Location[edit]

Near the small village Dietrichsroda; at the edge of some woods next to a field.

Plans[edit]

The plan was to take the train to Großheringen and take my bike for the rest. The bycicle routing on Google maps showed a nice 14 km route that avoided federal roads.

Expedition[edit]

After an uneventful train ride, I started off through the vineyards of Bad Sulza, which had more steep inclines than I had expected. Then I rode through several small villages, including Burgheßler and Klosterhäseler. Shortly before I reached the hashpoint, I had to climb another serpentine road with some rather steep parts.

When I approached the hashpoint at the top of the hill, I thought at first that I wouldn't reach the point, because the only way to get there was through a plowed field, which was way too muddy. But then I discovered that I could walk at the edge between field and woods, where the mud wasn't quite so bad. I followed that edge for 200 meters or so. The actual hashpoint was maybe 25 meters into the woods. I had planned to leave a charcoal mark, but discovered that I had forgotten my charcoal pencil, so I just took some photographs and left.

On the way back I managed to reach the Großheringen train station two minutes before the next train left. This was very lucky, because the train only goes every two hours.

Achievements[edit]

Since this was my first geohash, I think this also earned me the land geohash achievement
