The place is easy to reach. It is right beside the main Moscow-Minsk highway just south of the suburban town Odintsovo.


Московская правда arrived to find evidence of previous geohashers.


This was a fairly simple expedition: head to Odintsovo then follow the main street south from the railway station till it joins the highway.


Turns out this was a Tron achievement: South from Odintsovo station. West from the hash to Lesnoy Gorodok. Home from there. A fairly simple circular route.

Odinstovo seen from the railway station. You can see the buses and the yellow pyramids on top of the building on Google maps

The road south from Odintsovo railway station, ulitsa Verkhne-Proletarskaya, crosses a stream. The stream is marked on Google maps but not Openstreetmap.org.

The maps say follow ulitsa Verkhne-Proletarskaya but signage on the ground has it as ulitsa Markovskogo - улица Марковского - not such a problem, there's only one road. Its emergence on the main highway can be seen just behind the tall trees in the center of the photo. The foot marks are not mine! Someone's played Amundsen to my Scott.

Московская правда followed in the footsteps - which works out well as Московская правда doesn't have GPS to get the exact spot. Proof by induction: if evidence of the first party emerges, then I've got proof too. Note the newspaper's date, 20 Fevralya, and the date of upload (also 20 Feb.)


A pleasant stroll. Entered from Odintsovo station, walked south to hash (marked green), then took bus (marked red) to Lesnoy Gorodok station.

I don't have a GPS but I do have www.openstreetmap.org and MS paint. See map.
