[edit] Reports

[edit] Katie Wheatley's Report

We left home a bit later today for this geohash which was good as we made sure we had lunch before we left. It took us about an hour to get there we were expecting it to be raining by the time we got there but it was nice and dry.

We did not need to walk to far to get there, after finding it we took some pictures and wrote a few things in the mud so other people could see we had been there. Chloe noticed there were some sheep a bit further up from us so we all went and had a look, ryan experienced a small electric shock from the fencing that was around the sheep. but he had a little moan then was fine soon afer. We then headed off back to the car and made our way to the next geohash.

[edit] David Miller's Report

We left home around 2pm and headed out in the car to the hash point. It's only 33 miles but took an hour due to the types of roads we were travelling on. The journey was made much more enjoyable by some music we brought along.

We arrived at the hash point expecting it to be raining at this point, as that’s what the weatherman forecast in the morning. Luckily it was nice and dry. We made our way down some tracks and found the hash just slightly off to the right. As Kate is new to geohashing, she decided that she wanted to take the reins on this one and led the way. We took some photos and left a crude marker out of the weeds that were growing near by. We really must make a proper marker that we can leave at the hash point!

Along the route there were some flowers that I thought were lovely, they were probably weeds, but never the less they looked pretty, so I had to grab a quick photo of them. One had a bee (I think) gathering nectar; I got nice and close and snapped it. Further along the route after the hash point we saw some dog foot prints raptor tracks in the mud, we decided that it would be a good idea to be cautious! Just over from the tracks we saw some sheep, perhaps these were its food?

The sheep were enclosed in what seemed a harmless orange roped net fencing. Ryan went up for a closer inspection of the sheep and touched the rope. None of us had expected that the fencing would be electrified, Ryan promptly jumped backwards. After around 5 minutes, he seemed fine once again. A very brave chap!
