[edit] Plans

Walk there, be there at midnight at the start of birthday, take the last bus back to Wageningen and walk home. All in a perfect tron.

[edit] Expedition

At around 21:30 I left home, first I had to take some nice pictures of the sun.

Now I could go, I walked trough Wageningen which was not that exciting. When I left Wageningen it became interesting. In the forest it was very dark and the GPS failed quite some time. It was just a straight road so no real difference for the track. After passing trough Heelsum I got on a road past the golf course. When I was at ~500 meters from the hash I left the road and walked onto the green, no signs that forbid access, only a sort of fence, more a line at a few centimeters above the ground so I ignored it. Now I walked on the course and at 5 minutes before midnight I was at 80 meters of the hash. Hash on the middel of the green, so walked there, waited until it was exactly midnight and took a picture of the gps. I omitted the stupid grin because it was dark so I had to use flash for it. I did not want to use it because I was in line of sight from several houses. Now I walked to the busstop. On the way to the busstop I found some signs telling that only players with accesscard were allowed on the course. At the busstop I took some more pictures including a grin. From the busstop I took the last bus of the day to Wageningen. From the busstation there was no connecting bus available but luckily the busdriver was willing to drop me of close to my home (much closer than the closest busstop). Now I could walk the last part completing the Tron.

So it was a Midnight birthday tron walk land geohash. Since I don't have a golf ball and did not manage to find one it does not qualify for Golf Geohash.

[edit] Tracklog

GPS was not always very accurate, some moving back and forth recorded while I just walked on. So it is a tron but the gps fails a bit.

Is it true that Eupeodes earned the Golf Geohash?
In principle, yes.
But he did not have a golf ball to drop on the hashpoint (2012-07-14 51 5).
