On a hunting ground near the M-501, between the exits Villamantilla and Villanueva de Perales.


Wingman (talk)


Checking this one the evening before, it looked pretty close. A less than 15 minutes motorcycle ride and then a walk of one or one and a half kilometers. However, as far as the street view can see, it is fenced. Anyway, I will give it a try tomorrow evening.


When I wanted to leave home at 17:15, the battery of the Goldwing was flat. This happens when she is not moved for a couple of weeks. The Goldwing is from 1985, but it was ahead of its time in that it had already some electronics which drains power from the battery even with ignition off. But this time it only stood still since my expedition 2021-09-30_39_-4, so only for eight days. Guess I shall need a new battery in the near future. Anyway, it was only a short ride, so I could well do without the long haul comfort of the Goldwing and I took die Krähe.

The area where the geohash resided had looked fenced on the Maps, and it indeed was, but nevertheless, it was accessible, at least on that day. There was a path leading almost direcly to the geohash which was not on the Maps, so the walk was actually shorter than expected, just about 750 meters. The terrain was quite benign, so this one was quick and easy.
