Today's location is in a meadow at Muckensturm, a hamlet belonging to the municipality of Heddesheim.

Country: Germany; state: Baden-Württemberg (EU:DE:BW); administrative region: Karlsruhe; district: Rhein-Neckar-Kreis

Weather: clouded, a few tiny drops of rain



While I was staying at my parents' place, the hashpoint decided to fall into a hamlet belonging to the next town. So I took my brother's bike and set out. A few drops of rain were falling, but they didn't bother me. I cycled over the fields to Heddesheim. When I took a look at my GPS unit at the other side of that town, I saw "battery empty, powering down in 3... 2... 1...". With the GPS unit my plans for a tron geohash died, too, since I had no good possibility to prove it now. I continued to Muckensturm and found the hashpoint from the satellite image. It was in a large meadow, so even if I was a few metres off it wouldn't make any difference.

Since there was no point in continueing on my planned tron route any more, I just took the same route on my way back. In total I cycled 14.8 km.
