Location[edit]

In the forest of Neu-Isenburg, just next to the forest road.

Plans[edit]

The coordinates were reasonably close to my way home and next to a road in the forest, so I considered this one to be easily accessible after Yakomoz told me about it.

Expedition[edit]

Since I know the street where the forest road ends, I drove there and went looking for a parking spot. Bummer. Neu Isenburgs businesses seem to thrive. Back on the main road there was a spot some 50m on. So I just had to walk some 400 meters- not a problem, but the weather was really unpleasant. It was constantly raining and, while not at all cold, damp and felt chilly due to the wetness. When nearing the coordinates, I met a solitary stroller in the rain after my first attempt into the forest. The second attempt to break through the wet underbrush was more successful. While for a split second I had "0m" for three or four times, I had some trouble getting a screenshot fast enough. Since I was climbing over and under thorns, fallen trees and branches, etc. the umbrella was useless and when I was back at the car, I was a bit scratched, wet from the upside and pretty soaked from the underside (meaning feet and ankles!).

Well. The things you do for a successful hash.

Well, Land. Possibly "Drowned rat", but not quite.
