Veluwezoom National Park, Rheden.
I had to go to Nijmegen for work today, so this hash was pretty close by. I was planning to stop by on my way back home, hopefully before dark. Unfortunately work took until 17:30, and with the hash being about 30 minutes away it would be tricky.
Veluwezoom NP is quite a large and empty area, but there are a few narrow, winding roads leading inside. I drove as close to the hash as possible and parked the hashmobile. I then followed my GPS to a spot pretty close by in an area covered with thorny bushes, which made my GPS dance very uncomfortable. Only after recording a "success" did I realise that I wasn't at the hashpoint at all; my GPS had picked a different point from random keystrokes it received when it bounced around in my pocket! The actual hash point was about 800 metres away, so I started running to make it before sunset.
The hash turned out to be in a wide open area, which must be very pretty and pleasant when it's sunny and dry. During evening twilight in early March, with thick cloud cover and drizzle setting in, not so much. I quickly took some pictures and then hurried back to my car and went home.
