln", this palce is at the road 340 between Stängviken and Häggsjön, close to N. Skärvängen / Skärvängssjön. It must be something special / worth a visit. Please tell what it is. Many thanks Alex

  9. hello waymarkers, my name is alex, I´m from germany. At the moment I´m reading a german book about a bicycle trip on the route 66. In this book the meramec caves are mentionend, the owner Les Dill did a special kind of promotion / advertising in the years 1930/40 : in 30 states he asked farmers to paint there sheds close to the highways with an ad / promo for the caves. In the book ( 12 years old ) it´s mentionend that some are still existing and that they are a national symbol. if there are still some it would be good idea to save them in a waymark? what do you think? greetings from germany alex
  10. another c. from my watchlist: --------- 23:30 den 24/6-2006 fik jeg endelig lejlighed til fysisk at besøge dette pragtfulde sted. Cachen er logget virtuelt for længe siden - men nu blev den endelig "færdig-gjort" Satte geocacher kollega Gade af - da han længe har ønsket at overnatte under åben himmel på dette sted - inden har om få dage fylder 50. Dette blev så anledningen til et længe ønsket besøg. ----- can someone do a translation please!? rgds alex
  11. thank you very much!
  12. hello suomi, I have this cache on my watchlist: Location: Finland 2JMT found Old fuel storage cave (Archived) (Traditional Cache) at 6/23/2006 The last log was only written in suomi, can someone do a translation in english or german please? -------------------- Mitä ihmettä ! Minä kyllä löysin purkin ja muistaakseni OptiQ oli viimeisin kävijä sillä paperilla noin yhdeksän kuukautta sitten. Itseasiassa purkki (musta filmipurkki) löytyi varsin helposti. GPS Pyöritti hieman mutta kun luolan suuaukko näkyi niin silloin ei ollut epäselvyyttä minne mennä. Oven eteen oli kammettu kaksi hirveä kokoista kiveä, joten sinne ei ihan heppoisin järjestelyin ole asiaa. TNL= 2 ZAR (Etelä-Afrikan 2 randin kolikko) --------------- Thanks in advance. alex

  18. hello scandinavia, I´m planning a trip to lake Inari, when studding the map, I saw close to Inari the nationalpark ovre pasvik. But it seems to be difficult to go there. Is it possible to go there via RUS border Nellim / Virtaniemi -> Janiskoski / Nautsi -> Nyrud? The maps I have are not very detailed. Is there a road ( I will come by motorbike )? Someone any ideas about this area? regards alex
  19. hello Waymarking-fans, I read a lot about new proposals, but I would apprciate if you also put at least one picture of thing you propose. so also no-english-speaker are able to understand, what you propose. thanks for cooperation. alex p.s. in germany we say : a picture says more then 1000 words!
  20. found it at n 45-01-453 / e 004-52-531 nearly every parking place on a highway in europe has a name. this is named "latitude" = wide degree a really rare name for a parking place! the red line trough the sign means-> end of parking place!
  21. what about lost bridges, in germay you find some bridges wich where built before the highway came, but then the h-way never came. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...10-4ff18140f57f an extra catagory for bridges or incl. lostroads?
