After a few days of very remote (more than two hours by car) hash points, we yesterday discovered the nice point of today. When discussing about by which means we should reach the hash point, we soon realized that our current location (Jonatan's parents' summer house) actually had some impact on our mode of transportation:
1) Walking would have been nice, but as we already walked ~30 km yesterday and only had brought really bad shoes, that wasn't really a good idea.
2) Biking is always funny - if you have a nice bike. The bikes at the place we're staying at at the moment are different kinds of disasters, all of them...
3) By bus. This would have given us a new achievement, but a bus trip from the house to the hash point would have taken two hours, of which 55 minutes were waiting. Then we would have to wait a good deal of time at the hash point to find a bus back, which would take more than two hours. All this for going ~2*30 km... Also we had to be home again at 11 am, and greet some guests. Simply not an alternative.
4) By car. The far most boring mode of transportation. However, as we couldn't really use any other mode, we simply had to use this one.
Later that evening, we realized that my (Jonatan's) father actually had to go by car to a place ~1 km away from the hash point the same time and day in order to buy some stuff for repairing the house. Nice for us! :-)
The expedition was perhaps one of the easiest I've made so far. We went by car to the hash point and realized it was ~12 meters out in a wheat field. Fortunately, we found out where the tractor had been going and walked in it's trails. This way, we didn't ruin any wheat, so we didn't have to upset the poor farmer.
