In Halmejärvi, Valtimo. The point lies on a road.
- The Wife
Pastori had been called from the reserves to his former duty for two days to perform two funerals. After coming home today at 15:45 he definitely needed a quick way to relax and get back to the retirement mood. Luckily today's hashpoint was only 8,4 km as birds fly and the map showed it was directly on a small forest road. Let's go then!
Despite the hot weather Pastori and The Wife put on long-sleeved shirts and trousers with long bottoms, of course Nokia boots on and to be sure: hats with mosquito nets and deer ked jackets - and packed lots of insect repellent with them. By car the trip was 25 km, the whole way being on gravel roads.
The roads kept getting smaller and smaller. And look at that, the hashpoint was really right on the middle of the road and we wouldn't have needed the protective gear after all. There was even momentarily a reading of 0,7 meters on the screen, but we didn't get a picture of that. In my opinion, the pictured reading of couple of meters proves that we managed to reach the hashpoint sitting in the car right on the road. Just for once it was this easy and our trip was enough to restore Pastori to the retirement feelings quickly and completely.
