These Independence Day coordinates fell right in the middle of Moraine View State Recreation Area, about 40 miles northwest of Champaign/Urbana.
Brett made it to the coordinates around 4 PM. The point was conveniently located where a horse trail crossed the main road into the park. Brett hiked a few tens of feet up the trail and placed a flag at the coordinates, which fell next to a pleasing meadow. He waited for a while and watched several groups pass on horseback, but no other geohashers showed up. He then hiked one of the trails near Dawson Lake, a man-made reservoir at the center of the park.
