Innsbruck, near Hungerburg-Bahn valley station, conveniently located next to a hiking trail.
Only 2.8 kilometers away from home as the crow flies, this is almost a couch potato geohash. Perfect occasion to aim for the walk geohash, the circus geohash, maybe the picnic achievement and who knows what else achievements. As this is our first official Saturday meetup we will try to be there at 4 pm. We hope we will actually meet someone!
We decided to go for the Tron achievement so we choose a route that first took us up to the Planötzenhof and past the little church "Höttinger Bild" from which we headed towards Gramartboden. From there it was only a short walk to the hashpoint near Hungerburg. We reached the coordinates at about 16:15. The spot was just a few meters away from the Nordpark singletrail and the cable car between Hungerburg and Seegrube. Mountainbikers whizzed past us while we were looking for the exact spot. We marked the place and used the juggling balls we brought to get the circus achievement. Waltraud watched stunned. In order to return to our home without crossing our previous path we headed from Hungerburg down towards the Alpenzoo and then back to Hötting.
All in all this was a really pleasant expedition, the weather was gorgeous an we could reach the hash point without any obstacles like fences or brambles.
Our track, somewhat evidence for the tron achievement.
Dear tron achievement evaluation committee: the apparent loops in this gps track are all due to insufficient gps accuracy in the forest, or the coordinates jumping around wildly while we were standing. Please don't take away our achievement because of this!
Circus achievement (video)! I hope the squirrels were impressed.
