[edit] Plans

I saw the location was in reach and my parents were planning to do a daytrip anyway, so I asked them if we could stop for a moment at the hashpoint.

[edit] Expedition

We just went there by car and my dad stopped at the closest place possible, about 100m from the hash. They waited for me while I got out with my cam and the GPS device and went to look for the exact spot. First I misinterpreted the direction a bit and ended up in some bushy place behind some place containing car wrecks. Then I went back and found out I had to be at the other side of the road. To find the spot I had to walk back and forth a bit. The GPS device is meant for car navigation and doesn't update itself unless I move fast and far enough, which decreases the actual accuracy. But as far as I can check I passed over the exact spot while walking back and forth. I made some pictures of the surroundings and quickly returned to my parents to continue the rest of our trip.
