[edit] Expedition

by chance i was stopped outside valencia and decided to check the coordinates for the day.

lo and behold (once i managed to get them) the hash turned out to be only 20km away, in roughly the direction i was going anyway. i entered the point in my GPS and let it direct me to within a few hundred meters. knowing the OSM map i had would be unlikely to include all the little service roads, i knew i'd have to override it from there.

i did a quick drive by first, but decided not to take the car in because someone was working in the next field, and this van does stand out as being nut local. instead, i parked at the metro station just a few hundred meters away (the Spanish seem to have something against leaving space to park on the roadside).

crossing the track a couple of times (carefully, in order to use roads and paths instead or wandering through the fields) i made my way to the exact spot, right under a pile of dead branches, took some photos, then walked back to the van.

now onwards and northwards
