This date's coordinates were the first reached by a team of three members from the Lincoln, NE graticule, and most likely the first coordinates to be reached in this graticule. Unfortunately, no one thought to take a picture actually showing the coordinates with us there with them, so all these are to be taken on faith.

The adventurous team.
The view to the northwest.
The exact coordinates (to within a few meters).

The team arrived at the coordinates at approximately 5:00pm local time. The group included Spike and his two friends, Brittany and Michelle. It was quite interesting to see how much the area had changed since the last time Google Maps last took satellite photos of the area (for example, the apparently recent construction of several new homes in the area and removal of smaller wooded areas). Once the mission was complete, the team noticed that they were but a few miles from Platte River State Park, and so they made a secondary excursion there, finding beautiful scenery and a plethora of mosquitoes and mud.
