- Fasanen & Ms. C
When Fasanen saw the coordinates for today plotted on the map, they immediately rang a bell. He had been there before when searching for GCYK9V four years earlier and if the cache was still hidden at the same place, a "Hash collision achievement" would be in the bag. Fasanen checked the cache site but it turned out that the cache had been slightly moved since he last found it. Reason for moving the cache was that it with its original location did not meet the geochaching guidelines. It had been hidden in the church wall. A clear line of sight to the hashpoint was now uncertain.
The second uncertainty; was it reachable without trespassing? Growing crops had been aggravating geohashing activities in 55 13 for years.
With some business to attend in Lund, Ms.C and Fasanen, decided to take a slight detour and scout the area of the hash en route. Temperature was around 0° C and autumn skies were crystal when they set off at 09.00. They reached Lyngby church almost without the aid of their GPS unit. To undisguised joy, the hashpoint was in the midst of an empty pasture and not in the anticipated field of crops. They parked the car and changed footwear. After 90 meters of rubber boot waking, they triumphantly reached the hashpoint. Ms.C found things a bit too chilly and went back to the car. Fasanen left a hashing marker and took some photographs before leaving the hash.
After getting back to the car and some fiddling with a phone, Fasanen got the coordinates for the adjacent geocache. With almost no effort he found the cache in a mound of stones, but was there a clear view of sight to the hash ...?...YES! but probably with some of help of autumn and less foliage.
Fasanen and Ms.C called this trip their first “Total Victory Tour” and left the scene.
