The hash was located in Fole, 2km south-south-east of the church. Aerial photography revealed it as located just outside a clearing off the fields. Since this was quite close to the bus route home from work, I decided to get off the regular bus, walk to the hash and back, and then hop on the next bus. Sunset was right around the time that I got off the bus, so to be on the safe side I decided to bring a reflecting vest for walking on the road. Luckily it was light enough to find my way to the hash, particularly with the 10-15cm of snow on the ground, but on the way back dark fell pretty quickly. On the walk back the vest turned out to be a good idea, as there was quite a few cars and properly dark, apart from the snow.

The hash was actually pretty much on a path for small tractors or something similar, that went right up the side of the clearing. This ensured I didn't have to get into deep enough snow that it'd get annoying. Since I still don't have a GPS, the only proof I can offer of being on the hash will be rather long-winded with the walk there.
