Near a house and highway 74 in Kissamäki, Joensuu.

The point on a topographic map: [1]



I have been unlucky with geohash locations lately, but today I was finally able to reach one. Most have ended up being too far from my home or in water which has not yet been frozen thickly enough to be safe to traverse. This one was in an easy location, and the conditions were manageable: temperature 0 °C and sleeting slightly.

I cycled along the roads of Karsikko and highway 74 to the intersection of the house, and I left the bicycle at the edge of the forest. There was a new cleared line in the forest that did not exist on any map or aerial photo, and I could follow it towards the hashpoint. I only had to walk the last twenty metres in deep snow which was not really deep, maybe twenty centimetres at most. I took a few pictures and left because I was running out of daylight.

I was back at home at about 3 pm when it was already slowly getting darker. The sun had already set at 14:31. I could have gone to the geohash at the Saturday meetup time at 4 pm, but it would have been pitch-black by then, and I would not have been able to see much or take any presentable photos.
