A field in Tarczyn. With a creepy, old dugout.



2013/01/26, 01:02 - Ziemek and Norill are talking about virgin graticules near them. There is one, near Piaseczno. It's Tomaszów Mazowiecki's graticule. There is a plan...

2013/02/15, 15:52 - There are few hashpoints for the weekend. Saturday point is located 26km from our home city. The expedition is born.


2013/02/16, 18:59 - Ziemek is at work. He called Ziemba if he's already in Piaseczno. At the same time Ziemba and Norill were shopping near Ziemek's workplace. Ziemek decides to leave work early and pick up the rest of Fellowship. We are so turned on!

2013/02/16, 19:15 - We are finally together! In good mood we launch 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)' song and drive highway towards our hashpoint, eating coco bars.

2013/02/16, 19:40 - We arrive at the place. Finally...

To get to the hash we drove off from Aleja Krakowska highway to Komornicka street. Then we turned left, to Cmentarna (Cemetery) street. Driving into the forest, near the cemetery, in the night - that was scary. Anyway, after 1km we parked our car and went into a field.

Hash was quite easy to find, because of the old dugout near the desired point. After taking pictures of our tracking devices we went into that mysterious building. There was a little window in front of us, but we got in from the other side - through old, wooden door, blocked by frozen water.

The inside was creepy - dirty, with cobwebs here and there and metal rods protruding from the wall. Few pictures of the gang taken, but we thought that we need a picture outside. So we took an old barrel lying in front of a dugout and placed a camera on it.

Then - a brilliant idea came. What if we took some pictures with long exposure time? So, the idea has born. Shooting take us much more time than finding the hash! After all we went back to the car, warmed up a little bit, opened a bag of chips and drove home.
