Today's location is in a field with strange plants near Sinsheim.
Country: Germany; state: Baden-Württemberg (EU:DE:BW); administrative region: Karlsruhe; district: Rhein-Neckar-Kreis
The fastest route home from my parents is via the Autobahn A6, which passes Sinsheim. Since it is Saturday, I started at the correct time to be at the hashpoint at 4 p.m. After half an hour of driving I left the Autobahn at the Sinsheim south exit after accidentally taking a parking's exit 500 m earlier. Right at the exit the Rhein-Neckar Arena is situated, the football stadium of 1899 Hoffenheim. 1899 Hoffenheim is currently ranking 10th in the Bundesliga, the major German football league. This weekend's game for them is on Sunday, luckily, else there would have been lots and lots of traffic at the time I passed the stadium.
I passed the stadium, drove along a country road and finally along a smaller road until I was near the hashpoint. From there I just had to walk up a hill to reach the hashfield. I walked along its edge, because there was a non-planted field next to it, to cover most of the remaining distance. At 15:57, 30 m from the spot, my camera's battery died. I had left the spare one in the car, because the camera had shown 60% a few minutes earlier. At the hashpoint which I reached by carefully treading between the plants (I don't know what they were) I took pictures with my phone's camera. I couldn't see any other geohashers approaching for the 4 p.m. meetup, so I walked back to the car and continued to Würzburg.
