Kuopio, Jynkkä-Levänen, Rauhalahdentie. The point lies in the middle of the street.
- The Wife
Pastori and Wife reporting for duty. The loooooooong long winter has still not left their homestead. The morning of their trip to the ”south” Pastori tried to get a skiing start on top of the strong snow, hoping to see at least some sun and dry lands. Alas, reality turned out to be wet snow straight to their faces even in the south.
But first the important bit which is the hashpoint, which was super easy for the first one of the year. On a scale from 1 to 10 (1 being easy), this was -5! The point was on a bus stop in the borough of Jynkkä-Levänen in Kuopio. This graticule and place is actually almost a couch potato achievement from Tilley's old home. Greetings to Tilley's daughter from the backyard of her first home!
Eager after the first success Pastori honed in on the point in the next graticule 61 27 as well. The point would have been 500m off the highway on a muddy and broken road and then another 50m into the forest. It would have been achievable but they were missing their Wellingtons. Also, they weren't really eager to go into the Finnish thicket type forest. The points in their own graticule are pretty much the same. They were, however, eager to reach the end of their journey and so they continued on their way to their 3-year-old grandchild's birthday party.
Pastori and Wife will be vacationing on the southwest coast of Finland for a week. It remains to be seen if they catch more fish or hashpoints. They certainly have the drive, we'll see if anything bites.
