On Kallisensuora street in Limingantulli, Oulu.
The point on a topographic map: 
About two kilometres from home, in the middle of a street. Since there are many shops, stores and businesses in this area, there is usually a lot of traffic in the daytime. Therefore, I will go walking or cycling at night when it is quiet.
I decided to go on foot and to do a Tron achievement since it would be trivial to do. It was snowing fairly heavily, and there were several centimetres of fresh powder snow everywhere, but it was not too much. I jogged most of the way (maybe about three fourths of the distance) and walked sometimes when I felt tired or needed to look at my phone or the GPS receiver. I went from Mäntylä to Lintula, Höyhtyä and Nokela and finally to Limingantulli where I found the hashpoint with barely any effort.
Even though it was already past 11 pm, there was still some traffic that I had to mind: some people were driving to and from the fuel station. Once there was a quiet moment, I went and took a couple of quick photos and ran across the road. I then sprinted to and over Limingantie road along a not exactly legal route because there were no better alternatives. I did not inconvenience anyone else though, so it is fine. I continued jogging to Äimärautio and back to Mäntylä. Making sure I would not fail the Tron achievement back in the yard was very easy because my footprints were clearly visible in the fresh snow.
I ended up traversing a distance of 5.6 kilometres. According to the GPS receiver, my average speed was 7.5 km/h while moving and 6.1 km/h overall. The whole trip took a little less than an hour.
