The hash lies in a small forest south of the interchange between the motorways A7 and A352 in the communal area of Wedemark, Germany.




I will go there by hitchhiking, walking to the hash, then travel back to Kassel, maybe a stop in Hannover.


I have left home at 11:00, waited at my spot for about an hour, waited again at the service stations Göttingen and Harz and at last I got a lift to the junction of Mellendorf, where I arrived at 17:00. Which is one and a half hours more than I had planned for this journey. From there I have walked to the hash, through forests and along fields, walked along a street over the motorway. Then I made a turn to the right (the street does a turn to the left there) and found me near the hash, but I couldn't find the forest streets, which Google's maps show. So I stumbled through the pathless forest to the hash — and I have found it. But where had been the way out? Of course, I have a GPS-receiver so it is no problem at all. I have found the way out of the forest, made my way on another forest roads and ended at last at the truckstop of Gailhof. I arrived there at 19:40. I needed about an hour to get a car onto the motorway, with this car I got a lift to the service station Allertal, which is north of Gailhof and from there a Jaguar to the service station Göttingen and from there a third car to a motorway parking place above Kassel. I arrived there at 23:20. But I couldn't get the bus from the nearby bus stop, because the bus had been one minute too early! So I went home from there, but for 2 1/2 kilometers I could get another bus, but then I had to walk again and arrived at home at 0:40. So I needed for my way home five hours, but I had a longer journey because of the detour to Allertal.
