Today's expedition was a really nice one with wonderful weather, short distance to the hash point and a nice hash place. We started from the Chalmers University campus with half an hour of messing with phones and computers in order to get some gps-device to work properly. After this we left for a nice bike trip to the hash point.
At the hash point, we had a really short climbing session, only to discover that by walking some extra 50 meters, we could have by-passed all the cliffs... After about hundred meters of walk in the forest, we reached the coordinates. Usually, when reaching the coordinates on a hashpedition, Gabriel celebrates by getting a call from his parents, urgently in need of computer service. However, this did not happen today. Instead Sigrid felt responsible for keeping the tradition and therefore got distracted by a phone call during the whole hashpoint-reached-procedure'. In the meanwhile Gabriel took some photos of us and some flowers while I stood there and...eh...did something. Obviously. Can't remember what, though...
The tour home was really nice, but would be really boring to read about. Hence, I won't write one more empty phrase about it.
That was it!
The Biology Lecture of the Hash
The new knowledge of today (for me, Jonatan) was:
- Some English, Latin and Swedish names of some flowers. See photos.
- That the process when a grows from an enrolled state is called cercinate vernation. See photo below for an example.
- That needles doesn't count as foliage even though for instance larch needles fall of during the winter.
