Monday's geohash was located in a walled-in backyard in a residential neighbourhood within Tucson itself. The alley behind the property was judged to be the closest accessible point.
After being dropped off in the vicinity, I made a short trip by foot through stravenue and alley to the geohash. I finished my cigarette and surveyed the rather unremarkable area, took a few pictures, and headed out for the bus stop. I only took the bus on the way out, so haven't got the Public Transport Geohash achievement yet.
One person showed up around 3:45 PM.

On my way to the geohash, as I was getting close, I was buzzed by an U.S. Air Force C-130 Hercules, flying quite low, with suspicious-looking bulges near the tail. After the geohash, two F-16 Fighting Falcons came around. I suspect that the U.S. government is conducting surveillance of geohashing activities, using aerial reconnaissance and surveillance assets. Furthermore, at the geohash the night before, I was harassed by some kind of raptor (!!), likely an owl. It was probably carrying some ultra-miniaturized camera, possibly infrared or low-light gear, keeping tabs on any passing geohashers.
