In a forest near Ahokkala, Kontiolahti.

The point on a topographic map: [1]



At last, a reasonably accessible hashpoint on a day when I do not have too much other stuff to do. I would have to cycle about 15 kilometres each way and walk a little in the forest. It is already late enough spring, so there would not be too much snow. I set off at about 19:50. The sun was shining at low altitude and about to set later at 21:23. The temperature was 5 °C, and it would go down to 0 °C by the time I got back home two hours later.

Nothing particularly interesting happened. I cycled to the nearest point on the road, locked the bicycle and jogged to the hashpoint. I ended up doing a small detour because I was not paying enough attention to the GPS receiver screen, and GPS seemed to dance a lot at the hashpoint as well. There was enough snow in some points in the forest that some got in my boots. It should all be gone in a week or two except in very shady places.

According to my GPS receiver, the length of my trip was 31.0 km, of which I cycled 30.5 km and walked 0.5 km.




I filmed most of the journey to the geohash with an action camera that I had attached on my head. There is nothing particularly interesting at any point, so feel free to skip ahead.
