The goal today was the juniper heather on the Wurmberg near Hardheim. Since we hadn't been able to look at the rocket 🚀 up close while hiking last week, I decided to do this right away. Then we went to the Galgenberg. Since you are not allowed to go into the juniper heather (Nabu) by bike, I drove around it. From Hardheim it went back the Erftal to Eichenbühl, up over the Kohlgrund and then over the Jungholzstraße to the Dürrhof. On the way it dripped a few times but I was lucky enough to return home dry.

Started today at 6:00 p.m. when it was blowing snow. The goal this time was Wessental and the closer I got to the place, the sunnier it got. On the way we saw deer 4 times (11 in total) discovered a fox which I initially thought was a hare because it was hopping around in the meadow so strangely. Since there was still time I walked towards Neunkirchen and watched the sunset. Made a detour to the forest chapel on the way back.

After I had done the first road test yesterday, the test in the field followed today. The first obstacle that came up was because the engine didn't help either 🤣. Gravel road was ok, the forest paths are not nice to drive at the moment because everything is hard and uneven after the mud. On the Hohe Stein, all the ways looked like "zackered" because wood felling work was being done and heavy equipment was being handled on site. Pushed the bike more than drove it. At least the view of Mondfeld & Stadtprozelten including the ferry was nicer (2 trees more and it would be perfect).
Up to Freudenberg I was shaken up quite a bit. The refuge on Viehweg got a new equipment and after 20 km I was happy to finish the tour. The saddle does not (yet) have any suspension and now my A .... I am a little painful. Conclusion, it is all-terrain because I would not have been able to ride this route with the trekking bike. But why should you prefer to drive flat forest paths or gravel roads so that you can also ride a trekking bike.

I wanted to visit my brother tonight. The car parked in the moon field and with the last ferry trip ⛴ over the Main in the evening. I wanted to go to Henneburg for a while, but unfortunately it was 20 minutes too late to catch the sunset. After visiting my brother in Faulbach, I went back to Mahenvelt via the lock in the dark (moon field, what I learned today from the memorial stone).
