Geohashing Day! It was very important to visit a hashpoint today, so I chose the nearest one. When driving to Schweinfurt for work, I stayed on the Autobahn A70, which I left at the exit "Haßfurt". A short route over country roads later I stopped near the hashpoint. When I got out of the car, the battery in both my GPS units were dead. I switched the around a bit and one of the units worked again. I walked along the road to the correct field, one of the passing cars honked at me although I was walking in the grass on the road shoulder. When I saw that the strange plants growing on the field had enough space between them to walk, I went up to the hashpoint. I didn't do any great celebration and left no marker, because I was already getting late, so I just took a few pictures, walked back to the car and went to work. There I arrived 4 minutes late.

Danatar earned the 2010 Geohashing Day achievement
