[edit] About

A not-so-public triangle, apparently claimed by the owner of this house.

Edited this page earlier; may have attempted a visit.

Went out with the family and saw the Mariners win a game. It's easy to get tickets when a team has 99 losses on the season. After that I saw that Jim had edited the page and Robyn asked "So, did you make it?" and I wondered the same thing. Why not attempt a Midnight Geohash?

First of all, either Zillow is lying about the property lines (which is unlikely) or else the owner of the house next door has decided to expand his domain a little. The triangle was completely fenced in, with a lovely sign (pictured below if blurry). <rant> Owner of what will maintain? This "owner" probably doesn't pay taxes on this land, or at least any more taxes than every city resident pays. Sheesh! </rant>

Okay, so I didn't bring my wire cutters with me, and didn't feel like knocking on the door to claim my public space and wake the neighborhood. I settled for walking around the fence, measuring and GPSing where I could. A large tree cut out some signal, but I managed to get within 11 meters of the spot.

Midnight measurements done, I headed home. Will this be part of a Consecutive Geohash for me? Only time will tell, if the flaky Dow start numbers will allow that is.
