The hash of today lay in the middle of the Oberstes Holz, a small forest between Felsberg and Fritzlar.




Today was a special day for me. The Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure in Germany and the infas Institut für angewandte Sozialwissenschaftinstitute for applied social science carry out a study Mobility in Germany. And they picked me out for reference. And today was the day of report. I shall note all my today's ways and send the result to them.

So I thought, is there something, which is a normal mode of transport for me, which I can write down into such a study. And what do I do around, specially here? Hitchhiking. So I decided for today, I have to hitchhike. And where is the best place to go for on such a day? Of course, geohashing! So for today I had two jobs: hitchhiking first, geohashing second.

Report 1[edit]

2017-07-21 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 8229.jpg 2017-07-21 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 8231.jpg It was a usual hitchhiking. I left home, bought on the run an orange soda, wrote a sign, waited for half an hour and with one car I arrived there out at the national road in the height of the forest Oberstes Holz.

2017-07-21 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 8273.jpg 2017-07-21 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 8275.jpg The direct way was full of stinging nettles and I made a detour on other ways and then, near the geohash only 50 meters away and looking for the entrance into the thicket, I found this sign. Attacks of birds of prey! In the southwestern edge of the forest. The geohash lay in the northwestern edge, but on the way home I wanted to walk through this area. The geohash was easy to find, nothing spectacular.

2017-07-21 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 8316.jpg And while standing at this post, looking and taking photos, I heard this bird. And it cried. And it was not the usual cry. The bird flew across the northern end of the forest in circles and cried: cree - cree - cree - cree. But as I went away from the post it changed to the normal cry: creeeeh — creeeeh — creeeeh — creeeeh. And I thought about what would have happend to me if the today's hash was in this northeastern end of the forest?
2017-07-21 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 8341.jpg After this adventure I went down to Cappel, the village to which this forest belongs, and to Niedermöllrich, from where I hitchhiked home, this time with two cars.
2017-07-21 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 8483.jpg In the evening I made an excursion to the airport. During the documenta the transport authority of Kassel decided to create an hourly bus service to the airport, also during the night. Nothing to do with geohashing, but something to do with public transport and my sorts of using it.

They didn't have Niedermöllrich in their database. The database doesn't know the airport in Calden and not the Fieseler-Storch-Straße. And the day of report is not my day between rising in the morning and going to sleep sometimes later, they ask for the 24h-day. In their logo, there are neither hitchhikers nor geohashers to see. https://mid.infas-online.de/q1/media/MiD/mid_logo.png
