[edit] Plans

After deciding that the late season skiing was no longer much good, I checked the map for today's hash point. I saw that it was in an easily accessible location not to far from my house, so I figured out how to use my garmin for this and went for an early season bike ride.

[edit] Expedition

This was my first ever geohash, as well as my first time riding this early in the season, so I had to get a few things sorted out first. I had plenty of warm athletic clothing from cross-country skiing, so that wasn't much of an issue. It didn't take me too long to figure out how to set my garmin to track a point, so I set it to the hash coordinates and got going.

I rode to the point along the road that was closest to the hash, got off, and started walking through the slushy field. At this point, I realized something a bit more sturdy than running shoes would have been a good idea. Oh well, the geohash was just under 100 meters from the road, so it was a easy walk regardless.
