The Geohash is located in a forest of thorn bushes in Bad Gandersheim.



I thought this one would be easy. Take the train to Bad Gandersheim, walk the rest. It's not even a full kilometer!


Because I am stupid, I tried to get to the Geohash the most direct way possible. Since Google Maps only showed a very indirect way, I thought that I could go a more straightforward way.. and that's what I tried. I climbed three hills instead of following a road, and crossed train tracks and a street.

However, I ended up on a path, being only 80 meters away from the coordinates, but couldn't continue, since there was a wall of thorns in front of me. I already crossed some on my way up, but there was no way I could enter that bush forest there. So I circled the bush forest. There was a tree stand that I climbed to get a better view of the forest, and there also was a small path leading into the forest. However, that one turned out to be a dead end with some boxes at the end, which probably were bee hives. Additionally, there was a cool tree that I photographed. At some point, I reached a spot that was only about 20 meters away from the coordinates.

The torns weren't that bad at this spot, but still not good. I entered. At one point, I lost my glasses. I only noticed this afterwards, but over here, a pack of velociraptors attacked me. Finally, I arrived at the coordinates.

After taking proof I got out of the forest and went back to the train station. It turned out that the spot were I entered was only ~30 minutes away from the train station. I should have taken that way instead of my stupid first route.
