[edit] Location

On a field directly near the forest, with a quite nice view.

Far enough from big streets not to hear them.

[edit] Plans

I was looking for an nice place to have a picnic with a girl. But I've had no real idea where to go, so I have looked up the actual Hashpoint and it was not this far away, and near to an easy accessible street.

So I asked here and she found it a funny idea. Luckily I could rent me an GPS. Planned was: to have a picnic, use the Slackline I would take with me and play Cards.

[edit] Expedition

I've picked her up with my Car and just wanted ride straight to the Hashpoint over the street I have seen on Google. But it turns out that Google haven't known about the roadworks. But because I thought I know the area I've driven another way and ended not on top of the hill but in the valley about half an mile crow to the hashpoint.

So we walked through the forest and need about 20 minutes to find it, what I find not this long.

At the Hashpoint their was an surprise. On a tree stump almost exactly at the Hashpoint was something red, it looked like a piece of clay, washed down over time. I've never seen something like this before ever and don't see any sense in it. If Geohashing where more popular and it didn't look so washed down I have thought it is an marker. It was none but I made one out of it and written in with a stick "Geohash 2012 9 6 DJ" (I don't know how long it will last)

After this we spread our blanket but no one of us was really hungry already. So we just drunk something and then we tighten up the Slackline and made what you normally make with a Slackline: (try to) walk back and forth.

After 3 hours of we walked back to my Car, we neither played cards or really made a picnic except a Donut for both of us, but I've learned to never push a girl to eat, so we don't eat and I carried all the stuff for nothing but my good will.

All in all it was a really nice expedition, with good weather, a nice Hashpoint and really nice accompaniment :D The only thing what annoys me is that of all my old digital camera stopped to work, so I have no more proof for my Expedition then the things you could see on my GPS device, sorry about that.

[edit] Tracklog

Because my GPS Device is only rented i have no way to connect it to the PC, I'll try to show it to you in the Pictures but it isn't really awesome.

I tried do show our way from the car to the hash: http://goo.gl/maps/ZHIC4 "A" is where we left the car an "B" is where we go off the street, the way back we made almost like this. "C" is near the Geohash.

[edit] Photos

I took them at home because the camera I have tried to use at the Hashpoint doesn't work
