Today's location is in the Gramschatzer Wald forest, not far from Rimpar and Güntersleben. The hill is called Binsenberg and is covered mostly in beech trees with oaks and a few conifers.
The hashpoint is only 0.08° latitude from Danatar's home, so he decided to cycle there before lunch.
The road had a bicycle track next to it until Rimpar, which I knew from another expedition, the rest was part highway and part forest track. Navigating in the forest without GPS is difficult, but I took the track visible in this map (Bavarian Land Survey Office and I'm sure that I got within 50 metres of the hashpoint.
I took the same way back (without the bit where I did not take the correct turn) and arrived exactly at lunchtime.
Distance cycled: 14.2 + 13.6 =27.8 km. Top speed 53 km/h downhill on the highway, 45 on the forest track near the hashpoint (covered in wet leaves but not as dangerous as it seems, it was a straight part).
