The hash coordinates are in a private backyard along a major road in north-west Longmont. Geohashers unwilling to make new friends with random neighbors can stand on the sidewalk side of the fence and be within ten meters of the official coordinates.
The hash coordinates were six kilometers (straight line) from my house, across Longmont. I set out shortly before noon in the light rain. (If the weather had been nicer, I would have biked, but given the rain, I drove.) The actual coordinates were just inside someone's back yard, but quite close to the fence on the south side of 17th Street. I reached the fence at 11:40 MDT and did my best to take a self-portrait. This is somewhat harder with an SLR camera; I had to aim and hope I got it right. My GPS receiver indicated I was between seven and twelve meters from the actual cache location as I took the picture. I'm counting this as "officially close enough".
