Expedition

2015-05-16 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 7018.jpg 2015-05-16 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 7078.jpg I left home at 12, started to hitchhike at 13:10 and arrived at Höhnscheid at 14:10. Because I had enough time I tried to find some geocaches. I found one at the beginning of the walk and one at the end of the walk.
After the first geocache I followed the hiking trail H7, then I missed the trail, walked around to find it again and noticed that the H7 trail was not my way. I walked back to the place, where my way should go, but I didn't find it between the trees. I walked around the place and found a possible track, between the trees with the white rings:

I looked around, but I couldn't see, where north, south, west, east, up or down or the geohasher were. 2015-05-16 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 7065.jpg 2015-05-16 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 7066.jpg

2015-05-16 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 7072.jpg 2015-05-16 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 7076.jpg I waited at the hash until hash o'clock. Then I walked north to the next forest way. This way had rough gravel, hard to walk on it. But later the ground of this way changed to normal gravel. Two ways later I found this big forest machine. I think, this is the reason, why all the muddy forest ways exist. Is this the famous veloci-raptor?
2015-05-16 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 7115.jpg All the way along to and from the hash I collected the trash. In Ippinghausen I found an empty waste bin and I put all the trash into it.
