Mittelstadt, near Reutlingen. A place near the main road, a small public green with a well feeding a small brook. The exact point was probaly on private property. But it was possible to approach less than 10m on public ground - in consideration of the measuring accuracy the hash-point was reached.


Ekorren was there in the afternoon.

Steingesicht went to Mittelstadt between 19:00 and 20:00 local time.



I raced down the Neckar valley cycle trail by bike, which is a really beaten trail for me. Circled the hash but didn't really think I reached it - whatever the accuracy of the GPS was, I would rather believe that the exact point was on the private lot above the wall. However, it was so close that even that might be disputable - still, the GPS dance never pointed in another direction and never came closer than 2m.


My plan was to combine the geohashing expedition with a hunt for a geocache. I went to Mittelstadt by car. I parked the car outside Mittelstadt and start my expedition by foot. I started with some multi-cache stages of the cache Geesfiaß - Gänsefüße and between two stages I visited the hash of this day. The hash was in a bushy corner of a small public green, surrounded by a well an a small brook. I left a geohashing marker at the site. After the visit I completed the geocache - and was really surprised: the final of the geocache was nearly in the same place like the geohash. According to my GPSr, the distance is 11m - this is less than the usual measuring accuracy of 15m! This was really amazing. So I could log a geocache and a geohash at the same place.





Steingesicht earned the Hash collision achievement
by discovering the geocache GC2W77J 11 m from the (48, 9) geohash on 2011-08-16.
