[edit] Expedition

Having finished my Cardiff hash I wanted to press on to Bristol graticule as soon as I could to collect my Minesweeper point. The first thing that happened, of course, was a massive traffic jam around Cardiff :| In the end I reached the Bristol hash with about 20 minutes of good daylight left, which was just enough!

This location was in a field that had been harvested a while ago and still had stubble. There was a power line running across it. I parked close by and walked through a gap by the gate. It was quite easy to reach the hash. I walked back, and noticed a Land Rover slowing down as it passed on the road. Perhaps someone had seen me and was going to give me a grilling! I would have said I was taking artistic photos of the pylon (actually I had done this!) but in the event they didn't bother. I wasn't doing any harm anyway: there was clearly nothing growing in the field and nothing sown.

So, this together with the Cardiff hash made my second Multihash.
