[edit] About

From Google maps, the coordinates are observed to be in some light woods, or perhaps an orchard. The point lies perhaps 10 feet off a trail leading to County Road 29 about 600 yards away. Should be no trouble. Benson is going to shoot for a Midnight Geohash.

In fact, the trees visible in Google are pines, and seem to have grown substantially since that imagery was acquired. The trail was in fact passable with a passenger car, but a truck would have been a better choice.

Benson earned the Virgin Graticule Achievement
by being the first to reach any hashpoint in the (41, -85) graticule, here, on 2008-09-12.
