The geohash is next to the railway lines in Kissing, between Munich an Augsburg.

Who Went[edit]

TheOneRing - by public transport.

The Expedition[edit]

I took a train at 11am to Augsburg, and left it in Kissing. I'm not kidding, the name of the village is written correctly.

Inside the train I switched on my eTrex to get the closest approach at highest legal velocity. I didn't want to miss the point, so I made a movie. Unfortunately, the resolution and focus was not very good, so I don't have a feasible proof. Therefore I don't claim the Speed racer achievement.

From the train station it was about 1km to the geohash. Every now and then, trains passed by, slow trains, express trains and freight trains. One has to mention, that these tracks are the main connection between Munich and Augsburg, and further to Stuttgart.

The geohash itself was on the edge of a field next to a dirt road. There, I took some photographs, amongst others a panaramic view of 360°. As long it is summer and warm, I was playing with the idea of getting the Geoflashing achievement. The opportunity was great, I only had to let pass by a bicyclist and another train, and finally I got undressed.

I had some time to get the next train, so I walked a little bit through Kissing, trying to find an ice cream parlour. But in this case I was unsuccessful, so I went back and waited at the platform.

As the name of the village is so nice, I launch a Tale of Two Hashes challenge.
