[edit] Location

Outside Hoch-Weisel in a drainage ditch between a field and a field road, quite easily accessible.

[edit] Plans

Drive to the end of the village, walk a couple of hundred meters.

[edit] Expedition

Of course, there was various roadworks in progress so noone not from the village could find a way (not me, at least), so we went there over some apple orchards (and cherry, and pear...) and past some cows from a point a bit more to the southend of the village. Apart from the hash dance, nothing interesting, but a very nice landscape on a sunny day. Shame I forgot to install the hash poster somewhere, it would probably have been noted, there were plenty other walkers enjoying the weather.

2km further there was the Hausbergturm (~Homemountain tower) which we then hiked to through the woods. It was erected for Hessentag in Butzbach some years ago (sort of a federal fair wandering between towns from year to year) and provides the conqueror of stairs with a nice view over Butzbach and the surrounding territory. All in all, a nice time in the coutryside. :-)
