In the forest near Ispringen.




I have to go to Stuttgart today and will swing by on my way home.


Things in Stuttgart took much longer than I expected, and so I reached Pforzheim at 8:30 pm. It is mid-Marc, and so it was completly dark, when I left the Autobahn. I found Ispringen immediatly, but it took me quite a while to find the industrial area, where the hash was near to. But finally, after several wrong turns I found a parking place and started walking. It was only 500 m to the hash as the crow flies, but there was a big fenced industrial area. So I walked to the west for 500 m , before I could turn left and enter the forest. The ligths from the plant next to me enligthened the foret for a while, but after a while it was pretty dark. 5 minutes later I was near the hash and had to enter the dark forest. My mobile was running out of battery so I couldn't use the torch. I was lucky as it was a beech grove with little underwood. GPS-reception was bad in the forest, and I tried to use my phone as little as possible, so the best shot I got was about 8 m, but hashdroid was happy, and so was I. Unfortunatly I couldn't take any pictures because my phone didn't allow to use any flash (remember: low battery). So I fought my way back to the path and continued into the direction, I came from. After a while, I reached the fence of the plant again and followed it for a while (with a little more light). I wanted to turn left, back to my car, but wasn't allowed to. Just when I thought about urning back, the fence turned left. I'm still not sure, wether there was a path next to the fence or wether it was just cut for support of the fence, but I could follow it through the forest. It felt like 200 m later, I saw the streetlights of Ispringen just 20 m in front of me, but just then, the fence turned left, and fenced just the lawn between the lights and me. Turning back? Well, Icame so far .... So I followed the fence to the right, and I was lucke, just 50 m after that, the fence turned left again, and I reached a residencial street. And, even more luck, this street led me directly to my car. I could just take a picture of the succesfull hasher under the street ligths before the phone died.


10 KM of driving and 2 KM walking
