[edit] Plans

First visit 52 5, take the train to Assen and cycle to the hash.

[edit] Expedition

First of all the transit in Amersfoort failed because it was to short so I was half an hour delayed. After this minor inconvenience I arrived in Assen. I set of on the folding-bike and as soon as I left Assen it started to snow. For a short moment I considered going back, but in stead I put on some safety glasses and continued. About one kilometer from the hash the roads became snowed over but it was doable to cycle on it. A few hundred meters further it became worse with mud. For some reason I did not think of leaving the bike and continue by foot so I dragged the bike with me. At some moment I lost the road and it became quite dark already. Somewhere there I saw some Roe deer, but they noticed me as well so I wasn't able to take a picture of them. But nice. Now the road stopped, but since there were no signs telling me I should stay on the road I continued in what appeared to be a field. Later on it more appeared to be some swamp. Again I considered to turn back, but only 300 meters, and I had to get out of he mud in some direction. Whit lot of effort I got some 150 meters from the hash, finding some puddle which did not seemed very inviting to cross so I turned right to get back to the road and decided to claim MNB. After 25 meters I found something that looked like a road in the direction of the hash so decided to go for it again. At 50 meters I got stuck again, but giving up was not an option anymore since I got so close. After another 25 meters of dragging the bike with me I finally realized that I could leave it and just walk. I reached the hash, put a X in the snow on a cut of tree and took some pictures. Now of course I was faced with a new challenge. Get back to civilization. So after some more struggling I came back to a road. Because of all the mud and snow the wheels of the bike were completely blocked, so first I had to clean it out while it was almost dark. After this I walked the most slippery part before cycling back to the station.
