Near a quarry west of Dingtuna, near Västerås, Sweden.

the ru[edit]

I wanted to do a bicycle geohash. Since I live in the eastern part of Västerås I first had to cross the city. Starting distance was 13 km, but choosing a suboptimal route I ended up going 12 km before I even got out of the city (with 6 km remaining). There is a bike/pedestrian track all the way to Dingtuna, so from there on it was straight-forward.

Entering the quarry was prohibited, so I didn't. Strictly speaking the hashpoint was just on the edge, but with warning signs about blasting and heavy truck traffic passing me by it just didn't feel like a place I should be climbing around near.

I was also trying out my new camera, an Olympus X-560WP-LE. I'm not entirely satisfied but it's good enough for casual photography. I got it mostly for videoblogging in the shower.

the ru earned the No trespassing consolation prize
by almost reaching the (59, 16) geohash on 2010-08-16.
