[edit] Plans

Eupeodes finaly aims for a hash in his home graticule. Will attempt by public transport. There are also several Geocaches close to the hash.

The first one might qualify for Hash collision depending on the exact location of the hash.

[edit] Expedition

I (Eupeodes) set off in the morning and took the bus to Tiel, from here I took several trains to reach Weert and from there another bus to a bit less than 2 km from the hash. On my way he saw several nice birds.

I started walking and on my way I first reached GC1WWXA. From there I walked on to the hashpoint. After some pictures I went for GC1WXFZ. Took some time but found it. After this I headed for the last cache within a kilometer from the hash. Due to my gps not being very accurate GC31VFT was a bit of a challenge but successful.

Now all I had on paper was done, but I wanted more so he looked up the rest of the series 'Wegkruisen' and decided to go for it. The first cache I reached was GC1WXFN, then I continued to GC1WX54 and finally (after some site-seeing) to GC1WX59. Here I noticed it was already getting quite late and reaching to other 2 caches and the bonus cache would cost me still a lot of time. My feet did not feel so well anymore either (I got a blister) so I decided to stop here. I walked back to the busstop and traveled back home the same way I came. When I got home I had traveled 250,6 kilometer by public transport and walked 12,7 kilomters.

With this hash I finally was successful in my home graticule, leading to level 1 of the minesweeper achievement, also I did this one only by public transport and foot, so public transport hash as well. Since GC1WXFZ was not in line of sight from the hashpoint it is only a honorable mention for hash collision.
