Plans[edit]

I want to go there by hitchhiking, look for the hash, take some photos, walk around in the forest, hitchhike home.

Expedition[edit]

2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2897.jpg I started at home at 10:15. I took the trams 7 and 8 to the beginning of the national road B7. The third car stopped. I got a lift to Helsa, then I walked to the end of Helsa at the national road B451. There the first car stopped and with this I reached Großalmerode, which is the village, where my walk began. This place is about 380 meters high.

This was not my way, but I was confused. It said "Today Hunting - No Trespassing - Danger of Life". Here I walked to the right, following my trail.
2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2932.jpg 2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2942.jpg Then I found two of such barriers, the right one is the path, where I wanted to go, the left one is the path, which I have later taken. Also the last possible way was blocked (Kohlenstraße).
2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2946.jpg Then I saw, that a car passed such a barrier. (The green one between the trees on the left.) I walked to the place, where the car passed and I found two men, who opened the barrier. I asked them, if the way is now open. They answered me, that the opening vould take place at 13:00. So I waited for some minutes, then I started to walk into the forest. (The white car is a cooler van, to transport away the dead animals.)
2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2959.jpg Then I walked some zigzag through the forest and found back the right way to the hash. I followed this way for ten minutes, but then I found this situation. The hash is about 50 meters away, but the way is not passable. I tried it.
2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2969.jpg 2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2970.jpg At first I tried to cross the meadows. It looked harmless, but on the first meters I found a very wet ground. Not knowing if it was only wet grass or something like a moor, I tried to find a way around. While doing this, I found this little brook.

2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2974.jpg The way above the meadows, which I took to cross the creeks.
2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2983.jpg Then I found something like a path beside the meadow. The stone wall shows, that all these areas are man made.
2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2984.jpg A view across the meadow, I walked along the other side upwards.
2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2985.jpg About 20 meters away from the hash, but a small creek blocked my path. I walked around it. At least it looked like a spring.

2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2999.jpg 2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 3001.jpg I found traces of the hunting.

2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 3013.jpg After visiting the hash, I walked to the Bilstein tower, the highest peak of the Kaufunger Wald.
2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 3024.jpg From the tower I saw the horses of the hunting.

View to Kassel. Bad photo. The Hoher Meißner. View to the Rhön mountains. They are 90 kilometers away, today bad view.

2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 3046.jpg I had been asked, why I can find so much shelters in the forests. Today I found this.
2013-11-12 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 3059.jpg By trying to hitchhike home from Großalmerode to Kassel the third car stopped and I got a lift directly to Kassel. On my way home I had been hindered by this accident. So I arrived 30 minutes later.
