On some fallow land next to Schifferstadt.




Visit the place on my way to the office.


Just made the 10 KM detour on my way to work this mornig. Although I arrived some minutes past eigth, the place was very crowdy. There's a big school next to the place where I left my car and obviously school hasn't started yet. Google maps shows some sort of a path (or at least a track) from the school leading immediatly to the hashpoint, but when I walked along the school everything I found was dense scrub of blackberries. So I tried another approach, walking back to the car and taking the next path in direction of the hash. But 150 m later, I just found the same blackberry scrub. Alas, a third approach: walking all the way to the main road, then walking along the main road and enter the field from the western side.

After another KM of walking I came up to 150 m to the point, and was really lucky: a small path leading just in the right direction. I followed it and just 10m before it disappeares in the well known scrub I reached my aim. It was just next to a sheep run and so I shared my success with some curious sheep. I took some photos and headed back to my car and continued my way to the office.

All in all, 10 KM detour by car and 2,3 KM of walking.


car 10 KM, foot 2,3 KM
