Today's location is in a field near Hauendorf, not far from Entmannsberg and Bayreuth.

Country: Germany; state: Bayern (Bavaria, EU:DE:BY); district: Bayreuth rural district

Weather: clouded



In order to go skiing with friends, I first had to pick up one of those friends (including ski equipment) in Pegnitz. And after a long long time without any nearby/interesting/schedule-compatible hashpoints I was glad to find one not far off the route. Instead of leaving the Autobahn A9 at the Pegnitz exit, I already left it at the Bayreuth-South exit, then I followed the B22 federal road for a bit. At Lehen ("fief") I turned into a smaller country road and then I was already near the hashfield. There was a small patch of tarmac next to an intersection where I could park the car. There were already growing small plants (young corn?) in the field, so I first set out to walk around the field, with a small detour to a lake. While I was walking along the field's edge I saw five deer running across a field further away. They ran across the road that I had just taken, luckily there was no car at the time. Once I had walked halfway around the hashfield I carefully walked along one of the tire tracks where no plants were growing. It was very muddy. I had estimated well and the hashpoint was right on that tire track.

After the usual pictures I walked back to the edge of the field, getting even more mud all over my shoes. It was a bit difficult to get even the majority of the mud off. With only a short stop in the next village (there was a sign that advertised in-house-produced honey, but they were closed) I continued to Pegnitz. We put the skiing equipment in my car and drove to Oberstdorf. When I was walking into the newly-built appartment we had rented for the weekend, many lumps of dried mud fell off my shoes. Oops.
