Located in the southeast of Oulu, Finland.
And so the hash landed pretty close to our homes (near University of Oulu). Expedition was planned at morning and we closely monitored the weather for the whole day. Cladly it didn't rain when we started our trip around 20:30 local time (17:30 UTC).
The hash was in deep forest around 100 meters from nearest gravel road. We saw one Brown Hare (Lepus europaeus), heard Cuckoo (Cuculus canorus) sing and met batallions of finnish air forces (mosquitos).
Tomtom car navigator is not the best device to use when trying to reach accurate coordinates. The device updated coordinates after moving long enough distance with high enough speed. It must have been funny sight to see me (Oherrala) hopping around the forest with my navigator. For the next trip I need to get a compass.
After successfully reaching the geohash we headed towards geocache GC18ERA which we found.
Then we turned the car back to home and got welcomed by rain. We had good luck.
