Stand up early to be there at sunrise :)


Geohashing is a crazy thing!

I never stand up at 6:30am just to do something such senseless, not even for things with more importance. But today I've done it, stod up at 6:30am and started my journey with the bike, just after drawing a little map which is the only reason I made it in time. At this time of day, on weekend, it is incredibly quiet and the streets almost clear (and its fresh, at about 3°C at the beginning, 6°C at the Hashpoint). It is too really easy to navigate, because you always know where east is. So I made it in a good half hour to the Hashpoint without any mistake (again, drawing the map was incredible). As I thought I might be near the Hash I was just 18 meters away, with a accuracy of 6 meters because of the forest. And it was almost exactly 8am just the time of the official sunset (as I hope, because google said it).

Until everything was so easy I decided to make a Tron out of it, and even this worked well. It helped of course that I knew a big part of the way back from 2012-11-06 48 8. Now that I'm back all my batteries are low, from photo, GPS-device and clock. Either I'm lucky, or it was to cold outside.

This going to be a good day.
