On the border between the town of Winterthur and the village Elsau



Have been looking for a geohash nearby for more than a week now. And finally one in my hometown. Searched my GPS, downloaded all the maps on my phone and created an account for the wiki. Planing on cycling there after work. ETA: 18:00


Left from work a little early to use the last bits of daylight. The start didn't went that well, because my bike light didn’t work and I had to make a detour to fetch a headlamp. The way there was quite cold and exhausting because I had the wind face on. Nevertheless it wasn't very far so I made it without much troubles. The Hash was situated at the edge of the forest near the "St. Gallerstrasse" wasn't that difficult to find but it had quite a lot of snow for my sneakers. The way back was quite fun with the wind in the back. Looking forward to the next expedition.

  • By Bike total 8 km
