[edit] Plans

Tilley accidentally mentioned Geohashing at IRC.

20:57 < Tilley> hmm, väärä kanava, mutta eipä mitään.. Geohashingista siis kyse, joskus
                täälläkin oon maininnut. http://wiki.xkcd.com/geohashing/Main_Page

A conversation started and I looked if there were any reachable locations nearby. This location seemed reachable by bike. Plan was to cycle there and back using shortest route possible 2x31 km.

[edit] Expedition

Route seemed easy on paper, but recent improvements to road 51 caused few detours. Additional places visited included Peuramaa golf course and Maatilapuoti a hybrid between cafe and farmer's market.

Actual place was a swamp with lots of mosquitoes and raw cloudberries. A bottle of insect repellant would have been a nice addition to gear.
