Forest in Häckeberga, Skåne, Sweden



Go to the hash in the evening and find a geocache or two afterwards.


The Häckeberga forests are always nice to visit so this geohash was tempting. I expected the exact geohash location to be in fairly dense fir forest with some nice beech wood surrounding it but when I got there around 19.00, it became apparent that it all had turned into a clear-felled area.

Hordes of roe deer roamed in the darkness and that felt a bit spooky. The clear-cut was quite easy to walk. I followed the tracks of big forest machines for less than 200 meters. The ground was covered with not too deep, packed snow. The most exciting item at the hashpoint was a fallen spruce. After photographing I walked back in my own track.

Now it was time for some geocaching. I drove to the vicinity of the chosen cache without navigation aid and turned on the geocaching application in the phone. Not much happened. Cell coverage was bad and I eventually gave up further attempts and headed back home.
