[edit] Location

Landgoed Ewijckshoeve near Lage Vuursche. Middle of the forest. Not sure if wanderers are allowed in that area.

[edit] Plans

CO2 will go by bike if and only if someone comes along with a GPS. That makes a forest hash like this MUCH easier to find. Please let me know if you want to go!

Tchakkazulu is interested. He has a GPS, but no bike, so he'll take a train to Den Dolder and walk from there.

It's about 30-40 minutes walking from the station to #. We'll try to meet at about 13:00 at the station. Tchakkazulu will take the train that arrives at 12:47, and failing that, the next one that arrives at 13:04.

[edit] Expedition

Tchakkazulu managed to miss yet another train, so he arrived at 13:17. CO2 was already there, and together they walked in the general direction of the hash. When being 300 meters away from the hash, CO2's suspicion proved correct: gates closed. The area isn't publicly accessible, but belongs to some estate further up north.

We took some pictures, and followed the path further on. The nearest we got was 180 meters. We went around the lands, but gates everywhere were as closed as they get.

CO2 arrived at the station by bike. We were really not sure if we were going to reach this one, google maps wasn't clear, nor was the website we found about the estate property (Ewijckshoeve). At least it was a nice forest walk. The little bit of rain couldn't stop us. As you can see in the last picture, we met some real gnomes.
