[edit] Location

"Surprisingly" for Thuringia, on a soggy field near Schillingstedt.

[edit] Plans

Mampfred told me about the coincidence of today's and tomorrow's geohash coordinates being only 8km apart on Friday. So he planned to do a double hash, the latter on midnight. Yakamoz and me tried the same in our current graticule.

[edit] Expedition

Being glad to have rubber floor mats in the car, we entered the car upon returning from 2011-08-27_51_11 and drove on to August, 28th's coordinates.

This time, there was a usable field path near the hash coordinates where I could park off the main road. We crossed the main road, almost fell into a gurgling ditch and walked onto the harvested field. Looking at the watch and having two hundred meters, we decided to run a bit. Since the trusty Maglite was rather low on battery, this was a rather blind thing to do, but nobody got hurt and we were in the hash point's close vicinity at midnight, even though I needed another one or two minutes to get a "0m to coordinates"-shot, at last- it kept on saying "4m" for quite a lot of four metres. Did another torch lit hash grin photo and headed back to the car and home, at last. Double hash midnight success! :-) We certainly enjoyed the adventure, especially jogging over the soggy field through the dark and me not being able to handle the new photonic weapon... :)

When we arrived at the car, we sent a SMS to Mampfred and got a call immediately- they also were successful, four-and-a-half hashers doing the double hash night in 50,8. Look out for their report. :) And I am very proud to report this at all, and before Mampfred, even... So, not a ninja-double.
