After a long day of GeoVexilling and Geocaching, it was already dark when I arrived at this GeoHash around 18:00. The "village" Baumhau (yes without S) has only 5 or 6 buildings belonging to maybe 3 farms. As far as I can tell it is the usual Bavarian countryside with some forests, little villages and meadows. By driving there I passed Alxing, where a multi family house still has it's Christmas lights installed all over the place! Beautiful. Unfortunately no snow around here right now, would have been even nicer with loads of snow!

Visiting this hash was a rather spontaneous idea. I read about Harleydavidsonandy's trip right on this page, looked the location up on the map, noticed it's just about half an hour away from where I live and decided to visit it.

The only problem was that it was forty minutes to midnight when I decided to go, so I kinda had to hurry. I couldn't find the camera I had with me the last time I went geohashing so I could only take (really really really bad) pictures of the place with my PDA. I ran to my car, set up the navigation system to tell me where to go and drove off at around 11:30 p.m.

One unspectacular car drive and seventeen minutes later I arrived at this ominous Baumhau place and took a few documentary pictures. Then I proceeded to finding the spot, which was - contrary to what Google Maps said - not on the road but on a pretty steep part of a small hill. I wanted to take pictures of the hash location, but the quality of the pictures was horrible. Because the PDA doesn't have any sort of flash, I had to use a flashlight, otherwise I would only have black pictures. But even with my light, the PDA could only make pictures of things that were about twenty centimeters away, anything else is beyond recognition... so I couldn't document the nice moon, the forest about a hundred meters away, the mist at the bottom of the hill, the town of Baumhau that was nicely visible. The only thing I could do was take a picture of the earth the hash was on - from twenty centimeters distance, at 11:56 p.m.

All in all, it was a nice trip, but only because it was so damn close to midnight, making the entire expedition a race against time. There was nothing to see at Baumhau, so that part wasn't too spectacular. I was done with my business, so I got back in my car and drove back home, already thinking about what to write here tonight.
