The Destination[edit]

We had a spontaneous idea of going for a geohash trip altough the time was already 10pm. We (Peldie and delsku) picked up Wildmage to come with us and headed for the destination. An aerial photo, compared to some terrain maps of the destination showed us that the place we were looking for was actually situated behind the largest airport of Finland (the Helsinki-Vantaa airport) in the city of Vantaa. It was a corner of a fence of some sort that belonged to a scrap metal processing plant. Luckily for us, the place was easily reachable by car and the spot was situated on the public side of the fence. Altough we didn't have any kind of electronical GPS or other positioning system, we were able to locate ourselves accurately with the help of aerial photos and maps. Reaching the point was fairly easy, even though it was in the middle of a forest, on a top of a hill, as there was a motocross training paths in the area that helped our journey through the woods.

The Group[edit]

This was the first geohash experience for all of us, yay geekness \o/


  • Land Geohash

I think it doesn't qualify as MNIMB, altough some climbing and descending was involved.
