On autumn vacation visiting my parents in my "youth graticule" 62 17 (Sundsvall), I was lucky to find that the coordinates were not that far from my old home. It was not a hard job to persuade my father to go try to get to this geohash as it was going to be a historical event to deflower this graticule.

We parked the car a just over a kilometer from the hash an started walking on muddy but easily walked paths. Soon we got to a power lane where the terrain got a bit rougher. We made our way trough a bit of swamp, thick brush wood and slippery rocks before we got to the geohash where we planted a small pole.

On our way back we discussed the possibilities of the pole ever being found by anyone and we came to the conclusion that it might as well have been planted on the moon.
