In the forest a few kilometers northeast of Hörby, Skåne, Sweden.




Location was nearby and I needed some fresh air before working all weekend.


The roads were snowy, but not too much. It was easy to drive on. When arriving close to the hashpoint I tried to park close just a bit next to the road when the car got stuck totally. I had a shovel and other things in the car to dig myself out and get loose. When trying to do so for more than 40 minutes a car drove by on the lonely road. I stopped him and he helped me out by pulling the car out on the road again. I drove a bit further to turn around at a more suitable place. When arriving back I thought if nobody have driven by in 40 minutes I could park my car on the road during the time I was going out in the forest to the hashpoint, and so I did.

I had to walk on a tractor road about 360 meters into the forest, as shown on the maps when looking at the GPS. It was quite easily reached and I had a thermometer with me to make it a frozen geohash as well. It was only -4 degrees in the snow, but when looking at the thermometer in the car it was about -8 outside. Took some photos but forgot the grin. I had to get back to the car quickly enough not to stop any traffic on the road. Then I headed back to work.
