an orchard a meadow near Scherwiller.
Baarde is going to take his bicycle and ride there in the afternoon. He expects to reach the hashpoint around 15:00.
The hashpoint was located near Scherwiller, a small wine-producing town along the EuroVelo 5 (Again! What a great week for geohashing).
According to satellite imagery, the geohash was supposed to be in the middle of an orchard. However, the coordinates were completely tree-less.
After recording proof, I turned westwards and made a 20 km loop through the Vosges mountains before stopping on a small hill below the Ramstein and Ortenbourg, two ruined castles commanding Scherwiller and the entrance to the Val de Villé and Val d'Argent valleys.
On my way back, I suddenly noticed a strange noise and vibrations coming from my front wheel. Upon inspection I discovered a tear in the tire bead, which has caused the tire to partially dislodge from the rim and form a bulge that was rubbing against the break pad. I was quite annoyed as I hadn't any spare tire on me and I was 9000 wheel revolutions (about 20 km) away from home. However, after decreasing the air pressure in the tire, the bulge subsided and I was able to reach home without further incident.
