Doncaster, next to a shopping outlet.



Mampfred, usually working in germany, is currently in the UK for a couple of days to do some work for his client's client.

In an amazing stroke of luck he just had a quick glance in Hashdroid and to his surprise found that today's hash is no more than 400 meters from where he's sitting.

Since that's virtually impossible he's closed Hashdroid in complete disbelieve and will probably risk another look at the end of the business day ...


Unfortunately I had to stay in the office quite late and got near the hash shortly before 9pm. A car park right next to it made things easier as there were a McDonalds as well as a PizzaHut right next to it.

To get to the hash, I had to squeeze through a little wooden barrier to get behind the trees of the carpark. At first it looked like the hash would be spot on in the drainage ditch which I wouldn't have made in the clothes I was wearing. But GPS uncertainty came to the rescue and both my phone ("it's as close as you can get!" - I didn't even know that message existed in hashdroid) and the GPS placed me right at the hash or next to it.

Unfortunately I didn't know how to take a screenshot on android 4.1.2 (I know now, you just have to hold the two buttons longer than on older android versions ... grrrr) and had just reset my GPS and not yet reconfigured all the views(Garmin GPS 62s, it's STILL not showing geocaches, apparently I'm not the only user of that thing with that problem) so the screenshots aren't great and you have to take my word for it this time.


not this time, no
