[edit] Plans

This was completely unplanned.

[edit] Expedition

Henrik called me in the morning to invite me for a flight. Of course I was in. I didn't even think about geohashing at that point, but when I checked the closest coordinates in the air, I discovered they were a mere 5km from the airportgravel track we were planning to land on. As Henrik was fueling the plane anyway when we were there (since it was his first time on that airportgravel track), I asked him if he was game to fly to a random point some 5km further on. He was, and so we went. We didn't exactly zero in on the coordinates, but flew over and turned around the point at about 3000 metric feet of altitude.
