About Knut Ursula

Ich bin seit 2016 dem Wanderwahn verfallen, nach dem mich meine Kinder zu einem Vatertagswochenende in den Harz lotsten. Seit dem bin ich über die Alpen gelaufen nach Italien auf dem E5, habe die Lüneburger Heide auf dem Heidschnuckenweg durchquert, bin den Harzer Lutherweg abgelaufen und mache Tagestouren in der Umgebung von Zeven, im Harz oder im Sauerland/Rotharrgebirge ... gern auch längere (längste bisher 37 Km)....

      I started the second part of the way in Blankenburg to get to Thale. I quickly canceled Thale as a goal. After a nice start at the "grandmother" first traffic jam at the grandfather's vantage point,: - (((. From then on you could only drift with the flood of hikers, it was a little frustrating to dodge oncoming ridge paths, overtake slower ones .... OMG, all viewpoints besieged.
      In retrospect it was still a great hike, great weather, nice people, everyone had fun and on the way back the number of hikers we met was again manageable. Finally, a stroll through the historic center completed the day.

      The ruins (remains) of the Altenburg are located near Heimburg. On the way there a bit of lost place and then again a great all-round view. Today the history picture was completed with 3 small motorcycles (mopeds) brand Simson Suhl from GDR times.

      Today it was time to collect stamps. On the way to Blankenburg, the highlights at the "roadside", not quite compliant with the rules, collected. I was the first to head for the tower in Benzingerode, which is actually on the Harzer Klosterwanderweg. From here you have a great view of the Harz Mountains and its foreland, in good weather from the Brocken to Halberstadt

      This morning we set off for the Harz at 4:30 a.m., Golden October was announced. And fully fulfilled, great hiking weather, the view a bit hazy (it's autumn), the picture, I think, have also become something. It is a super nice path if you leave out the 2 local crossing, which you can walk as a ridge path or below. The castle with its park is definitely worthwhile as a separate excursion.

      Today's tour is once again from the "bankruptcies, bad luck and breakdowns" section.
      This time a very high proportion of "natural trails" or wilderness trails or "trails not available". Before starting the tour, I should have packed the chainsaw. The southeastern part of the trail is non-existent as a trail that had something like scouts.
      In the forest east of the moor, I felt like I was on a shooting range. All residences are numbered (will probably be auctioned on the Internet), set up on free shooting ranges, reminiscent of feudal times when the authorities also drove the game to the gun.
      And the final highlight about 1.5 km on the country road without a bike path, so always keep an eye on the enemy.
      The conclusion, it was once again adventurous and we didn't meet anyone on the way.

      Realized the tip from #Dolle today and turned a round at the end of the Purple Weeks in Röders Heide.
      The first 3 pictures were taken on the journey.
      Start with a cloudless sky, half past seven, in the hope of beguiling purple prospects, but the gray reality was quickly there, eyes closed and through, hope dies last.
      On the B3 I was able to take several photos without being disturbed by the traffic, there was none, too early for city dwellers.
      And then the mist-shrouded heather, gray-purple, wow, very special‼ ️😱. The cawing of the ravens and the permanent rustling of the not far away motorway complete the zenerie.
      Around 11 the sun then slowly fought its way through, so that the 2nd part of this tour brought the radiant purple🤩.
      A great tour, even without Lila, this piece of the heath is definitely worth a trip if you don't feel like visiting Touriheide👍👍👍

      Experiencing the heather in purple is something great. The plan was to climb some of the 100ths of the Lüneburg Heath and enjoy the view, unfortunately, besides me, a lot of walkers, hikers and cyclists had the same idea. There was a lot of crowd on the Wilseder Berg, all the tourist restaurants were full and the e-cyclists were out on the narrowest paths. On some trails I ask myself whether cyclists on a path 30 cm wide don't expect pedestrians, judging by the looks I got, and the pedestrian has to jump into the bushes.
      In the late afternoon the sun came out, so that you had a great view of the dead ground.
      All's well that ends well and the next time you will be on a weekday or in the early morning ;-))

      Today's tour unfortunately has a bad taste. First, I noticed that the area benefited from the exploitation of prisoners of war in two world wars. And secondly, the monoculture cultivation of maize for biogas plants, the alibi summer flower fields as a substitute for the insects do not help either. ... Money makes the world go round... :-((

      Today's tour was once again inspired by the Via Romea.
      From previous tours on this pilgrimage route, I knew that it was asphalt-heavy. When planning, I looked for alternatives and also planned and inserted some sections according to the aerial photo, in the hope of coming across unmapped forest and field paths.
      On the first off-grit section, through the two cornfields, I ran past the first borehole. In the course of the hike I saw 5 to 6 others. During the course of the hike, it occurred to me again: 2x higher incidence rate of a certain cancer in men in the municipality of Bothel than the national average. The cause was suspected to be the fracking used by Exxon.
      krebsmagazin.de/fracking-und-krebs-niedersachsisches-krebsregister-bestatigt-erhohte-neu Krankungsrate-an-leukamien-und-lymphomen-bei-mannern-in-der-samtgemeinde-bothel-landkreis-rotenburgwumme/
      The 2nd off grit section turned out to be one of those unmapped dirt roads, especially since an overhead telephone line was permanently above me.
      The third section, south of Hertel, is even signposted as a hiking trail.
      The remaining 2 are more for the tough ones, the paths can be guessed but are overgrown and you have to follow the animal paths.
      The last approx. 2 km are probably the worst, on a county road without a cycle path: - (((
      Conclusion, quite varied, few corn fields, quite a lot of meadows and pastures. New art installations have been added to Neuenkirchen this year.
      The complete insect and tick protection has been used up and it tends to be more of a cycling area, good network of paths.
