[edit] Location

On a empty field near a quiet little town called Topki.

[edit] Participants

Just me, LemonadeCellar.

[edit] Plans

Get to Topki by bus, walk the remaining distance, return in the same manner, be home for dinner.

[edit] Expedition

The first part (getting there) went well. After a 50-minute long bus ride I got off the bus and saw Topki for the first time. And, well, it's a typical Russian town with Khrushchev buildings and unpresentable-looking private houses. Walking for an hour (5km) is boring (damn it, should've taken my earpieces) and uneventful. Wandered around the circle-shaped crossing for five minutes because GPS stopped working. Walking on the field was easy (good thing it didn't rain yesterday, otherwise this would've been a disaster). Obviously, there was no one at the hashpoint, not even a single farmer (and I even made up a story about making an article describing the life of an ordinary farmer for my college project), so I just placed my note and left. The second part (getting home) didn't go quite according to the plan, as I had to spend an hour doing nothing because I didn't bother looking at the bus schedule and my phone's battery couldn't handle the pressure. Overall, pretty decent for my first expedition.
