[edit] Location

The hashpoint turned out to be on a burnt field, few meters away from a narrow gauge railway from Wrocław to Trzebnica, about 1km south-west from Ramiszów, north from Wrocław. More at peeron geohashing.info google osm bing/os kml crox.

[edit] Expedition

I picked my bike from service and set out on journey. The first part through the city was pretty easy and uninteresting as I drove through those areas frequently. Things were getting trickier as I passed the city border. Initially I wanted to approach the hashpoint through the fields west of the railway as that was where the hashpoint was. Unfortunately the fields turned out to be very swampy and almost impassable. I tried and made some progress for a kilometer or two, crossing a highway in construction, but eventually I got stopped completely. I was afraid that I would have to go with Mother Nature Is Bitch achievement, but I managed to turn around, cross the railway and get to a road east of it. I should have started that way. I cycled along the road to Ramiszów, from there it was only about one hundred meters along some field way, across the railway, and another hundred meters to the actual hashpoint at about 15:45 (CEST).

The point turned out to be in the middle of a burnt field, not a pleasant place to spend time on, so I just took some photos to document my adventure (it did take some time actually, more than half an hour). A train passed by as I was shooting photos, I managed to take a blurry photo of it. None other hashers appeared so at about 16:15 (CEST) I left the place, got on the road to Wrocław and cycled home.
