Location

On the bank of a stream in Goławiec, Poland.

Participants

Malgond and his son.

Plans

Malgond's plan is to go there by car, on the way back home from a family visit. The hash lies only a little off the route 44. However, the track to the hash along the stream doesn't look well; if driving on it is not possible, or the barrier is closed, we'll walk to the hash.

Expedition

This Sunday we were visiting our family in a nearby city. After the celebration, I have made a small detour on our way home to visit the geohash. I have left our usual route by turning into a road leading to the village of Górki and then towards Goławiec. Driving along the road connecting Górki and Goławiec, I have reached the bridge on Potok Goławiecki. Just before the bridge there was a small country track to the right, going along the stream. It was made of concrete slabs most of which were tilted, pitted, broken and covered with mud and sand. I was driving very slowly and cautiously, weaving a lot to avoid the largest pits. Soon, I have arrived at a place where the next slab was broken in half with the reinforcing steel rods sticking out. I concluded that crossing it is too risky for our car, so I got out with my younger son and we have walked the remaining forty meters or so.

What looked like a footbridge on Google Maps turned out to be a gas pipeline crossing the stream. The stream's bank was heavily overgrown therefore I have not risked getting any closer than the brink of the road, but if Google Maps aerial view is accurate, we were only 5 meters from the exact point. I have made some photos, had my son make a photo of myself and we walked back to our car. Then I had to back out the car carefully all the way back to the asphalt road, then we continued home.
