Midnight-ish hash.

[edit] Expedition

After six days of considering hashes in remote volcanic wildernii in pouring rain, on an afternoon after work, in the dark... on the seventh day the Great RNG had mercy with me and provided me with an easy hash within walking distance. Of course, that was the day where I had to catch a bus to the airport at 4:30am, and snow and hail were hitting the town at an average speed of 15m/s.

So, I donneth the protective underpants of great warmth and set out for a midnight-ish geohash. I wasn't going to catch a lot of sleep anyway, so I went catching snow instead. I met public birdhouses, horizontal snowhoses along the streets and the occasional tourist in their thin jackets.

The hash itself was next to the wall of a detached house in the driveway, but since it didn't have any fences I just walked right there and back.

My evidencer has an almost dead battery, so it allowed me to take a full five pictures before turning itself off. But I took pictures. I expect to upload them as soon as I come across a charging cable.
