first Halloween-Geohash in 48 12 (Hans and Tomcat)
After dusk broke in on their GC-Tour to Bad Abbach, Hans and Tomcat decided to make a small detour to visit today´s 48 12-Hashpoint an do a little Halloween-Lighting there.

I didn't have time in the afternoon, but since this hashpoint was relatively close to the next day's point, I decided to visit them both in a night expedition, getting to the second point at midnight and returning by train from Eggmühl. I had always wanted to try cycling a longer distance at night, and this seemed like a good opportunity.
As always, I left home much later than intended, at 22:00, and just barely made it to the first point (this one) before midnight. At 23:55, I parked my bike on the forest track near the hashpoint. I couldn't quite make out how Tomcat and Hans managed to get to the exact coordinates, since (at least according to my GPS) the hashpoint was in the middle of a thorny thicket, but I did get close enough to count it as reached as well (the GPS photo was taken on the opposite side of the thicket - I did get closer than that on the track).
I had planned to do some lightwriting too, but since I wanted to catch the train in Eggmühl at 1:07, I had to hurry, so I continued right away.
