[edit] Location

Not on a field! Beside a small rural road in Greussen/Clingen next to a small river (or ditch?)

[edit] Plans

Make it a double-midnight hash- until I got to executing the "hash number two" part of the plan, the midnight part was history, already.

[edit] Expedition

The biggest problem in reaching the hash coordinates was that my clothing and me were so wet that the windscreen was instantly fogging up so badly that I had to use the AC to get the humidity in the car back to normal. :) This was caused by 51, 11 in a vain attempt for a double midnight hash.

Apart from that, I let myself be guided by the car navigation and then drove on by the outdoor gps' compass.

This time, that approach worked considerably better- I found a road which led directly to the hash point. I thought it might give a drive-through experience, but not quite. When I got out of the car, I had to walk a full four meters to the spot, the only challenge was not to slip on the (wet) grassy side of the ditch. That would have really made my night complete...

Satisfied, I took the usual shots and headed home, fueled up the car in Erfurt and then went to bed after concluding it to be a bit to late for the documentations if one was to turn up at work at all the next morning. The clock showed something like 1:30 already, but we all have to bring sacrifices, eh?

This was, and that made all the driving worthwhile of course, the fourth in a series of consecutive hashes. :D A new personal record for me, still the next day was a bit far, so that series had to end with this hash. Check the others, if you are interested: Sept. 23rd with Mampfred , Sept. 24th with Mampfred.
