[edit] Plans

Koryu will drive by car around 1700 from Hamburg to Hagen and then try to reach the hashpoint from any parking lot by longboard/feet. He plans to stay there for a while and then drive to Kaltenkirchen.

[edit] Expedition

The hash went as planned except for some slight detours, since I didn't use a map.
I drove to Hagen, parked my car and went off under the surveillance of some horses to search for the right coordinates.
Since the field where the geohash was located had some young scions I decided to go around the field instead of going right through it. Therefor I had to cross a small part of a forest but arrived without problems on a strip of the field which was unplanted. There I saw a raised hide and climbed it to do some nice photos. Unfortunately the geohash was still some meters into the field, so I just made a photo of it from the unplanted strip and went back by circling the field on it's edge.
While going back I found a yellow postcard which was sent by air balloon during a festivity or something. It stated, that I should send it back to a certain address to be able to win a price together with the sender. Sadly the name and address of the sender are very hard to read, but I will try to decipher it and send it back.
That was my first reached geohash! Wohoo!
