Plans

Baarde has taken the 11:45 train from Lyon to Sain-Bel and will hike the remaining 8 km to the geohash. He expects to be there at 14:30.

Expedition

Courzieu is located in the Monts du Lyonnais, a low-altitude mountain range west of Lyon. After exiting Sain-Bel, I climbed uphill and hiked southwards toward Courzieu. After 11 km I reached two antennas near the summit of a small mountain. There I stopped to eat my lunch (hard-boiled eggs and bananas) and enjoy the view on the Brévenne river valley.

It was a warm and sunny afternoon. I had food and water for myself, a spare battery for my phone, a book to pass the time. I considered waiting there for someone to show up or for the clock to mark 16:00. Unfortunately, there was not a moment to lose, so I packed my stuff and walked to the hashpoint, which was a little bit downhill from the antennas.

After recording proof, I walked back to Sain-Bel, totaling a distance of nearly 24 km. Not bad.
