Plans[edit]

I knew the hash was on a possible way home, as I had my motorbike in Karlsruhe. I thought about making this hash depending on how the tour will have turned out when I've reached Freudenstadt.

Expedition[edit]

It was really hot when I left. With all the safety clothing I almost melted away. So I thought I will take the Autobahn at least to get away from the bigger citys. But I did not came far, shortly after the Kreuz Karlsruhe my bike began to rattle and loosing speed. I immediately got onto the safety lane and stopped. I did not know what was wrong with my bike (the bearing of the conrod broke, as I found out the day after) but I wasn't able to go further. I thought about calling breakdown service, but first I called my father. He had time to come get me, so I preferred that over having to transport the bike home anyway after paying breakdown service. And my dad shouldn't need long to get me.

EXCEPT that the car he took to recover me broke down too. So he called a friend of him to retrieve us both (not the car though). The friend also immediately left, but still in the aftermath I waited on the site of the autobahn for almost exactly seven hours! Probably I should have just called breakdown service... I hadn't had the time in years to be so bored like that evening.

Needless to say I did not came near the hash at all.
