A wood on a quiet street between Schwanfeld and Obereisenheim.



Being bored I decided to go on a geohashing trip. The geohash (in the neighbouring graticule) was close enough that I felt comfortable going for a try.

After lunch in Würzburg I entered the coordinates in my GPS (on my smartphone) and went off (by car). In the first try, I overshot and drove too far. My GPS didn't simply say "turn around" and instead let me drive to the next village to take strange turns there. Also seems like my GPS doesn't handle off-street coodinates well, because it wanted to send me back and forth in a loop (between the two villages). The street was quite quiet, not many cars going there. In fact, some people were taking a walk there.

Finally I found a place to park my car and walked the rest of the way along a path though the nice autumnal woods. Lots of called yellow-brownish leaves on it. The weather was nice, the sun was about one hour from setting. The phone batteries lasted long enough so I could find the geohash and take a photo.


none, sorry. Phone batteries were quite down already.
