These coordinates were reached by Virginia late in the afternoon, and may be the first coordinates found in the Schaumburg, IL graticule. They were found to be in the front lawn of an antiques mall, prompting the owner to question why Virginia was walking in circles and scrutinizing her handheld electronics instead of purchasing old things. This lead to an interesting conversation, and a new geohashing convert maybe.
