The hash lay 500 meters west of Spangenberg on the national road.






I left home at 12 o'clock and started to hitchhike at 12:45. Within two minutes a car stopped and I got a lift to Hessisch Lichtenau. There I had to walk to the very end of the town and at that place I waited very long. Then I got a lift to the next village and again I waited very long. I thought about a xkcd meetup, but I was late. Then a car stopped and I got a lift to the road parking just some meters before the hash. I walked to it and arrived there at 15:57! I took the usual photos and waited there only these minutes, because the hash lay in the inner side of the curve and there was a lot of traffic on the road and I felt dangerous. Then I walked around and found a geocache, only 52 meters away, but out of sight. On the way home I hitchhiked too. And the car passed this hash. But I don't think that I can claim the speed racer achievement, because the hash lay 50 meters behind a 70 km/h-zone and I don't know, if and where the car made it to 100 km/h.
