When I saw the Sunday geohash location I remembered driving by there in July, when I visited the largest flea market in the summer in Degeberga.
I actually stopped the car to take a leak before returning home. So I was curious about how close it was from my earlier visit. The place would also get me a minesweeper graticule. It wasn't going to be closer to home than this. I had to go, the only thing to stop me was if anybody was hunting in the area.
I followed the same road as earlier in the summer. It was the same route. When passing the earlier car stop I checked the GPS and I had parked my car only 670 meters from the geohash location. I must have been closer when I was walking in the forest that day in the summer.
When arriving closer I found a road into the forest, but it was barred. I could see that it had been used yesterday or the same morning. But it was only a 220 meter walk. When getting closer I had to get inside a dense forest of pine trees, then down a slope where there was a creek.
It was hard for the GPS to find any good readings so I walked up and down the creek, and also over the creek twice and up again. Eventually I got 2 meters off, but it soon started to change again. The most probable location had a small island in the creek and I put the camera on a tree root to get a steady picture. It was really hard to get enough light for the camera, and I had forgotten my small tripod so most pictures are a bit blurred. It was also raining which didn't help. I got some pictures and when returning I found the elk droppings, fairly freshly laid. I also took a picture of one of the hunting towers I saw before returning to the car to drive back home.
