- @Knallgöwer: Hey there, I plan to attempt it too, but a bit later today. Happy to see another new Geohasher in the graticule :) — Zertrin 09:32, 3 March 2013 (EST)
- Yeah! I'm there! Reached my first geohash, awesome! -- Knallgöwer (talk) @48.0161,11.1443 15:20, 3 March 2013 (CET)
On the first real spring day in Munich I convinced my wife to go to lake Ammersee and dragged her along to my first geohash expedition ever!
I was not sure to attempt this one, in any case only in the late afternoon. But when I saw that a new geohasher reached the hash around 3:30 p.m., it gave me the last bit of motivation I was lacking.
The day was perfect, blue sky with beautiful late winter sun, I guessed that, because the hash is close to the lake called Ammersee, I could have nice opportunities to make beautiful pictures.
I drove to the hash by car, parked on a nearby parking, and walked the 400 meters left through the forest. Approaching the hash I found the traces of the steps that Knallgöwer left in the snow, apparently coming from another direction.
I reached the hash easily, took some pictures and headed back to the parking following Knallgöwer steps. From there I went in the opposite direction of the hash, to reach the shore of the lake. Once there I took plenty of pictures of the setting sun over the lake.
Finally I went back to the car and drove uneventfully back home.
