[edit] Expedition

This one was my first geohash ever and I was quite lucky because I did not check the coordinates for the past few days. So today at 9pm I realized, that the location was nearly as close as it could be (not even 2km) and this chance would not come back soon. Lacking a GPS device, I printed the exact location, grabbed my camera and bike and enjoyed the ride through the night.
Because I did not check the map carefully enough and went without thinking about the exact location I forgot that there was a dip between the way I took and my destination and then needed to ride about ten minutes around although I could see the spot.

Finally at the location, at the entrance of a small forest, I noticed that I took my cam without battery and I could only take photos with my mobile, so the quality is really awful. Also because of the darkness it was impossible to show anything of the landscape at all.

I went home the other way, that was definitely faster. So I would have also earned the tron achievement, because I did not cross my path until I reached home, but I have no proof of it, as well as my photos are not really a good proof of anything but that‘s all I have.
