The location is in front of a house, so we parked just up the road. It was a 60 mile dirt bike ride there and back for us, my dirt bike used almost all the gas just getting there, but somehow made it home, very fun journey.

Looks like farmland southwest of Joliet, near Dwight. As intrigued as I am, at $4.15 a gallon, I'm not sure I'd want to head out there without any kind of certainty that there will be others doing it too. If I'm going to end up standing in a cornfield by myself, I'm pretty sure I can find a place to do that closer to home. (unsigned)

[edit] People

My brother and I, after I convinced him to come. We left there a little early, but I have a felling no one else showed up, correct me if wrong!

A barn at about the area of the location.
Looking South on a very pretty day. ( The exact Geohash location is just up this road a bit. )
North, from whence we came.
Our dirt bikes.
