[edit] Plans

Get on the bike, walk into the forest and hopefully get the gps to act somewhat accurate and then get the first hash in this graticule!

[edit] Expedition

So after getting my old GPS back to life I got on my bike and went straight to the forest the where the hash was. Although instead of going around it I tried to maintain a straight line (in case I would be able to get the juggernaut achievement, which I might have gotten) and went straight into it, parking the bike and started walking, thinking that 350 meters ain't that much, turns out it was.

After just a couple of minutes I get to an open field located about 10 meters below me, then some minutes later, me and my somewhat hurting legs got to cross a small stream before climbing up another hill into another forest. By this time my shoes where full of water after walking in the high grass while it was raining. So after yet some time I arrived at the location completely soaked from my knees downwards. It goes without saying that I took the easy route back to the bike, went home, dropped the pants and stood there, half naked and quite proud of myself for taking this graticule's virginity.
