2.5km southwest of Seeburg, which in turn is southwest of Spandau.
Today's battleship location is: B 5
- plypkie is planning to ride his bike.
- lyx, relet and amuzulo are planning to take a bus from Spandau, which should pass along the road ca. 16:05. Return ca. 17:00, hence games will be provided.
Afternoon forecast calls for 70% chance of rain, although just "light rain showers", less than 0.1mm. Temperature is supposed to climb to 16C or 17C. Should be a decent day.
plypkie plans to leave home by bike at around 2pm, and be at the hash point near 4pm. All plans are adjustable if someone else wants to meet at a different time.
The lone member of Team Bicycle, plypkie, got on his bike at about quarter to 2, and started off down the road. He went through the middle of town past the Reichstag and Strasse der 17. Juni, and kept on riding seemingly forever...although it wasn't actually forever, it was only about an hour to reach Spandau. There's actually a pretty nice bike route to Spandau that stays slightly off the main road, which was nice.
After Spandau, his GPS led him down a little tiny road through the forest, and then he popped out in Seeburg...and while not paying attention, almost missed it. Seeburg is tiny. He waited around for Team Bus to catch up, which took about 20 minutes, meeting them at about 4:15 as the sun was setting.
Together at last
We walked down the road, almost getting run down by a foul-mouthed Superhero (a cyclist dressed in brightly-colored Spandex). Eventually finding a dirt trail, we followed that through the forest, finding some people who were apparently having some sort of sunset picnic. The weather was still unusually warm, allowing tshirts to be worn while walking.
The hash point was in the middle of an empty field bordered by trees. The sun had already gone down, and plypkie spotted some sort of owl flying over the tree-tops. Some juggling ensued, and some vegan cookies were eaten.
Eventually, plypkie rode off into the darkness in the direction of the Spandau S-bahn, and the rest patiently waited for the bus to Potsdam where they would catch a regional train home.
