The hash lies in Ulm, Germany, in the Zinglerstraße, just a few meters south of the crossing with Neue Straße and Friedrich-Ebert-Straße.




Because the hash lies in the middle of a lane to the traffic lights, I think the best place to be there is the sidewalk to the right, about eight meters away. Afterwards I want to travel to Potsdam, for 2013-07-28 52 12.


I wanted to hitchhike to Ulm from the 2013-07-27 49 8 meetup the evening before, then to visit the hash and to continue to hitchhike to Potsdam for the 2013-07-28 52 12. But I arrived here very late.

The reasons for this had been the very heat on Saturday in Germany and some wrong planning. The distance from Nauheim to Ulm is 300 km, usually this distance is makeable to hitchhike within seven hours, starting at Nauheim at about 17:00, I should have reached Ulm at about midnight.

But I didn't. At first I tried to walk to the motorway, but it was too hot, so I have made a break in some shadow for an hour. Then I have taken the bus to Groß-Gerau, where I have bought a lot to drink. Then I went to the motorway, until now I had lost about two hours. From the junction I have taken a lift to the service station Büttelborn, where I waited for another two hours for a lift to the south, but no car for this direction appeared. After this I haven taken a lift to Darmstadt, where I have taken a tram to Alsbach and went to the service station Alsbach, where I arrived at about midnight. I have spent the night there and I gave a good nightmeal to the mosquitoes.

The next morning I left the service station at about 10:20, got a lift to the service station Sindelfinger Wald with a surprisingly detour to Karlsruhe. At Sindelfinger Wald I got after two hours of waiting a car to Neu-Ulm with an Italian couple, already discovering the possibilities of their new car. From Neu-Ulm I had to walk to Ulm, which needed two hours.

I visited the point of hash, then I thought about the next hashes I had planned to visit.

2013-07-28 52 12 on the same day, but in Potsdam, had been too far away that I could reach it.

Then a new thunderstorm arrived at Ulm and I decided to rest at Ulm, but I couldn't find a cheap hostel. So I decided to travel to München and to look there for a place to stay.
