[edit] Story

A blog post about our trip -- This link is no longer working. See talk.

So following xkcd’s geohash algorithm, we went out to Encinitas to hit our point for Saturday.

Side story: We left home at around 2:45PM to Fry’s since Kristi’s Garmin (GPS) didn’t display coordinates. We got to Fry’s probably around 3:15 to pick up a GPS that showed coordinates. (Garmin Nuvi 200!!) Anyway, we were able to get to the front of the Fry’s line (it was around 3:30 and we still needed to get to Encinitas at 4:00PM for the scheduled meeting time - around 15 miles away) thanks to the badass Fry’s salesman that sold me the Nuvi after I told him we were in a rush. We ended up making it to the meetup point in Encinitas at 3:58 and got pictures at exactly 4:00PM. So the Hero of the Day award goes to the nameless Fry’s salesman.

[edit] Pictures!

This picture was taken exactally at 4:00. When I pushed the trigger of the camera the screen showed 3:59, but the picture recorded 4:00.

Special thanks to the four wheeled tripod which was parked next to us.
