This hash is located close to a subway station, right next to a small road in a residential area.
Carl-Johan saw this on Friday, and it was too easy to pass up. Thought about biking but the pictures would be better if I tried at lunch so by subway was the way to go.
- Thinking of taking the subway there during lunch. -- Carl-Johan 23:19, 11 March 2012 (CET)
My computer at the new work hadn't arrived so I popped out for lunch and grabbed my bag with a can of Orange™ and headed to the subway station. When I get down there it's 9 minutes until the next train in the right directin so i pop up the other exit and grab 2 cheeseburgers at McBlubbers.
Get on the train which takes to Gubbängen which is 350 m from the hash. Walk over there when all of a sudden I see a kitty! Must... pet... Kitty... mind strong... flesh weak....
I tear myself away from the kitty and walk the last 30 meters to the hash. As usual the GPS stops updating just as I have 28.84 m left to the hash. Why oh, why does this always happen. I blame google maps or something. I point the phone to the skies and flip around among programs until I get a signal lock again and it turns out I'm standing on the hash.
Mark the dirt with Orange™ even though no one has ever visited my hashes after me. I don't even know why I bother.
Snap some pics and upload them while walking back to the subway and catch the train back to work. Way too easy this one.
Expedition Zeot, Henrik, Simon and Kristian
Me (zeot), Henrik and Kristian met up with Simon at the bus station in Skarpnäck and took bus 172 to Gubbängen around 16:10, and we arrived at Gubbängen around 10 minutes later. When we got there I enabled the GPS on my phone and we started walking straight towards our goal, with no regard for what was in the way. We had to go through a shrub, but other than that it was a surprisingly easy path we choose.
Once at the hash, we saw that someone had already been there. A very nice surprise, since we didn't know that anyone else in Stockholm geohashed.

We found that Cjk had tagged the area already, so we stole that and took some pictures.
