Just on the edge of the highly popular lake Sognsvann just north of Oslo. On hot days the lawns an the lake is filled with people. It has a handicap friendly track running around it. About 3 km lenght. It is one of the trailheads for easy acces to the deep woods north of Norways capital.



Taking the subway from work to the end station on Sognsvann and biking the 1.5 kms to the site was an easy task. I have biked, walked and skied these tracks numerous times. Have also lived at the student housing close by. The site is just a few meters from the classical cache called Sognsvann, Euroboksen.


Used rollerblades, my preferred mode of transportation, to get to the lake, then walked along the trail to the hashpoint. Didn't have a clear idea exacly where the coordinates were, so I followed the trail a short way beyond where I thought it might be and ended up having a short discussion about science in general and physics in particular and the awesomeness of ThinkGeek with a random guy that said he liked my shirt. Suspect that the guy I saw digging through the weeds first time I passed where I finally decided the hashpoint to be was hbrx. Made 'cairn' out of bits of dried grass because there was nothing else close at hand. Sat around for a bit and then spent a while taking photos of the scenery, then rollerbladed back home.
