[edit] Location

The hashpoint is located in a field, near a small village near Svoge. It is quite hard to reach, due to private properties and fences

Joro and Ani

[edit] Plans

The target is around 60 km away from sofia and we're leaving around 13:00, so we plan to be there around 14:00

[edit] Expedition

  • Starting point: City Center Sofia
  • 12:00 :: Go time. Me and Ani meet at the City Center. We drive around Sofia to pick up some stuff that we are going to need, and check where the actual hashpoint is.
  • 13:00 :: We exit Sofia, have the route planned in Google maps on my Nexus S, and start taking pictures
  • 14:30 :: We arrive at the village where the hash should be. The road was way worse than expected, and it took us quite longer than expected to arrive. But we took a lot of pictures with the beautiful scenery from the car
  • 14:40 :: We decide to park the car in the middle of town, and go on foot. It seems that the hash point is on a ridge in a small forest.
  • 15:00 :: Turns out that the hash point is beyond some people's private property, and finding a suitable route to go there without trespassing will be problematic
  • 15:40 :: We finally manage to reach the immediate vicinity of the target spot. The android GPS updates quite slowly though, and with a huge error bar. We get as close as possible to the spot, which is on a steep hill. Nevertheless, we decide to stay there for a while. We take some pictures, and find out that we can't really take a picture of the phone with the phone.
  • 16:30 :: We start packing and making our way back to the car
  • 16:45 :: Start the engine and back to Sofia
  • 18:00 :: Arrive at NDK and disband the party.
