Rautavaara, Ylä-Luosta. The point lies on highway 75.
- The Wife
Inspired by their successes the previous day and further encouraged by the beautiful weather Pastori and Wife decided to visit today's hashpoint, which seemed to be right on the highway. It was quite a drive away, 66 km, but at these latitudes it's not really that far. Besides, it's always nice to observe the nature in the spring, all the birds and other things and the emerging greenery.
The trip there was fast, in fact so fast that when the point was only 9 km away, Wife had to hurry to input the coordinates into the GPS so they could check the exact speed limit for that road. In the end their technical skills were not enough or they just kept missing it. Pastori kepts alternating between 99 and 101 km/h and Wife had to try to take pictures in very unstable conditions. Additionally, Pastori taking a screencap of his phone would have been too dangerous to attempt at those speeds. So they went past the point and made a u-turn and drove back and on the third try Pastori gave up and just stopped at the point. This was a good idea since they got an accuracy of 0.587 m.
The trip home they took some shortcuts through some smaller sandy roads which were just fine to drive on with Pastori and Wife's tiny car. It was nice to stop in the middle of a forest and listen to birds and breath in the nature.
All in all they drove 147 km, took 3.5 h, reached 1 hashpoint and got lifted spirits.
