In a forest between Kröppelshagen-Fahrendorf and Dassendorf.


Bierhefe, together with his wife


Bierhefe tries to reach this hash after work. Either by bike or by public transportation, depends on wether his wife joins him or not.


When I got home from work I asked my wife if she wanted to go to todays geohash and she said yes. Since public transportation is very limited in the suburbs of Hamburg and my wife's bike needs some serious repairing we decided to take the car to the hash. The hashpoint is very easy to reach by car, so we made an exception to our "rule" of not going by car to a hashpoint. Also, it was a good chance to finally get into the Sachsenwald (Saxony Forest).

After some packing we got going. After a very uneventful car ride (the only exciting thing was when we missed a turn and had to turn around) we reached the forest. Some 400 meters later we got close to the hash point.

On our way here we saw a sign which said "stay on the paths!". But since we only had to go a few meters into the forest we decided to go there. The connection of the GPS was surprisingly good and I think we got VERY close to the actual hash point. At first I thought to leave my paper marker here, but since the aformentioned sign also said "No littering!" we made our own XKCD sign out of some sticks.

After we got out of the forest, we went to a nearby geocache (but it wasn't close enough to claim the Hash collision achievement). Then we had a small picinc on some cut down trees. We originally planned to have the picnic at the hash point, but since it was located in the forest we decided the cut down trees were close enough to the point to claim the achievement. ;)


Tracklog available here or on everytrail. I started logging the track shortly after we missed the turn I mentioned in the expedition log.



Bierhefe and his wife earned the Land geohash achievement
by reaching the (53, 10) geohash on 2011-05-10.
Is it true that this user earned the Picnic achievement?
In principle, yes.
But he didn't bring any of the required accoutrements (2011-05-10 53 10).

Oh c***! We even brought a blanket with us, but didn't use it. :(
Ah well, lesson learned for the next time. ;)
