This hashpoint was located east of Hof in the Rosenheim, Germany graticule, in a small forest. The nearest road passes under a railroad bridge - from there, a dirt road leads to the forest, and a tractor path can get you close to the hashpoint.


Jeremy will attend, arriving by bicycle from Waging in the late afternoon.


Jeremy 17:45[edit]

I set out from Waging am See by bike (with my towel, of course) at about 17:00. The weather was miserable, alternating between light and heavy rain for the entire trip. When I arrived in Hof, I had to guess the rest of the route, because I didn't have a map or a GPS unit. However, I found a dirt road that ran parallel to the railroad tracks toward the woods. From there, a tractor path ran through the woods, connecting the fields north and south of the geohash. A fence on the east side of the path kept me about 500 feet from the hash itself - so I got as close as I could before snapping some pictures, enjoying a locally brewed beer, and heading back. I left behind some broken sticks spelling out "xkcd" for anyone who should stumble upon them.
