Frankfurt Höchst, about 3km from the station with the same name next to the Autobahn.



Mampfred has to work for one of his clients in Frankfurt today and could pass by the hash on his way back as his S-Bahn actually stops in Höchst. So he phoned QuarterCacher and asked if he was close by and low and behold he's working in Frankfurt too so they might meet up in Höchst around 5pm and go together.



Hmpf. Didn't quite turn out as planned. Took me about an hour in the morning to get to my clients office. Set up my laptop just to realize that my power adapter is broken so it was pointless staying at work as I couldn't do much without power. Very frustrating if you're payed by the hour ...

... anyway, more time for hashing. Headed for Höchst and had a nice ~ 7 km walk starting with sunshine and ending with a massive rain downpour just as I got back to the station. I reached the coordinates alright. Although I have to admit that I approached the hash from the wood side and I'm not entirely sure if the actual coordinates were on the other side of a little fence seperating the wood from the Autobahn. But considering GPS in-accuracy and Hash Droid placing me 1,8 meters from it and a number of past hashes where I got "coordinates not reached" due to crops in the way and/or my social conscience I'll consider this one as reached.

On the way back I actually passed to geocaches, GC31PTV and GC308NF, found the first one, didn't find the second.

I had a chat with QuarterCacher and he might attempt to get there later. Or not. (Update: he went but didn't bother document it as usual ;)
