[edit] Expedition

While quite some driving from Erfurt, this was a welcome excuse to connect geohashing with a wellness trip into Avenida Therme (a fairly nice indoor pool/spa/sauna center) in Hohenfelden, so I thought I'd try it. I let the car GPS guide me into the village with occasional glaces at the outdoor device and then just followed the compass on the latter. Fortunately, the field roads were used, so I could just follow tracks- I might simply not have found them in the snow, otherwise. This was almost too easy, as I could drive within 160m of the hash and then just had to walk uphill on the even field. There were some big trees in the middle of the field like a small botanic insula and the hash coordinates were next to them. Didn't even need a hash dance to get a "0m"-Screenshot. It was rather cold (new record for me while geo hashing), so I went back rather quickly and went somewhere much, much more warm.

Photos will follow after a good night's sleep.
