Remove this section if you don't want an image at the top (left) of your report.  You should remove the "Image:" or "File:"
 
tag from your image file name, and replace the all upper-case word IMAGE in the above line.
 
 
 
And DON'T FORGET to add your expedition and the best photo you took to the gallery on the Main Page! We'd love to read your report, but that means we first have to discover it! :)

Rincewind had messaged us after the [[2021-11-12 49 8]] near-miss and asked for the possibility to go hashing together. Very soon after, the upcoming location was not far from Darmstadt and appeared to be easily reachable, so we used the newly exchanged contact info and arranged a meetup in the forest.

This took somewhat longer to document than it should have... When I received Gefrierbrand's message on the phone, I hadn't even checked the coordinates for Friday and was positively surprised, both by the coordinates and more so by Gefrierbrand's and Santu's quick response. <br>

We figured the hash would go well as a short trip with the Offspring and looked forward to meeting the two plus Pedro.

We drove to a nearby parkinglot and started to walk from there. As we neared the hashlocation, we easily spotted Rincewind, Yakamoz and TheOffspring already waiting at a nice bench overlooking the adjacent field. Especially Pedro was very eager to meet them, but we kept him close to us to not risk getting dirty pawprints all over the other nice people.

The hashlocation was a few dozen meters further in the shrubbery so Santu, Gefrierbrand and Pedro ventured into it to collect the necessary proof. We then returned and chatted for a bit before taking another picture alltogether while holding XKCD letters.

After that we walked back while exchanging tales of previous hashing adventures. Now less exited, Pedro could happily walk along us all. We then split from Yakamoz, Rincewind and TheOffspring to go look at nearby [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menhir Menhir] stones, which turned out to be relatively unspectacular, but it was a nice walk there anyways.

We set off, blindly following a certain popular navigation app. Since the permitted roads ended in a parking space for hikers and such, we used that and walked towards the hash. A bit earlier than we hoped for, TheOffspring decided walking was beneath her and she rather went along for a piggyback ride. <br>When we approached the coordinates, quite near to the foot/bike road through the forest, we put "XKCD" on Gustav's Bank (bench) opposite the field next to the coordinates and did a hash dance, then waited for Santu, Gefrierbrand and Pedro, who arrived shortly after us. Took some pictures, they also went dancing in thorns and brush and we walked back to the parking lot together and making short-talk, before Santu, Gefrierbrand and Pedro did some more exploring. <br>

Plans

Santu & Gefrierbrand

Rincewind had messaged us after the 2021-11-12 49 8 near-miss and asked for the possibility to go hashing together. Very soon after, the upcoming location was not far from Darmstadt and appeared to be easily reachable, so we used the newly exchanged contact info and arranged a meetup in the forest.

Rincewind & Yakamoz

This took somewhat longer to document than it should have... When I received Gefrierbrand's message on the phone, I hadn't even checked the coordinates for Friday and was positively surprised, both by the coordinates and more so by Gefrierbrand's and Santu's quick response.
We figured the hash would go well as a short trip with the Offspring and looked forward to meeting the two plus Pedro.

Expedition

Santu & Gefrierbrand

We drove to a nearby parkinglot and started to walk from there. As we neared the hashlocation, we easily spotted Rincewind, Yakamoz and TheOffspring already waiting at a nice bench overlooking the adjacent field. Especially Pedro was very eager to meet them, but we kept him close to us to not risk getting dirty pawprints all over the other nice people.

The hashlocation was a few dozen meters further in the shrubbery so Santu, Gefrierbrand and Pedro ventured into it to collect the necessary proof. We then returned and chatted for a bit before taking another picture alltogether while holding XKCD letters.

After that we walked back while exchanging tales of previous hashing adventures. Now less exited, Pedro could happily walk along us all. We then split from Yakamoz, Rincewind and TheOffspring to go look at nearby Menhir stones, which turned out to be relatively unspectacular, but it was a nice walk there anyways.

Yakamoz & Rincewind

We set off, blindly following a certain popular navigation app. Since the permitted roads ended in a parking space for hikers and such, we used that and walked towards the hash. A bit earlier than we hoped for, TheOffspring decided walking was beneath her and she rather went along for a piggyback ride.
When we approached the coordinates, quite near to the foot/bike road through the forest, we put "XKCD" on Gustav's Bank (bench) opposite the field next to the coordinates and did a hash dance, then waited for Santu, Gefrierbrand and Pedro, who arrived shortly after us. Took some pictures, they also went dancing in thorns and brush and we walked back to the parking lot together and making short-talk, before Santu, Gefrierbrand and Pedro did some more exploring.
Yay, coordinates reached and it was nice meeting you guys. Let's meet again. :)
