[edit] Plans

I want to take the tram 3 from stop Arnimstraße at 14:29 to stop Stern, and change there to the bus 100 to Espenau-Schäferberg, arriving there at 15:05. And then walking 1.2 kilometers into the forest on forest ways and 60 meters into the wayless forest. I will be there at 4pm for a xkcd-meetup.

2014-02-08 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 5744.jpg 2014-02-08 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 5748.jpg I arrived as planned at 15:05 at Espenau-Schäferberg and immediately I started to walk to the hash. I crossed the national road.

2014-02-08 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 5767.jpg About 120 meters from the hash I found this fork, the left way was not shown on all my maps. Because the hash seemed to lie about 60 meters left of the right way, I took the left way.

And it began to rain. And there were some blasts.

2014-02-08 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 5786.jpg 2014-02-08 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 5790.jpg Then I started for home. At first I thought I could try the new found way, but with the rain the way became muddier. So I decided to walk across the forest to the other way and around the valley. In midth of the forest I found two new Hundekottüten, I took them with me, but it's not enough for a geotrash achievement. And I found the peak of the Staufenberg.
