[edit] Location

Outside Ehringshausen in the forest, near a gravel path. Judging from the satellite imagery, quite accessible.

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

We're going to visit dad/granddad and the hash is conveniantly only 10km away from his place. Will take place in the afternoon though.

[edit] Expedition

[edit] Rincewind and Yakamoz

We didn't get a proper satellite fix somehow and so went to the hilltop first. When we realized it was just 1100m anyway, we took the parking lot for leisure walkers there and started our search. The weather was really beautiful, so walking seemed rather a treat than a duty, anyway.

When the forest way didn't go our direction, we went a bit cross-country downhill. We soon found another path that fitted our direction, passed a couple of fish ponds and walked up the hill through the woods. Nearing the coordinates, we crossed the forest again in order to shorten the path. We then did the hash dance and went back on a slightly better route, which didn't force us to any more offroad climbing (the landscape was more or less steep hills, see the nasty accuracy on the satellite fix).

On the way home we made a detour for Castle Braunfels, since we had noticed an indicator sign earlier. We found the castle to be rather huge for a location in the middle of nowhere, and in perfect repair. After gathering some impressions, we went into Braunfels' old city (very beautiful, as well) and had coffee and cake. All in all, one of the last sunny autumn days spent as well as could be. Yeah! And hash success, as a matter of fact. :)

[edit] Mampfred, LadyBB and EmmJay

We were late. Very late. So we parked as close to the hash as we could, Mampfred took EmmJay in the carrier and we walked up the hill (did I mention that most of the hashes in our area are up a frigging hill?) as fast as we could. We found the hash right next to the trail and had a bit of trouble getting the exact spot probably due to the thick forest. Went on to visit das/granddad and didn't even notice that the guys above had been there before us ;)
