In the woods near Oranienburg.


CamelCase (talk)


Having arrived at Oranienburg's train station, I headed out in the direction of the hash. Soon I left the town and was following a track surrounded by corn fields. Having crossed a bridge over a highway and passed a few last buildings I finally reached the town's official border and continued following the track which led me into a forest with lots of mosquitoes. Some time later, after having crossed a high-speed road, which went through said forest, my phone's battery started dying, so I grabbed my portable battery charger in order discover that it lacks the capability to charge my phone via a fancy type-c cord. Since I was in the middle of a forest and had no intention to wander aimlessly on its tracks, I used the last amount of charge my phone had to find the next bus stop. I had to go back to that high-speed road, and follow it for two kilometers. I eventually reached the stop and, after waiting for a bit over an hour, a bus arrived to take me back to Oranienburg. I don't think xkcd #1872 is that funny anymore. :p
