[edit] Plans

Shane and Bryn are attempting a double-hash by cycling from North Berwick station via 2013-04-02 56 -2 and 2013-04-02 56 -3 to Larbert Station.

[edit] Expedition

We got the train to North Berwick exactly as planned, and found our way to the first location without incident. The field was recently ploughed but a dry surface made it very easy to walk on, and we were confident we were not damaging a crop. The location was marked with a pebble, presumably dropped from orbit by a GPS satellite (a service not widely advertised).

We then cycled off in the general direction of Edinburgh with the wind behind us. Lunch was at the harbour cafe in Musselburgh before we joined the North Edinburgh cycle network heading for our second geohash of the day...
