Plans[edit]

To take the train to Germersheim at 9:32 and continue my travel from there by bike. After I've visited the hashpoint I'll ride on to Rastatt and take the train home from there.

Expedition[edit]

So, after the short expedition yesterday, todays trip was epic again. The way, my legs felt after the 70 KM trip yesterday, it was clear, that I wouldn't make a 100 + KM on my bike today. So first of all, I decided to ride my bull, and second, I expanded the train-part to Wörth.

Soon I reached the french border but didn't cross it immediately but stayed on the German side till Scheibenhardt(D)/Scheibenhard(F).Now followed a lot of little french villages, all even prettier but also more dozily than the palatine villages. I came along a former jewish cemetery where I had a little rest and took some photos. After a while I reached a former rail track, where I could ride really fast, but soon after that I reached the busy D263. First I tried to avoid the road by taking a path through the forest, but it ended after a while and so I had to take the road anyway. But only some minutes later I came near the hashpoint and had to try to get there. As the forest seemed very dense and there was a ditch between the road and the forest, it was clear that I couldn't take my bull with me. So I returned some 100 meters and put the bull in a forest path to walk on by foot. I found a way to enter the bushes, but after the first row the forest became quite light and easy passable.

To find the hashpoint, I had to do some dancing, as accuracy was bad in the forest. Anyway, I did it somehow. I had some food with me, fruits again, but also some french pastry and some water, and I even foud a place to arrange it and to sit down. I think, this time, it is good enough for a picnic. Before I left again, I left a marker, if in a far future geohashing will come famous in france.

Then I walked back to my bike and returned along the road and back to the rail track. This time I could stay even longer on it. I found a bunker of the ligne maginot but stayed only a short time to take some photos. It doesn't take long and I reached a bridge over the river rhine on which I returned to germany and continued to Rastatt. I knew that there was a train at 14:34 from Rastatt and so I hurried to the station, oon which I arrived at 14:37, but the train was still there. Nevertheless, I still had to buy a ticket, and just when I finished that the train started. But that was good luck for me, because so I had the occasion to ride to the city of Rastatt. At the castle there was a festival for the 300. anniversary of the Treaty of Rastatt, where I listened to some music and ate some Ochsenmaulsalat (ox-muzzle salad) and drank some beer.

Back to the station I was told, that the train from Graben-Neudorf wouldn't stop in Speyer today due to a building site. So I left the train in Graben-Neudorf and went to Germersheim by bike once again.
