Participants[edit]

Plans[edit]

Taking the train from Hannover to Banteln, then biking to the hash, using my phone to get the exact coordinates. Meeting others, if they are there. Estimated arrival time: 16:00 CET.

Expedition[edit]

Everything went as planned, more or less. I rode my bike to Hannover's central train station, then got on the train, and left it at Banteln. Then, I rode my bike to and through Gronau, and then headed toward Brüggen. I never got there, because I took a left on a semi-path that led me into the middle of nowhere. (I also didn't go to Rheden, actually, which was the location Google Maps assigned the coordinats to.) After a couple of kilometers, I finally got close to the geohash.

I had to leave my bike on the path and walk the rest of the distance, but there, approximately 50 meters away from the path, on a field made up of mud and grass, at 16:06 CET, I reached the coordinates. I saw a plane fly above the coordinates, but I doubt they were fellow geohashers. Otherwise, I didn't see any other people. On my way back, I saw a couple of deer, but they ran away before I could get anywhere close to them. There were no cats, though.
