Torremocha de Jarama, a rural village in northeastern Madrid, Spain.




According to the intial inspection, the hashpoint was in a crop field.
Given that cereal is usually the crop in most of 40,-3, there was a possibility that whatever it was, it was still growing and weak. I didn't want to mess with any local farmer ruin any crop, especially given the proximity to my own village, so there was a possibility of a massive failure.


I set sail to the hashpoint, dragging girlfriend and hashcot along!

The road was quite familiar to me, the route was quite beautiful as usual.
The hashpoint was in the expected crop field, which was divided into 2 parts: one set as a fallow land and another actually on its way for the harvest on May. The hashpoint was in the fallow part :D.

I parked by the entrance of what seemed like a state-run center for the problematic youth. Great place to wander around a field with a GPS-enabled device in hand!

Even though my only tool was an android phone, I checked by the notable features around that the central blue dot was indeed remarkably reliable, even though it moved randomly sometimes.

My first successful geohash! :)
