Gigantic pieces of cake

Tough hikers on the Ottilienberg

Rain, rain, and more rain. No only in the forecast, but all through the night and in the morning, too. At least it was not a heavy downpour, but still… I was doubtful if the other eight group members would show up for the hike. After all, “Will Hike for Cake” does not sound like a group for survival training. I was so doubtful that I even downloaded a few caches in the morning. At least I would be occupied on the trail in case everyone was going to be a no-show.

I need not have worried. On the train we were already three people, a fourth one got on mid-way. At the train station in Eppingen, the remaining five hikers were already waiting.

Throughout the hike, not a single complaint. Instead, we laughed a lot and even the first-timers were not shy and cracked a lot of jokes.

And although I had feared for our coffee and cake after, we got a place outside, sheltered by sunshades that also kept off the rain. Furthermore, we were rewarded with gigantic pieces of cake.
