I had stayed up late the night before making French Toast so by the time I checked the coordinates it was to late to make my usual bike trip. So I decided to drive out later that night.
The geohash was located on a tiny island that I had not known even existed. By around 2000 I reached the small and only bridge to Westham island. Although I definitely wasn't expecting a four lane suspension bridge, I also wasn't prepared for the single lane tiny wooden edifice I discovered. Somewhat unsure if it was even meant for vehicle traffic, I closed my eyes and drove.
Having made it safely across the treacherous crossing I took the second right onto what I thought would be a nice quiet road. Although it did turn out to be quiet, it also turned out to be a single car width wide, and bordered by a ditch and a farm fence.
I made the the half kilometer to the hash point, realized I hadn't brought a flashlight, and that the nibs had fallen out of my pocket as I had exited my van.
I had to pull a 17 point turn to free my car, and almost ended up in the ditch, but I managed to make it back to safe land and home once again.
