Plans[edit]

Eupeodes plans to go there after work, expected to be there somewhere between 6 and 6:30 pm. Not sure if attempt will be made, depends on time and energy.

JwB is considering going there, depending on the way the afternoon rolls.

Expedition[edit]

Eupeodes[edit]

In the morning I left my sleeping place and went to work by bus. Somewhere between 4:30 and 5 in the afternoon I left work and took the bus to Amsterdam. In Amsterdam I transferred to a metro, then to another metro and for the last part again a bus. In the time I traveled the rain increased to a not so comfortable level, but since I already was at a few hundred meters from a perfectly reachable hash it was not an option to not go. So I walked in the rain to where the spot should be, my gps failed a bit in pointing out the exact location but after a minute or so it led me to the place where I expected the point to be based on google maps. Getting more and more wet I took the mandatory pictures before heading back to the busstop. Ten minutes after getting out of the bus I took the next bus to the metro. After this a train brought me close to home and a final bus completed the trip. And it only took one hour more than my usual traveling time.

JwB[edit]

I was going to visit my parents after work, and this was a minor detour. Traffic was ok considering time of day, and the rain pouring at an increasing pace. Preparation was ok, so drove there without hassle. Hopped out the car in a parking lot, and continued the last 150 m around the block. Found the spot where maps had shown it to be, next to a tree in some shrubs. two pics and a screenshot.
