Steinsfjorden, Norway. 200m from relet's house, halfway to the Braksøya island reservate.
Today's battleship location is: D 1
Boat. Or swim. It may be raining.
I briefly considered reaching the hash by inflatable couch, but couldn't muster the time and effort to acquire one.
Geohashing is a great way to explore your surroundings. Now, I had just moved to a new house, and had a completely unexplored Nature Reserve right in front of my terrace. It's an island called Braksøya. This geohash should provide me with a wonderful excuse to take a trip to the island. I inflated my boat, put on waterproof shoes, donned my rain jacket, wrapped my phone and camera in plastic bags. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring a helmet.
Anyway, a few paddle strokes later, I was able to post the message...
...via my home W-LAN. I claim a virtual couch potato achievement!
I then continued towards the island. It is a nice stretch of forested rock, which at this time of year is a bird reservation. I discovered some young seagulls and divers. Then the adult birds discovered me.
Having no helmet, and sitting in a rubber boat, I quickly decided on a the honorable option: A retreat. Fortunately, the seagulls sticked to the plan and I had nothing worse to suffer than the mocking and some mock attacks.
