At the edge of a wood, only 900m away from Foehammers home



Having lots of free time at the moment, I plan on reaching the hash at around 1430. Since the closest road to the hash still is 400m away and there's probably 15cm of snow right now, it'll be quite some walk out there.


What a surprise! Another geohash closer than one kilometre from my home, even closer than 2012-05-04 47 8! Of course I had to make it to this one.

As my plans never turn out the way I intend them to, I was busy until 1450 and then go convinced to go for a walk with my mom and our dog. Shortly after we started, I remembered the hash - luckily, I never leave the house without my phone so Geohash Droid was with me and we were even walking in the right direction.

I intended to make this a Tron Achievement hash, but because of the unconcious start, I probably messed that one up, the trail is in the gallery.

Halfway to the hash, my mom decided to go back home, another solo hash for me.

The way to the hash was very nice for the first few hundred metres - autumn-colored leaves mixed with the snow and some very nice weather make a good combination. The last 200 metres were a little less comfortable - the road wasn't more than a trail, covered in 15cm of snow. Nonetheless, I continued my journey towards the hash and found it after nearly zero hashdancing at ca. 1530. Nice view, but nothing spectacular.

I trampled a huge hashmark in the snow (about 20m * 5m) and marked the spot as clear area. I also found time to build a little snowman =). Left the spot at 1550

On my way home I found some weird prints in the snow that looked like some bird fought on the ground. I also got an amazing view of the alps and the Titlis (which is 65km away) unfortunately, the pictures my phone took, don't show what was visible.

I took some shortcut through the woods to avoid an already used junction, but there was no reasonable alternative for the last junction - see the trail pic.
