Plans

It wasn't too far from my home (3.5 km) - in fact, rather close the route I ocassionally use for running. I figured it could be reached by a short bike ride.

Expedition

Venturing out during the early afternoon hours after having studied the map as thoroughly as I saw fit, I was under the impression of entertaining a fairly precise idea as to where the hash could be found. Indeed, I ventured in the general direction of the point with little to no effort.

The paths across and around the wetlands are winding and treacherous, however, and I was for some reason unable to view maps on my phone. Such are the forces that make short bike rides rather long. Later when reviewing the route taken, I ponder if I actually managed to trace out a Weierstrass function unknowingly. Relying on coordinates, and the eventual return of the map functionality to my phone, the goal was reached. It was indeed a rather featureless soccer field, which lend itself to a brief photo session, the conclusion of which was followed by my immediate departure from the scene.
