Short escape from the 36C * in Rüsselsheim.
Before I took possession of the Schanzerkopf, I wandered around the Opel meadows a little longer. Unfortunately, the stream that goes with it is almost dried up and the flies and horseflies almost eat you up! So I went to the Schanzerkopf to enjoy the sunset!

Today it was all about Waldböckelheim.
Unfortunately, I was only able to start at 2 p.m., according to the Hunsbuckel
had to walk through the vineyards with me at about 28 C *.
Shadows only temporarily gave us a few clouds and that
290 Hm say little about the steepness of the paths.
After approx. 8 km, Hunsbuckel's circulation broke,
but he didn't want to spoil my hike either.
When it was not after a few breaks and a cereal bar
better, we stopped the tour because his health is more important than my hiking pleasure!
In this way: recover well, we still many
nice tours can run together !!!!!greeting

Today we went with Manggongjai on a tour around the Heimberg, which we only saw from a distance on the Sponheim circuit.The tour starts in Waldböckelheim and leads first to the mountain church, an imposing building in the middle of a village with maybe twenty streets. From there it goes in a wide arc around the Heimberg to the abandoned vineyard slopes above Schloßböckelheim. From there you have several great views of the Nahe between Oberhausen and Boos above the Nahegau nature reserve.From there it goes up to the 29 meter high Heimbergturm, a fairly sturdy wooden tower with a covered observation deck. Now it goes down to the Seibersbach and then ascends over a steep single trail to the Teufelshöhle. Here, unfortunately, my circulation went awry today, so that after the unsuccessful search for the Devil's Cave (all densely overgrown), we canceled the planned detour to Boos and Oberstreit and returned to Waldböckelheim via the mown grain fields.

Michels Vital Tour-
a tour without "highlights" but varied
and very nice to run! The signage is not perfect and some signs were probably "rotated",
this is how we came off the track, also because we were not careful! When I noticed it, we were already over 1000m down the mountain and there was no other way back to the tour. we had to go back the same way - uphill!
In Schöneberg we looked at the Catholic parish church "Finding the Cross". It was built between 1891 and 1893 under the priest Heinrich Schmitz!A nice tour that is worth walking!greeting

I made a quick decision yesterday evening on the way to Herschwiesen to spend a night under the stars. Unfortunately I had left my sleeping pad at home, so it was pretty cool on the back! Madness what was there, apart from the party-loving village youth in the forest. At first an owl did not let me fall asleep, then a deer roared, then a whole horde came up, whatever the slope, which I lasered away with my flashlight and when I finally fell asleep, a forester woke me up around 2.30 a.m. He's at least as scared as me😂! There was still a very interesting and nice conversation that I slept there, under the starry sky, only interested him because of my motivation, do not leave the bean!

Today Manggongjai went on a tour around the Nitztal in the Eifel. I copied the tour from Joetobn last year. Although there were no off-grid passages, two passages were borderline, while the rest mostly consist of forest and field paths.The tour starts in the small town of Nitztal and continues uphill to the Steinbüchel to the Nitztalblick viewpoint. From there it goes over golden fields to Waldesch. The mountain range then led us to the old conveyor wheel of the Bendisberg mine, which is supposed to indicate the hidden visitor mine on the country road. The route then took us to St. Jost im Nitztal, where we took a break with cold drinks. From there the path leads through a wild notched valley back to the Nitztal.The tour then follows this on very wide forest paths, sometimes through green meadows, sometimes past large rock massifs, but permanently with ringing and calling mountain bikers in the back. Although this section is beautiful, the uniformity runs unbelievably until the destination in Nitztal is reached.

Start early to avoid the rain that should start at 10 a.m. What can I say? From 10 a.m. it was dry and the sun came out!
The 40D unfortunately stayed in the backpack due to the rain!
Since the tour does not offer any great highlights, it was not bad - the way was the goal!
