In Rasimäki, Valtimo, near the house Tornio.

Recently we have been getting a lot of good hashpoints near where we live. Again only a few kilometers, and the place is easy, too, almost directly on a road. A must visit!
Despite the rainy morning we left for the hashpoint, had about 5 km to go with a car. Temperature on the plus side and the rain had taken away the good conditions for skiing that had prevailed several weeks. Otherwise Pastori would most likely have gone all the way to the hashpoint with skis.
Neighbour told us they had kept the field roads ploughed because of logging going on in the woods behind them, so we got within 30 meters of the hashpoint with the car. We put snow shoes on and went out searching. Because of the trees apparently blocking the satellite reception we couldn't get a closer reading than 14 meters despite waiting for a while and initializing the search a couple of times. Well, can't help it. Definitely we were "there", because there were no that kind of obstacles that could have blocked the exact spot. There was mild rain the whole time, but it was a nice trip outside, if not for the geohashing we probably wouldn't have gone out the whole day.
