Location[edit]

In the forest (or a fern-filed) south of Niederroedern.

Participants[edit]

DODO

Plans[edit]

I have some time today and the nearest geohash is in the french part of the southern graticule. That might bring some shiny ribbons.

Expedition[edit]

I saddled the bull in the morning and headed southwards. After 50 KM I reached the french border. After this the landscape got a little bit more wavy and much nicer (but maybe thats just because it's foreign). Half an hour later I reached Niederroeden and took some pictures. And a kilometer further I reached a roundabout where I tethered the bull and had just 135 m to go to the hash.

It looks like dense copse, but after a short fight with some raptors I reached a big area covered with dry fern. It would have been hardly possible to cross the area in summer when the fern is high and dense and its probably very hard to walk through when it is wet, but neither of both took place and so I could walk very good on the dry fern. 50 m further I reached the hash. I took some pictures, left a mark, ate some doughnuts and walked back to my bull.

Four KM later I reached the border again and crossed it in the german direction this time. Another half an hour and I reached Rastatt. I still had some time before my train departs, and I filled this time with some coffee and some ice-cream. I reached the station in Rastatt at 15:15 and had plenty of time before the train departs at 15:34. One change in Karlsruhe and a good hour later I reached my home again.
