Three reasons lead to Manu and Reinhard visiting this geohash. First, Manu's parents used to visit Bayreuth at the end of each year and this geohash was very close to Bayreuth. Second, Reinhard wanted to cycle as much in 2009 as he did in 2008, which meant, he still had to cycle 78 km on the last two days of the year. Third, neither Manu nor Reinhard have been geohashing in this graticule yet, which also meant a rise in their minesweeper achievements. Looking at the map, they thought, it might be a good idea to drive to Coburg, throw Reinhard and his bike out of the car there, and drive on to Bayreuth for a shopping tour, which will take as long as it takes Reinhard to get there.
Reinhard had planned the trip from Coburg to Bayreuth before and hoped, that all roads would be clear of snow. Well, some google maps roads turned out to be minor forest paths and of course they weren't free of snow or ice at all, so Reinhard had to push his road bike soon ... for longer than he wanted to. It was several km of that bad paths (Reinhard didn't have a camera with him.) and too late to turn around. After an eternity a small village came into sight and there were snowfree roads again. It took Reinhard over four hours to cycle the 83 km to Bayreuth, where he met Manu and her parents on top of a multy-story car park. Wet and frozen Reinhard jumped into the car, and they drove on to the nearby hashpoint.
The hashpoint was besides a very small road, that was too narrow that two cars could pass each other. That's why Manu, her father and Reinhard hurried to walk to the hashpoint, while Manu's mother was waiting in the car. They were accompanied by Göker again, who lives in Manu's father's car. Furthermore, there were Simon and Procter, who seems to be related to Wischi. After taking some photos of the wet meadow, all returned to the car and drove back to Manu's parents' home.
