Location[edit]

On the Highway A9 between Allershausen and Kreuz Neufahrn in southern direction

Participants[edit]

Plans[edit]

Solli plans to go there around lunch time. Find an app that displays location and speed, make a screen video and drive from Allershausen to the south.

Expedition[edit]

What an utterly stupid hobby! I spent my lunch break driving 75 km in total just to get to a random point. Why? Because I can. I took the small road next to the highway to Allershausen, passing the hashpoint within 150 meters. Then I went on the A9 and sped to the south, driving over the hash location.

Since I was alone and I did not want to play around with my phone or a camara while driving I used the app "GPS Speedo" for the proof. This app simply displays location and speed. I took a screen record while passing the point and afterwards extracted the appropiate still from the movie. Note that due to the update interval the displayed location is not 100% exact, but it is within seven metres.

Speed Racer[edit]

I was hoping to earn the speed racer ribbon during this expedition. As you might know there is no general speed limit on German "Autobahnen", but at this location there usually is one set by the Verkehrsleitsystem (traffic control system). However when I went there there was no restriction - just a few hundred metres behind the hash point maximum speed was 120 km/h. There was even a radar speed check on the next bridge, I hope they didn't get me. If they did I can at least claim a police geohash. :-/

Is it true that Solli earned the Speed racer achievement?
In principle, yes.
But there was no speed limit on that German Autobahn and therefore no maximum speed. (2017-03-16 48 11).
