Expedition: Jens[edit]

Looks like last weekends promotion tour was not as successful as it should have been. Next point of category “too close to miss” has arrived near Jena and ???? has not created an account yet. Perhaps she will never do so.

And so Juja’s last message to me on Friday was “Saturday, geohashing?”. I think she didn’t really expect that I would go there, but surprise, surprise, I had time and the point was really close, so why not.

The tour was quite usual. I cycled to Porstendorf along the Saale-bikeway. In Porstendorf I integrated the mandatory detour, but after 2 minutes I realized that I was wrong. Another 2 minutes later I found the path that was directly leading to the point. The last few steps I had to cross a meadow the reach the edge of the forest, where the point was located. The weather was fine, so there was not even danger of getting dirty shoes. I took some photos and went home. Very easy, once again.

Like Jens said, I wrote him on Friday and asked him, like he should be already used to, whether we would go to the Saturday Geohash together, but he didn't answer and so I assumed his answer was what I am used to: Nah, my sofa is waiting :) So I didn't really expect him to go, and accordingly had to care for the Geohash myself.

But first I met U&A and we did a cycling tour together because it was the first really nice day in February, the sun was shining and the temperatures were even pretty friendly (above freezing point), so we used the weather. At the end of our trip I just added a quick detour to the Geohash while U&A preferred to hurry home to get food. Easy to find, I could almost cycle to the point, just had to overcome some trees that were recently cut down around the hash and that was that.
