In a small forest next to the Berliner Ring where A10 and A115 meet.
Start at 1pm in Potsdam, go by bike and be back before 3pm.
I was checking the hashes near Potsdam for ca. two weeks to find one, which would be good for my first geohash expedition. Today was the day. The hash was about 10km from where I live and located in a small forest which seemed accessible. I asked Rialgar to accompany me and so we decided to go on our first geohashing expedition together.
We didn't have much trouble getting there thanks to google navigation and discovered some interesting places in Potsdams outskirts. Who knew there were so many stables around?
The hashpoint itself was right on the path through the forest, but because orientation is hard we wandered around without direction until we realised that what we thought was north was actually south. Having found the hash we quickly made some photos as proof before we would be completely eaten by the mosquitos.
With a great view at the Berliner Ring we took a break. Rialgar brought some cookies and water. We then left a biodegradable message on the hashpoint and headed back home.
First hash: success.
