Location[edit]

In the middle of gen. Stefana Grota Roweckiego street in Sosnowiec, Poland, near highway S86 overpass.

Participants[edit]

Malgond with family.

Plans[edit]

After two months of difficult hashes that required advanced navigation aids or arcane navigation skills, finally there's an easy no-batteries one just for me - a person not (yet) into the game enough to buy myself an expensive device just for silly expositions expotitions as Christopher Robin the silly old Bear would name them (sorry for initial incorrect reference - my memory is failing me). It's a very lucky hash as we'll be driving along S86 that day anyway - family business! We'd try to be there at meetup time if all the business goes well. I've found a nice-looking restaurant nearby (at 50.3217 N,19.0955 E) and we'll go for dinner there (if it will be open; Saturday is a bit risky, many such places hold weddings on Saturdays). If any geohasher wants to join the meetup please look for us there or in the other restaurant just to the west of it. Look up photos from my previous expeditions to see how I look like.

Expedition[edit]

Our business in these parts went exceptionally well and we were ahead of time. For a moment, I had considered waiting for the meetup time, but our boys were already complaining that they are hungry. Therefore, taking into account that the chance of meeting other geohashers is nearly zero, I have decided to start right away. This means I won't earn any point towards the centurion achievement this time...

We have driven almost up to the point, but stopped at a nearby supermarket for some more shopping and I took the time to instruct the older son how to take photos through the windscreen and to take some test snaps to train his aim. Then we drove off.

We have driven past the hashpoint, then turned back in a nearby parking lot only to go back in the other direction while filming the passing. Here is the video, and below is an additional proof by Google Street View:

After that, we have driven right to the restaurant I mentioned in the plan - for dinner. Fortunately, it was really large and despite hosting a wedding and a First Communion for two different families, it still had another dining room for us to eat.
