Almost on the shore of the lake situated nearby the village I live in.




I wanted to take bike and go there before the sun sets.


During the last few weeks I was permanently watching geohashing app on my phone, eagerly awaiting for my first geohash to appear somewhere close to me. Finally today a geohash was generated within my reach! I was really excited during the whole day although I had to be at work.

Expedition itself din't require much planing. I was familiar with the place as the hash was on the shore of the beatiful lake where I go swimming in the summer. All I had to do was to take my bike and ride past my village near the forests. But because I got home quite late today (arround 17:00) I had to go imnediately, because sun was already almost set. After about 15 minutes I got to the spot.

I turned my phone on and tried to get to the exact spot. It has quite weak GPS reciever, so the margin of error was quite large (about 10 meters on average, see screenshot). During the process I was going round and round so I am pretty sure I managed to step right on there sometime during my stay.

I took some pictures and listened to the sounds of the ducks which were floating on the lake and ravens or crows hidden somewhere in the nearby forests. Meanwhile dusk was upon me, so I turned myself to my way home.

The whole expedition took me about one hour and I really enjoyed it.
