Thought of driving by when going to celebrate Christmas just outside Trelleborg, but we didn't have the time when we finally left the house.
Thought it was a failed day, but since Christmas presents and food went short and everybody was a bit tired, we all drove home early, which meant that if we took the fast road to Dalby we would made it just in time for a midnight geohashe on Christmas. The time planning was indeed correct and we parked the car as close as possible. Maybe in daytime this would have been a very muddy field, but now this late the ground was a bit frozen, and when I was so close to target I just stepped out into the field only to realize it was hard enough to walk on. Quickly found the geohashe location and took a picture, but forgot to turn off the flash. Second picture just a minute late of midnight. Took some crappy pictures of myself and the surroundings before driving home with the family again. Success!
I was driving to Halmstad in the morning to celebrate Christmas and the hash location was on the way. Before leaving I checked the Google maps satellite images and it pointed out a field. It was quite rainy and I had not much hope of reaching the hash as I expected the ground to be very muddy, but I gave it a shot anyway. I came as close as 20 meters from the hash but did not bother to get any closer. I did not want to meet Santa covered up to my ears in mud, so I took some uninteresting photographs and continued my journey to Halmstad. This was my last expedition in 2011.
