[edit] Expedition

At first glance I was disappointed because the hashpoint was in the sea. Then, I realized that "Hey! It is winter and the sea is Frozen!" The location was not far from the shore and only some 5 km from my home. In the evening I drove to the island of Satava. I left my car in front of "Satavan kyläkauppa", small and personal shop, which also has a cafe.

I was prepared with ice picks but this was not necessary. There were fresh snowmobile tracks on the ice and no water could be seen even in the very shore. There was about 20 cm snow on the ice so it wasn't too hard to walk 50 meters to the hashpoint.

There was a beautiful full moon, so it wasn't very dark. I took some pictures with my Samsung xCover, but since it is not the best possible camera, it seems that it was dark although it really wasn't.

This was first geohash on ice for me! Great!
