Participants

Expedition

This expedition started in Hannover on the day before. I took the train via Köln to Aachen in the late afternoon, arriving in the evening. After a quick stop at a hotel I got a rental e-bike and cycled west. I noticed that I had crossed into the Netherlands since everyone suddenly had yellow license plates and Morgan Freeman was speaking Dutch.

After cycling through Vaals, Lemiers and Mamelis I crossed back into Germany. As I approached the site of the Geohash I noticed that the field had been harvested already. However, entering the field was not even necessary since there was a strip of grass between the field and the farm next to it.

It was a few minutes before midnight now. I located the coordinates, and as midnight came around, recorded proof. Afterwards, I cycled back to downtown Aachen and saw some late-night farming on the way. In Aachen, I checked out the dome, and went back to the hotel eventually. After getting some sleep, I later visited 2022-07-26 51 5 in Wyler.
