Who Went[edit]

The Expedition[edit]

TheOneRing[edit]

This geohash was once again in walking distance: 6.3km as the bird flies. Naturally, streets don't go that way, so in the end it was about 9.2km one way, 18.5km in total.

But first things first. Last week I was in Switzerland, without the opportunity to go geohashing in my old home graticule. Seeing the close geohash today, this was more than an option.

I was thinking about going by bike and eventually decided in favour of walking. The weather was nice, sunny and up to 20°C, which is unusual for beginning of November.

I started at 11am, and headed towards Raisting. Raisting, you say? I heard that before, and you are right. First part of the tour was identical to one geohash last year. At the entry of Raisting, I left that route and walked along harvested fields. Many people were going by bike or horse and used the nice weather like me.

With about 1km to go I had to walk next to a street with frequent traffic but the shoulders were dry and easy to walk on.

At the geohash, I had a small rest and took the usual photographs. I was thinking about taking a different way back home, but I wanted to take more photos of the scenery.

On my way back, I was overtaken by three riders on horses, which might be an interesting idea for an upcoming geohash. (I have never ridden yet, which is a problem.)

A very nice tour today, and a good act of sports (at least my legs think so).
