Next to a street close to (or in?) Bad Vilbel.



Drive there, make a photo, maybe do a cache or two.


We started off around 4pm, QuarterCacher kindly donated his car and took the Autobahn to Frankfurt. Arrived around 5pm and parked outside a large graveyard. The hash was VERY close down the road next to a fence - in fact just outside the fence or we wouldn't have been able to reach it.

We found an empty beer bottle exactly at the hash and while we were at it collected some more trash for the Geotrashing achievement. We'll even collect the refund for the bottle to make up for (some of the) used fuel ;)

Despite darkness and rain we decided to have a quick look for Geocaches nearby. Found GC12Z9E and GC23W84 so we had a go at them.

The first one we believe was pretty much across the street from the hash and a good candidate for at least an honorary Hash Collision achievement. Unfortunately we didn't find the cache and agreed that it probably was destroyed by recent work on the bus station waiting area. I've just now looked at the cache page again and apparently someone found the cache a couple of days later so we were probably just blind, or it was too dark, or both :(

The next cache was a bit further away in the outskirts of Bad Vilbel - again we looked for the cache for quite a while and couldn't find it so we eventually gave up and went back home.

The moral of the story is that Geocaching is rubbish and you never find anything anyway. Geohashing rocks! :)
