The hash lies on the cemetery Waldfriedhof of Nauheim, county Groß-Gerau.




As today is Saturday, it would a good place for an official xkcd meetup. But I think, a cemetery is not a good place for such a meetup, so I propose beside the entrance to the cemetery. Look out for me!


Today I started to hitchhike from the autohof (truckstop) Lohfeldener Rüssel near Kassel. It was very hot. I waited there for more than two hours, then I got my lift. As we talked about my duty, the driver had been very interested in it. He had some time on his way, so he suggested to bring me to my destination. But then he tried to compute his built-in GPS-device, but I had the coordinates only with decimals, but his GPS accepted the coordinates only with minutes and seconds and we couldn't transform these. So he began to talk with his GPS: neues Ziel, Adresse, question welcher Ort, Nauheim, question welche Straße, Friedhof — and the GPS-device gave him the correct address and I got a direct lift to the Waldfriedhof in Nauheim within two hours, arriving there at 15:23.

Arriving there, the driver asked me for what I have to do there and I showed it to him. So we both went to the point of the hash, following my instrument. The hash lay on an empty place of the cemetery near the southern fence. After looking around for some minutes he went off. I took the photos and did it too. Then I walked back to the entrance and sat there down on the bench and waited for other people to show, but no other geohasher arrived.

At about 16:30 I left the place for travelling to Ulm to see 2013-07-28 48 9.
