Again the hashpoint happened to land on one of Turku's islands. This time it was in a small field in the Island of Hirvensalo.
I noticed that the hashpoint is again quite easy to reach. I would have liked to go there during daylight but unfortunately it was already dark at 21 when I was able to leave home.
I drove to Hirvensalo and during the ride it begun to snow. Snowing was quite light, however, and I had no problems reaching the place.
I left my car at a bus stop. Then I continued towards the zero point on foot. It was only about 35 meters from the road. There was quite a lot of snow on the field. I had my long winter boots but still I managed to get some snow inside the boots. At some points there was snow up to my knees.
Navigating was easy and I managed to get into a position where my GPS showed 0m.
It was peaceful and dark. Only one car passed the place while I was trying to take pictures. No other tracks in the snow this time. Nice geohash again! :)
