Only 4km away. In town!!!



Will probably go there before school.

  • Either I walk there on my way to school, pretty long way to walk though
  • Or I take bus 1(which I normally do on the way to school) switch to bus 4 after some time, walk the last bit to the hash, bus 4 back and continue my ride with bus 1 to the school.


Didn't want to get up too early so I chose the bus alternative. After getting off my normal bus I noticed that the other bus didn't even go past that bus stop :O But with some logical thinking my epicness I managed to find the correct bus stop. Apparently there were two bus stops with the same name, very odd. I waited for the bus and took it to its last stop where I got off. I were now about 350 meters from the hashpoint and began walking. My GPS later on said it was 15 meters left, but it was a house over there. Damn Google maps, you said it was supposed to be outside the house. :( I went around the house back and forth to check to see if it actually was in the house and it was. I was ready to give up when I noticed how lucky I were. The house had two floors, the families who lived at the bottom one had own entrances but what I hadn't seen was that the second floor ones shared a stairway up. The door to that stairway was in the middle of the house and guess where the hashpoint was. :) I opened the door and went in, my GPS's accuracy heavily increased and the distance to the target decreased. The accuracy changed between 10 and 25 meters and the distance left changed between 1 and 10 meters. After some camera problems I managed to take some pictures.
