Participants[edit]

Plans[edit]

Eupeodes plans to go there after work. Be there somewhere between 1715 and 1800 hours (work a full day, cycle to the hash and leave the area before sunset).

Expedition[edit]

Somewhere in the morning it started raining and it continued long in the afternoon. This made me doubt whether I would go or not. Stayed long at work and somewhere after 5 it got dryish. I decided to go for it at half past 5, so 45 minutes before sunset, it would only take me 15 minutes to get there, 5 minutes at the spot and 15 minutes to get back. So still very possible before sunset. Well... It turned out differently. Although it was only 5 kilometers in a straight line over the road the distance doubled. Also 750 meters from the hash there was a sign telling it was not allowed to cycle further or even bring your bike along. So I left the bike and continued on foot. Reaching it wasn't hard and I took the pictures. Now I only had 10 minutes left before sunset in which I had to walk back to my bike and get out of the area. 10 km in 10 minutes is a bit to ambitious, and the trip would lead me past the house of the ranger. I was close to the southern edge so I decided to leave the dunes to the south. Now I only had the problem that I was at the south of the area while my house is at the North. I had to cycle around it. The total distance I cycled was 27.8 km, and I walked 1.6 km. And the whole expedition only took me 2 hours (where I expected half an hour).
