The location is at the side of the road to Ignatievo town.


Just me and my bike :)


Today when browsing XKCD I found something about geohashing and started reading. Soon it sounded very interesting and I checked the hash near my home. It was very near and reachable by fine road. Also there were no other expeditions in my graticule. I red some pages while thinking "to go or not to go"...

Finaly I decided. Dusted the bike, pumped up the tyres and went riding. No planning ahead at all. Just on a hunch. I was hoping to record a track of my ride but "Open GPS tracker" and "MyTracks" on my GalaxyS both failed me. Made the trip with just a few stops - one for orientation on the way there and several on the way back to take some pictures.

The hashpoint was some 10 meters aside of the road. There was a lot of garbage around but I couldn't take any because it was very big.
