Last minute decision. No other than trying to reach the hash after work.

[edit] Expedition

After work weather was nice and I had no immediate obligations. Why not go for today's geohash? Google maps showed characteristic marks of irregualar catepillar threads all over the area, indicating the training grounds for heavy tanks from the nearby armoured regiment P7. If there was no action in the area it should be easily accessed.

I drove the car on a gravel road and stopped 300 meters from the hash point. Terrain was flat as a pancake and covered by short grass. When not used by heavy armour this land is roamed by cattle. Clear evidence of that was the amount of cow droppings all over the place. I had to watch my step from cow dung, but got to the hashpoint without trouble and documented.

On my way back home, I realised that there actually was quite some military training happening. I passed some GI:s with their faces camo-painted having som kind of roadblock thing going. They seemed quite bored though. I saw some more military action before I finally got home.
