The geohash is on a hill near Stoveland farm, west of Herefossfjorden. A hike of about a kilometer is required to reach it. From Lillesand we have to drive through Birkeland, over the Sennumstad bridge, follow the roadsign towards Stoveland, and find a suitable place to park. The terrain is hilly and mostly forested. There is two hilltops close by that will probably provide a pretty view of Herefossfjorden, Troåsen (336 m.a.s.l) and Småheiene (333 m.a.s.l.). The geohash itself is at 310 m.a.s.l, which is about 140 meters above the planned parking spot.
MartinK plans to take a friend or more to get the Drag-along achievement. The plan is to drive from Lillesand after school and work, drive to Stoveland and walk from there. And if we feel like it go to the top of Troåsen (336 m.a.s.l) and Småheiene (333 m.a.s.l). And probably pick and eat some blueberries on the way :-)
The expedition went as planned up to the geohash. Because of time constraints we didn't go to the hilltops. On the walk up MartinK walked over a snake without noticing. The dragged along family member noticed it though, so we photographed it. There was still a few blueberries, as well as lingonberries and bog bilberries.
MartinK grinning stupidly ;-)
