In a forest in the Odenwald near Modautal.
- Timm: I'll take my bike and will probably arrive around 15:30.
- I won't be on time at all. I vastly underestimated the steepness and the lack of paved bike paths -- Timm (talk) @49.8148,8.7133 15:47, 8 May 2018 (GMT+02:00)
I came home from uni around noon and was in the mood for cycling. The hashpoint was 20km away, so I got on my new old bike and took off for my first big tour through the Odenwald.
The trip turned out to be way more challenging than I expected; the bike only had 6 gears and I wasn't very used to cycling uphill, but the biggest problems were the unpaved mountain bike trails that OsmAnd chose for my route that I didn't check before leaving. However, I made it on top of the last hill in one piece and it was still light, so I was happy. The hash was in a thicket of undergrowth near the hilltop through which I had to climb to get within precision range. After taking a few pictures and spelling "XKCD" on the ground with a couple of branches (which will probably puzzle a forester), I left for home. The trip back was a little easier, maybe because my dying phone battery made me forgo OsmAnd's guidance.
