[edit] Location

Three days after creating my account at XKCD I have the chance to visit my first geohash near Fehlheim.
The location is easy to reach (near Fehlheim in the graticule Mannheim (49, 8)), but sturdy shoes are advisable as it goes over a harrowed field.

The car can be parked next to the soccer field. Here begins some event today, and it is expected that sports court and side roads will be very busy later in the day.

Optical target: The big poplar by the brook.

On the way to the little stream, it is found incidentally that the area goes down here about 1 m to 1.5 m: Here is the old Neckar bed. There is also a geocache (Earthcache GC4FEZY) on this subject. Guess whose EC it is.  ;-)

[edit] Expedition

Today I was here alone at about 14:45 h in beautiful weather. Member at http://wiki.xkcd.com the third day and already a location near us that could be done within 20 minutes. :-)

Since I'm new at http://wiki.xkcd.com, my contribution may be improved by insiders.

[edit] Photos

Here some Photos of this trip after I found out how to upload them. (very difficult here)
