dawidi and Tomcat[edit]

Today we performed an "inverse drag-along", for lack of a better achievement to call it by.

The hashpoint happened to be very close to my friend Tomcat's home (he was not yet registered at the time) in Eilsbrunn, and it's a long uphill ride for me to get there from Regensburg. He cycled to the hashpoint first, then rode downhill and met me at around two thirds of the way, after which we went to the coordinates again and arrived around sunset.

The exact point was in a currently unused (and dry!) field, so this time it was reachable and GPS reception was fine.

It was about to get dark, so we just took a few quick pictures and left.

Déjà vu![edit]

I just found proof (not perfect, but acceptable, I hope) for achieving the Déjà Vu Geohash there - I was there on 2003-02-02 with my dad! (The images have only been downsampled with IrfanView, leaving the EXIF tag intact.)
