Desperatly needed Hashpoint near my Location, in reach of my tramticket! Yay!


Surely RecentlyChanged probably Deuded (he knows nothing of his luck)


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


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.
