Melkweg (Milky Way), Gemeente Zederik, Hoogewaard.



I plan to arrive somewhere in the afternoon (CET). Upon arrival I'll put up a Tale of Two Hashes challenge for the Milky Way. This is also an invitation to record the quickest met challenge of the Tale of Two Hashes. If you want to tune an arrangement for this, let me know on the discussion page or preferably IRC.


The geohash location turned out to be in a grass field on the Melkweg in Langerak. Around 15:50h when I drove up the road to the geohash, I saw two parachutes heading for the field where the geohash was located. First I thought they had just jumped out of a plane, to show for the best Saturday Meetup ever. But it turned out they were just minding their own business with para-sailing or para-gliding, or para-whatevering. I made some pictures, and this immediately gave a good excuse to cross the two fences to reach the geohash, because they were better visible from that point.

I could also see the Gerbrandy Tower from that point. An almost 400m high antenna, responsible for broadcasting most of the Dutch TV/Radio channels. I stayed at the hash until a few minutes after 4 o'clock to wait for a like-minded geek, but alas, nobody showed up.
