On an old road north of the Krageholm lake, Skåne, Sweden




Go in vintage style on an old moped.


Fasanen went into the garage and found a splash gasoline and a dash of two stroke oil which he mixed into rocket fuel and poured into the tank of the old Puch Florida that had been patiently waiting the whole winter.

Fasanen saddled up and hit the road to get to today's geohash in a forest close to the Krageholm lake some 20 kilometers from home (a distance that the old vehicle had proven before). Short stops were made at Balkåkra church and Marsvinsholm castle.

The first attempt to reach the hash location was hampered by a road barrier but after consulting Google maps and finding an alternative route, Fasanen reached the hash. It was located on something that once had seemed to be quite a significant road, but now was a bit muddy and bumby. That did not however prevent Fasanen from reaching his first Speed Racer Achievement by passing through the hash at warp speed (30 km/h)!

The way home was close to the reverse route except for the first few kilometres and the old moped performed in spades although its owner was a bit numb after an approximate 50 kilometer drive.



Fasanen earned the Land geohash achievement
