Expedition[edit]

This was Sourcerer's 200th expedition! Three months later it turned out to be expedition 199 but he celebrated anyway!

Planning two hashpoints spanning midnight: 2015-02-21 52 1 :: 2015-02-22 52 1

This was becoming routine being the 8th consecutive expedition. Park the car. Walk along the field perimeter to get as close as possible. Divert into the field avoiding the crop (oil seed rape seedlings). Wait for midnight and get the evidence photo. Today the Garmin and HTC devices disagreed on the location by about 12 or 15 metres. I zeroed both devices to be sure. There seems to be a degree or randomness in GPS locations, probably caused by atmospheric refraction (well documented in other areas of radio communication - caused by layers or air at different temperatures and densities). At the moment of uploading the photo, both devices were in good agreement. Only a minute later the point had drifted up to 15 metres.

The Norwich graticule has been creeping up the activity ratings this month. It's not easy to outperform other graticules with 43% ocean and only 28 days in the month. It's fun though!
