At the edge of Gröbenzell, a suburb NW of München. A bit near Karlsfeld, location of an earlier hash.


I'll attempt it on morning, just before going to work, it's (almost, besides the 20 km detour ^^) on my way. ETA: 9:30 a.m.
Done :)

Not really sure about anyone else. If anyone else is planning to show up, The_T-Man will decide on a fixed schedule.

  • DerFlob also went, causing The_T-Man to decide on a fixed schedule.

  • Hey fellow geohashers! Have you read that : 2013-01-26 47 8 and the talkpage. I don't feel like letting them win the "Most active graticule for January 2013" that easily. That's why I'm considering attempting both of the next hashes (tomorrow Sunday and Monday). With lot of luck it could even be possible to finish on a par if the hashes until the end of the month are favorable. For tomorrow, we'll maybe try a Sunrise Geohash achievement. For Monday, I may try it on morning before going to work. — Zertrin 15:19, 26 January 2013 (EST)
    • Challenge accepted. I don't actually have a lot of opportunities to hash in my beloved home graticule right now, but I think we'll manage to keep up and get another one of those shiny ribbons. Thanks for the motivation. --Calamus 15:35, 26 January 2013 (EST)
      • Ha, I also had this sort of itching about challenging Zürich! However, there's a lot of stuff to do until Feb 4th for me. After that, - Bring. It. On. -The T-Man 17:26, 26 January 2013 (EST)
        • Oh, and yes: Making plans. Sunday's spot theoretically is in my corner of the town, but there's a family meeting coming up. Don't know how long that lasts. Monday, in return, looks nice. I'd start at about 14:40 at Central Station. -The T-Man 17:30, 26 January 2013 (EST)
          • The hash has been attended by Zertrin and vermouthandgin. I'm almost slightly impressed. Just don't fail your exams out of need for acceptance, Zertrin. We all do love you already. I'll need to improve my evil nemesis taunts – I'm not really used to not being friendly. --Calamus 12:55, 27 January 2013 (EST)
            • Wonderful expedition Zertrin, seems like you did a great job at annoying (one or more) Swiss. I just set up tomorrow's expedition page, but I'm not sure when to go there yet. -The T-Man 15:30, 27 January 2013 (EST)
              • As it turns out, my lab partner is busy today and I'd have time today. Are you still going for 14:40 at Central Station? -DerFlob 05:59, 28 January 2013 (EST)
                • 14:40 at Central station, sounds good; except if something else would be better for you. Hope I didn't confuse you with my earlier post. Let's meet at the little house where the security personnel sits at the S-Bahn platforms. -The T-Man 06:36, 28 January 2013 (EST)



Coordinates reached (by my hand at least). The exact spot lies in the garden of an house, about 1 meter from the little fence. I allowed myself to extend my hand over the little fence to let my GPS receiver reach the hash.

DerFlob and The T-Man[edit]

We both had plenty of spare time in the afternoon and agreed to meet at München east station at 14:09 o'clock, when the train towards Gröbenzell would depart. About 30 minutes later, we were at Gröbenzell station, 1.22 km (as the african swallow (without any coconuts) flies) from the hashpoint. We walked through the village until we reached the spot at the edge of a residential area. The point was located on a very steep slope that seperated the residential housing from a railroad track. We walked up and down until we both discovered Zertrin's footprints and had the GPS show the least distance. Our findings conclude with Zertrin's, the spot was probably one armlength into the adjacent garden as far as that can be said in respect to GPS (in)accuracy. We took a photo with our last-minute-created 100-hashes-anniversary-sheet that The_T-Man had made up (the camera was tied onto a branch on which we had found a bit of present wrapping band) and made our way back to the train station. 17 minutes of waiting and we were en route to München again.




The T-Man and DerFlob[edit]

The T-Man also found something for his Monopoly project.


Zertrin earned the Consecutive geohash achievement
by reaching 2 consecutive hash points starting on 2013-01-27.
