Participants[edit]

Plans[edit]

Get to Oker by train, then walk about 4km to the coordinates.

Expedition[edit]

I got to Oker by train. Because I am stupid, I went there in the evening and the twilight had already started. However, I started walking up the mountains. After dusk, I used my flashlight to find the way.

At some point, I was supposed to turn right. However, there was no path to my right. I went a bit forward, and a bit back, and didn't find anything. So I went back even further and found something that might be the path, so I went that way. After a while, it turns out that it wasn't a path, but I continued. I went down the hill, crossed a very thin stream and then went up the hill. This sounds easy, but it was dark and I'm glad I made it.

I was back on the path now. It wasn't really a path though, more like “well, all the other possibilities certainly aren't the path”. After continuing to walk, I finally arrived at the coordinates, which were right on the “path”.

On the way back, I stayed on the “path”, which became more and more path-like. After a while, I arrived at the spot where I was supposed to turn right, and yeah, in hindsight, that was the path, but it wasn't very different from it's surroundings, so it was hard to make it out. Finally, I made it back to Oker, and from there, back to home.
