Today's location is in a field between Würzburg and Höchberg.
Country: Germany; state: Bayern (Bavaria, EU:DE:BY); administrative region: Unterfranken; district: Würzburg rural district
Walk to the hashpoint. Continue to Höchberg to watch the carnival parade (and make pictures for the worldwide geohashers). Return home on a tron route.
Because the hashpoint is very close to my home, I decided to walk. I started at 1 pm, walked along the ring park and crossed the Main at the lions' bridge. Then I took a road that went straight towards the hashpoint, going slowly up the hill. The weather was fine, so it was a nice walk. At 13:50 I was near the hashpoint. There were many people going for a walk in the fields and the curious dog ("Sammy") of a young couple greeted me, earning itself a hashdog patting.
The last part of the track was unpaved and a little slippery, so my shoes had a little mud on them. The last steps to the hashpoint would be along the edge between two fields and it would be very muddy, so I stepped into two plastic bags and knotted them around my ankles. Walking with that was difficult, because the wet mud was very slippery and stuck to the bags. This not only made my feet heavier, I was also in danger of losing my shoes. After 15 metres the left bag succumbed to the strain and ripped open. Oops, this is going to be dirty. I shortly considered turning around, but then decided that it was too late. I continued and reached the hashpoint. I didn't stay long before going the same way back out of the field. On that way back the second bag ripped, too, and I reached the track with boths shoes covered by thick mud. Good thing I used my oldest geohashing shoes. I had given up on the tron achievement and the carnival parade, so I took the same way home, throwing the ripped bags in the nearest trash can on the way.
In total, I walked 9.7 km.
