Location[edit]

A small bush near a gas station on the A2 motorway.

Plans[edit]

Do mondays routine, then get the car, drive up to the service station, reach the coordinates

Expedition[edit]

First part all went as should. Getting to the gas station and finding a parking spot only 190 m from the hash. Big motorway,. five lanes going each direction. Around it: industrial area and meadows, terrain as easy as can get. Behind the station: a small, tiny, little bush. That's where the hash is. So it turns out that it is actually a tiny swamp. Small, but muddy. I got as close as 25 m, and went round, but to no avail. So there's the hash, in the middle of a 50m diameter pond/swamp, and it remained unhashed. Flip a coin between MNB and kingdom for a boat consolation.

Well, mother nature tries hard, and especially up there are 10 lanes of fast traffic day and night without ceasing. So one can't call her bitch, could you? See the last picture: there's a stork walking around the parking lot, begging for whatever leftover people stopping there toss at it.
