[edit] Location

Graticule Mannheim (49, 8):

The hashpoint is located on a field south of Gernsheim and west of Klein Rohrheim near the little river Lauter/Winkelbach. In the south of the field a little road leads from Klein Rohrheim to a home for animals.

[edit] Expedition

The weather was cloudy but dry and I needed recreation and recovery, so the hashpoint was a good reason to go outdoors.

The field was easy to be found, but fresh sowed barley or rye grew there as little plants. Since I don't like to tramp onto my future beer or bread (or worse to perform the 'GPS dance' on it), I had to keep on traktor tracks crossing the field. And I also do not need to encounter a blustering German farmer.^^ One muggel who asked me, what I was seeking here was enough for this afternoon.

I tried three traktor tracks until I found out which would lead next to the hashpoint. So the GPS device at least displayed about 9.3 m to the point with an accuracy of 4 m. Good that I had rubber boots in the car and best to wear them here!

About 0.9 km from the hashpoint, but in direct sight (in the west, at the edge of the wood) was the GC36MH4 geocache which we could not log in april, because a hunter with gun sat next to it on a little raised hide. But now it was to be found without the hunter.

After this I had some time near the harbour of Gernsheim, watchng a container ship to be loaded, the ferry sailing across the river and the calm streaming of the Rhine River during sunset.

(I am not used to write English texts. So you may correct it if you find mistakes.)
