In a canal by a residential neighborhood near the Fort Lauderdale airport and even nearer its offsite Park 'n Save lots.



I don't know if there's an achievement for hashpoints located right next to a place that I was planning on going to the same day even before knowing about the hashpoint, but this one would qualify except for the fact that I didn't technically exactly get there.

When traveling out of the Fort Lauderdale airport, I normally park at the Park 'n Save offsite lots. Today was no exception; I was flying up to New York for Thanksgiving, and was going to park at that lot as usual. I was amazed to find out that today's geohash was not 1000 feet from the lot. Unfortunately, it was in a canal, and I wasn't about to get my clothes wet just before getting on a plane, so the closest I got was maybe 10 or 20 feet away... it appeared to be just off the dock on the far side of the canal from the Park 'n Save. After getting the close-but-not-quite-there picture, I parked and flew as scheduled.
