fixed eroor in coordinates

As error in coordinates was to big, a have to report this cache as new cache.
4x4 car is recomended or you will have to walk ~2.5 km.
This cache was placed in January 2004, but today I cheched it and it was still there. Cache is plastic box with logbook, pencil and small present in it. You will have to walk 50-250 m (depends on Your car and driving skills). Cache is located 1 m above ground in the roots of pine who has falled to the North direction. It is ~15m from another big pine. Some parts of terrain is muddy, but gumboots are not necessary.

For hardcore off-road enthusiasts I recommend to go directly to Adazhu poligons cache. (visit link)

Additional Hints ( Encrypt )

To see the cache You have to look from South.

Found it quite easy - it is possible to drive by car very close to the cache from NW (~ 100m).

TFTC, no trade.

Found it together with fon_Schmitz, Baiba and Papuass. No problems in comming from Adazu poligons cache by bike in July - almost all way drivable. I imagine this place in spring - then it can be quite challenging.

As we went there in late evening after heavy raining and the evil spirit took us by the hand, we lost the right way. And so we came from NW side about 2.5 km through deep swamp. Noželojami!!! So it was most extreme and hardest cache of our team at all! The cache box is little bit broken.

IN: green reflector
OUT: gloves

Found it in the late evening (9:50PM)...First attempt from the south was unsuccessful-after 300m walking I stopped 100m from cache at the swamp. Second attempt was from the north-after 200m of walking I found the cache easy.
You can go to there by car and don`t even need 4x4 if you know the shortest way:)

Although located in a militar teritory the nature was wild. We experienced the barking of deer, cuckoo, partridges and jays. Thanks RollsLV for the coordinates, we got there by bus!

Easy if approaching from right side (from other it could be really extreme). Curious, how the owner of the cache was able to see the cache from south.

Very nice cache :)
We did some pre-planning before, trying to make route as good as possible. Some car-orienteering (lots of unmapped roads there!). We left the car some 300m from the cache, a little walk and, Yeee, here it is :)

In: nothing
Out: work gloves (thanx!)

btw, Janis got 200 m from the cache by honda civic, so, you don't need offroad car to go there, but gumboats are recomended. If you will go go there by offroad car, probably you will try to go further. don't go there without winch and ropes :)

Found it together with Liiva. Peecis and Anete was there with us. After we found this one, we decided, to move forward to oneother cache which is about 4km from this one. We made 1km forward over waters and around waters over stumps. Then we got stuck in a mud. After an hour of trying to get out with the clutch pedal already under water we started to think about who could come and rescue us. It was 2.30 AM and all we needed was a longer rope. Rescue mission was acomplished by Jaanis - the other owner of this cache. When we got out of mud, we turned around to go back, and on a way back as a large point to this event big branch went trough the radiator and our russian offroad mobile started to die slowly. We made it to the Viada gas station where it died completely and at 9:30 my college came and towed us back to Riga.

Thanks for the cache! This was really great adventure, even if it will cost pretty much for me to fix a car now :)

The approach from Kurgan house was quite nice although I had to leave my car 1,6 KM from the cache. A four wheel drive wouldn't have gotten me any further. The walk was also beautiful at 10.30 pm with enough light to see, but the final was desasterous. swamp, mud and water. I got as close as 20 m from the cache when I slid kneedeep into the mud. Checking the direction and distance I saw only mud and water. with panzs and shoes covered knee high with mud I decided to quit. On my way back I thought perhaps I missed the camera "do you enjoy Geochaching" somewhere. I would have answered Normally yes, this time no. This is a cache I will not try again.

Found it!
I reach this point by bicycle (15 meters), but it is possible by ordinary car (250 meters from cache). Dont forget the entrenching tool. Off course if You now where start to go .
I think some 4X4 off-road drivers was near cache, look in pictures.
Placed TB in this cache, hope someone find it lightly. Out - pair of gloves.

Many thanks to Peecis for hint & help!
