On the campus of the school "Schule Scheeßeler Kehre", in a one-storey bungalow/container containing classrooms.




I would definitely like to meet you there. Unfortunately, I caught the flu and won't go anywhere the next days. --Hermann 13:58, 9 February 2011 (EST)


I can hardly avoid the geohash: since I'll be taking my daughter to that school tomorrow and picking her up again at noon, I'll have to pass within at most ~100 m of the hashpoint. If I'm lucky, I can do it when I pick her up and take her with me, making it a drag-along achievement.

It's also nearly a déjà vu geohash achievement since I walked around the other of the two bungalows just this morning while waiting for school to finish ("nearly" because I didn't go around *that* building and, not least, because I have no proof).


Scouting expedition - Pne[edit]

This morning, after I dropped off my daughter at school, I had a look around that building to see whether I could find the hashpoint.

The last digit kept wavering, but at one point I managed to get it displayed to within 5 decimal places (the display accuracy on my device) - outside the building, fortunately!

I didn't take my camera along since I planned to taking a picture of my daughter at the hashpoint when I pick her up at noon.

I do have a tracklog for this expedition, which I'll upload in case I can't follow through with my plan for a "proper"(ly documented) visit.

Second expedition - Pne[edit]

After picking up my daughter, we went back to the same corner of the building and took some pictures.

My satnav wouldn't display exactly the right coordinates this time, but I didn't want to stick around too long and so I called it "good enough".

I'll upload the pictures later.
