[edit] The Expedition

[edit] TheOneRing

I decided to go to this geohash, because it was in a Virgin Graticule. I went by train to Alpnach (OW) via Lucerne (LU), which took only 1,5 hours. The geohash was a bit outside the village, so I made a little walk through it. The area, where I assumed the geohash, looked like private property and I looked every now and then, if I can see the owner to get permission (and the Ambassador achievement). First noone appeared, I walked to the geohash next to a farm house and I took the usual photos.
Suddenly the owner of the farm house came out and asked me, if I am taking photos. I confirmed his guess and asked, if I am allowed to do. I was prepared to explain, why I am there and what I was doing exactly, but he only said, that it is ok, the meadows, though private, are not restricted area. I thanked him, completed my galery of photos and made my way back to the village. Unfortunately the weather was not very nice, it was quite foggy all day.
Following a loudspeaker and my own curiosity I went directly into a sports event. But what kind of winter sport could this be? Finally I found out there took the Innerschweizer Crosslauf-Meisterschaft 2011 place (Central Switzerland cross country running championships). I was quite stunned that this was taking place in January but I saw it with my own eyes.
Afterwards I walked back to the train station and took the next train to Lucerne and from there to Berne.
