[edit] Expedition

Juja, Manu and Reinhard are spending the weekend in the Thuringian forest and would have passed the hash on their drive from Jena by just some meters. On a map the hash looks close to the Autobahn. In fact, the expressway uses two parallel tunnels and the ground is about 100 meters above. Luckily, there was also a major forest path close to the hash, which would have been utilizable by car. Reinhard, however, stopped the car 400 m to the hashpoint at a parking area. From there they walked on and found out that the hashpoint was 45 m from the path, amid more or less deep snow. After struggling there they took the usual photos (with all the hashcots coming out of warm backpacks) and walked/ran back. While Manu and Juja looked quite frozen, Reinhard thought it would be a good idea to take some photos of the clear night sky using long-term exposure and making the girls shiver even more. After some 20 to 30 seconds exposures Reinhard gave in and stopped the shooting, so they could travel on.
