Today's location is in a vineyard on the outskirts of Würzburg. It's mostly for white wine but there are also a few rows of red grapes. The different vineyards' owners seem to be the Juliusspital (founded 1579) and the Bürgerspital zum Heiligen Geist (founded 1316).



Déjà-vu Expedition[edit]

As the hashpoint is only 4 km linear distance from my home, I decided to go for the déjà-vu, walk and midnight achievements. I had never been to that vineyard, so I had to go there before 2008-10-08 for the déjà-vu to take effect. I took the bus until Hans-Löffler-Straße bus stop, then climbed down to the hashpoint. I marked the hashpoint and on the track next to it my future presence, took some pictures to prove the déjà-vu and returned, also by bus. P.S.: Since 2008-10-16, the rules for the déjà-vu achievement state that the location must have been visited before the geohash coordinates are announced.

Official Expedition[edit]

Planning: I will walk there, using Randersackerer Straße and I'll arrive at midnight. At 00:19 the last bus will start at Hans-Löffler-Straße and to get there it takes 8 minutes, so I won't have much time. As I already marked the hashpoint, I will not have to search long for it.

Walking went well, but I took another road because Randersackerer Straße partly had no sidewalk. I reached the track next to the hashpoint at 23:50 and got within one meter of my chalk mark without needing the lamp (I'm good at finding previously known locations again). I waited there until 23:59, then took the last steps between the rows of vines. After taking the usual pictures I again climbed the vineyard to Hans-Löffler-Straße and took the 00:19 bus.

I walked all the way to the hashpoint (no photo), arrived at midnight (pictures 5-8, especially 5) and I was there before (all daylight photos, especially 1).

This déjà-vu ribbon was earned before the rules were changed to "visited the location before the geohash coordinates were announced", so I'll keep it.
