In a field not far from a road in Kiel-Meimersdorf.

[edit] Plans

This is not my home graticule, but I was going to visit family there - and saw that the geohash was very close to where I would be that morning! So I thought I'd try to make it. I also wanted to try to get my family to come along.

[edit] Expedition

Drove to the road closest to the geohash. Tried to convince the others to come along as well, but they all refused, so I set off alone.

I followed by satnav's directions, but going south down the road turned out not to be useful: there was a hedge between it and the field all the short way I went, so I turned back to where I had seen an opening. I took a picture of the field from there.

From there, it was easy: the field was covered with short grass and was easy to walk over - no fences, ditches, thorns, or other nastiness.

After a short walk, I was able to correct my course to walk directly towards the hashpoint; then I did the "GPS dance" to try to get my satnav to display the exact coordinates.

When I got it exact (to the five decimal places that my satnav showed), I wanted to take a picture - but the camera's battery was so low that it turned itself off before I could take a picture. Bummer :( But at least I have a tracklog to show that I was there. (And since my family didn't come along, I didn't need a picture of them to prove the Drag-Along achievement or whatever it's called.)

...though since it was Sunday and I was dressed accordingly (white shirt with button-down collar; tie; suit trousers), I suppose I could have proved I got the Formal Attire achievement. Ah well; I'll just claim it without proof.
