I woke up too early so a quick drive out towards Enköping would be nice.

[edit] Expedition

I woke way to early, but I wasn't ready for a sunrise hash cause I was doing other stuff. But by 0830 I was ready to leave. Walked to the car and drove onto E18 almost all the way to Enköping. Then headed south. Close to the hash Google Navigation led me onto a gravel road. It was almost flooded at one place, and came past some castle looking house on the left close to the water. Snapped a nice picture of the trees. It looked like a painting by David Hockney.

Then google told me to take a right, and the road got worse. And as it turned south it got really bad, you almost needed a tractor to use this "road". Found the farm that was closest to the hash and parked the car. I could see a lot of horse paddocks and I was hoping it was in a normal field and not a paddock. Couldn't see any people around to ask for permission, just some horses. I walked closer outside the paddocks and as I got really close there was one that was open so I walked inside. Found the hash pretty much smack in the middle of this paddock. Marked a tiny Orange™ marker as to not disturb too much and snapped some pics.

I walked back towards the stables and there I met a woman named Anki who wondered who I was. I said I was from the internet and explained about geohashing. She couldn't really understand why anyone would do that but wished me, "Good Luck!". Ambassador after the fact.

Took a better road back towards the E18, not the crazy path only good for tractors and went and had some food at Max and bought a frying pan at Barkaby. Then off home.
