On my last holiday I mapped some missing trails and paths in the Black Forest, between Seibelseckle and Ruhestein:

Three times I have been asked by other tourists how to get to destination X. Three times I could answer the questions using openstreetmaps on the Nokia N810, and three times I gave away the german language flyers.

I’m still disappointed by the tracks that the WBT-201 records. The accuracy is horrible, and the bluetooth connection goes down frequently, though the devices are just a couple of millimeters apart.

Besides that, I took some pictures.

Here’s some dead wood, which was perforated by some “furniture beetles”:

At the “Wildsee” (see the topmost image) I found those fungi:

Here’s some shot of a woodland strawberry:

Besides fungi, I find lichen very interesting. Found on trees, those usually indicate a very good quality of the air:

And finally, here’s the absolute highlight of the today’s tour – a viper:
