[edit] Expedition

Too bad I could not get away earlier but when I parked the car beside road just south of Krågeholm, the last faint rays of sunshine were shimmering in the western horizon. Minutes later it was going to be pitch dark. I took my skis out of the boot and turned on the GPS; 530 meters left to the geohash.

I found a path in the snow where someone had been walking one or more dogs several times. Dog poop was lying along the path like pebbles in the story about Hansel and Gretel, but under the present circumstances (-14° C) they were deep frozen. The path was conveniently following Sege River and ended just about 100 meters from the hash.

I got to the hashpoint and and took some photographs. When the camera battery died, I was not inclined to change it. I almost got my right fingers frostbitten.

Back at the car I wondered if this had been my last geohash this year.
