Expedition[edit]

After a few failed attempts (hashes inside buildings with nobody at home), I finally managed to reach a hash in the virgin graticule of Aarhus, Denmark, where I live. Just a 9km bike ride from my workplace. And what a beautiful day for it, with spring at full force!

The hash was right next to a parking lot by some office building:

Neighbors of the hash 

A guy saw me checking my phone in a finding-my-way sort of way and asked if he could help with anything. I asked him if he had ever heard of Geohashing. As I suspected, he mistakenly thought he had, prompting a "No, hashing - not caching" response, plus an explanation.

My GPS fluctuated some, but judging from the Google imagery, the hash was located right behind these trees:

My trusty transportation device 

Trudging carefully into the undergrowth, I reached the hash...

Yes, that's me (and my camera) in the reflection... 

...and looked around...

I waited until around 5, but no other geohashers turned up. So I decided to continue on my adventure...

Close to the hash was a nice little forest path:

Denmark is beautiful in April... 
... if you like light green, of course
