[edit] Location

The hash is in Tolbert, next to Leek, on a parking place. It's just off the highway, and very easy to reach.

[edit] Plans

Shevek and Gamma are going there by car. We'll leave from Groningen around 13:30, so we should arrive before 14:00. Shevek is going for another drag-along, and this time also a no batteries achievement. It should be easy, there are more than enough orientation points on the satellite images.

[edit] Expedition

Because of the no batteries attempt, Shevek made a "map" before leaving. His printer was not working, so he had to draw it by hand. Because the route was so simple, there was no problem getting there.

Once there, we made some pictures of us standing there. Meanwhile the person living there was sitting in his garden looking at us, obviously wondering what we were doing there.

Because we didn't know if anyone else would be coming, we waited on a nearby bench in the sun. Nobody else showed up, though. So after a while, we decided to leave again. Before that, Shevek first talked to the local, though, who was just mounting his motorcycle. He seemed to understand the explanation, but didn't seem eager to collect his couch potato achievement.

On the way back, we decided to take the nicer road, avoiding the highway. For a moment, that seemed like a bad idea, because the road was marked as broken up, but it really wasn't, and we could just get home without a problem.
