[edit] Location

Yikes, only 9 km from our home in front of or in a garden in Kelkheim, we got to go there!

[edit] Plans

Get there as early as possible as we all had plans in the afternoon/evening.

[edit] Expedition

We picked up QuarterCacher at home and went to Kelkheim. Apparently QuarterCacher had been there just a couple of weeks ago,so we knew pretty well where to go.

Driving by the hash we weren't sure if it's inside the garden of the house in the corner or behind it but considering that we found no way to get behind it we finally decided (after arguing the point of disturbing the poor house owner and deciding to give it a try anyway) to ring and ask for permission to enter the premises.

A nice young lady opened the door and after much explaining by all three of us (should have picked a single spokes-person really ... ah, next time) we handed her the Activegeohasher poster and got permission to enter the garden.

The hash was pretty much in the middle of the garden and we took a couple of photos of the hash, the garden and ourselves at the hash (with a little assistance from the owner - thanks again if you read this :).
