on a disused path in a forest near Roßdorf



We started from a parkinglot near Roßdorf and walked on nice big gravel paths towards the hash. The maps had indicated a narrow passage from the south, which was blocked by a laid down tree deliberately placed there as a barrier. But there was still a possibility to get to it from the north.

So we walked around and tried to get to the hash from the other side. It would have been possible and quite easy to reach, but a sign kindly asked us to stay away to preserve the local wildlife and we therefore could only get to within 40 m.

Undeterred by that, we explored the area and had fun climbing onto large fallen trees and into conically arranged hovels made out of wood pieces. Gefierbrand even fell down without any harm done.

As google maps had suggested we might see some teddy bears nailed to trees in the "birthday avenue", we went there to have a look. Unbeknownst to us, all the pictures we had seen online were 20 years old an no stuffed animals were actually remaining there. We did however find lots of small plaques indicating names and birthdays of many children before walking back and returning home.




Gefrierbrand & Santu earned the No trespassing consolation prize
by almost (40 m) reaching the (49, 8) geohash on 2022-03-21.
