[edit] Location

Between a private road and the lake Storljusen near Sala. Just 20 meters into the woods.

[edit] Plans

Since todays latitude was really low, that meant that Sandviken, Sweden and Falun, Sweden was reachable to fill up my minesweeper achievement. So the plan was to drive like this.

[edit] Expedition

Got up early since I knew I could do this multihash today. Jumped in the car and drove onto the E18 and then the 70 towards Sala. It was a beautiful day with a totally clear sky. Got close to Sala and took the right road. Crossed the rails and headed onto a snowy tiny road. Saw a sign that they were hunting moose today so they might be scared and run out into the road. Got closer and closer to the lake Storljusen and passed a tiny bed and breakfast. Got right to the lake and there was a suprising amount of people and cars there. I headed into the more private road and parked the car 180 m or so from the hash point since there was a nice place to park there.

I headed in the hash's direction, and walked on the road that follow the train tracks. Took a right into the woods on a path and found where I had to go through the trees. Found the hash and took some pictures and marked the spot with my day-glow paint in the snow.

From the hash I could hear cars racing and snow scooters racing as well. Was it coming from the lake? I got back to the car and drove to the lake again and yes, people were driving on it! Fun! I decided to give it a go. I met a car on the ice and I slowed down and out came a man looking at me so I drove closer and rolled down the window. It was the local beaver conservationist! He told me that there was a beaver lodge near the first island, and that was the most popular island to race around, but it scared the beavers, and you might run over them. So he said to drive on the main part of the lake instead. I said, fine with me and took a nice tour of the lake.

Lots of opposite lock when you get the tail out. Lots of fun! View the video above.

Then onto 2012-01-29 60 15.
