Malgond plans to go. It's just 220 meters off his daily commute to work!

Planned detour from my daily commute routine. The point is on the street next to the second parking spot. This is how it looks in 3D view...

Expedition[edit]

I haven't ventured for a geohashing expedition for a long time already, therefore I could not miss such an opportunity. According to Google Maps, the hash was located on a residential street very close to the road I drive to work every day.

The expedition itself was trivial. On my way to work I had turned right on an intersection I usually travel straight through and after negotiating another few turns and driving along narrow residential streets I have arrived at the spot. Because it was on the pavement, I wanted to drive right through it to get a rather mediocre version of speed racer achievement - the legal speed there is only 30 km/h. I was alone in the car this time snd had no tripod or holder therefore documenting that feat proved difficult and not particularly safe: I was trying to hold the camera straight while steering with the other hand. A few attempts to drive along the hashpoint failed or produced unsatisfactory results. I have parked the car nearby and get out to get some still shots.


After that I got back in the car and made another couple of circles around the neighbourhood trying to get a more or less steady recording. The sun was shining right into my windscreen making the attempts still more difficult. Finally I got a good shot and drove off to work.

Announcement[edit]

To the mysterious viewer of my video from a Kraków Centrum E network:

(Yes, I am sooo evil and I keep logs of my HTTP server!)

Please, oh please, show up on this wiki! There were never too many geohashers in Kraków - and in the whole Poland in fact. Judging from the lack of new expeditions I am currently the only semi-active one in the whole country! I feel so lonely... It would be nice to meet some other person crazy enough to go to random places. Drop me a note on my talk page or something. Cheers!
