In a forest alongside the Isar river, south of Grünwald near München
After finishing the written part of my Abitur tomorrow, I'm glad to go geohashing again. Don't know yet when exactly I'll show up, but I guess around 4 p.m.? --DerFlob 21:01, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
- The weather today isn't that nice, but I'll visit the hash anyway at about 6 p.m. :) --DerFlob 06:03, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
The_T-Man took a suburban train to Rosenheimer Platz in downtown München, from where on he got to Grünwald by taking the tram line 25. The hashpoint, which was about 2,7 km away from the tram station, was located in a forest, but fairly easily accessible because there were a lot of small paths. To get to the exact (or, as it turned out later, rather approximate) location, he had to go about 30 m up a hillside next to the path until his GPS receiver told him that he had reached the place. After taking a small break and leaving a message for potential followers, The_T-Man got on his way back home again, having enjoyed the silence of the forest and the fact that (after about 2 weeks of bad weather) there had been no rain during his expedition.
DerFlob took a suburban train to Höllriegelskreuth, from where he walked the remaining 3,2 km. Initially, the geohash was planned to be a No Battery Hash, but since he was already lost after 5 minutes, not finding the Grünwalder Bridge, he decided to take out his GPS receiver. After some initial difficulties everything went quite smoothly. Unfortunately, due to the inaccuracy of the GPS receivers, he didn't find the exact same spot to be the hashpoint as The T-Man did before. But they were only about 30-40 meters apart. He arrived there at about 6:20 pm. On the way home he took a slightly different, but longer route towards the train station, closer to the Isar. When DerFlob got back to the train station, he arrived just in time to catch a suburban train back to München - or at least he thought so. As it turned out six stations later, he took the wrong direction and was at the terminal stop in Wolfratshausen... After waiting an additional 10 minutes, the train turned and headed towards München. Due to this incident he arrived about 50 minutes later at home than originally planned, at about 9:15 pm.
