[edit] Location

Near Bötzingen, 10 km to the northwest of Freiburg. The hash appears to be on a field, some 20 m from the nearest road.

Hijackal

[edit] Plans

Hijackal happens to be in Freiburg, with his bike (badly needing repair). Depending on how much work there is today, he hopes to get there in the evening.

[edit] Expedition

There was no work left for the day with still plenty of daylight to go, so Hijackal cycled to the hash. The first half of the trip was easy riding along the Dreisam. Then, Hijackal learned that just because something is a field does not mean it has to be flat. Of course, he could have known: there's lots of wine from around here, and vineyards can be pretty steep.

The hash itself was in an actual vineyard, not really accessible from the road, but not fenced in either. Hijackal asked the lady just leaving the vineyard for permission to enter the vines; she didn't really seem to care about what I wanted to do there - she just commented that I should have come earlier to help her, as she was just leaving from a day's work in the vineyard. If noone had been there, Hijackal would have probably entered the vineyard anyways, so no Ambassador achievement for now...

On the way back, Hijackal took a slightly different path, going for the Tron, but forgot that he had taken a wrong turn on the way to the hash, so he hit his imaginary Tron wall at 30 km/h, luckily without any real damage...
