The plan was to make it a Sunrise geohash. At the beginning, I considered combining it with the camping achievement, but then dismissed the idea because of timing constraints (I had to work afterwards) and also somehow because the weather forecast didn't make the idea very appealing.
Various online sources and my GPS told me sunrise would be around 05:55 (with dawn starting at 05:16), so I planned to leave home between 04:45 and 05:00 (I planned about 40 minutes driving + 10 minutes walking) which I more or less managed to do.
The closest parking spot to the hash was reached around 05:40, and from there it was just a matter of minutes to walk to the spot. The GPS showed me "0 m left" which I guess is about as good as it gets.
In order to get a proper picnic achievement this time, I took my breakfast with me, including a picnic blanket, hot coffee, orange juice, fruits, bread and jam, and even colorful plastic cutlery. However the weather didn't motivate me to spend more time at the hash than was necessary, so I only drank my coffee and ate the rest of the breakfast later on the train.
I left the hash area shortly thereafter and made it to the 06:50 train in order to start my regular day.

I visited the area a number of times, including documented examples. I don't have a gps tracklog or a picture sowing me at the hash, although I'm pretty sure I walked to within 20m from it a few times.
