Geocache
Geocaching at the MOT Wind, water and muscle! All power tools are driven by a motor or engine. The most obvious examples are a petrol engine, an electric motor, or even a steam engine. But before the emergence of these motors and engines, we had to rely on natural forms of propulsion: wind, water and muscle power.

You will find the coordinates and the information you need to start here. What is geocaching?

Modern treasure-hunters look for their information on the Internet and use a GPS device to find...
