[edit] Meetup

The actual location ended up being at an encampment where a bunch of RVs had staked out a piece of ground near Angeles Forest Rd. on the outskirts of Acton. Frisbee was played on the field next to the encampment: a bit of dry ground with some illegal dumping and hundreds of killer snakes. (OK, maybe just one snake of undetermined lethality.)

There were at least four people from three different groups there.

Afterwards, In-N-Out was eaten. The Settlers of Catan was discussed.

[edit] Planning

So once again, the coordinates are at a convenient location (right off a highway), and happen to be in yet another part of town: Palmdale, in Antelope Valley. Anyone up for a drive to the nice hot desert? Those coming from LA could probably take the Angeles Forest Highway there, which is bound to be a very nice (winding) drive. -- IlyaHaykinson 15:35, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

By the way, here's what the area looks like: Live Search Maps. -- IlyaHaykinson 15:39, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
  • There is a restaurant near there called Vincent Hill Station. It seems to have pretty positive reviews. Maybe after we explore the area thoroughly and enjoy what the geohash has to offer to the fullest extent possible, we could go there. Daniel 15:49, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
PS my roommate and I will definitely be there with Boggle, Settlers of Catan, and a Novelty Flying Disc. Daniel 18:39, 7 June 2008 (UTC)
  • It appears that a dedicated eco-warrior could take the Metrolink train to Acton station, which is very near the hash. The problem is that trains do not run frequently on the weekend. There is a train that gets there at 4:15, but, the return trip doesn't leave until 6:45. --Mike 18:43, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
