On the Autobahn 61 near Bassenheim.



Drive through there, obviously.

If anybody else might want to meetup, we shall choose a spot besides the road. I Propose the parkingspace "Im Singten" shortly west of the crossing with A48.



This was a great and relatively easy opportunity. I had to drive home from work anyways and choosing a route which went through the hashpoint was an acceptable detour. I was alone in my car and safety is quite important, so I did not even attempt to take photos. Instead, I only started my GPS logger.

The Hashpoint was located on the left lane passing through the Autobahn-crossing between A48 and A61. Usually, there is no general speed limit (yet) on the Autobahn, but on this specific part the maximal allowed velocity is 130 km/h (~36 m/s; ~81 mph). I have driven though there on numerous occasions, but usually I took the exit to the right and did not continue straight. However, I have definitively passed through the exact hashpoint before (probably even at the maximum allowed speed). On At least one occasion, I distinctly remember moving furniture through this intersection. Of course I can't remember the exact date more precisely than "probably sometime in 2020, but definitively not before 2018" and I have no GPS logs or anything like it to prove it. But since cheating is encouraged for that achievement and I did not even cheat, but just don't have (visible) proof other than said furniture in my home, I'll allow myself the ribbon.

After passing through the hash, my hood started to wobble somewhat and I was glad to have the aforementioned parking spot "Im Singten" relatively close ahead of me. There, I was able to fix the car by slamming the hood closed and continued home. Obviously, there were numerous other people driving through the spot, but apparently nobody who that they were. Or maybe all of them were Ninjas?


As I had planned to visit Gefrierbrand this evening, today's hashpoint meant a detour of only 15 minutes for me. I installed a screen recorder, activated it, set the cruise control to 130km/h and let things happen. Obviously this was a rewarding hashlocation to be visited with little effort.
