Metzingen, a crossroad


It will be hard not to go there for Steingesicht

After everything went different than expected during the afternoon, it was surprisingly possible for Ekorren to go there as well.



I was there at 15:20 CET - but the hashpoint wasn't there

Steingesicht earned the Blinded by Science Consolation Prize
by failing to reach the (48, 9) geohash on 2011-11-25 Steingesicht tried to reach the hashpoint by using aerial images - but he took the wrong turn..

I checked the way at openstreetmap and took a look at google maps aerial view. This showed me the hashpoint directly on the lane and I decided not to try the hash-point-dance for some obvious reasons. My plan was to make this a Speed racer achievement hash - so I prepared my GPS device and my camera to made a proof-video from my GPS while I drove the car.

The aerial view in mind I started the journey, reached the hashpoint (the wrong one) and parked my car at the next parking lot, took some pics from the hashpoint (the wrong one) and then went back home without checking my GPS again.

This could have been also a Déjà Vu Geohash - I reached the coordinates of the correct hashpoint just some weeks before (see attached picture with the old track and the hashpoint).


I was there at 18:30, in the dark.

Entirely unexpected, I went to Reutlingen in the afternoon. Since it takes only a little bit of extra cost and not much time either to go from there to Metzingen and back, and the hash was very close to the station, I decided to upgrade the ticket to one to Metzingen. Had my bike with me, but that didn't make much of a difference anyway.

It was definitely a deja vu geohash, since the bus from Metzingen to Neuffen uses this road, even the correct lane. I have been using that bus a few times. The tenth deja vu geohash I accepted myself, even.
