The next recap story is about the 2nd mission with Fred and Nikki. The spot search brought us one of the sickest winch-spots I have seen so far! The “Zeche Zollverein” at Essen in the so called “Ruhrgebiet”. An area where coal-mining was one of the main industries for quite a long time. The spot is now a protected cultural place and that is another point why it was so special to be able to winch there.

Here are some impressions I took with my pocket-cam during the spotcheck:
