[edit] Expedition

Started after work to go on the almost perfect expedition in order to conquer the 51/12 graticule: it was nice biking weather (sunny and dry), the point was located at reasonable distance (or something very much like it) and I had (almost) prepared a route. Well, I looked it up on Google and the way seemed like there would be practically no alternative. But of course after Eisenberg there were alternatives, and more than one, and of course my paper maps ended where also the map in my head ended, and don't try to do real navigation on that tiny Edge display, so I just followed the purple "off road" (i.e., as the crow flies) track on it as good as possible. It turned out I even saved some kms like that, but not more than I added by using the cycleway instead of the main road before. Reached the point without problems, cycled back and arrived back home even before complete darkness after I had done exactly the 83 kms I had planned to do - yay!

The reward: a nice view.
