For us Germans: Somewhere in Swiss ;) Looks like ..... wait for it........ a field!
After the Lonely Hash from deuded and the meeting in the forest. Deuded and RecentlyChanged will drive on to Luzern and try to find the third/second Geohash these day. After that we will stay in Luzern for the Night.
Is there anyone else up?
Next station: a few kilometer west!
To see the beginning of the story, see here first part and here second part.
It was pretty easy finding our way to the hash that was situated close to Lucerne, a beautiful city in Switzerland.
After having found a carpark close to the hash, we went to the hash location to have a look if we were able to reach it. The hash was in the middle of a enclosed meadow, so we didn't want to got there without permission and were looking for someone who possibly could help us. Nearby, there were garden plots ("Schrebergärten") where deuded asked a family, that was enjoying the sunlight in their garden, if they knew who the owner of the meadow was. The man showed deuded a farmhouse that was pretty far away. No Chance, we would have to got there and ask for permission.
On the way to the farmhouse, we saw some people (in our age, between 20 and 30 years old) besides a huge tent in which a party was going to take place soon. We didn't hesitate and asked them what to do to reach the hash. Unfortunately, we forgot to print out the explanation sheets for what we were doing, so we had to explain it what was pretty hard!
Nevertheless, we got best news from the people: "No worries, just go there, we know the farmer, no problem. Just watch out for old landmines or the owner who might sit there with a shotgun to shoot you (just a joke in Europe, reality in the US :D ).
Finally, we could go to the hash and were very happy about the 3rd (deuded) / 2nd (RecentlyChanged) hash in two days. Triple and Double! :)
As always, we recognized how senseless it is to drive to Switzerland just to go to a boring place on a field. Best conditions for doing another two hashes the following day :D
Actually, we wanted to got the party where the helpful people were, but we didn't have SFr (the currency in Switzerland) to pay the entrance fee. Since we had no toher plans, we had a small lunch (that contained of pretzel sticks, 2 bananas and nuts) because we forgot to pack lunch :D You see, reaching the hash is all we were thinking about :) After that, we were searching for a geocash (just one letter changed, but big difference!) for almost an hour but we didn't find it.
It was getting late, so we decided to look for safe place for our car this night (we wanted to sleep in it) close to the following hash (which was just a 30 min drive away!).
