On the edge of a field in Palupera Parish, Estonia.


FelixTheCat (talk)


I was on a trip in the Baltic states, and of course hoping for interesting geohashes to show up. This one seemed pretty doable so I decided to stop by on my way from Jekabpils (Latvia) to Tartu (Estonia). The navigation system in my rental hashmobile did a pretty good job of guiding me along country roads, and I arrived at the field around 15:20. I found a space to park on the edge of the field and proceeded to walk the last 500m or so to find the hash, among some trees and bushes. It took a bit of dancing to get a low enough reading (always tricky in wooded areas), but I managed to get within the accuracy and took some pictures. I quickly went back to the car because there were several menacing-sounding dogs barking quite loudly somewhere nearby and I didn't really fancy having to meet them. I set the satnav to Tartu and drove off again.

The snow and low temperature make this a Frozen Geohash, and it's also the first reported expedition in the Tartu graticule!
