This Geohash is located in a glade near Gusborn.
From Dannenberg, I walked to this geohash, it was about 13 kilometers. I saw the rural side of this region, the Wendland, I saw dogs and a cat, horses, chickens, cows, and domesticated ducks. A lot of fields too, of course, many of them already harvested. The remaining plants were corn and potatoes. Especially the potatoes made it look like the recent drought hit the Wendland hard, but the farmers fight it with irrigation sprinklers.
The Lüchow-Dannenberg district also includes Gorleben, where the government wanted (or still wants?) to build a permanent storage facility for nuclear waste, and accordingly, I saw lots of protest signs against that. The classic "Atomkraft? Nein danke!" ("Nuclear Energy? No Thanks!") stickers and signs, but also lots of yellow crosses, that I haven't seen before, but apparently they are a protest symbol too. The protest that left the most lasting impression was a cemetery designated for the Bundestag (federal parliament) members, where they shall be buried after everyone dies in a nuclear disaster.
This geohash was located in a glade that had a path leading to it which must not be used between March and Mid-August for nature protection purposes. Luckily, this is a September geohash, however I later noticed that it would have been possible to reach this geohash without using this path. The exact coordinates were not difficult to locate.
After recording proof, I stopped here to eat some of my sandwiches. A thought popped into my head: No active geohashers are in this graticule, so another human coming even close to this geohash was unlikely. The glade is surrounded by trees, and you'd have to be inside it to see me. I'd hear a farmer's tractor from far away. I decided to geoflash, and sure enough, there were no witnesses. To use Sourcerer's words: "There was no public indecency as there was no public!"
On the way back to the train station I chose a different path, this time I accompanied a small river. I like the landscape this geohash made me look at.
