Plans[edit]

I want to hitchhike to the pass of the mountain road from Nieste to Kleinalmerode and then I want to walk to the hash.

2014-05-24 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 5986.jpg This is a view to the hash. I passed this place on my walk to 2014-02-20 51 9, the today's hash lies about 400 meters straight ahead. But there is another forest way up there, which will lead me better to the hash.

I will leave home at 11:30 to be there for a xkcd meetup.

Expedition[edit]

2014-05-24 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 0925.jpg I left home at 11:30, and with the tram 3 and the buses 32 and 31 I went to the Witzenhäuser Straße in Heiligenrode. From there I started to hitchhike and with three cars I arrived at the pass. There I went into the forest. The main way had a surface of gravel. After 1.5 kilometers I arrived at this muddy way.
2014-05-24 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 0934.jpg But I didn't take it. At first I wanted to see, if the lower way would lead me to the hash. But it didn't. The nearest place I could go to, was 85 meters away and the hash was steep up the mountain.
2014-05-24 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 0943.jpg Instead to climb up the hill, I walked back to the former junction and started there to walk again to the hash. The way was muddy.
2014-05-24 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 0960.jpg 2014-05-24 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 0945.jpg While I was walking through the forest it started to rain, it rained heavy and a thunderstorm came up. I found a hunter's seat and used it as a shelter. And the forest way became more muddy.
2014-05-24 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 0948.jpg 2014-05-24 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 0958.jpg I sat for about half an hour in that shelter. It rained heavy and it rained and rained. Then the sun came out, but it didn't stop raining. But at the end the rain stopped, but the thunder went on. In such a situation in the forest it is not easy to see, if the rain ended or not.
2014-05-24 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 0962.jpg But I started then. The way was more muddy then before.
2014-05-24 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 0964.jpg Ten minutes later I found the place of the hash. But is was very deep below the way. Looking for an other way to the hash had no success, The nearest other way led away from the hash and the path to the hash would be as steep as before.

But only seconds later the display showed 20 meters again.

2014-05-24 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 1018.jpg 2014-05-24 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 1030.jpg I waited at the place above the hash, if other geohashers appeared, but no one did. Then I wanted to go back to the main road. I wanted to take another way, but I didn't find it. Then I used the way which I used before. There I found a view to the valley, from where I could have a view to the 2014-05-21 51 9 hash. On the way home I had a view to the Kaufunger Forest, where the actual hash was in.
