[edit] Expedition

After getting about 600 meters from the hash point by car, me, my uncle (who I used to drive me to the point) and my cousin (we picked him up on the way) were ready to begin the true adventure by entering a big empty field. So we walked through this (and our feet got covered with some strange annoying kind of plants...what a pain!) Then we went to a rusty fence: I felt demoralized! But we couldn't stop there. We managed to climb over it. We were excited. I don't know why we were excited...in the end we were in the middle of a deserted field enclosed by a rusty fence. But we were excited and so we started running towards the gps arrow through a vineyard. Eventually we had to kneel in order to reach the hash point. After being maddened trying to find the exact spot we found it. We took some photos, including a "stylish" one (stylish is a very badly definied term...). On the way back a melancholy sunset welcomed us and we were all sad to leave that adventure. This it has been my first time(and I hope it won't be the last one)and i won't ever forget it.
