In the forest east from Sturup airport by the lake Björkesåkrasjön.



After a long series of days with hashes ending up in water or in growing crops, this location seems to be possible to get to. By looking at the map, it does not seem that difficult. I have a bit busy schedule so I'll try to be there in the morning at 06.30. Anyone else? -- Fasanen

Phone alarm went off 05.30 and I got up with a sore throat and a slight fever. Rain was falling outside. Hurray! Another day at work was waiting except that there was a hash to be a explored between home and work.

The coordinates were located just 15 km from home, but in an area that was quite unfamiliar to me. 06.30. It was still raining. I drove the car on a narrow gravel road and found some space to park on not very far from the hash. A wild goose was crying loudly while took out my rubber boots from the back of the car. The landscape on the eastern side of the road was open and friendly. Unfortunately the target was located to the less pleasant western side, which was populated by small birches and shrubs but luckily just 70 meters off road. While I approached the hash, a plane took off from the nearby Sturup airport and made a turn in my direction. I reached the hash without further ado. It was close to an animal trail and I acquired the proof and took some other photographs. The rest of the story is just an other uneventful commute to work. -- Fasanen
