[edit] About

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.

[edit] Jaeger

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".
