Shabolovka street, on the sidewalk.
To cure insomnia by having a long walk.
~7h walk home-hash-home. Some blisters, but otherwise feel great.
GPS refused to behave at the hash, probably because of the nearby Shuhov tower (TV/radio transmission), so categorising it as no GPS expedition.
The hash turned out to be not on the sidewalk but just at the side of the street, since sidewalks are separated from the street by some meters of trees an what would be grass in summer.
Walk distance: "My Tracks" on the phone shows 35.5 km. "Google Earth" - 34.5. After removing obvious GPS glitches with "GPX Editor" - 32.7. After downsampling initial 10k+ points to about 1400 - 32.6, further downsampling to about 100 points, which is too few - 32.1km. Finally approximating as 32.5km.
Tron: not a pure pure Tron, since I entered and exited shops etc, and made last few meters to the entrance of the building where I live the by the same path - but still within limits, as I understand.
Famous Shukhov Tower (1922) is about 600m south from the hash (as seen from the tram depot).
