Setting off into the cold, they managed to get all the way to Rimpar without any problems. When next faced with a giant hill, they decided to try the adjacent cycling path. Bad idea. Several short whiles late they finally found their way back to the road, and vowed not to enter any more forests.
Upon approach to the coordinates they found Danatar's car, seemingly abandoned.
Danatar was at work, catching up on the stuff he hadn't been able to complete during the week, when 3pm was announced as meetup time (as it is every Saturday during the cold half of the year). He stopped what he was doing and drove towards home = towards the hashpoint. After following the country road for a while, he turned onto a field track in Bergtheim and followed it until he reached the hashfield. Not having looked at the satellite image before starting, he drove halfway around the field before he found out that the northern edge was nearest to the hashpoint. He parked the car and walked back. thepiguy and srs0 were nowhere to be seen, so Danatar decided to go to the hashpoint alone. Carefully he stepped between the sugar beet plants and finally reached the hashpoint. There was, surprise!, a sugar beet plant there.
While looking around he saw two cyclist stop at his car, then srs0 and thepiguy cycled around the field towards him. While Danatar was going out of the field, thepiguy was going in, to the hashpoint. Afterwards all three celebrated Halloween on the field track. The Canadians then jumped back on their bikes to cycle home in the cold while Danatar returned to his heated car.
