In the woods near Hohenfelden.




First of all, I read about this hobby in a geocaching blog some days ago, maybe it were weeks.
So I began to watch my home graticule for a spot that was easily to reach.
Today it was quite perfect. Only 2,5km away from my home destination I started walking quite after coming home from work.
By viewing the map I nearly knew where my journey was going to, because a few days ago I placed a geocache nearby.
On my way I saw some roe deers that were jumping over the way only 70-80m in front of me.
I walked some known paths that would be good for biking as well until I arrived a road junction from where it was a little bit more difficult to go on. It was still a smaller trail, but some timberworks and rain from the last days made the path a little muddy and littered by the rests of the trees that were cut down.
The last 30-40m I had to walk up the hill to reach the hashpoint.
And for my very first hash point, I have to say, that it is a stupid hobby. ;-) Going out and there is nothing to find. OK, I'm addicted to geocaching. But nevertheless it was quite fun to go out to the nature, having a goal to reach even there is no box where a logbook waits which I can sign.
The way back was relaxed and I saw some more roe deers that passed the way.

Rincewind, Mampfred and the gang

Mampfred and Rincewind had convinced two colleagues to go hashing a day earlier. Everyone came prepared and after Mampfred had created the expedition page at 5pm they headed for the hash around 6pm in no less than three cars (don't ask).

They found a good spot to leave the cars and walked the rest of the way on foot. The hash was easily found and we shot a couple of stupid grins before heading back to the cars and going out separate ways.

Little did we know that while we were out hashing, Crissar has sneakily documented his expedition earlier the same day. What a surprise, this graticule is getting too crowded me thinks ;)

@Crissar: let us know in advance next time and maybe we can stage a meetup. We're usually quite late in the day but we're happy to adapt :)

Thanks to the dragalongs, time will tell if we recruited another permanent hasher ...
