In a field near Illhaeusern



I'm a little bit tired after yesterday's expedition, the weather is meh, and it's probably yet another cornfield. But it's very close, so I guess I'll attempt it.


I left home at 14:20 and headed toward Illhaeusern. The most direct route from Sélestat to Illhaeusern is a foot path that goes through the Illwald forest then runs along an arm of the river Ill. It did not look very bicycleable, and until today I had always picked the longer route, which follows the EuroVelo 5 next to the vineyards between Kintzheim and Bergheim. But Geohashing is a game of spontaneous adventure…

As expected, the path wasn't great: mostly grass and dirt, with a lot of potholes, a couple of sections of cobblestones and some strange meanders. It's not terrible, but in the future I'll probably stick to nicer route.

As I approached the village, the forest and the meadows gave way to a sea of corn. As I had feared, the geohash was yet again in a cornfield. However, this time, there was a direct path from the path to the hashpoint between two rows of cornstalks.
