The accursed hash
This location appears to be within 20m of a highway I've taken many, many times -- it's on the way from home to my parents' house. It's the hashpoint for my Displaced origin geohash achievement in the Sparta, Wisconsin graticule. But do I even get the Curse of Unawareness ribbon? No, because it's for a retrohash.
On 2012-12-06, we made a quick trip from Platteville (WI) to Minneapolis (MN) for a funeral. We travelled up Highway 27 intentionally in order to visit the retrohash. We got there around 10 p.m., I guess. It was easy to find, in the boundary strip along the side of the road, but the GPS dance seemed to take forever. Luckily, it was completed, and I was back in the car, before the state patrol officer pulled over to see why were parked by the side of the road with my hazard lights on. I told him I had stopped to screw around with my GPS, which was the truth, I guess, and satisfied him without requiring me to explain the displaced origin geohash achievement. The rest of the trip went without incident, and I entertained myself during the late-night drive by imagining the space of hypothetically possible variations of my conversation with the patrolman.
