[edit] Plans

Driving to the Hash in the early afternoon, taking the Tram, it will be a good distance to walk but hey.

[edit] Expedition

I started at about 2:30 pm in Karlsruhe taking the next tram into the right direction. I realized to late that it was an express train so I landed in Bretten, there I waited for the next non-express tram to get to the station I've chosen. There I walked straight into the forest and thought about the temperature of my surroundings. Nothing seems to thaw, but on the other hand nothing seems to freeze. Damn I wanted a Thermometer. Surprisingly I saw a lot of footprints in the snow (at least surely 3 pairs) and I have to go out of the way for a car. First time I have a hash in the forest and see a living person at least half a mile near it.

There I tried to capture the beauty of the place but it didn't work quite well, but I made at least a few nice pictures.

Of course I wanted to use the snow, and despite it wasn't much there I managed to build two little snowmen. Or a snowman and a snowwoman because I didn't want either of them to be alone.

After I had needed a lot of time at the Hash I thought about the train and at which time the next one will arrive. I've avoided to look at the station so I could be at the Hash without hurry, but it was cold and through my equations I could make it in time if I run. So I hurried back to the tram station, on my way back I saw a puddle which I remembered from half an hour (more or less) before and I swear the Ice part on it was bigger then before, but again I couldn't proof it. The tram arrived exactly at the same time as I, but into the wrong directions, I had to wait for about 10 minutes.

One time I had to change trains at least for getting home, but I had to wait for half an hour for the connecting tram. Of course I'd an book with me so the waiting never gets boring, just cold.
