[edit] Plans

Originally, planned to go during my lunch break... But laziness came and visited me, so I planned this again for the evening.

[edit] Expedition

Here am I. My first geohash expedition ever. Quite an easy one to begin with, not far from where I live, and easily accessible by car. Not much stuff around, but I thought about taking the cobra flash out and using it to startle the drivers on the road nearby.

Naaah, just kidding ;-) Or am I ? Oups, a police car.

Nah, really, I didn't do it, I wouldn't like someone else to do this to me, just for fun.

The Google Map picture is not very accurate, though. Much more buildings than expected :-) Oh, a vet office (almost) right on the spot. And what is that? A fence?

Is there a sign somewhere? Nope. Is there something/someone inside? Maybe a swarm of giant, six-legged red spiders? Or a velociraptor? Nope? OK, good to go!

Less than fifty meters later, here I was, right on the spot. But no sign of anyone before me. And I forgot to bring a nice sign... Oh, let's drop the backback, put the phone/GPS on it and take a picture. Done and done !

But damn, it's cold... Time to go back to the car, before I transform into an ice cube :-P -- Yggodin (talk) @48.6200,-3.2956 18:44, 1 March 2013 (CET)
