In Korkeanalussuo, Sotkamo. The point lies in a swamp.
- The Wife
This is the second expedition of the multihash today. The first one.
So there we went. The Sun was shining warmly, and the route seemed to be very thickety, and it was all swamp, the above-mentioned 450 meters. Walking there was nevertheless relatively "easy", because the swamp was not very wet. There had also been some time since the ditches were made, so they presented not much difficulty. Additional nuisance was the attacks of the deer flys on us. Especially as Pastori had only t-shirt on. At it's worse I had about 5 attackers crawling over me, who though I was an elk. Deer fly is a nasty creature because it's almost impossible to kill. The only way to do that is to crush it between the tips of fingernails - that is if you can catch it.
We reached the point and the accuracy was relatively good on an open swamp: about two meters. Some mandatory pictures and quickly back to the car. When reaching the car we shaked the rest of the deer flies off our clothes and hair. Back home, we had been on our relaxing trip for eight hours, driven 180 km in mainly gravel roads, enjoyed the warmth (sweat), reached two hashpoints in the same day and spent an amazing expedition day inthe beautiful, quiet nature. Thus we were fully relaxed and ready for some new geohash-challenges.
