In the garden of a detached house in München.
- 2010-04-10: Even though it's on private ground The T-Man and me will visit it around 4 p.m. -DerFlob 00:36, 10 April 2010 (UTC) -- This would be a really easy one, but I'm not in town this afternoon, so I won't come. You might like to take this challenge, though. --Zb 09:34, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
As already done on previous expeditions, DerFlob and The_T-Man met up at The_T-Man's place, which was only 2.1 km away from the hashpoint this time. They followed Ostpreussenstrasse until they noticed they had cycled too far. Then they took a turn into a side street, which turned out not to lead towards the hashpoint. The third attempt finally brought them into the immediate vicinity of the point, which was - as previously observed from satellite imagery - located in the garden of a detached house.
This is where the actual challenge began. Soon after their arrival, an old lady - apparently the owner/resident of said house - spotted the two geohashers and asked whether she could help them. The_T-Man gave his best shot at explaining the purpose of their mission, starting off a series of approaches, all of which resulted in the old lady answering "But I don't get the sense of it.". Which - taking the general idea of geohashing into consideration - probably meant she understood the previous explanations. However, since the two hashers didn't want to bother her and/or make her feel uncomfortable, they offered to stay out of the garden, said goodbye to her and prepared to leave. Then, however, the lady opened a window and told the two expedition members that she just had informed a neighboring relative of hers who would walk them through the garden. After visiting the exact coordinates and taking a photo with the relative of the old lady (who felt she was not properly dressed for a picture), DerFlob and The_T-Man thanked them for their generous cooperation efforts and left. On their way back home, they stopped by to take some pictures of the Süddeutscher-Verlag-Hochhaus, which is located about 300 metres away from The_T-Man's apartment.
