Location

At the Rhine River near Groß-Rohrheim


Participants


Plan

Drive near the hashpoint, reach it, walk back to the car, find a few geocaches and drive home.

But after may days of rain the river may have flooded the meadows next to it, where the hashpoint lies. So it might be impossible to reach this point without a boat or fishing wader (Wathose).


Expedition

The river was very high today: About 50 cm more and I could not use the parking lot near the river. On the way to the hashpoint I took a few photos and found a broken umbrella, just in time for the beginning short drizzle.

At the hashpoint on a meadow next to the Rhine the grass was trodden down a little. Was it by deer or by a dancing geohasher? I took a few photos and walked back to the car, where I had a nice talk with a man from Groß-Rohrheim.

But I could not solve the riddle of GC31WGW "Gefällt mir" on my Galaxy S2 and so I drove home without finding a geocache. - At home I found the solution.

On my way back I dropped the umbrella at a trash bin to get the Geotrash Achievement.
