[edit] Expedition

A few days had elapsed since my last expedition so what better than to go midnight hashing. After picking off 2011-08-02_52_1 at 23:32 I headed south.

I parked in a passing place on the single track road leaving the side lights on. At 1a.m. there would be little traffic.

Soon after 1a.m. my droid reported the following.

The hashpoint was 17 metres into an oil seed rape field. I squeezed past a few tall wiry plants, soon to be harvested, until I was inside the circle of uncertainty. I didn't bother to get zero on the display. The plants were so thickly intergrown that the damage would have been unacceptable. After all this is geohashing, not crop-circle making!

The drive home on a warm summer night on traffic free roads was very pleasant.

It was pitch dark!
