In graticule 49/8 the Geohash of Sunday, January 25th 2009 is located in a quarter of Karlsruhe named Waldstadt. It is in a small street called Küstriner Straße

[edit] Expeditions

[edit] Fluxkompensator

Given the fact that today's hash was located in a tiny street at the outskirts of Karlsruhe, it was easy to locate it with google maps' satellite pictures only. In addition to meeting Koepfel at the hash, I brought along three more people and my little daughter in her bicycle trailer. One of them already came along with me to hashpoint 2008-11-28_49_8, my daughter was with me on 2009-01-05_49_8.

I reckon this tiny street seldomly sees so many visitors at the same time.

[edit] Planning

For my very first Expedition, I plan to arrive at the Hash at about 13:30, hang around for a few minutes and then take the 13:46 bus from Kolberger Straße. Also, I've been there before on September 5th 2008, so it might qualify as a Déjà Vu Geohash, though I can only supply a photo taken 100 meters away from the Hash in an anjacent street. Does it still count as proof?

I arrived at Jägerhaus at about 13:06 [2], then continued by foot and took a few photos on the way. I arrived at the Hash at about 13:17 [3], located on a driveway in front of a garage. This [4] picture shows the current coordinates, the next one also shows a screenshot, which is more readable
